Q

Are private tutors worth it?

Whether private tutors are worth it depends on several factors, including the student's individual needs, their learning style, and the quality of the tutor. Here are some of the benefits of hiring a private tutor:

Personalised attention: Private tutors can tailor their lessons to student's specific needs and learning styles, ensuring they receive focused and individualised attention.

Flexibility: Private tutors can work with students on their schedule and can often provide sessions at a convenient time for the student.

Increased motivation: With one-on-one attention and focused lessons, students are often more motivated and engaged in learning.

Improved performance: With personalised instruction and extra practice, students are more likely to improve their grades and performance in school.

However, it's important to find a qualified and experienced tutor who can provide effective and engaging lessons. Additionally, private tutors can be expensive, so it's important to consider the cost when deciding if they are worth it for your family.

    Emma is an excellent tutor who just did a couple of sessions with my son to help prepare for an exam. My son found her teaching to be very helpful.

    We are very grateful to Paul, who has helped our daughter (Y9) become confident in Science (Chemistry, Physics) quickly. It is lovely to hear her hear her say that she is now understanding the subject. Paul is an experienced, professional tutor, and we are going to stay with him until GCSE for sure!

    Fabulous tutor. Mr Rush has really taken care to get to know our child over the last 3 years and has helped to improve his confidence and learning. Thank you so much.

    Tina has tutored my daughter for the past 12 months. She has a wonderful approach to tutoring and is kind, caring and always patient. Tina has effectively taught my daughter maths and comprehension this past year. She consistently provides new material to work with and ensures my daughter fully understands the topics covered before moving on. My daughter has blossomed after a year of tuition; there has been a noticeable difference in her academic ability at home and in school, which we believe is the result of Tina's support over the last 12 months.

    I can highly recommend Andy as a science tutor. Andy helped my daughter greatly improve her final GCSE grade in Science. Andy is intelligent, capable and extremely patient. He has a lovely way of remaining positive during a lesson and never makes the student feel inadequate He is very encouraging and genuinely cares about the student. My daughter always looked forward to her online lesson and they got on really well.

    Paul has been teaching GSCE physics to my 9-year-old son for the past few months. My son is autistic and academically gifted. Paul has been able to engage well with him. Paul is patient, flexible and accommodating of my son’s needs. Paul has a great teaching style and uses technology to make online lessons interactive and engaging. I’d highly recommend Paul as a tutor.

    I would recommend Alistair to any parent looking to improve their child’s performance in all areas. Alistair helped my son improve his Maths and move up to a higher set at school in a matter of two months! He goes the extra mile and will always help with anything. We feel very lucky to have such an intelligent and caring tutor.

    I can highly recommend Emma. Our son was struggling with his maths, so we wanted to have a tutor before he moved to secondary. We had a weekly session booked, and Emma was fantastic with him, and he really enjoyed the sessions. His maths ability and confidence improved massively, and Emma’s sessions were fun, and she was able to support the learning he was doing in school. We would highly recommend her.

    Joel was amazing with my son in sixth form. He took the time to understand the focus areas and ensured that no time was wasted. A big part of Joel’s approach included making sure that my son felt confident in what he was doing, and this made him more comfortable applying himself. Joel managed to get my son the geography grade he needed to get into university when it wasn’t looking likely after his mocks. Thanks so much!

    Dr. Simmons has been very good and excellent in engaging my daughter right from the onset. My daughter feels motivated prior to her lessons, which is great to note and observe. The lessons seem to be very focused on working towards the set goals. We continue to look forward to this level of engagement.

    How to describe Suzie? We'd have to say like an auntie that can teach. Suzie has a calm, patient, inventive approach to teaching. She had our twin boys running into lessons throughout year five! Suzie could share the good days with the bad in a positive manner. Always finding solutions to problems, rewarding success in a way the whole family could embrace to keep continuity at school and home. We still keep in touch because it's easy to talk to an auntie that can teach...

    Mrs H has been fantastic ever since her first point of contact. My 11-year-old son has had around 6 sessions to date which he has absolutely loved. We have already seen an improvement in his work and his confidence in his core subjects. I must add, that Sarah manages to combine her very bubbly character with a relaxed professional approach which really works for us all.

    Becky provided additional 11+ tutoring for our son, specifically in Maths, because he was struggling. There was a significant improvement in his confidence, approach and ability, which was noted by his teacher at a parent’s evening. We are pleased to say he passed the 11+, and to our surprise, Maths was his highest-scoring area. On a personal level, Becky made the tutoring sessions enjoyable. Our son always looked forward to them.

    Describing Deb’s ability as an educator in psychology commends only superlatives. Her impact on my son’s education, knowledge and confidence is priceless. She didn’t just teach, but guided him successfully through moments of extreme exam pressure. She is extremely professional, very well prepared, always finds the path that suits the student when they find things challenging and she is very warm and kind with her tutees. She is my number one recommendation.

    Suzie has been tutoring my 7-year-old for several months, and I can’t recommend highly enough. Not only has his English and maths improved, but his confidence has, too. Suzie adapts her teaching style to my son's mood and really manages to connect with him every week.

    Sarah is an excellent tutor (and a truly lovely person). Her lessons are well prepared and she's superb at engaging our daughter and getting the best out of her. We were apprehensive our daughter wouldn't engage with online lessons, but Sarah has made them fun, interesting and immersive. Our daughter is always excited to see Sarah!

    Helen has been amazing, my daughter has been 100% engaged with the tutoring process and this is no doubt down to Helen approach. In a short space of time she has assessed my daughter's education level and identified key area to work on. Both my daughter and I find her easy to work with and the pace she has set is challenging but achievable. We are very fortunate to have found her!

    Teaching, coaching and guiding are basics of teaching. But transforming a student is next level. I write this as a proud parent whose son chose business studies at the end of first term in GCSE, warned to be below standard and advised to take foundation exam by the school has now ended up with Grade 8. This transformation happened only bcoz of Ms. Begum. Her method of teaching, spotting the gaps in my son’s knowledge, identifying his weak areas (writing answers appropriately for the marks and managing time) and make work to get over those were all simply superb. We feel a great sense of gratitude towards Ms. Begum for her efforts and making my son achieve a good milestone. Thanks a lot Ms. Begum. Praying to almighty to bless you with good health and long life do you can keep transforming more young lives.

    Libby began giving our son extra tutoring in Y11 and for approximately one academic year. Though this was an hour of extra tuition once a week, mainly during term-time, our son found it very useful as this helped him improve from the region of grade 4s/5s in Y10 to 7-9s in Y11. It was very helpful in improving specific aspects of the subject which required more help. It also improved his confidence in the subject. The lessons were online but our son found them similar in quality to in-person lessons. There were a range of different activities, resources and homework. Libby came across, very organised, evident in term dates and times provided ahead of time and lesson plans for the lessons. She was also professional. I also received feeback, some by request and others from Libby's initiative. All in all, I would recommend Libby as a good French tutor if you're looking for tutoring for your child.
