Tuition is a vocational pastime - we believe that one has to enjoy teaching in order to undertake it effectively. To that end, we decided to allow our tutors to contribute any materials they thought might be useful to students and/or their parents/guardians. The result is a series of short essays which we hope you find useful. It is important to remember that any private study technique is intensely personal and that it has to work for you. Please feel free to adopt any or all of the recommendations in these pages, and to contact us if you have any suggestions.
