Educational goal posts are continually being moved ever higher, first with the introduction of the A* at GCSE and now the introduction of the A* at A level. Is it any wonder then that students are feeling under immense pressure?
The Easter break is a crucial time in the run up to the summer exams. All too often the spring term will end in frenzied activity in an attempt to finish the syllabus. The Easter break is a time for students to calmly take stock of what has been learnt, organise their work and get their head down to serious revision.
Realising time is precious our courses are extremely flexible, enabling students to study as many or as few subjects as they require spending between 1-5 days on the courses. All our groups are kept small enabling us to provide a high quality personalised service. The benefit of a low tutor to pupil ratio is :
- Far greater interaction in the group creates an atmosphere that is far more interesting and conducive to learning and,
- A small group allows for plenty of one to one help with the tutor. Very often even if a topic is not timetabled a tutor will make time to give the student help.
During the application stage students are asked to highlight the particular topic areas they would like help with. This information is sent to the relevant tutor as soon as it is received so that they have the time to build the specific needs of the students into each course.
A major part of the courses is the practise of exam questions and exam technique. However much subject matter is known, it is crucial to learn how to present that knowledge in an exam.
