Tuition

Situated in the heart of Oxford, Greene’s provides courses of individual tuition to hundreds of students every year.  Greene’s  tutors are experts in their subjects and are trained to deliver tuition to reflect the Greene’s tutorial method of learning.

Students who do not join our fifth or sixth form as full-time students, and who are receiving the majority of their education elsewhere, may wish to take one of our short intensive courses, or take a series of courses over the year to meet their need for supplementary tuition.  Each course comprises a series of individual tutorials, and Greene’s offers a wide range of subjects across which we can provide you with expert tuition whatever your level.  Each student taking an individual course of tuition at Greene’s benefits from being taught by a carefully selected and trained tutor.  After every tutorial you will receive a written report that:

  • provides you with written feedback on the tutorial;
  • identifies a match, reach and safety target grade;
  • grades your tutorial performance for achievement and effort;
  • measures your achievement against your target grades;
  • grades your homework for achievement and effort;
  • records your attendance and punctuality;
  • calculates the degree to which you are learning independently (the IOI);
  • specifies the homework which is required for the following tutorial.

These reports are available for you, and for others who might be supporting you (such as your parents or anyone else you wish, who may have a particular and legitimate interest in your academic progress).  When you register with us, and are accepted onto a course, you will be sent your unique login details to Greene’s Online.  We try to enable you to receive reports within 48 hours of the tutorial taking place, so that you have feedback as fast as possible.  If you are having trouble logging in to view your reports please contact us at webmaster@greenes.org.uk.

At Greene’s your course of individual tuition is flexible and enables you closely to monitor your studies.  Greene’s Online allows for a degree of freedom to facilitate the independent arrangement of your own timetable, helping you to organise your tutorials directly with your tutor – and ideally you will feel able to do this.  However, if you feel that you would still like Greene’s to help you with your organisation, the course administrator will be delighted to do so, as long as we have accurate and precise information from you at least 10 working days in advance of the date you wish to begin.

So, with our individual courses, you will have the ability to:

  • create your own timetable working directly with your tutor;
  • discuss organisation and targets, creating a personal study plan with your tutor;
  • prepare well for each tutorial to maximize the value of the tutorial;
  • monitor your progress using feedback from the tutorial reports on Greene’s Online;
  • regularly self-test your knowledge to check you are hitting your target grade.

If you do not yet feel ready to manage your studies yourself – and this may be the case if you are taking tuition in two or more subjects – then please ask the course administrator for help.  If you require substantial extra help and advice, then we will suggest you speak to our College Principal who, after an initial assessment, may offer you a place in our sixth form, where you will be managed by one of our Directors of Studies.
