All EasyA tutors follow 3 basic principles
Explain, don't tell
All EasyA super tutors first explain the methodology before giving the student the answer. This allows students to be guided to the answer, meaning they learn more independently and recall newly learnt information more effectively.
EasyA super tutors encourage students to show what they've done to try and solve the problem before helping them get to the answer. This means that students have attempted the problem and thought about possible ways to solve the question before a tutor helps them.
In order to make sure that students understand the material being taught to them, our super tutors are encouraged to ask question continuously throughout each lesson, even when explaining answers. This ensures that our students are always engaging with our tutors and thinking proactively.
EasyA was founded on the belief that students learn better when they are given the help they need, when they need it.
What started out as a simple hypothesis by two former tutors (now our co-founders), based on their own teaching experience, has proven to be true.
We took two groups of students from leading schools across the U.K. and looked at their academic performance over the course of a year. One group was given EasyA, and the other was left to learn on their own (free to use tutors, extra classes or any other assistance they wanted). We tracked their performance in a set of monthly tests that we asked them to complete throughout the academic year. The first test taken at the beginning of the experiment resulted in both groups scoring 75% and 74%. However, half way through the year, the students who had EasyA were scoring 82% on average vs 78% and by the end of the year, students on EasyA had an average score of 95% compared to 82% by the end of the year.More importantly, these results are being felt by the hundreds of students who are getting better 11+ and GCSE grades as the result of EasyA.
