The Blog Returns
Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

You know how it is: you take your eye off the blog for just a few minutes, and then... five years pass!

I'm very excited to be relaunching the blog in its new format as The Tutor Lounge. It's my intention to create a spot where teachers, tutors and parents can pop off their shoes, grab a biscuit, and wiggle those tired feet into a pair of slippers, all whilst getting some ideas and inspiration for their students.

I will be mostly trying to publish resources rather than commentary in an effort to keep the blog useful.

Amongst other bits and pieces, you can expect:

Weekly CrossNumber Puzzles

These little bitesise maths snacks will appear every Tuesday, both here and on our Instagram and Twitter accounts. It's here in the blog I'll be adding any explanatory notes and sharing the solutions, though.

Weekly English Resources

I'll be choosing a Book of the Week, every Thursday, and my intention with these is to provide ideas and activities alongside every book, not just a title and a vague plug. Expect worksheets, lesson plans and instructions for engaging a student rather than my 5 minute 'book club' review.


I will announce any Torchlight related news here first, if you're minded to keep up to date with what we offer in terms of tuition, courses, mocks and downloadables.

Eventually, I intend to open up an option for discussion and comment but I think I better prioritise getting my head down and producing this content first! If you would like to get in touch, feel free to email me at

Great, I can't wait to get started - see you soon! Toby
