MyTutor works with Harris Dulwich to provide tuition for Pupil Premium students in need of intervention. The school runs tutorials in Maths for 20 foundation and higher tier pupils after school every week, and they have observed marked changes in students’ confidence and attitude in class.

What made you decide to start using MyTutor?
One-to-one tuition has lead to increased confidence and engagement for Year 11 pupils at Harris Boys School
How have you found engagement with the programme?
Engagement with the programme has been extremely good. Week by week we’ve had very good engagement in terms of attendance, and once the boys are logged on, all their reservations go out the window because they want to do well, they want to learn, they want to make progress. A lot of the boys have surprised me with their maturity and focus.
What kind of impact have you seen in class?
“The students are now getting that individualised feedback and support, which has definitely made them more in tune with what they need to work on.”
Have you noticed much variation in students’ response to tuition?
Different students get different things out of MyTutor. Boys on foundation tier need to work on exam technique because their problem is they don’t understand the question, and their tutors help with this by teaching them how to break down the questions.
