If you are concerned that some of your pupils may not be on track to achieve basic Maths and English skills before they leave school, and that they would benefit from one-on-one tutoring, Students4Students might be able to help!
"Their confidence has grown" - Teacher from Windale Primary School
We understand that teachers are under a great deal of time-pressure, and can't always devote as much one-on-one time to pupils who aren't fulfilling the potential as they would like too. This is where our tutors come in. By reinforcing what has been learnt in lessons, or by pre-teaching material to increase pupils' confidence in the classroom, we believe we can help to make a real difference to the educational outcomes of those most in need.
Our tutors are high-achievers from some of the countries top universities and schools. They undergo a rigorous selection process, ensuring only the most capable and motivated students are chosen. Everyone is fully DBS checked before being accepted. After this, our selected tutors undergo extensive training covering teaching methods, child welfare, and professionalism as well as key learning tools and the importance of encouraging a growth mindset.
Moreover the Students4Students team work closely with schools and teachers to select tutoring topics. We do this to ensure that we are complimenting what you as a school are already providing the pupils. We believe that by complimenting your teaching our tutors will be able instill confidence and curiosity in your students, helping them to love learning and fulfill their own potential.
"They are engaged and excited to do the tuition" - Teacher from Windale Primary School
Once a week
One hour - although this can be split into two half an hour sessions with different children
The sessions are in the school day and are generally in the afternoons. The exact times depend upon your timetables and the availability of the tutors
We require tutors to do at least one term of tutoring but generally look for tutors who can do more
The sessions will be at your school. We ask that you provide a quiet place for the tutors to work in
We currently run Maths and English tutoring
The only formal requirement we have is for tutors to have 5A*-C's (GCSE) and for two of those to be Maths and English. We also interview all tutors where we look for enthusiasm and a willingness to improve and learn
All tutors you will have to take part in two sets of mandatory training before they start. The first is child welfare training and the second is our 'tutoring guide'. The 'tutoring guide' gives the tutors the skills to begin tutoring. Once they tutors begin working with the children there will be other training opportunities to ensure that they keep improving as a tutor
All of our tutors are DBS checked and complete an online course in child welfare. We follow the most stringent guidelines to ensure that the child's safety is never in any doubt
Students4Students endeavors to make the whole process as easy and cost free for everyone involved. The only things we ask from you is that you provide our tutors with somewhere they can work and that you provide them with the information and basic resources needed to ensure they are complimenting your teaching
The application process is nice and simple. Just email our school liaison officer Lauren who will arrange the next steps
