Wow, has it really been that long since I last posted a blog update?
This year things have been ticking over nicely with around 12-15 regular tutees at any one time, plus a few on the waiting list for cancellations and holiday slots. I have three who are doing the second year of the old A-level and the rest are in Years 10 and 11 or doing GCSE resits, though enquiries from Year 12 students doing the new A-level have started to trickle in now. Evening slots are full up but I can still fit in a couple more daytime students.
I've just updated my resource lists for students: They can be downloaded here for GCSE and here for the new A-level. Lots of useful stuff there to help with your exam preparation. A good web page that I've just discovered for practising a wide range of GCSE skills is Maths4Everyone's Games page. Bookmark it on your phone and do a quiz whenever you have a few minutes to kill. Try to beat your previous high score on each quiz!
On the social side, I'm still enjoying the musical theatre stuff: in November I played Liza the maid in Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure, and this April I'm in The Mikado. This is another show that I did at school - 32 years ago now! - and I can still remember most of the chorus content but there's a lot more to learn too, as I have a much bigger part this time: I'm playing Pitti-Sing, one of the Three Little Maids. STAMPS' Spring show is a proper social event, with the audience seated around tables and served up with a fish & chip supper by the cast during the interval. If you're in the Solihull area 18th - 21st April then please consider coming along!
