BBT Academy

Tuition

The purpose of all tutoring at BBT Academy is to help students (tutees) become more independent learners. Tutors provide individual tutoring to students across a broad range of subjects. Tutors meet with students on a short or long-term basis to clarify and review concepts taught in class, explain processes, and help students solve specific problems. We cater for higher-performing students as well as struggling students.

Tutoring is a “student-centered” activity, and as such, the emphasis and content of the tutoring sessions is determined by the student’s needs. Tutoring is a supplement to teaching, not a replacement for class attendance and participation.

We recognise the benefits of private tuition. Studies indicate that tutoring can help boost a student’s grade by one or two levels at a minimum. We, therefore, take a holistic approach that aims to inspire the culture of learning, helping children to improve their skills in a nurturing environment.

Our tutors aim to identify the gaps in knowledge, while simultaneously facilitating learning through lots of practice, revision of theory, and interactive discussion of the subject matter.

Getting a tutor for extra lessons puts you in charge.

why us

Why our tutors?

A tutor is an excellent solution to large classroom sizes, different learning styles, static curricula, and learners needing more individual attention. A one-on-one tutor can assess where a learner needs reinforcement of certain material, and use personalized teaching methods to effectively fill in these gaps in knowledge.

You decide what sections of work you need help with. You choose your tutor – if you don’t connect with and understand the first tutor we send; we find you another. Your tutor will work with you at your own pace and use teaching methods that suit your unique learning style

Tutoring is a facilitative process that requires the active participation of both tutor and learner. Our tutors are carefully selected, character screened and trained so as to offer you the absolute best intuition for your child.
