Tutors attend Seminar on Lesson Planning

This week, our tutors Tom, Will, Ria, Arjun, Danielle attended a Professional Development Seminar on Lesson Planning led by Vivek Gathani. Tutors had the opportunity to work with a professional teacher and learn more about pedagogical theory, as well as discuss ways to adapt this knowledge to a one-to-one tutoring setting. The tutors picked up useful ideas for new activities to be used when working with pupils, in order to make sure the lessons are engaging and interactive.
