These are the most common questions parents ask us about our GCSE and A Level (Years 1 (AS) and 2) revision courses.
Who are your tutors and what qualifies them to run courses?
Every tutor who runs a Justin Craig revision course is carefully chosen, having gone through our demanding recruitment process.
Each is an experienced GCSE and A level teacher. Many are examiners or leaders in their subject – and all have a detailed understanding of exam papers.
We select them not just for their subject knowledge but also for their energy, empathy, personality and – importantly – their ability to inspire.
What is the maximum size of your revision courses?
Our courses are never larger than nine students, and very rarely smaller than three. All our experience shows that these small groups create the right balance between discussion and independent learning and practice – with tutors able to devote significant time to students individually.
Are the courses specific to a particular exam board?
That depends on the subject. We have carried out detailed research with examiners and use the most appropriate revision methods for each subject. 94% of our courses are exam board or module specific.
For some subjects our revision courses are exam board specific. With others, we take a topic-based approach to revision. In either case, we focus on key areas of the subject and then explain how to apply that knowledge when answering exam questions.
Additionally, before each course we ask students to tell us which areas they would like us to cover. This information helps determine how the tutor approaches the course.
How will you make my child feel welcome?
Our tutors are friendly and approachable, and they work really hard to build the confidence of every student by creating a supportive, friendly atmosphere.
We find that simply putting students in a new, neutral environment encourages them to see exam revision from a fresh angle – and it’s easy for them to get to know the people they study with, because they already have lots of common ground.
Your courses aren’t cheap! How do I know my money will be well spent?
We like to let our track record speak for us. Nine out of ten students say we helped them revise more effectively, and many students come to use Justin Craig following a recommendation from other parents.
What’s more, 86% of Justin Craig students reach or improve on their target grades – and 94% rated their course as good, excellent or amazing.
What else does Justin Craig education do?
Nothing. We focus solely on providing high quality exam revision tuition for every student, just as we have done for 35 years.
