Making best in class teaching and learning methods accessible to all
Enhancing critical thinking skills for learners to thrive in the 21st century
At CTT, we work with students, educators and professionals to use the Oxford Tutorial Method to promote deep learning, critical thinking and creative problem solving in global contexts.
What are tutorials?
The world-renowned Tutorial Method is a personalised, holistic approach to teaching and learning that cultivates resilience, independence and confidence in students.
Pioneered at the University of Oxford, it uses a higher-order questioning approach, combining independent study of curriculum content and small group discussions between students and the teacher to catalyse critical thinking and analytical skills among students.
The individualised teaching at the heart of the Tutorial Method can empower individuals to view themselves as facilitators of knowledge.
Building Critical Thought
The Tutorial Method’s emphasis
on how we think rather than what we think focuses on an individual’s ability to learn from how they listen to others, ask questions and make judgements.
Small Group Discussion-Based Classes
Combining independent learning with small group based discussions gives students the power to define the focus of their own learning. The tutorial method invokes student’s natural curiosity and enables their learning to be shaped by this.
What we do
The Tutorial Method is a powerful tool for empowering students and preparing them for success in their academic and professional lives.
At CTT, we deliver a range of online and in-person courses that use tutorial teaching to prepare students for university success, academic excellence and their future professional careers.
Our courses focus on building critical thinking skills, exposure to university-level academics and the skills to succeed at university. All our courses are taught by Oxford University academics, giving students an academically rigorous, transformative learning journey.
Every student receives individual attention from our experienced tutors, challenging students and helping them hone in on their individual academic interests and passions.
The tutorial method has helped us to give learners a voice in their own education. Relevant, fascinating topics have elicited vibrant discussions where learners could take the lead based on their own research. The tutorial method is fast becoming an invaluable value-add to our learners.
