At Trefoil Tutors, we recognise the importance of maintaining an ongoing conversation between parents, tutors and students as a key factor in maintaining tutee progress and development. As a very successful Autumn Term comes to an end, we would like to invite parents to book in a meeting to speak to your child’s tutor and discuss their progress throughout the academic year so far. These meetings will build on the personalised feedback the tutors upload to the online portal every week.
To book your meeting, please log in to the online portal and choose a convenient date and time.
