Between January 2nd and 10th, we will be hosting Winter Master Classes in Mathematics. Run by Vivek Gathani, teacher of mathematics and director of Trefoil Tutors, Master Classes are two-hour-long group study sessions on specific topics in mathematics. In each two-hour session, the tutor will work with a group of 2-4 pupils. The cost of one two-hour session is £40.
More information about the Master Classes and booking your place can be found here. We look forward to hearing from you!

We continue our series of Professional Development Seminars (PDS) designed to help our team of tutors stay up-to-date with the most recent developments in pedagogy and education. This month, the seminar was focused on designing appropriate and engaging homework.
All too often, a homework task becomes just another worksheet for forthe pupil to complete. That is why together with our tutors Nina, Milda, Vivek, Shaheel and Nickesh we discussed how a tutor can take a more creative approach towards homework and how we can ensure that the learning process does not stop at the end of the lesson.
This worksheet has been created for pupils up to Year 3, who are familiarising themselves with the phonetics of the English language and building links between pronunciation and spelling. The worksheet can be found here: English Y1-3 Resources

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?
