With a small tutor to student ratio, instruction can be individually provided in group classes. Sessions are student-centred while being flexible, collaborative, engaging and reflective.
These sessions are great for students who struggle with anxiety or a lack of confidence to participant in a large classroom setting. It offers them opportunities to ask questions and have them responded to quickly. Students are guided to see that it is possible to change their approach after making a mistake, and that making mistakes is part of their learning journey.
Being in a small group also provides chances to develop their communication and social skills with their peers. It can improve their ability to share their learning with others, actively listen when someone else is speaking, collaborate on similar topics and develop patience. What's more, learning together encourages students to form a supportive bond that can continue long after a tutoring session.
Students are placed in groups linked to their grade level at school with their academic skill level also taken into account.
