Why is English so important?

English underpins pupils' achievements across the curriculum, building the confidence and accuracy in communication that is vital in school and in life.

Primary English Tuition

The principle focus for teaching English in Primary School is to encourage high standards of language and literacy amongst all children. Equipping students with a variety of literature: fiction and non-fiction, and a solid grasp of the spoken and written language all comes together to increase their love of learning, especially in the English subject.

English is known as a core subject; therefore, it is compulsory for students to be taught English up until at least their GCSE or IGCE Examinations. In the Primary years, throughout Key Stages 1 and 2, children are taught to read and write through the use of phonics. Year 1 children all complete a Phonics Screening Test during the summer term to determine whether they need extra support with their reading. The Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 SATS also entail a large quantity of English questions, particularly with reading. In addition, spelling, punctuation and grammar (also known as SPaG).

Year 7 to Year 9 English Tuition (Key Stage 3)

The principle focus for teaching English at Key Stage 3 is to embed the core skills into students before they reach Key Stage 4.

Reading fluently, writing coherently and developing a wide vocabulary are a few of those skills. Students are encouraged to read as often as possible, not just for information but also for pleasure. A range of literature is encouraged from Shakespeare to modern day texts, however, choosing literature which they enjoy in their own time, can spark a love for reading and in turn, enhance their own grammar.

Spoken language will also emerge; through reading out loud in a classroom environment to undertaking formal presentations to their peers.

GCSE and IGCSE English Literature and Language Tuition

The principle focus for teaching English at Key Stage 4 is to build upon those skills they have been practicing throughout Key Stage 3; reading, writing, grammar and spoken English.

Reading should be more challenging, with poetry becoming a main source of literature. Students will analyse various sources of literature and be able to create their own opinions and debates. Students will practise their own formal writing, in addition to their creative writing using the imagination, wide vocabulary and literary terminology.

Spoken Language is also assessed at GCSE level, students should be able to speak effectively and confidently using Standard English.

A-Level English Language and Literature Tuition

The aim of the A-Level English Language course is to develop students' interest in and enjoyment of English, through learning about its structures, functions, development and variations, and their ability to apply linguistic frameworks to a wide variety of texts, to investigate and research language use, and to express themselves with increasing confidence, accuracy and sophistication.

The aim of the A-Level English Literature course is to develop students' interest in and enjoyment of English Literature, through reading widely, critically and independently and thus to gain a wider sense of the scope of literary study.

Tuition with a qualified English teacher at your home in Solihull costs from £46.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified English teacher costs from £40.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and English tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

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