When choosing your pupils for one-to-one tuition, your main considerations should be:
- Who will benefit most from the extra support?
Often this will be your pupils who are struggling with their learning - they may be disadvantaged pupils or those who are eligible for Pupil Premium. You may also have pupils who need that extra push to reach the very top grades. Both can excel in their learning with MyTutor.
- Who will engage best with this initiative?
Pupils will benefit most from their MyTutor lessons by attending every week, being ready to learn and open to building a great relationship with their new tutor.
We advise steering away from pupils with significant behavioural issues, as we find they often struggle to engage with the programme.
The same considerations apply when choosing pupils for three-to-one MyTutor lessons, but there are a few extra things to consider when you’re deciding on groups.
- Make sure pupils grouped together are all working at a similar level
This allows the pupils to progress together at a comfortable pace.
- Minimise distractions
Our schools have found that grouping best friends together can disrupt focus on the lesson. It’s important to group together pupils who are comfortable with each other, but who can knuckle down together too!
Remember to keep these considerations in mind when choosing a new student if making a replacement. Read more about that here.
Ultimately, you know your pupils best, and we hope that all pupils will enjoy and benefit from sessions with our tutors!
