Our approach

meeting iconWe aim to boost the confidence and subsequent performance of tutees by identifying and addressing their weaknesses as early as possible. Whilst many students often have difficulties with the same topics in the sciences, each student has a preferred learning style. We aim to identify and exploit that style early in the process and then draw on appropriate resources to develop their understanding.

Our first meeting

meetingWe normally arrange a first meeting with the tutee and a parent. This no obligation meeting lasts no more than half an hour and is free of charge. The meeting enables us to find out as much as possible about the tutee's studies and what they would hope to gain from the tuition.  If at that stage, all parties are happy to proceed, then we normally conduct a one hour "diagnostic" tutorial to idetntify any areas of weakness. Thereafter we establish a regular tutorial slot.
