Welcome to tutr. My name is Mel Jackson. I’ve been a private tutor for the past 4 years, teaching science and maths to primary school children up to the A-level elite. I also run the tutoring agency tutr.london as well as the tutr blog. I founded this site to fulfil my personal mission: to empower you to take full responsibility of your own learning and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about learning and education. If you’d like to learn more about me, this site, and the tutr philosophy, I encourage you to continue reading.
Learning is about more than academic or economic success, it’s is the key to achieving a person’s full potential. Learning is also about more than just the end result. It is a process — a journey that can boost your confidence, ignite your imagination and inspire you.
Human beings are uniquely tuned in the world to learn. It’s what sets us apart. It helped us as a species to survive, adapt and thrive and it’s what continues to propel our civilisations.
But not everyone loves learning. Some people find it boring, others find it overwhelming, and some just don’t see it as useful. This can be for a number of reasons, from ineffective learning methods to poor study environments and even improper emotional mindsets.
This site is designed to help those people. To find the most effective, enjoyable and effortless ways to learn, to encourage practising lifestyle habits that foster stress-free, joyful learning, and ultimately to instil a love of learning.
