Exam Season Begins

For many of our students, the exam season is starting! Remember to spend time outside and enjoy the warming weather – and at the same time, use these important final days before the exams to talk to your tutor about any topics you feel you would like to revisit, so you are ready to enter the exam hall with increased confidence, solidified knowledge and an invigorated mind. We wish you the best of luck!

In the final Professional Development Seminar this academic year, our tutors met to further their knowledge on prominent theories in educational psychology. Discussing Piaget, Bloom and the way their theories can be applied in lessons, the tutors had an opportunity to enrich their lesson preparation and teaching skills.

This week, nine of our tutors attended a Professional Development Seminar titled “Communication skills, inspiring confidence and providing honest feedback”. Led by Milda Sabunaite, the seminar focussed on useful strategies in helping pupils engage with subject material, preparing engaging and interactive lessons, as well as ensuring that both pupils and parents receive regular and honest feedback on the lesson progress.

The monthly Seminars are a part of the Tutor Professional Development Programme at Trefoil.

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.

The monthly Seminars are a part of the Tutor Professional Development Programme at Trefoil.
