Study Skills Tutor in City of Edinburgh

As a very experienced Primary Teacher teaching in Edinburgh for 19 years and private tutoring for eight years, my passion is working with children. Getting to know each individual child and building a rapport is paramount, as is understanding how each child learns and progresses. In consultation with parents, I tailor the learning and teaching to develop skills and confidence in whichever curriculum area requires extra input and support. I strive to provide the very best level of teaching and learning for every individual I work with and believe that building solid foundations in Literacy and Numeracy gives children the tools to confidently access the wider curriculum.

Study Skills Tutor in City of Edinburgh

As an experienced teacher, my approach to tutoring goes far beyond helping my students achieve the best academic grade possible but also focuses on helping them develop resilience, confidence and transferable skills. Students enjoy my carefully balanced approach, where I quickly build rapport and take a firm but fair and encouraging approach where I challenge and motivate them to unlock the potential they have but so often do not realise or believe in. I have over eight years of qualified teacher experience in schools and sixth form college across the UK, teaching outstanding lessons from KS3 to KS5 in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I have been working as an Examiner with various exam boards since 2019, which gives me valuable insight and knowledge into how students can successfully answer exam questions.

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