Tutoring for Life Online – New course

We live in times where demand for tutoring is at an all-time high. We have a responsibility to make the delivery of extra support for struggling children the highest quality it can be.

Lyn would like to share her tips for successful tutoring sessions both online and face to face. All activities are aligned with the Science of Reading and the Science of Learning.

In this workshop we will cover:

  • Memory and processing – what you can and can’t change
  • How to build a tailor-made bridge to the curriculum for your student
  • Carer coaching: Getting the most out of this valuable resource
  • The importance of progress monitoring and feedback
  • How words are the key to success
  • A run through some recommended resources

Course outcomes:

  • Improved confidence in your skill as a tutor
  • Faster progress for your students
  • Access to resources that work
  • A certificate of completion that makes you stand out in the crowd
