Reviews for tutors in Dover

4.8

Fiona taught our son from Reception to Year 3 and now teaches our daughter, who is in Year 1. They both thoroughly enjoy lessons with Fiona and they have both improved greatly as a result of them. Her lessons are well prepared and imaginative and she is genuinely interested in their academic development. When her pupil has a problem in a specific area she thinks creatively to find different ways to teach it so that the child overcomes their problem. I would strongly recommend Fiona as a tutor. Mrs A King
Dover

Fiona provides structured lessons that are designed to meet the individual needs of each child. The tuition my son has received from Fiona has enabled him to make steady progress at a comfortable and stress-free pace. He has shown increased confidence in his ability, and his development is evident. I would not hesitate to recommend Fiona to parents looking for private tuition for their children, particularly in the 4 to11 age range. Mr C Sisodia
Dover

I just wanted to say a massive thank you from all of us. We are really happy we met you and wish we had known about you from the start! You have been absolutely brilliant with Monty, and we really appreciate your patience with him....thank you for everything! Jo

Kathy tutored my son through his GCSE Maths, and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Oliver has Aspergers Syndrome and ADD, so finding the right tutor for him was paramount to his success. He believed he would fail, but she never gave up on him. Without Kathy, Oliver would not have passed his GCSE Maths. She was patient, calm and able to explain things in a way he understood, adapting her teaching as needed if things didnt make sense to him. I can honestly say I believe that he wouldnt have achieved the success he did without her. Mrs Sarah Todd

I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks for the incredible support and guidance you provided to our daughter during her GCSE preparation. Your dedication and expertise made a significant difference, and we truly believe that without your tuition, our daughter would not have achieved as much as she has. We are deeply grateful for your patience, encouragement, and the confidence you instilled in our daughter. Your impact has been invaluable, and we can't thank you enough for all your hard work. Mrs S

Tutor Dover

Hello. I am an experienced KS2 teacher who has taught across this age range and the ability spectrum and is entering the new world of semi-retirement. I also have experience helping children prepare for the Kent Test and KS2 SATs. At the heart of my working with children is determining where they are in their learning and identifying what needs to happen in order for them to achieve their aims. This involves providing the balance of support, challenge, encouragement and praise they need. I enjoy working one-to-one with children and the excitement of the 'light-bulb' moment when understanding clicks into place.

Tutor Dover

I believe that children need to feel confident and happy to learn. I am a primary school teacher with 19 years experience. I have been a private tutor for five years. I have helped children build their confidence in maths, writing and reading. I have also helped children prepare for the 11+. It is important to me that I build a relationship of trust with the children I tutor so they feel they can make mistakes and take risks to move their learning forward. I plan activities which are fun and engaging. If a child does not understand something, then I teach it in a different way, and eventually, there will be a 'lightbulb' moment. I really enjoy tutoring as you can create a bespoke curriculum for the individual child, and we have fun!

How are Dover schools performing?

We connect you to the best teachers who work across several of the best primary and secondary schools in Dover (some detailed below). This means we can reliably provide you with a local and experienced tutor that fits your needs.

Dover primary school performance:

The Dover area has 19 primary schools (one of the top being Langdon Primary School with 25% of pupils achieving at a higher standard).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“Pupils achieve well. Children make a good start in the early years, and year on year their achievements are rising. Across the school, there is an improving trend in reading, mathematics and writing since the previous inspection so that now pupils in all parts of the school achieve at least as well as pupils elsewhere.”

The Dover local authority has an average of 68% of students meeting the expected standards in reading, writing, and maths at primary school age (vs England's average of 65%). And has an average of 12% achieving higher standard (vs England's average of 11%).

The Dover area has 9 secondary schools (one of the top being Dover Grammar School for Girls with 83% of pupils achieving grade 5 or above in English and Maths GCSEs).

From their latest Oftsed report:

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced teachers in Dover, 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 Dover 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 Dover. 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 Dover 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.
