Been doing 1:1 tuition every afternoon in a school since March half term. I've spoken to my agency and feedback from the Head is that apparently I've been asking the teachers too many questions and 1:1 should be separate to the school. I'm given the pupils (Yr 6, about to sit SATs), given a level and that's it. No other information, no APP from teacher, no indication of areas that I should particularly concentrate on. They've been sitting mock SATs papers but I'm not informed of any particular weaknesses or targets. Given that I've been in school every afternoon since March half term, I've just tried to build rapport with the teachers so that we can get the best out of the 1:1 tuition. I've been letting the teachers know what I'm doing and asking if there's anything in particular they feel the pupils need to go over (this hasn't been every day either). This is so that, in my opinion, we can get the most out of the tuition. After all, it's only 10 hours so I don't want any time wasted trying to ascertain whether a pupil needs to go over a particular topic and it turns out the pupil is comfortable with the topic. From the guidelines and from other discussions, it seems normal to have some communication with the teacher yet now I feel as if I'm doing it all wrong ('upset' is probably too strong) but I am a little disappointed. I'm just trying to get the best out of the 10 sessions for the pupil. Is it wrong to expect some communication with the teacher? Am I thinking the wrong way about 1:1 tuition in a school environment?
