As scientific research shows, the mind has greater capability and performance when anchored by positive emotional states1. Our tuition approach is supported by the work of psychologist Carl Rogers2. He developed the person-centred approach and the idea of self-actualisation to fulfil one’s potential.
Our nurturing approach has been particularly beneficial for students who lack confidence or motivation, don’t quite ‘click’ in traditional classrooms, or have special needs (SEN).
The Bright Heart Approach is an investment in the whole student. It aims to generate self-belief and positively impact how the student approaches learning. This is a longer-term approach with the purpose to be a bridge towards self-sufficiency.
Struggling students often have self-limiting thought patterns. Focusing purely on the intellectual side of the person when tutoring is unlikely to surpass these boundaries. By successfully increasing self-esteem and motivation, a pathway to improved academic performance is provided.
There is strong alignment between our approach and person-centred education, as described in the SEND Code of Practice 0 to 25 (2015). Our tutors are provided with guidance and training to implement the Bright Heart Approach.
