Taking a Growth Mindset Approach
“Resilience means the ability to bounce back and we teach young people a range of techniques to enable them to do this better. There are a number of interesting ways in which this can be done. An example would be Growth Mindset theory which shows that if you understand that all abilities are developable – that abilities aren’t fixed – then of course how well you do something is not a comment on who you are. It just tells you where you are at in your ability to do it and you can go on to do that thing better.
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. "
We know, from personal experience as teachers, that despite all the amazing efforts that schools and staff make for their students, every year large numbers of once bright, enthusiastic, motivated students are not given the focus and individual attention to nurture their own innate ability.
We are all natural learners - you only have to look at the way a tiny baby scans its surroundings or watch a toddler investigating its surroundings to understand this.
Tuition provides a fantastic opportunity for students to rediscover this love and hunger for learning. The individual focus a tutor is able to offer a student provides so much more than just additional learning time. It creates a safe forum for students to test their understanding, to challenge without fear of judgement, to show their enthusiasm and pride. Tuition allows the student to once again fall in love with learning.
What People Say
Libby (Mrs) Melton Mowbray
My daughter had very low confidence in her maths skills. With Mike’s excellent help she flourished and went on to gain a grade 6 in her GCSE's. I would be happy to recommend Mike as a tutor.
Jo (Mrs) Oakham
Mike gave my brother enormous confidence for his GCSE maths exam. My brother achieved a grade that was three grades higher than his school predicted and I attribute this wholly to the help and support that he received from Mike.
Miriam (Mrs) Market Harborough
The best maths teacher I have ever had. I never thought I would pass my numeracy skills test and with brilliant guidance and expertise, he actually got me through it! Would 100% recommend it to anyone especially those who find maths particularly difficult.
