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".
Through our Tuition-Works service, Teaching Personnel can help you staff and implement effective programmes of one-to-one tuition. From a small number of pupils to much larger numbers, we have the skills and experience
required to ensure effective programmes of one-to-one tuition are efficiently delivered ensuring your pupils receive the maximum benefit.
Mirroring the success of the national programme of one-to-one tuition, we would aim to provide 10 hours of one-to-one tuition for each pupil in order for them to receive maximum benefit and significantly improve the likelihood of raising a pupil's level
of attainment. We also believe the most effective programmes require tutors to spend an hour with the child's class teacher prior to the commencement of tuition and once the ten hours have been delivered. This ensures planning and evaluation are given the
appropriate level of consideration and the best outcomes are delivered
Small Group Tuition
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 can assist schools wishing to offer pupils the opportunity to ‘catch up’ with their peers and further accelerate their learning in a group learning environment. On a small group basis, we are able to provide tutors for interventions
in maths and English as well as other curriculum subjects. Based on input from your classteachers our tutors will work to a set plan and feedback on learning outcomes at the end of each group tuition programme.
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.
With funding now available to help Year 7 pupils with the transition from primary to secondary school,
Tuition-Works can provide schools with high calibre teachers and learning support assistants during the summer holidays. Our summer school provision is not restricted to this age group and we are eager to support any school with their summer
school staffing requirements.
Additional Support for Looked After Children
It is likely that you will be working closely with your local authority to ensure ‘Looked After Children’ that require extra support, receive extra support! Teaching Personnel has provided tutors specifically to help ‘Looked After Children’ and our
Tuition-Works service can help you provide teachers and teaching assistants to ensure those who would benefit have access to a range of additional tuition opportunities.
