What Are You Going To Do at The First Session?
If your Mum or Dad has said that you can do a session with Confidence Boost Tutoring, here’s what’s going to happen:
You are going to meet one of our principle tutors. Your tutor is going to sit down with you and your mum or dad, and listen to you. They won’t try to fix you, tell you off, or try to make you feel bad. We want to know how things are going at school, what you like doing for fun, and what you’d like to do when you finish.
We might ask you to do some reading and writing, and even a bit of Maths. But don’t worry – it’s not a test! By doing a little bit of work, she can see what you are really good at, and what skills you need to learn. That way, when you start tutoring, it’s not boring, and you start learning things that make you feel better at school.
I’m a Bit Worried About Doing Tutoring
That’s ok. Really.
Just remember that tutoring is for you. It’s something that you do to have fun, and to learn things that will make life easier when you’re at school. And guess what? You don’t even have to tell anyone that you’re starting tutoring (but you can if you think it will help your friends too).
Why Would Mum and Dad Put Me in Tutoring?
Your Mum and Dad aren’t letting you go to tutoring because you did anything wrong. If your Mum or Dad want you to do tutoring, it’s because they really, really care about you. They don’t want you to be frustrated at school, and they want to make life easy for you.
By going to tutoring, they want to make sure that you can do all the things that will make you feel happier when you’re at school. Students who see us getter better grades, don’t have to work as hard to do well, and start to understand what their teacher is really saying to them
Sound good so far?
Am I Too Old For Tutoring?
No-one is too old for tutoring. University students have to have tutoring, and even adults get tutored sometimes. Do you go to school? Then no way are you too old. Our tutors have worked with kids in primary school, students in high school, and even adults. Everyone who is at tutoring gets to improve – it doesn’t matter how old you are.
