For the third year in a row, we continue to offer our tutors the Professional Development Programme. In the series of six seminars, tutors have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of recent ideas in pedagogy, share experience of working with students and explore new approaches to teaching their subject. In the first Professional Development Seminar this academic year, our tutors met to further their knowledge on planning well-structured and purposeful lessons that fit into a long-term teaching plan.
Trefoil Tutors got another addition to its Leadership Team this week, with Tim Backhaus joining us as Office Manager. With a background in law, Tim brings extensive experience in managing and working with youth organisations and other non-governmental organisations operating on a national and international level.
Based in our Elstree office, Tim will be the first point of contact for enquiries, manage internal and external communication and coordinate our advertising campaigns.
Tim can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our new academic year begins today!
The classrooms are ready, the teachers are prepared, the worksheets are printed and the welcome packs are assembled. We are extremely excited to welcome back our students from last year, and greet the ones joining us for the first time today.
Have a great year of learning, everyone!
Congratulations to our AS mathematicians and Further mathematicians – we are delighted to say that 13 out of 16 of our pupils achieved the top grade in their public examinations, 11 of whom scored over 90%. We’re incredibly proud of your results and would like to wish you all the best in the upcoming year!
Good luck to all of our students who are receiving their results today!
We know that many of our students have been waiting for it with great anticipation. We would like to wish you the best of luck when opening those envelopes, and hope all your hard work will bring its rewards today.
Do give us a call to share your results with us, it would be great to hear from you. If you would like any advice – we’re here to help!
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.
The Guardian have recently published a succinct yet informative list of revision tips – do share them with your son or daughter if they are preparing to sit exams in the coming months.
As Trefoil Tutors continues its series of Professional Development Seminars, our team of tutors met on Saturday for a seminar on Exam Preparation and Tips. Led by Milda Sabunaite, the seminar focussed on offering effective revision and exam preparation support to our tutees in preparation for the upcoming internal, GCSE and A-level exams.
Congratulations to all three of our Y11 pupils who sat their GCSE Mathematics early in January. We are delighted to announce that all three students were awarded an A* grade. Very well done and best of luck with the rest of your GCSEs in the summer!
