Matching Up

matching

Bright Star Tutoring is passionate about matching the right tutor to each student. A huge amount of time and effort goes into ensuring that both parties are entirely happy and able to work to the best of their ability, with the end goal of achieving the best results possible. We believe the ideal matching of tutor to student really is the key to success.

Two Simple Steps: 

1. Needs of the student

Every tutoring enquiry we receive is different. We look in depth at the needs of the student; – their current school, the exams they’re under taking, their place within their class, as well as their learning style and how they like to process information. We always talk extensively to the parents and meet the student where necessary in advance of matching any tutor.

2. Skills of the tutor 

We’re incredibly proud of the wide range of skills held by our tutors. From Grade 8 violin players to History of Art graduates, with experts in each exam field, we genuinely feel we have all bases covered. We’ll match an appropriate tutor to a student based on them being able to offer everything the student requires to achieve their individual goals.

 

 

Pen and Pencil

penHow often do you write at length with a pen and paper these days? It may in fact be little more than a scribbled shopping list or a reminder post it note. So it’s an interesting topic for children and students who are growing up in an ever increasingly digital world and often struggle to see the “point” in practicing their handwriting….

Bright Star Tutoring appreciates that many children will be working on laptops and iPads within years of entering pre school. However we also see Handwriting as an absolutely essential skill and one that encompasses so much more than simply a legible answer on an exam paper.

We constantly monitor and assess our student’s handwriting and presentation skills, offering tips and advice on how to always secure the marks that are often offered for these, on exam papers at all ages.

Practicing handwriting helps to develop fine motor skills, to focus a child’s mind on the task at hand, to bring about a closer connection that a keypad and computer simply doesn’t muster and achieve a sense of discipline that many students actually begin to enjoy.
