Date and Time: Wednesday 28th October, 12noon - 1pm

This workshop will give tutors the confidence to prepare for the challenges that COVID-19 has placed on tutoring, some of which can be adapted to the NTP (such as working in small group ratios). We will be discussing how to differentiate your tutoring style for 1-2-1 and small groups, how this affects your planning and the tools you might use to conduct your lessons.

What attendees will gain from this workshop:

  • Strategies for tutoring in small groups vs one-to-one
  • Adapting to hosting these online vs face-to-face
  • Differentiating to the needs of your learners within these contexts
  • Share of best practice for each of scenario
  • Summary of what qualities makes a great tutor
