Most parents don’t know that as part of our service, our tutors are required to debrief with the parents of their students not only after every session, but at the end of each term as well! We know that you are busy or may not be at home, and often we hear that parents aren’t sure if they can chat to their tutor after a session either. A phone call, text or email works just as well, as it is critical that your tutor can keep you updated on your child’s progress. Often your tutor will see things that may be unexpected, and will require your help to keep things on track, so ensuring you are all on the same page means that you are working together to achieve your goal! We also know that you know your child better than anyone else, so if you have any tips for our tutors don’t hesitate to let them know.Read More
