When I first started teaching I didn’t put much emphasis on handwriting. As long as I was able to read the work then I was happy, after all, how many people really hand write these days? During my five years between graduating and retraining as a teacher I hardly picked up a pen, other than to write on an occasional post it. The...
Hi, I’m Philippa and I tutor to the test. There is a beautiful dream that us English teachers have about how students can learn to love and appreciate our subject. About how students will read books because they love stories and about how they will one day understand that capital letters are more than just a font style choice. I...
PREPARING YOUR CHILD FOR ENGLISH AT ELEVEN PLUS or COMMON ENTRANCE by Camilla Otaki As a parent, how do you react to the following scenario? A child sits in a classroom all day, Monday to Friday. On returning home, she does her homework. On Saturday, she goes to a tuition centre. One evening a week, she has private...
PRIVATE TUITION FOR THE ELEVEN PLUS – the truth Why do people get so hot under the collar about private tuition? A standard response is that private tuition gives an unfair advantage to those who can afford it. I see the point but I think it is one-sided. Can one sensibly argue against offering a child a time once a week...
Review of FACE TO FACE talk at Tate Editor's PickIt's not often an interviewer is interviewed. You have to be a pretty big-time interviewer to be interviewed; for people to want to know who you are and not just who the people you interview are. Richard Cork is pretty big-time when it comes to the 'art world'.The first artist he met was Picasso in the 1960s with his best friend Tim...
Creative writing can sometimes be so difficult for students. It requires skills and techniques that students need to use like the use of smiles, metaphors, onomatopoeia, personification, alliteration, assonance and use of dialogue. A story or idea needs to be planned, introduced, developed and concluded. I find that students can...
In Defense of the Law of Tort Editor's PickStudents instinctively resist the appeal of tort. I was not alone in pre-emptively concluding that the law of Tort seemed to represent those difficult and inaccessible areas of the law. The very nomenclature seems dry - the word 'tort' stemming ultimately from the Medieval Latin word 'tortum', meaning injustice, was adapted to 'tort'...
When I was studying for my GCSE French, a book that was invaluable to me was French Vocabulary for GCSE by Malvern Language Guides. This handy A5 book consists of lists of vocabulary arranged according to the main topic areas of the GCSE French syllabuses for all the exam boards as well as a chapter of simply ‘essential vocabulary’....
Book Review: Understanding the European Union - A Concise Introduction (John McCormick) This book is excellent for Edexcel A2 Unit 4A - Key Themes in Political Analysis - European Union There is no up-to-date McNaughton book for this topic and it can seem confusing for even the best Politics students. You only have to see the turnout...
Working With Gifted Children Editor's PickIt all began when I was working one-to-one with a couple of children who could be described as gifted. At that time, I couldn’t understand why these two highly numerate and intelligent children were experiencing such difficulties and such intense frustration with maths. These two taught me a lot and were the beginnings of a journey...
Behind the times? Editor's PickI have taught for a few years now and have taught a wide cross-section of children. As a keen mathematician I always find it interesting how the children of Asian origin excel...
Discipline - An Inside Job Editor's PickDiscipline—having once been a teen myself (way back in the far reaches of my mind, something tells me it DID happen, yes, and I survived it), I find that today the word...

There are many ways to make maths relevant and fun. In 2006 I decided to learn how to skydive solo. Since then I have completed over 800 skydives and now coach others. Then I...
