Reviews for English Tutors in Leicester

5.0

We found Laura to be an amazing tutor for our daughter who has complex learning needs. We had just started navigating home education and all the trauma that goes with breaking away from conventional schooling. We were also in a very upsetting time for our daughter who was struggling to adjust to a new way of schooling. So when Laura joined and fit in immediately we were all so relieved. We found Laura to be exceptionally patient and kind, very generous with her time (organising trips to the library or educational visits somewhere) which meant a tremendous amount to us. But for our daughter, she did become a firm favourite, and Laura was able to adapt her style of teaching to suit the way our daughter learned. This is so important to engage with a child with SEN, understanding how they learn and understanding when to push and when not to. Laura really went above and beyond to connect with our daughter, and set her up so well for learning in a new environment. We couldnt recommend Laura highly enough, and any child who has her support and tutoring is an exceptionally lucky one. Lucy Wright

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 Leicester 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 Leicester. 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 Leicester 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.
