Isabella H
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Study Skills Tutor in Newton Abbot

I have a first-class degree from the University of Bristol and a Postgraduate Certificate in Primary Education with English Specialism from the University of Exeter. I am also an experienced private tutor. I offer one-hour lessons where I get to know your child and tailor the approach to maximise their learning and enjoyment. I offer tuition to KS1, KS2 & KS3 children; ages 4 - 13. I am experienced in teaching across this entire age range, both in the classroom and on a one-to-one basis. I teach in a creative way to keep the pupil engaged, as I believe deep learning comes when it feels interesting. I take a pupil-centred approach; therefore, they constantly interact with the learning material and reflect on their learning journey. I teach in a metacognitive manner, meaning that the child thinks about their own thinking and learning.

Reviews for Study Skills Tutors in Newton Abbot


Drew taught our son, and we found him to be a highly sensitive, engaging and fun teacher. He took time to understand each of his strengths, interests and areas for development and built an excellent relationship with him. His creativity made the lessons engaging and fun. Drew provided one-to-one sessions for our son and established a great bond, providing encouragement and support and demonstrating a high level of emotional intelligence. He was always willing to discuss our concerns and invested time and energy into supporting and encouraging our son. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Mrs Annie Thmopsett
Study Skills Tuition in Newton Abbot

If you are looking for a fabulous teacher, then Drew is the person you are looking for. We were very lucky to have Drew teach our daughter across 2 different school years. He has a real skill in understanding the needs of each of his students and tailoring their learning accordingly whilst stretching the children to learn and making it fun. Nothing was ever a problem for Drew ... he always took the time to listen to any concerns I had and those of his pupils and help overcome any issues. Drew has also run a holiday activity course which was hugely popular with the pupils. I absolutely recommend Drew as a fantastic teacher. Mrs Lisa Wright

Paul has been tutoring my daughter for just over a year, shortly after she moved to Gordano School. She was about a school year behind at Gordano as the school starts preparing students for the GCSEs in year 9 and not year 10 as in other schools. I was looking for a tutor who would help my daughter catch up and improve her confidence in the subject. Before his tutoring, my daughter hated Maths and did not believe she could achieve a passing grade. Not only has he helped her catch up with the curriculum, but he also managed to engage her in the subject. Her confidence in it has substantially increased, and she is even considering undertaking the subject at a higher level (post GCSEs). I highly recommend him, and I have no doubt he will be able to have the same effect on other students. Jatin, Portishead

Excellent tutor. It really turned my son's grades around. I have already recommended and will continue to do so. Thanks, Paul Sarah, Bristol

Paul is a very patient and encouraging tutor. I gained more knowledge during my tutoring sessions and more confidence in my ability to pass the exams. I would recommend Paul as his calm manner puts any student at ease. Sadie, Portishead. (adult Learner)

I cannot recommend Paul highly enough. My daughter went from "I'm no good at Maths" to " I LOVE Maths" in a matter of weeks. The encouragement and confidence that Paul has given her has been amazing - and something that she carries with her throughout her lessons. Paul immediately saw what was needed and worked with her with patience and understanding... with AMAZING results. She is now going from strength to strength and is on course for A+ ..... something which she now believes she can aim for. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Paul. Mary, Bristol

Fiona has only worked with my child for a short time but her teaching method was really valuable. She was very informative and helped my child make simple steps to improve his work. She provided positive and constructive feed back to work she looked at in her own time and enabled him to gain in his self confidence in writing as well as improve the quality of his writing. She has a very gentle and positive nature with the children and I would recommend her. Mrs Munro

I am a qualified and experienced primary teacher with over four years of experience as a primary school teacher, mainly in Key Stage Two. I have taught a variety of lessons in KS1, KS2 and KS3. I am proud of my ability to engage children with learning and aim to make my lessons active and encouraging. When tutoring, it is crucial to establish a strong and positive working relationship and celebrate each step of progress a child makes. I have experience with children with a variety of educational needs. I am experienced in stretching the attainment of higher-ability children and securing the progress of children struggling academically. I adapt each of my tutoring sessions like I do my lessons.

Study Skills Tutor in Newton Abbot

I believe that every child needs a cheerleader: a teacher who understands them and champions their achievements; a mentor who empowers them to believe they can succeed. I am a qualified primary teacher with extensive secular and church school experience. I have taught most primary year groups in Early Years and across Key Stages 1 and 2 in England and Wales; including students with various SEN requirements. I left school teaching a few years ago to become a dedicated tutor and have since extended my teaching range to include KS3 English and mathematics. I use empathetic, holistic methods to raise my students' self-confidence as well as their skills. I feel that the power of putting the students' motivations and interests at the centre of their own learning cannot be underestimated; getting to know the learner so that I can best help them to achieve is at the heart of what I do.

We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

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