You are as likely to find Tom Barwood tutoring an individual pupil as teaching a class or delivering a whole school workshop. His passion is to see everyone fulfil their true potential and that is something he is happy to do at any level.
All of this means that a day spent in his company is well worth while as he can take you all the way from the latest advances in education thinking to what to do with a difficult class or individual pupil with ease.
The emphasis on all of his workshops is how to make learning more productive and therefore more enjoyable for all concerned.
This will be a busy, informative and lively day so come armed with some good ideas to share, an open mind and a willingness to participate.
