Skills and expertise
One-to-one lessons are an opportunity for an individual to discover personal learning strengths. Margaret seeks to tailor lessons to serve the tastes and strengths of each student, and to develop weaker areas. Listening is an important skill that is often overlooked in other disciplines.
To this end, lessons are encouraging at the same time as rigorous and challenging, robust, lively, varied and sometimes playful. Each lesson has an attainable local goal, while keeping in view an exciting global perspective. Students benefit from a combination of review and adventure, where there are difficult places whose outcomes are propelled by the enthusiasm of the teacher and the relationship between teacher and pupil.
