Miss Kitty  R
£35.00 to £40.50 ph

Tutor in Derby

I am a passionate educator, with almost ten years of experience working in a variety of schools. I have acquired in-depth experience in a diverse range of school settings across the globe. I have tutored children towards ISEB, GL and CEM. This variety has given me an in-depth understanding of the primary learning journey. In my previous role, I used my passion for Reading and Literacy to fulfil the role of Literacy Coordinator. This has given me the experience to develop my own literacy curriculum and assessment programme. In my opinion, any child who does not enjoy reading has just not found the right book - yet.

Miss Lamorna M
£30 to £36 ph

Tutor in Derby

I am a qualified teacher, specialising in KS2 and KS3 education (Junior age 7-11 and Secondary age 11-14). My specialist subjects are English and Maths. I was a classroom teacher for 12 years and have tutored for 8 years. I work with students full-time and am available during the day. My teaching experience varies from KS2 and KS3, across various curriculum subjects. I have previously taught in primary, secondary and middle schools. I cater to various learners' styles and love to make learning engaging and bring in real-life contexts to help children make real-world links to their learning. My aim is to fill in the gaps in my pupils' learning to help them understand the concepts they encounter in their lessons - I like to know what they are learning in school so I can change their learning to fit. I love to tutor on a 121 basis as it allows me to work with children in a different context and get to know them as learners.

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 Derby 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 Derby. 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 Derby 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.
