What if I miss a lesson?

Lesson resources are uploaded on the Google Classroom after the lesson takes place.

Lesson Expectations?

There is no expectation to have your camera on in lessons however, we do encourage active participation in our lessons so we would recommend that students do try to put their cameras on where possible. We also encourage microphone use and the hands-up function in all of our lessons. We also use the chat for those that would rather respond this way. We do not allow students to communicate with other students on the chat, unless asked to do so by the teacher. Students can be removed from lessons if they misuse the chat.

 

What are your qualifications?

  • A Post Graduate Certification in their secondary subject specialism

  • 10 years or more experience of teaching in UK schools and online

  • Edexcel Examiners

 

Do you have an up-to-date DBS certificate?

Yes, we are required by law to have an up-to-date DBS certificate if working with young people.

 

Do you assess work?

Yes. Every course comes with weekly home study tasks, which are given detailed weekly feedback. We also provide opportunities to complete mock exams within GCSE courses.

 

Do you offer 1:1 lessons?

We offer 1:1 lessons in Maths and English. Do refer to our ‘Teachers’ and ‘Prices’ pages for more information. If you have a 1:1 query, we would ask you to email leanne@ohsoed.co.uk in the first instance. 

 

Can we have a trial lesson?

Yes. All group lessons can be trialled in a free taster. There is a link to book these on our homepage.

 

Cancellations

Unfortunately we cannot provide refunds for lessons missed. This is due to the planning commitments of our teachers. In the event of a missed lesson, students can access resources from the lesson on the Google Classroom. If you would like to withdraw from the course, we would ask you to email us. When a child’s place is secured on one of our courses, particularly when a course is full, we cannot then offer this place to another child. We would ask you to consider this before booking.

Do you set homework?

We set weekly ‘Home study Tasks’. These are tasks set by the teacher, providing an opportunity to practise skills learned in the lesson. These are uploaded on the google classroom, where teachers mark the work. Detailed feedback is given with targets for improvement. At GCSE these will be required tasks, however, it is the responsibility of the parent and student to ensure that work is completed. OH-SO ED teachers will not chase home study tasks if not submitted.

 

Do you book exams?

Unfortunately we cannot book exams. We are a partner with Tutors and Exams, who will guide you through this process. They have centres all over the UK and will discuss any access requirements with you. OH-SO ED parents will receive a discount upon booking with them.
