Mentoring Tutors

Academic mentors prove to be valuable to any student, especially those starting their first year at an academic institution, as a source of support and advice. At Tavistock Tutors, we match students with the perfect mentor – an older student enrolled in the same institution and studying the same course who can provide guidance throughout the learning process.

This peer-to-peer relationship enables substantial academic and pastoral advantages. A mentor will ensure students are aware of campus resources and offer honest advice about the modules from a student’s perspective that the lecturers might not provide. This ‘insider-advice’ is vitally important for any new student at an institution – mentors know exactly what a course will be like because they’ve done it themselves.

I think of tutoring like a conversation (the fancy educationalist word is ‘dialogic), and that exchange starts before we meet. After speaking with the family I ask for writing samples before our first session so I can perform a diagnostic exercise and assess strengths, weaknesses and potential objectives.

My approach to tuition is tailored to the individual. I will look through a student’s art work and discuss this with them in person, alongside the goals they have for the tuition and for the future. It is important for me to gain a student’s understanding of their own work so that we can work out a responsive programme that...

As a science and maths tutor, I animate and energise every area of study, especially those areas that a student has previously considered dull and disinteresting. I always promote the most thorough understanding and spirit of inquiry, and through the unique interests of the individual, I build long-lasting connections with the most fascinating areas of each subject, forming a firm...

In general tuition should be an antidote to school teaching. I offer a non-school approach that treats the student as an individual. There is no one method of one to one tuition because every student is unique. The right approach is to work with the student to find a method that works for them and I enjoy the puzzle of working...

The most important thing is to know and understand the student in front of you and find the right approach to express their potential. There is no goal that can’t be reached once you found the right way of teaching. I’m very enthusiastic and I always try to transfer my passion to my students. Very often people fail in a subject just...
