Approach

Established in 1989, Bracknell Tutors delivers lasting improvements in pupils' academic performance through successful programs evolved over quarter of a century. Our approach involves rigorous training through intense repetition. At the Pre-G.C.S.E. level, traditional teaching, chanting and innovative methods are combined in a package that focuses on a few 'key' skills to produce competence and confidence in a few months. At more advanced levels we focus on fundamental concepts and skills appropriate to the subject, including skills in algebra, analysis, creative writing, I.T. skills etc..

Philosophy

We consider the three most important factors in determining a successful academic outcome to be 'belief', 'desire' and 'expectancy'. A positive belief in a positive outcome is the winning attitude for any achievement. This attitude can be cultivated by good feedback and study techniques. We find competence breeds confidence. Confidence and positive self-regard are vital for motivation. We can't impart a 'hunger' for achievement, but when students start to gain skills and learn they can overcome difficulty, a greater aspiration and enthusiasm naturally arises. Disruptive pupils, or very quiet students, generally begin to contribute positively to school classes. .....read more
