Chris K
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Tutor in Portsmouth

I have been working in schools for nine years and have developed extensive experience working with children for whom traditional lessons haven't quite worked. I have extensive experience working with children with additional needs and, as a parent myself, I understand that you may feel your child might not be getting as much attention as you'd like at school. I have worked on both sides of the primary to secondary transition. I have supported with examinations, so I am well positioned to help your child with SATS, 11+ or any other academic needs. Away from education, I have taught karate for 10 years and am a keen rugby player and cyclist.

Tutor in Portsmouth

I am a qualified primary school teacher with over five years experience. I currently work at a local junior school, with most of my experience being in Year 3 and Year 5. Not only am I a teacher, but I am also a Mathematics subject leader at my school, so I have excellent knowledge of teaching Maths at the primary school level. Having worked across different year groups, I have experience teaching a range of year group curriculums due to having to meet the needs of SEN children that I have taught so I am aware of what needs to be covered in each year group. With all of my classes, I have built positive relationships with the children, meaning my children make good progress during their time with me as I believe in being emotionally available as well as teacher available. I love to make lessons active and outdoors where possible to ensure children enjoy learning.

My son has been having Hester for around six months. She keeps him focused and has given him such confidence. I couldnt recommend her enough. He is a different child! She is amazing! L.sullivan
Portsmouth

Hester has been helping my daughter, who is in year 3, with English for about six months. The sessions have been varied, with many different approaches used to find the best way to help my daughter learn. Hester has adapted the sessions well to virtual lessons, which have been just as worthwhile as the face-to-face sessions we had before the lockdowns. Hester has listened to our areas of concern and then found excellent resources to focus on these areas. R.mellor

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 Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth. 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 Portsmouth 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.
