The role  

We need qualified primary teachers to tutor across all year groups, being accountable for up to 30 children in each year group.  The school is based in Hounslow, and caters for a high population of children with English as an Additional language.

In this case, Tutors will need to arrive at 08:30am and be ready to begin tutoring from 9am -3pm, whilst taking a 1 hour lunch break. The school will provide the Tutor with information about the students participating in each group, their current attainment levels, what needs to be covered during the sessions and the expected outcomes for each tuition block.   

As part of this role, Tutors will be required to receive core material from the school, and then create their own resources to ensure learning is both individualised and creative .They must also provide weekly student feedback to the school, covering areas such as attendance, engagement and progress. On completion of the tuition block, the tutor, pupil(s) and school will also complete an evaluation to help assess the impact of the tuition.
