Many students come for our Half Term Revision because they wish to be certain of an A or an A* in their courses, and find that one-to-one tuition with an Oxford Exclusif tutor is a sure way to get just that little bit further than they could have otherwise. Many other students come because they are finding their courses demanding or overwhelming, and find that it is only in this context that they can begin to grasp the necessary concepts properly and engage with the material more substantially; they want their tutors to explain the material as simply and clearly as possible. Whatever the case, the general consensus is that students come out of these courses much more confident than when they went in.
A Half Term Revision course can extend throughout the whole of Half Term or part of it, depending on the needs of the student. It often takes place on successive days, but it can be broken up if the student prefers. Often two hours per day per subject are recommended, while others prefer one hour per subject or more than two hours. In short, we are entirely willing and able to accommodate the student. We shall work with you to put together the best tutorial schedule.
Students are asked upon applying for Half Term Revision to provide detailed information about which segments of the material they most need help with and which aspects of study they would most like to work on. The tutor then uses this information to tailor the tutorials to the specific situation of the student. Where necessary, help is given not only in familiarising the student with the material but also in helping them in study technique and in making strategic preparation for writing essays and solving problems in examination contexts.
Preparation normally includes at least one test per week, often daily quizzes, and a mock examination near the end of the study period, which the tutor then goes through together with the student.
