Tutors for our Resits Courses are selected from our most engaging and experienced tutors, and who have received the most exemplary feedback over the last academic year. In some instances, we have tutors returning to teach on their 5th EIB Course this year, which we are very proud of! All Revision Course students are asked to provide course feedback, which allows us to ensure we are constantly helping tutors improve their methods, and EIB to improve the general course structure.
Please see below for short biographies of, and testimonials for, some of EIB’s excellent tutors:
