At Top of the Class Professional Tuition, we believe that people achieve greater goals when they work together as a team. Our goal is to provide you with the network of support needed to help your child achieve their academic goals. There are 5 players in this team. They are as follows:
No one knows your child as well as you do, and no one else is better suited to guide their direction in life than what you are. Your tutor will provide you with constant feedback about your child’s progress and continuously seek your feedback to assist them with formulating strategies.
Being constructivist teachers, we believe that a student learns best when they have control over their own learning. Your tutor will provide your child with choices at each step along the way, and ensure that their learning is structured in a way that your child enjoys and feels comfortable about.
Your tutor is your families own private expert and is flexible to help you in whatever ways you require. Regardless of their background or qualifications, we hand select tutors based on their proven ability to communicate effectively and build confidence in young people. All our tutors are trained by our agency in our teaching philosophies and coaching techniques.
Most tutoring agencies simply hook you up with a tutor, collect the enrolment fees and play no other role. At Top of the Class Professional Tuition, we have an ongoing relationship with our families by providing constant support and ongoing access to our parent resources. You will have access to our parent helpline, our online forums as well as regular email newsletters which contain a wealth of information and advice.
Your child’s school is already playing a fundamental part in your son or daughters education and we should not forget that their school teachers are extremely valuable assets in your child’s education. Our belief is that the best tuition is done in conjunction with the education your school is already providing. We will be in regular communication with your child’s school teachers to ensure that your tutor is following their class curriculum. Moreover, many school teachers are well aware of their students’ needs which cannot reasonably be attended to in class. Many teachers are therefore delighted to find that one of their students is receiving extra help outside of the classroom, and are only too happy to advise tutors on how keep close to the path their class is heading.
Your tutor will have a chat with you about your concerns, your goals and your suggestions. They are likely to ask you about your observations of your child and will ask you questions about your child’s attitudes, what kind of things are they are most interested in, what kind of situations make them feel threatened, as well as various other questions that will help them paint a picture of your child’s situation and what strategies may be useful to assist with their tuition. Your tutor will also have an introductory interview with your child to assess numerous factors such as what areas they may be struggling with, what interests and personal strengths they already have and what learning style they are best suited to.
This session usually takes approximately 1 hour. After the session is over, your tutor will chat to you about their assessment and discuss a plan of action for how your child’s tuition should proceed. They will also be in contact with your child’s school teachers to ask for their feedback and assistance for their extra-curricular tuition. Here at the agency, we will also be in touch, providing you with helpful resources and advice to support your tutors program.
