Tutor house team attended a debate by the RSA and Teach First last week exploring what makes a good teacher. Sir Michael Wilshaw spoke first, regaling tales of two particular teachers who impressed him when he was Head Teacher at Mossbourne Academy.
In essence he concluded that a good teacher at A-Level, GCSE or any other level is someone who is themselves in the classroom and can convey their passion to their students. If you’re faking it or trying to be someone you’re not in front of a class of teenagers, they’ll see straight through it!
The following two motivating speeches were made by a Headmaster of a new academy and a Teach First ambassador. I couldn’t help but be rather moved by their passionate stories of teachers who have tackled adversity in the classroom and achieved the seemingly impossible with students. I felt uplifted and positive that the education system really can be revolutionised, one teacher at a time.
After a sterling round of applause, Matthew Taylor, the Chief Executive of the RSA takes to the lectern. We must remember, he says, as in every profession with a workforce of over half a million, there will be good teachers and there will be bad teachers. All we can hope to do is move the curve on the graph so more teachers are good than bad.
My initial reaction to this ‘un-sugared’ reality pill was annoyance! How dare he bring me back down to earth with such a bump after I’d just been so inspired by the speakers before! But then reality kicks in after a split second and of course, he is entirely right. In every sector there are good and bad professionals.
There are good, bad and average lawyers, builders, dentists and bank managers. The difference is we can choose our lawyer, builder, dentist or bank manager.
So the moral of the story?
You CAN’T choose your teacher but you CAN choose your tutor!
So in a shameless plug, contact tutor house for quality, experienced and fun A-Level, GCSE and Common Entrance tuition!

I wanted to share with you all a little about my experience tutoring over the last five years. I tutor GCSE, A-Level and sometime degree level psychology. I enjoy the whole syllabus, but I do prefer, if i’m honest, to tutor specific topics. I love tutoring relationships, abnormal behavior and developmental psychology. Psychology A Level is so diverse, it’s great to tutor. Students love it as well because it’s interactive, social and discussion based, which is great for tutors and pupils alike. Relationships, as an option in unit 3 Psychology (AQA) is very interesting, it includes adults and child relations but also romantic relationships, including formation, maintenance and dissolution of relationship. Students really feel that they can discuss with me this psychology topic and they always get a great insight into how the questions are worded and how they should answer them, just because their knowledge is vast and they truly understand the topic.
Often pupils report back to me, informing me that they’ve been having ‘chats’ with other students and they love discussing the topic with each other.
Psychology really is a fantastic, interesting and diverse subject at A-Level and/or GCSE. I love tutoring it, you should love learning it.

Tutors working abroad…
‘Tutors on holiday’
New service brings the classroom to the sun-bed
London-based private tutoring agency, Tutor House (www.tutorhouse.co.uk) is offering a new service to provide private tutors to accompany families on holiday in the UK or overseas and tutor children aged 11 – 18 in any GCSE and A Level subject, as well as provide Common Entrance preparation.
Available on a flexible basis, bookable by the day, Tutor House tutors offer up to 5 hours of tuition each day, combined with childcare, and tutors will travel with the family, or can fly in for a specific period, to provide the extra academic input.
The service works equally well for families taking a villa holiday, a ski holiday or staying in a hotel, and it gives families the potential to travel any time of the year, reducing the stress of taking children out of school during term time.
Director of Tutor House and professional tutor, Alex Dyer said; ‘By offering this new service, families can now go on holiday out of season, or during term time, without having to worry that their children will fall behind at school.’
Alex goes on to say; ‘Families can also optimise key revision periods, such as Easter and Christmas holidays, by providing all the revision and educational support needed to achieve exam success without missing out on family holidays.’
Tutor House employs the services of over 500 specialist tutors, offering a variety of disciplines, from PE to Physics, tennis to IT, with specific tuition offered to international and UK students for Common Entrance and senior school examinations, GCSE, iGCSE and A levels.
