Tutor Cockermouth

I am a qualified and experienced primary teacher who now works as a tutor full time. My position before this was as an Assistant Head in a primary school. I have taught children across the primary age range and also have experience of working with SEN children, both as a teacher and tutor. My knowledge of the Primary Curriculum and KS1/2 SATs is up-to-date. When working with a child, my aim is to help them to fulfil their potential through teaching in a supportive, enthusiastic, fun and engaging way. I take great pride in the delivery of sessions and tailor them to needs of the child. I work with children who attend school and also those who are being home-schooled. Over the last four years, I have successfully taught lessons online to children aged from 5 to 11 years old.

Reviews for tutors in Cockermouth

5.0

Jude has worked with both of my children over the last year. Her support has been exceptional. Her explanations are clear, the pace of learning is swift without feeling rushed, and both children made notable progress during the weekly sessions. My daughter has said her maths is much improved, as is her confidence and enjoyment of the subject. I would highly recommend Jude to anyone. Becki Schofield
Cockermouth

We couldnt be happier with Jude who has been tutoring my two children for over three years. Jude takes the time to really get to know the child , she finds their weaknesses and strengths, builds their confidence and improves their skills and understanding quickly. Would recommend Jude without any hesitation. Julia Douglas
Cockermouth

Judith has been tutoring my daughter, currently in Year 11, for almost two years. We lived abroad for a number of years and when we returned to the UK my daughter had a lack of confidence in maths as well as a number of gaps in her learning. Judith was able to quickly assess where my daughter needed additional support in her maths and work with her to improve her confidence. Judith is extremely organised, often sending through worksheets and old exam papers for us to print off. She has also recommended a number of revision materials for GCSE. Due to Covid, all lessons were carried out on Zoom. The Zoom sessions worked really well for us and most importantly my daughter really enjoyed them. I would thoroughly recommend Judith. In fact, I have 2 younger children and I am likely to be in touch with Judith in the near future to ask for her support. Mrs R H

Alison helped my 15-year-old son through some difficult educational issues with pleasing and positive results, which in turn helped his confidence and self-esteem. Deborah

When working with me, a tutor who is passionate and empathetic and who knows that each individual learns differently, students will develop their love of learning, improve self-esteem and make excellent progress in a short amount of time. I am a qualified English teacher and Special Educational Needs Coordinator with over 10 years of experience in both state and private sector and I have a proven track record of supporting students to be the best that they can be. My lessons are engaging and individually tailored and have an emphasis on a love of learning. What I enjoy about 1:1 teaching is getting to know individuals and adapting lessons to their passions and interests. It also allows me to work at a pace that best suits your childs learning and establish a meaningful and open dialogue that allows each individual to overcome areas of difficulty or develop areas and strength.

I have enjoyed over 12 years teaching and tutoring children from Year 1 to Year 5 with a wide variety of children of every ability and background, including specific needs such as autism, speech and learning difficulties (as well as those who are ahead and need extra challenge). I have always worked hard to help children build their self-confidence, as I think self believe is one of the most important keys to success. I can help you fill gaps, keep on track or get ahead. I know that some children find it a lot easier to focus 1:1 than in a whole class setting (and may have different needs to their peers) so extra support during term time can be very valuable and beneficial. I tailor my teaching to individual needs and personalities as I know we all learn differently.

Does your child need support as they prepare for their SATs (KS1 or KS2)? Or, perhaps they would benefit from a confidence boost before September? Well, Im here to help. More specifically, I'm here to help your child discover how they learn and process as an individual. My name is Sophie, and I am a fully qualified Primary School Teacher with experience teaching KS1 and KS2 children. I am well versed in the expectations surrounding reading, writing, maths and SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar). My tutor sessions are consciously tailored to your childs individual needs, thus allowing them to build their knowledge, skills and confidence. The focus can be singular and focus on specific areas of need. Alternatively, you might prefer broader coverage of multiple topics per the national curriculum. My existing tutees describe my lessons as practical and engaging.

Find a Tutor in Cockermouth

Teachers To Your Home specialises in connecting you to local Cockermouth-based teachers. We provide tutoring for all subjects and ages, but have the most experience and teachers in the following subject areas:

Tuition with a qualified teacher at your home in Cockermouth costs £46ph. Online tuition with a qualified teacher costs from £40ph. Create your own small tuition group in Cockermouth and tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced teachers in Cockermouth, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

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