Reviews for English Tutors in Leighton Buzzard

5.0

My son failed English twice and having been in-between schools and doing his GCSEs in COVID he struggled with focus. Anastasia was positive and encouraging, she was honest with him had us when he lost focus. He had work set for him to practice the structure of his questions. This was his forth time and it was really important that he passed. Not only did he pass he gained a higher grade then he expected. Thank you we highly recommend Anastasia Mr Newbolt

Anastasia is a wonderful tutor, she is patient kind and encouraging. She helped my daughter find her confidence and belief in herself. We cant recommend her highly enough. Mrs Butterworth

Sheetal has worked with my daughter for a number of years and helped my daughter get into her chosen school. She achieved straight A's with hard work, consistent reliability, and knowing where my daughter had gaps in her learning. I couldn't recommend her enough for her dedication, knowledge and commitment. I definitely give her 10 out of 10, and anyone would be lucky to have her as a teacher/tutor. Ms N.s.

We couldn't be happier with the progress our son has made since starting his maths tutoring sessions with Gill. As a Year 2 student, he was struggling with confidence in maths, but thanks to Gill's fun, enthusiastic, and engaging approach, he now looks forward to his weekly sessions. Gill has a wonderful way of making learning enjoyable, and it's evident in the way our son's confidence has soared. Weve seen a noticeable improvement in his skills and his attitude towards maths. Highly recommend Gill to any parent looking for a fantastic tutor! Mrs H Scott
English Tuition in Leighton Buzzard

We are incredibly grateful for the difference Gill has made in our daughter's education. After missing a significant amount of school, our daughter had several gaps in her maths knowledge and was feeling quite overwhelmed. Gill has been amazing at identifying and addressing these gaps with patience and enthusiasm. She makes each session engaging, which has not only helped our daughter catch up but also reignited her love for learning. Thanks to Gill's expertise and positive approach, our daughter now feels much more confident and prepared for her upcoming exams. We highly recommend Gill to any parent seeking a dedicated and effective tutor! D Wilmott
English Tuition in Leighton Buzzard

My daughter is really enjoying her GCSE revision lessons with Tiffani. She says Tiffani teaches her tips and tricks to help her learn, understand and remember maths. We have upped to two lessons a week and have never seen our daughter so happy to have a math lesson! Thank you Tiffani. Mrs Gaitskell

Great tutor, helped my son immensely with his English as he had fallen woefully behind post covid. Now he's so much more confident in the subject thanks to Jeff! Mrs Chettra-mann
English Tuition in Chesham

My dughter is currenntly being tutored by Jeff through her A level in English Literature (aiming for A*). Jeff is a brilliant tutor, who is always well prepared for the lesson, thinking and planning ahead and open for questions from students and parents. What I (as a parent) like most is the fact that Jeff knows how to challenge my daughter so she can reach her potential. I was very impressed by the first lesson's assesment which Jeff prepared for her, (not taking my assesment for granted), and his detailed feedback. I truly recommend Jeff as a tutor. Mrs Kopacz

Location
Home Tuition: Involves an English tutor coming to your home in Leighton Buzzard 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 Leighton Buzzard. 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 Leighton Buzzard 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.
