Just a little rant. I used to love teaching A level and have loads and loads of good resources to offer the kids and so much experience. Thing is, I am finding that for Literature, it does not work in tuition. The kids are often late, lazy, arrogant, unreliable...just had one student who really needs the help on his retake quit. Oh dear! It has become an occupational hazard. The younger and most GCSe age students are so, so much nicer and more reliable. Having moaned all this, I have one final year A level girl who has been a joy to help, but she has been the exception. I no linger want one nice student from this age range to be an exception. No wonder results are dropping...the overall attitude is awful! The majority have been flakey, rude, slack and with awful attitudes...you know the sort that think you have subnormal DNA because you do not always use instagram. And they all do loads of different set texts and think you are the lowest of the low if you have not read a colossal book which they themselves aren’t bothered to within seven days. So annoying! Hey ho. At least I have my customer base sorted for next year now! Anyone else fully qualified but having to adjust their age range to have a better workload as a full time tutor?
