Abingdon Common Entrance Exams Tutor

Since I was at university, I have taught individual students a wide range of subjects. I have taught many neurodiverse and homeschooled students and enjoy helping those who have previously not enjoyed the best experience of education. I have taught in colleges and senior schools, but most of my career has been in prep schools, where I have taught a very wide range of academic subjects, as well as being a Head of Classics and taken a full role in all aspects of pastoral life. My individual students have received tuition in the evenings, at weekends and in the holidays. I put the needs of the student at the centre of my work and try to make the whole experience positive and interesting. I have taught some families for nearly twenty years, sometimes over more than one generation. I am happy to travel to students' homes or to teach online.

Leon C
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Online Common Entrance Exams Tutor

As a tutor, I enjoy helping young people (and parents!) break down barriers in their learning and build confidence. I work with young people from 6 years old to 20 years old. I`ve taught Maths and English from Year 3 all the way up to GCSE so I understand the likely journey a young person will need to take in these subjects. However, not all routes to obtaining the GCSE, building a child`s confidence and/or addressing gaps in learning are the same. Every child`s journey is unique and I enjoy trying to find the strengths and address the weaknesses. I really emphasise to parents of children that I tutor that this is not `more school`. I keep sessions well-paced and interactive and we work together to find a way forward. Over the past few years, I have been coaching young people aged 15-21 who need help with future planning for employment, further or higher education. I have also been teaching sessions on mental health and wellbeing.

Hayley is a fantastic communicator, and her replies are always prompt. She explains ideas really well and engages consistently in every session. I would highly recommend her, particularly if you have any English queries. Simran C

I recently had the pleasure of working with Miss Hayley P on Sherpa and I am extremely satisfied with my experience so far. She is a highly skilled and dedicated tutor who has helped me improve my techniques in analyzing poems for my English GCSE this summer. Her deep understanding of poetry analysis and effective teaching methods made complex concepts easy to grasp. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking tutoring for English Literature. Lina N

Susan is a great teacher. She helped my daughter prepare for her GCSE exams both for language and literature. She was really dedicated and spared nothing to give the highest level of care. I strongly recommend her. Dr Elmeshad

Colin has been such a wonderful tutor over the past several months. He has really helped our son improve upon his Economics skills for his forthcoming A-Level examinations. Colin has been accommodating and flexible with timings. He genuinely wants our son to do well in Economics. We would not hesitate to recommend Colin 100% and thank him for all of his invaluable input and knowledge in the hours spent tutoring our son. Miss Bowen

I am pleased to reference Mr Michael Hughes, who taught here at City of London School for three academic years. He taught English Literature and Language to pupils aged from 11 to 18, including preparing some of the most able boys for Oxbridge entry. Michael was a popular and hard-working teacher during his time with us and continues to be remembered with fondness and gratitude for his service. Mr Charles Fillingham, Deputy Headmaster, City Of London School
Common Entrance Exams Tuition in Abingdon

Michael Hughes was an excellent tutor for my daughter's English Language and English Literature IGCSEs. He really understood how best to teach her. English Language and Literature do not come naturally to her as she has a more mathematical and scientific brain. He taught her some very good exam techniques in all aspects of the papers. He was calm, friendly and positive, boosting my daughter's confidence immensely. He was also very reliable. I would highly recommend him. Subject: English Language and English Literature Outcome: We do not have her IGCSE results yet, but her predicted grades increased by two grades over the year that Michael tutored her. Mrs B.

Online Common Entrance Exams Tutor

Throughout my career to date I have endeavoured to bring great enthusiasm to all of my teaching and tutoring. As a result the vast majority of the students that I have tutored have gained high grades at GCSE and A-level, and most have continued to be successful in their university studies. While studying for my PhD I taught classes for two years to first and second year undergraduates at St. Andrews. I have also taught language classes to adult learners at Reading University Summer School, involving both beginners and intermediate students, and I am used to catering to the needs of students at various stages of their learning. My style is relaxed and I always aim to make learning enjoyable while promoting academic progress. I also encourage active participation and believe in allowing all students to comment constructively on their own progress and the different activities undertaken in lessons and tutorials. I can tutor students in English, French, History, Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Studies.

There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our Common Entrance Exams teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates.

We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a Common Entrance Exams tutor coming to your home in Abingdon to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the Common Entrance Exams tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the Common Entrance Exams tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the Common Entrance Exams tutor is required to travel to your home, in Abingdon. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your Common Entrance Exams tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your Common Entrance Exams tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of Common Entrance Exams tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group Common Entrance Exams tuition in Abingdon depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
