“I used to be scared of making mistakes in maths but since I’ve
been having one-to-one tuition I feel much more confident and
really look forward to my maths lessons”
Year 8 pupil, Cornish Secondary School
Whether you are a headteacher, a tuition lead or a tutor
we hope that you will find this resource informative and
One-to-One is aimed at pupils who have fallen behind national
expectations and need personalised tuition to overcome the blocks
and barriers that are stopping them from making expected progress
in English or mathematics. It is not intended as a replacement for
excellent high quality Wave 1 learning and teaching. Rather, it
aims to support children who have failed to secure particular
skills even after high quality whole class teaching has taken
place. Pupils value tuition because they develop a special
relationship with the tutor who knows them well and is consequently
well placed to build learning around their interests and skills.
Parents value one-to-one tuition because they know it can make a
real difference in terms of helping their child to get back on
track and grow in confidence as a learner. For further information
about one-to-one tuition, please contact Andy Brumby (secondary
lead) or Teresa Christopher (primary lead) via firstname.lastname@example.org.

New interactive self-evaluation tool for
- What does good tuition actually look like?
- Does being a good teacher automatically make me a good
- What are my strengths and weaknesses as a tutor?
- What practical strategies could I develop to enhance my
- What next steps do I need to take in order to become an even
more effective tutor?
Our new interactive self evaluation tool is designed to help
tutors develop excellent practice in the pedagogy of personalised
learning. It aims to help tutors provide highly personalised
tuition for each of their tutees. Based around the PIER model
(Progression, Interaction, Engagement, Reflection) developed by
Andy and Tre, it shows how tutors can improve their pedagogy in
four key areas that we have identified as being crucial to success
in achieving totally personalised tuition. We hope that tutors and
tuition leads will find this resource helpful for reflecting on the
questions listed above.
