There are many good reasons parents invest in private tuition for their children. Here are some reasons that our families’ mention to us time and time again: One-to-one attention Because private tuition is one-to-one, children are able to focus better and are taught in a way that specifically meets their own unique needs. At school, you don’t have a choice about your teachers, but we match the child and the tutor carefully. This means pupils have a mentor who teaches in the most effective manner for their learning styles. Extra review Often in school there is only a limited time to review a child’s work and understanding. That may not always be enough. Having a private tutor gives students an extra chance to review the areas in which they may be struggling. Homework help With a tutor, pupils enjoy having a guide who can make the topics that they’re covering for homework less stressful, less of a chore and more of an effective learning experience. Exam success For students working towards exams, private tuition helps them to master concepts and develop better study skills in preparation for their assessments. Tutors give them the opportunity to practice more questions and receive more feedback, all leading to better performance on the day. If you have entry for particular school in mind, please let us know and we will try to find you a tutor who knows the exam and has a track record of getting children in. The stress of selective entrance exams on the family as a whole and the pressure on the child in particular, will reduce once a family feels they are in the capable hands of an experienced tutor with a plan. Confidence Because tutors develop a more personal relationship with their students, they are able to see and cultivate the potential within them. This is all too easy for teachers in school to miss, especially if a child is well-behaved, of average intelligence or has special educational needs. Sometimes students may not be willing to ask questions in a large class, but working with a private tutor gives them more freedom to speak out. Modern life Parents with busy schedules don’t always have time to help their children after school with homework. Having a private tutor takes the pressure off and means precious family time can be for fun and relaxation. Stronger drive to succeed Because private tuition means the instructor is really focused on the success of the student, students are far more likely to be motivated to perform to the very best of their ability.
