Abingdon English Tutor

Hello. I have been teaching for too many years to count but I still love it. I particularly enjoy one to one tuition as it's very rewarding to be able to really get to know pupils quickly and make a big difference in a short time. I am a highly experienced teacher of many years experience and now teach children online or at home, some to address weak areas and many to prepare them for entrance examinations for secondary education. I am a highly experienced year six teacher and am currently working in a local multiacademy trust doing catch up maths and English for year six pupils on a one-to-one basis. I'm very happy to meet you online and chat to you about exactly what your requirements are and how I can help.

Rebecca T
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Abingdon English Tutor

I am a qualified teacher (PGCE Primary 5-11) with specialist SEN training and significant experience supporting students from Year 1 to GCSE. I hold a first-class Master of Psychology of Education (MEd) degree, which supports my inclusive and holistic approach to teaching. I have benefited from experience working in mainstream and Special Schools and was recently accepted to undertake a Doctorate in Educational Psychology. I believe successful tuition results from building the self-esteem of young people through positive relationships. I take time to get to know students as individuals. This allows me to find creative solutions to help them to engage with - and enjoy! - the learning process. I work hard to ensure learners feel comfortable and confident to apply themselves, to ask questions, and to be proud of each small step toward mastering their goals.

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.

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.

Ashley was a godsend to help build my boys' confidence and help them both understand some difficult subjects/lessons.

Leon C
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Online English 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.

Please provide your tuition requirements above.

Tuition with a qualified English teacher at your home in Abingdon costs from £46.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified English teacher costs from £40.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and English tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced English teachers in Abingdon, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our English teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves an English 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 English 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 English 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 English tutor is required to travel to your home, in Abingdon. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your English 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 English tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of English 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 English 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.
