1: Make sure you know all their names very quickly. Find out something unique about each tutee.

2: Provide a safe environment where they they can come talk to you about anything, especially Year 7 or Year 11 – these are the tough years.

3: Make sure you read all the notices out as other teachers get cross if you don’t.
