Become a tutor at Greene’s


Greene’s College Oxford has over 55 years of experience in using the tutorial method. If they are not already familiar with it, Greene’s tutors are trained in its practice, and Greene’s students are constantly encouraged to develop the skill of using it.

Using the tutorial method, tutors ask penetrating questions in order to draw out knowledge from students, and enable the students themselves to recognise connections and become fully aware of the potentially large pool of knowledge they have acquired.
