At Tutortoo we want to see every child embrace education, adopt a growth mindset and be rewarded with grades which accurately reflect their abilities. We work with schools across the country to provide workshops on school premises which inspire teachers and students alike. By sharing the latest techniques for information retention and recall, time management and mindset, our workshops equip pupils and teachers with the skills to succeed.
Activity workshops for primary pupils
Inspiring sessions ready to be delivered to pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2.
Our workshops bring topics to life through discussions, crafts and fun activities. Tutortoo can take the pressure off schools and teachers by providing additional resources and pre-prepared content, perfect for marking national events such as Children’s Art Week, British Science Week and Engineers’ Week.
Growth Mindset seminars for Teachers
According to research by Dr Carol Dweck, a prominent psychologist at Stanford University, our mindset determines our behaviour, performance and capacity to achieve to the best of our ability.
It has been suggested that pupils with a growth mindset, whereby they believe their ability can change and grow, will outperform students with a fixed mindset who believe their ability is set in stone.
Our growth mindset seminars are for teachers who want to instil a growth mindset in the classroom:
The science behind young brains.
How the brains of young people can change and grow in a way that increases motivation to learn, develops positive beliefs and increases confidence in their ability to achieve.
Why it can be impossible to predict what pupils with a growth mindset could be capable of achieving in the future.
Strategies for encouraging a growth mindset amongst pupils.
How to bring to life a growth mindset in the classroom and across the school.
Revision Workshops for Secondary School Pupils
Pupils struggle to revise for exams often because of a lack of skill, rather than a lack of will.
Our revision workshops are aimed at secondary school students, from year 9 through to year thirteen.
Setting up students for success:
Tips on planning and managing time.
Breaking revision down into a realistic structure of things to do each week.
Skills for optimising revision sessions.
How to revise in the best way for each individual student.
How to minimise exam stress.
Tips to maintain wellbeing under pressure.
Revision Seminars for Secondary School Teachers
Students are frequently told by teachers, tutors and their parents to revise, but sometimes they simply don’t know how to revise effectively.
Our revision seminars are aimed at secondary school and sixth form teachers who want to raise overall attainment levels by embedding revision skills into their individual schemes of work.
Giving teachers a toolkit of methods:
The differences between teenage and adult brains.
How the teenage brain retains and recalls knowledge and information.
Teaching techniques to improve recall and retention.
Embedding effective revision skills into teaching practices.
The most effective revision strategies for different students, based on how they learn best.
