professional development seminar attended by our tutors

This week, our tutors took the opportunity to further develop their pedagogical skills by attending a Professional Development Seminar focused on structuring effective lessons. Sharing experience and learning from experienced professional teachers, our tutors exchanged ideas about using creative and interactive teaching techniques in order to further enhance the effectiveness of their one-to-one lessons.

The monthly Seminars are a part of the Professional Development strategy at Trefoil Tutors, which helps ensure that the quality of our lessons is consistently high, as well as provide our tutors with ample opportunity to develop their pedagogical skills.

Mr. and Mrs. Payload were walking home from the shopping mall with their purchases when Mr. Payload began to complain that his load was too heavy.

Mrs. Payload turned to her husband and said, “I don’t know what you’re complaining about because if you gave me one of your parcels, I would have twice as many as you, and if I gave you just one of mine, we would have equal loads.”

How many parcels were each carrying?



Our warmest congratulations go to those of our tutees who have received their GCSE and A-level results this summer!

We are very proud to see so many of our tutees rewarded for their hard work with excellent results. In particular, we would like to wish the best of luck to those starting university studies in October – we hope you will enjoy every moment of this new chapter!

How many crossings were necessary to get the happy clan across the river and? Give an example of how they would cross.
