I just wanted to wish all my students sitting paper 1 of GCSE maths, tomorrow, all the best. You've worked incredibly hard and deserve the grades you are aiming for. Who knows, some of you may even do better than you expect.
For serving teachers, professional development is an important part of maintaining standards of teaching and learning and keeping up to date with recent educational developments.
As a tutor I feel that I need to maintain and upgrade my skills as far as possible. Not all professional development is necessarily subject based. During the current academic year I have participated in professional development specifically designed to support teaching of the new 9-1 maths GCSE and also attended the Norfolk County Council Safeguarding Children course. I have also taken part in a webinar addressing 'Maths Learning Difficulties & Dyscalculia' lead by Professor Steve Chinn PhD FRSA. His website can be found at www.stevechinn.co.uk
It has been a while since I last posted. I have been immensely busy with lots of demand for tuition. All of my tutor sessions are fully booked until after the GCSE exams and, while I have tried to cater for as many students as possible, I have, unfortunately, had to turn away some students wanting 'last minute' tuition.
My Y6 students have finished their SATs and are now looking forward to the rest of the summer term, the holidays and moving schools in September. 75% of them are continuing with tuition until the end of term at least.
My Y11 students have already embarked on their exam season and will be taking their maths papers on 25th May, 8th & 13th June. I hope they all achieve the grades they are aiming for and know that they are all working incredibly hard.
Students in all other year groups continue to work hard.
I wish all students taking GCSEs all the very best for their exams. Keep calm, do your best and you will be rewarded!
