I know you're predominantly doing English at the moment, but I just wanted to thank you for what you've done with her in maths. She did an end-of-term test today and scored a whopping 76%, which is amazing! Mrs E W

She got a 5 in maths and English Language and Literature! Im so proud of her - thank you for all your help. It would have been a different outcome without you. Ms Cg
English Tuition in Bury St Edmunds

Thank you for absolutely everything - they are going to miss their sessions. The girls are so different and you have found the best way for each of them to grow in ability and confidence. Thank you! J Williams
English Tuition in Colchester

Mrs Bird privately tutored our daughters from 2019 to 2021 after we realised that they both needed a little extra help with their Maths and English reading and writing. Mrs Bird was very professional, and the children loved her. They both found her teaching style easy to understand and enjoyed the learning games that she used. We saw great progress with them over a short period of time, which resulted in both of them becoming accomplished in both subjects over the next years. Sara Chartier
English Tuition in Norwich

My daughter has been having weekly tutoring sessions with Juliet since last Summer. She always looks forward to her sessions and has never complained about going. Since starting with Juliet, her confidence in English has really grown, and we have seen an improvement in her attainment at school. Juliet is a warm and very kind teacher. Vicki Dudley
English Tuition in Norwich

Finding the right tutor is hard, it's finding a mix of them having the right skills in the subjects (or multiple subjects) the student needs help with, building a rapor so that your child feels comfortable with them, have a good working relationship and of course so that your child does well and improves in those subjects. Caroline smashed it, my son Kieran enjoys learning with Caroline in both geography and maths, he had improved loads where he has achieved better grades and gone up sets. I definitely recommend Caroline. Mr Bincalar
English Tuition in Bury St Edmunds

We are really happy and thankful that Caroline is helping our daughter towards her GCSE's. Mrs James

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 Bury St Edmunds 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 Bury St Edmunds. 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 Bury St Edmunds 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.
