We teach students to learn and study with a Growth Mindset. This approach helps students to learn more successfully as they come to understand the importance of effort, are taught to embrace challenges, and experience their own resilience in the face of setbacks.
Mindset is an idea discovered by Stanford University psychologist Dr. Carol Dweck. A Growth Mindset holds that basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work, creating a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for accomplishment. A Fixed Mindset, on the other hand, teaches that basic qualities like intelligence or talent are established traits. This approach says that talent alone—without effort—created success, encouraging students to document their talent instead of working to grow.
Research shows that students with a Growth Mindset reach higher levels of achievement than students with Fixed Mindset beliefs and practices.
Our tutors have outstanding academic track records and a wide range of experience.
