Students and the parents of those who are under 19, expect regular feedback on progress. Student achievement is optimal in an environment in which the individual is confident both in the expertise of the tutor and in the relationship with the tutor. Good examination results are normally only achieved by candidates who have prepared carefully over several months. Commitment from both pupil and tutor is essential if the pupil is to make the necessary progress towards achieving their required examination grade.

Students can help themselves whether or not they have a tutor by:

  • Obtaining a copy of the syllabus
  • Working in a quiet room, to a definite revision timetable
  • Avoiding working either late at night or too early in the morning
  • Punctuating longer work sessions by ten minute breaks, rarely working for periods of more than half an hour between those breaks. Four one hour sessions on separate days is much more helpful than a single four hours session (even if many breaks are taken within the four session)
  • It is helpful to start a session with a revision of any related work which has been learned.

The good tutor will undertake a comprehensive appraisal of the pupil's strengths and weaknesses and will be able to help the pupil on a course of understanding. Understanding is a key to high academic success. The tutor will also ensure that testing and assessing is done objectively, but must adhere to the client's request if such testing is not required.
