Pastoral Care, Mentoring, Tutoring

  • Your New School

    most recent upload!! (1989). Your New School: Tutorial Resources for Year One. Harlow: Longman. An active guide to help pupils start secondary school. This book was written to help form tutors in the secondary school with the art of tutoring. 128 pages of activities for pupils in a tutor group to try out, that help them learn about the school, the teachers, each other and themselves. It sold more copies than any other of my books. But perhaps the most fulfilling feedback I ever got was from an 11-year old who had read it in her bedroom and said it helped a lot!
