Summerville Primary School in Salford returned to us this year for the EEF programme.  Maimoona Qureshi completed over 8 hours of maths tuition a week with the school's year 6's in the run up to their SATS exams.  Reflecting on her experience, Maimoona said that she was "nervous at the beginning about being able to create a positive rapport with the children whilst assisting them in raising their bar of achievement."  However, she was able to seek support from The Tutor Trust office staff and learned to 'be creative in (her) plans and delivery.'  "Even though I was teaching the same sheets 12 times over" she said "no lesson was the same because each child was different."  Year 6 teacher Lorraine Charles was positive about her time at the school, saying

"she developed a good relationship with the children that she worked with."

Maimoona was particularly positive about the rapport she had built with the children, saying that on her last day of tuition, the children came "with flowers and a bright signed card to say goodbye"...
