Common Entrance Exams Tutor in Exeter

I have a first-class degree from the University of Bristol and a Postgraduate Certificate in Primary Education with English Specialism from the University of Exeter. I am also an experienced private tutor. I offer one-hour lessons where I get to know your child and tailor the approach to maximise their learning and enjoyment. I offer tuition to KS1, KS2 & KS3 children; ages 4 - 13. I am experienced in teaching across this entire age range, both in the classroom and on a one-to-one basis. I teach in a creative way to keep the pupil engaged, as I believe deep learning comes when it feels interesting. I take a pupil-centred approach; therefore, they constantly interact with the learning material and reflect on their learning journey. I teach in a metacognitive manner, meaning that the child thinks about their own thinking and learning.

Reviews for Common Entrance Exams Tutors in Exeter


Tanya is a fantastic tutor. She has a wealth of experience and builds confidence as well as ability in students. She makes Maths simple and enjoyable. I would highly recommend her. C Law
Common Entrance Exams Tuition in Exeter

She is the most down-to-earth, friendly and warm lady. My son, Harry, clicked with her from the first visit, which is an accomplishment in itself. His maths and his confidence in the subject were visible almost immediately. Her prices are, in my opinion, too low. She has been a godsend. Thank you Tanya. Andrea C

Tanya tutored our 9-year-old daughter in maths. She is fabulous and tutors maths from Year 3/KS2 up to A-Level. She has a natural ability to connect with children and makes maths fun. Our maths-anxious daughter couldn't wait to see Tanya each week. I highly recommend her. Debbie M
Common Entrance Exams Tuition in Exeter

I was really struggling to find ways to help my son with his science subjects when he was feeling demotivated and lacking in confidence. Paul has managed to create a plan for him over the summer which was engaging, clear and pupil-led. He understood exactly what was needed! Plus the video recordings of each lesson will be invaluable moving forward. Thank you Paul! Amanda Barnes

Paul is an excellent tutor! My daughter is with him for a year. Paul was being referred to us by our guardian as our daughter had lost all her confidence in studying at her previous school. My daughter is not the type of pupil that whoever tutor you give her, she will listen. Finding a suitable tutor whom my daughter is willing to listen is vital important. Paul finds out the school curriculum (even I have no idea) and teaches my daughter. My daughter told me that Paul uses different teaching approaches with different pupils. With Paul, our daughter gets confidence in her studies, she loves Pauls lessons, and she gets academic rewards for previous term and this term! Thank you Paul! Linda Lo

My son is really enjoying his lessons with Paul. My son is 12 and really loves physics and maths and was finding school lessons not very interesting. Pauls lessons have been tailored at my sons areas of interest and are challenging his understanding of what hes read outside of classes which is exactly what Ive asked Paul to help my son with. Recommended. Andy

Brilliant maths tutor, especially understanding of any SEN needs & neurodivergent friendly. Paul has been tutoring my daughter in the lead up to her GCSEs. He has really helped her gain confidence in her ability & helped her to understand many topics in maths that she was previously struggling with. My daughter has autism, Paul's approach has been tailored to her individual needs & learning style. My daughter enjoys her sessions with Paul & is very complimentary about him. Paul is patient & kind, I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a maths tutor. Jo Nutbeem

Patient and tailored approach to learning. I was looking for a teacher that could help build confidence in a subject that my daughter really struggled with. Paul's slow and steady pace has provided the perfect approach to build on the basics, nurture understanding and build confidence. Gina

Absolutely amazing Paul is great with the home schooling group. Children have been enjoying his lessons since the beginning, and I notice how they have improved their confidence with Maths (Year 2-3). Thank you for your patience and warm approach. David GarcÍa Jaramillo

Very helpful 1:1 sessions. Tailored around my daughter's needs. She is able to discuss science and math topics she found difficult in school. Bonus of having the videos of the sessions available for revision. Very reasonably priced as well. Daughter feels more confident in the topics she has covered so far. Would defo recommend. Marsha

Paul has been tutoring my son for a few months now at Physics A level. We are all so glad we found him! He makes the subject interesting and fun, which were the main aspects lacking from classes in school. He explains topics well and the technology used means that the virtual tutoring works really well. The one-to-one approach allows time to clarify concepts George hasnt fully grasped, as well as covering topics in more depth. We have gone from having a son who wanted to drop Physics A level to one who is now doing well and even finding it enjoyable! Sue Brock

We`re very pleased with our choice of tutor. Paul has been helping our daughter (Y7) with her Science for 4 weeks now and in that time we have found him to be very reliable, and he clearly knows his subject well. He identified the areas that our daughter struggles with and he is actively supporting her by explaining things well and tailoring his approach to her needs. Our daughter finds her sessions very helpful at building her confidence. We are hoping to continue with Paul. Isabella Vlisidou

Excellent A-Level Physics Support. Our son has been supported by Paul for the last few months in his A-level physics. Our son finds it very effective and chose not to switch his tutor even when Paul was abroad. Fortunately Paul is always reachable, punctual and reliable, even in the middle of COVID-19 pandemic. His online tuition is well-established and works really well.In these strange times, when the schools are closed, Paul's educational support is particularly appreciated.  Elena Innes

Paul is an excellent tutor. My son is enjoying the lessons and says that the hour seems to fly past. Paul pitches his teaching at just the right level and his explanations are very clear. He uses online tools very successfully to deliver his Zoom teaching. He is obviously a hugely experienced tutor and I would highly recommend him. Elizabeth Witchard

We are very grateful to Paul, he has helped our daughter (Y9) to become confident in science ( chemistry, physics) in a short period of time ( about 6 lessons) and I was so happy to hear from her that at last she understood the subject. Paul is an experienced, professional tutor and we are going to stay with him until GCSE for sure! Natalia

Delina has been teaching my child for 10 months, and in that time, my daughter has gone from the bottom of her maths group to the top. Before Delina my daughter did not enjoy maths and was always struggling. When we met Delina, she built my daughter's foundation in Maths; she gave her the belief and confidence that she could do it. Delina is an excellent tutor; she has all the necessary resources to take a child to a higher level. I am absolutely amazed at how well my daughter is doing in Maths. My daughter passed her 11 plus in the high school she wanted. She also got a Gold Star in a National Competition in Maths. My daughter loves her lessons with Delina and absolutely loves Maths and this is all thanks to Delina!!  Mrs Raman Naghotra

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a Common Entrance Exams tutor coming to your home in Exeter 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 Exeter. 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 Exeter 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.
