Tutoring for a Child in Primary School

Primary tutoring offers personalised instruction tailored to individual learner needs, providing support beyond traditional classroom teaching.

Key Stage 1 (ages 4-7) and Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11) focuses on maths and English, addressing literacy and numeracy development aligned with the National Curriculum.

Sessions can include consolidating and reinforcing areas covered in school, practice questions, reading comprehension, problem-solving, and exam preparation for SATs and 11+ assessments.

Primary tutoring helps to build confidence and strong foundations as students progress through the academic years and in preparation for secondary school.

Tutoring for a Child in Secondary School

Secondary school education ranges from years 7 to 11 concluding with crucial GCSE exams. Tutoring can play a vital role throughout, particularly intensifying in Key Stage 4 as students prepare for these exams, which carry significant weight for higher education and future careers.

Tutors can offer focused support in core subjects like English, maths, and science, addressing learning gaps and empowering students to excel. Proactive planning for GCSEs allows tailored revision and exam practice helping students work towards their aspirational grades.

Tutoring for A-Levels

A-Level tuition requires subject specialists with a thorough grasp of the syllabus and exam format, particularly with the revised A-Levels introduced in 2016. With students usually taking 3 or 4 subjects, the transition from GCSE can be challenging, especially with essay-based subjects.

Tutors offer vital support by addressing specific concerns and providing a broader perspective within the A-Level curriculum. They help students stay on track, reinforce understanding, and offer targeted feedback and strategies, ultimately assisting them in achieving top grades, crucial for competitive courses like Oxbridge or medicine.

Tutoring for SEND and Home Schooling

Children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) require tailored support throughout their schooling. Tutors adapt teaching methods to accommodate various conditions, such as dyslexia and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), providing personalised strategies to build confidence and address individual learning needs.

Tutors also play a vital role in home-schooling, ensuring compliance with educational standards and supporting progress in challenging subjects. Regular contact with educational professionals helps maintain consistency and prepares children for future academic pursuits.
