Tutor in Durham

Hi! I'm Rachael. I'm an outstanding Primary teacher with over ten years of experience. I have taught in all year groups from Reception to Year 6. I have led Early Years, KS1 and I am currently leading KS2 and English in a Primary School. I also have experience teaching for both KS1 and KS2 SATS and the KS1 Phonics Check and Year 4 Multiplication Test. I understand that children learn in different ways. I plan creative and engaging lessons, ensuring that I cater to all learning styles so that every child can access the curriculum. I decided to embark on a teaching career as I wanted to make a difference in the lives of children. I strongly believe no child should be left behind or feel like they are struggling. Every child learns in different ways and at a different rate, and I would love to help to be a part of your child's learning journey.

Rachael is a complete professional. Her warm personality and highly developed interpersonal skills have created solid confidence in our daughter. Entering GCSE exams, she felt well prepared and much of this is due to Rachael's input. I would not hesitate to engage her skills again should we need to in the future for A-Levels. You are in safe hands with this teacher.

Rachael is an excellent tutor who is already making a huge difference to my daughters confidence and understanding. She has quickly identified the areas she needs to develop upon and has put a plan in place to supprt and teach her moving forward. My daughter found her very approachable straight away and says she listens to her questions and makes everything easy to understand.

I highly recommend Rachael; she is such a lovely lady. My son D was struggling with his biology, chemistry and physics prior to his GCSE exams and was worried that he may fail. After only a few lessons with Rachael he was beginning to understand the subjects a lot clearly and this was due to Rachael's teaching style. D achieved a pass in all 3 of his subjects and would not have achieved this without Racheal's support and hard work.

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 Durham 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 Durham. 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 Durham 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.
