With the GCSE exams exactly a week over, I'm curious to know how did your students do? I tutor in English Lit/& English Lang and I had 5 out of 7 do well. They ranged from the higher pass rate from two students of 8 & 7 in English Lit/& English Lang & a standard rate of 4 in English Lit/Lang. I did have two who passed the English Lit, but not the Eng Lang, with one of them just missing out on a grade 4 and got a grade 3 and the other one got a grade 2.The grade 3 student is fairly ok with her grade & has found a couple of places that are able to take her as she only just missed out on a grade 4. The grade 2 student is absolutely distraught. His parents (& myself) are proud of him that he's done so well and we've told him so. He's going to tutor with me for a resit in November, but I was wondering how does one approach a resit with regards to trying to boost his confidence again? How do cover what he needs, rather than raking over 'old ground' so to speak? At the moment he's in that 'I don't care' attitude, but I'm aware September is coming and I'll have to get him in the zone to learn. Also, has anyone done resit tutoring with a student before and they still haven't passed the resit? I'm a bit worried that I will let him down if he doesn't pass the second time around.
