Tutoring With A Twist is all about throwing the norm out the window and doing things a little bit differently. Normally tutors and teachers begin with the subject or skill that the student needs to learn but I want to turn this on it’s head and begin with a REALLY JUICY QUESTION! I believe by switching things round you can guarantee a much more interesting session than if you begin with thinking about the skills you need to teach and then trying to make it fun.
I have had a long and very varied teaching carer so far, so I am very flexible and creative and love finding different and imaginative new ways to provide exciting and personalised learning opportunities. I know how to find lots of opportunities for learning in any situation, so I know I could use an exciting hook as a starting point to teach almost anything.
Tutoring With A Twist is project-based and all students will have produced their own unique piece of work (whatever that may be) at the end of each course. The way the sessions work is we meet for an initial consultation to talk through the needs of your child and what subjects or skills they need to work on. (If you do not live locally but would still like to give Tutoring With A Twist a go then please still get in contact because we still might be able to accommodate this through online learning.) In this first session I will also give your child the first Project Prompt to investigate and some tips how they could get started and what they could put in their project. From then it is up to you how often we meet. I can do weekly sessions, teaching a particular skill, or I could meet with you again when you have finished your Project Prompt and are ready for another one, or we could do a mixture of something in between. Whatever works best for you.
If you think this sounds like a fun way to learn something new then please get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you.
