Where tutors’ skills and young people's needs harmonise
While 1:1 tutoring can provide a personalised learning experience tailored to individual needs, relational learning goes a step further by creating a nurturing, emotionally safe environment that fosters learning. This approach understands that young people, particularly those with adverse childhood experiences and SEND, need more than just academic support.
In a relational learning environment, tutors focus on building trust-based relationships, acknowledging young people's feelings, validating their experiences, and respecting their individuality. This supportive atmosphere encourages students to express themselves freely, enhancing their engagement and motivation to learn.
In essence, our trauma-informed practice acknowledges the complex impacts of trauma and emphasises the importance of safety, trustworthiness, collaboration, and empowerment in fostering resilience and enhancing educational outcomes.
What is Relational Learning in this context?
In a traditional 1:1 tutoring setting, a tutor might present a maths problem and directly guide their student through the steps to solve it. The focus is mainly on the procedure and finding a binary, correct answer.
In a relational learning context, our tutors begin by understanding the young person's feelings towards maths and any anxieties they have about the topic. They might share a story about how maths is used in real life, creating a connection between the young person's world and the problem at hand.
When a trusting relationship is built, our tutors encourage young people to explain their thinking process as they solve the problem, fostering a dialogue that deepens their understanding. The focus isn't just on the right answer, but the learning journey itself.
