I can support and encourage pupils:

  • To build and embed fluency and confidence for exams and tests
  • To accelerate progress, attainment and achievement
  • To develop a positive mindset and become confident and willing independent learners
  • To gain mastery in concepts and to make progress at their own pace
  • To achieve their full potential
  • To manage their anxieties towards their learning

Mission

Tutor Interventions came to fruition in April 2018, because I wanted to spend my time teaching students who needed support, as opposed to other increasing demands placed upon a teacher within a school environment. Building positive relationships with students is important! Making progress and moving towards mastery for the student's benefit, not for statistics or shareholders.

Each session is spent focusing on the student's needs and requirements, using a multi-sensory approach and a variety of strategies and resources. These can include the use of games, puzzles and the online learning spaces – Mathletics and Spellodrome.

  • Tutor Interventions provides tuition in a calm and stress free environment – the student's home.
  • Tutor Interventions provide a one to one student centred approach.
  • Tutor Interventions focuses on using a 'multi-sensory' approach to learning.
  • Tutor Interventions helps to encourage a positive mindset and is mindful of the student's health and wellbeing.
  • Tutor Interventions endeavours to make learning fun again.
  • Tutor Interventions allows a safe space for students to make mistakes without feeling embarrassed.
  • Tutor Interventions helps students to go from “I find this tricky” to “I can do it”.
