'The writer William Morris said that you should 'have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful', and I think the same is true of education - that its purpose is to fill our heads with things we find useful, or beautiful, or hopefully both.' For Joe Norman, education is what you still remember when you have forgotten everything else. What ideas have stayed with you from the classroom? How do you write an essay? How do you read a poem? Whether you are still a student or long finished with formal education, The Super Tutor offers a first-class schooling for anyone who wants to have the sort of education that will stay with you a lifetime. Drawing on fifteen years of tutoring, Joe shares his brilliantly imaginative teaching tips, including: how to write an essay, how to read a poem and, most importantly, how to think. Stripping away grades, praise, university places or examiners, this book celebrates the love of learning things for its own sake.
