Do you have a personal message for students?
Remember to keep yourself safe and check that your tutor has a current CRB certificate. Please ask to see it. It is also worth checking to see which exam board you tutor specialises in and/or actively teaches. A tutor who is familiar with your exam board/syllabus will assist you in using the correct phrasing in your answers in order to gain full marks in any examination question.
