Autonomy, responsibility, self-direction. These are basic tenets of Henry Dingle’s educational philosophy. In this slightly longer episode, find out why it’s important for you too.
There is so much depth to this conversation – we advise listening to this in stages if you don’t have the full 45 minutes. There are key ‘chapters’ within this episode, such as:
[12:17] Henry’s philosophy behind bringing the best out of students
[14:55] Henry’s focus on why parents should be involved in the learning
[20:49] Henry’s view on mainstream education being more for parents than for students
[24:44] Henry’s realisation that confidence-building and relationship might be more important than academic success
[29:29] Henry’s cornerstones of effective tutoring and mentoring
… or find the chapters in the media player above …
From an exploration of the (faulty) education system as it currently is to a look at how he approaches the parent-tutor relationship, Henry takes us this way and that with his measured, eloquent style. It’s quite mesmeric and reflective of many years of educational thinking and theory.

“If we don’t give students autonomy and choice, then tutoring just becomes a lame extension of a lame system“
