Specialist Tuition and Interventions From Teaching Personnel - Raising Standards in Education

Tutor Assignments

It is vital that tuition programmes are designed to meet individual pupil's requirements.  The programme for each child should be agreed between the pupil's class teacher and the tutor.

What types of tuition are available?

One-to-One Tuition

A Price Waterhouse Coopers report on the effectiveness of one-to-one tuition concluded that this type of teaching and learning can be highly effective.  The headline conclusions from a survey carried out as part of this study said:

"Tuition appeared to have had a positive impact on pupil engagement. Nine out of ten tutors and 72% of teachers surveyed believed one-to-one tuition had supported primary and secondary school pupils to become more engaged in their own learning and progression. Pupils themselves echoed this finding. The positive ripple effect of tuition was most commonly attributed to increased confidence, resulting in pupils trying harder and performing better in class".

As a tutor you may be required to support students across different year groups and specialisms, whether this be Year 7 Catch-Up, supporting a Looked After Child with their learning, raising attainment levels for disadvantaged students, or delivering valuable revision support prior to SATs, Phonics Testing, and GCSE or A Level Exams.

Tuition bookings can be booked from a minimum of three hours and up to as long as it is needed by the school so flexibility will be required to provide the service the schools require.

Small Group Tuition Sessions

For some schools, tuition on a one-to-one basis may not be feasible and in some instances, pupils prefer to be in small groups when receiving additional support.  Tuition-Works assists schools wishing to offer pupils the opportunity to 'catch up' with their peers and further accelerate their learning in a group learning environment. 

The length of these assignments will vary depending on the number and size of each group of pupils.

Holiday Revision Courses

Tuition-Works offers schools and pupils the opportunity to raise attainment through attendance at school holiday revision courses.  There is widespread belief within the increasingly competitive further and higher education market, that revision courses can offer pupils of all ages the additional support to help them reach their full potential.  Tuition-Works also supports schools introducing summer schools for Year 7 pupils during their transition from primary to secondary school.

These assignments will provide tutors with income during school holiday periods as well as providing a valuable boost to learning for each pupil.

Additional Support for Looked After Children

Where schools have 'Looked After Children' at the school, Tuition-Works can provide tutors to provide additional teaching support to these pupils where required.  These assignments will vary in length and could take place during the school day, at weekends, during school holidays and possibility in the evenings.  Whilst the majority of assignments will be on school premises, tutors may also be asked to tutor at the pupil's home.
