Our Tutoring will include the following:

Engagement: Hands on Engaging activities that connect learning to real life and make it relevant to the students

Variety: We use a variety of styles to teach a lesson, talking, reading, writing and other methods.

Questions: We don’t ask for facts or answers, our tutors use open ended questions to encourage the students to participate in the learning activity. 

Prompting: We believe in giving prompts to help students think and arrive at the correct response.  It is not just a right or wrong answer, but how do you arrive at the answer.

Self –Correction: We help our students work through the steps they did wrong and how to correct it to get the right answer, this promotes better learning and build confidence.

Observation: Tutors are trained to look for errors in students work, and not just errors in the final answer.  This observation helps to direct students to the point of mistake and prevent future mistakes.

Discussion: Our questions and self-correction leads to more elaborate discussion and fact finding sessions.  This helps establish deeper and wider understanding

Praise: We give our students praise for effort, we praise them publicly, and we praise them through small appropriate incentives
