My DD started with a History tutor this year and she has been given the same essay to re write 3 times. She hasn't got a mark because tutor doesn't want her to focus on mark but on the process and how to structure the essay. All her teachers keep saying she only needs marginal changes to move her from B/A to a secure A or higher. Does this sound normal - to go over same essay over and over again ? I appreciate the point about thinking about the process rather than the mark but at school, it is the mark that determines their A Level predictions and course progress and sadly, that is what the children focus on. Tutor is an ex teacher so just wondering if that is where he is coming from - as in teacher view: should tutor have different approach to a teacher ? Just want to make sure we are on the correct path.
