I would like to take the opportunity to say how impressed we were with Lucie's tutoring skills. Following a poor result in Maths prelim our daughter's confidence was at rock-bottom. Lucie established a good rapport from the outset and her calm, methodical and encouraging approach to her tutoring was exactly what Molly needed to give her faith in her ability to tackle the subject and inspire her to work hard for her exams. Our daughter came out of her Standard Grade exam saying that she had found it easy because she knew exactly how to tackle each question - and she has achieved a Grade 1 (up from 2/4 in the prelim). She is very happy and going forward to her fifth year with renewed enthusiasm.

Coronavirus Policy And a Tutoring Service Solution
Dear Tutors, Parents and Students
Of course many of you had decided to discontinue face to face tuittion before Governement isolation rules stopped face to face study options.
When school resumes after an extended summer break, students will be faced with a rapid change of pace as they emerge from a very long break, immediately into a full-on programme of study. This unprecedented study gap is a concern . Many of our parents and students are worried that the very long break will have a damaging effect on study focus, study habits and, momentum.
Be assured: If you wish to continue studies, face to face tutoring can continue normally and effectively online.
A growing number have already moved to online tutoring using Skype or similar video tutoring. As you may know, we have been offering online one-to-one tuition for some years with some clients and tutors using our bespoke VIRTUAL ONLINE CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT whilst others are happy with the more basic but effective tools offered by Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp, and others.
Online works very well and has some surprising and attractive advantages over being physically adjacent, for example, it’s very flexible in terms of timing and fitting in with busy lifestyles.
- The tools available in the online classroom allow for the real-time electronic exchange of documents, past papers and "live" working.
- It can take place anywhere a laptop or desktop is available, minimising disruption.
- It’s as easy to monitor as a physically present tutor and student.
- It facilitates instant video records of tuition.
We understand that many are reluctant and prefer the difficult to express "advantages" of a physical meeting for tuition. However, it’s our experience that clients and tutors become comfortable quickly in the online environment and often do not go back to a purely physical tutoring environment.
This will be an important decision at this time for students. However, it’s one ideal solution open to clients and tutors during a difficult time for all.
If you want to discuss it further or move to online straightaway then check out our dedicated online tutoring page.
