Primary Tuition in Somerset

She is the most down-to-earth, friendly and warm lady. My son, Harry, clicked with her from the first visit, which is an accomplishment in itself. His maths and his confidence in the subject were visible almost immediately. Her prices are, in my opinion, too low. She has been a godsend. Thank you Tanya. Andrea C

William Y
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Online Primary Tutor

Hello, my approach to teaching is open, investigation-based learning. For example, learning how to find fractions of amounts could be learnt from rote learning of the basic method, or your child could cut a racetrack into a given fraction of their choice and then discover what different fractions of an amount really look like. Or, when reading, there is also the option of exploring previous test papers and learning tricks to pass future papers; this can work, but many children may prefer selecting a character of their choice and drawing/ writing the impressions they have from them.rnrnI am an experience KS2 teacher with ten years of experience. rnrnI work in a successful school in Devon. I have experience working as a 1:1 online tutor with pupils and have spent hundreds of hours working with children in a 1:1 setting in classrooms or groups.

Jack T
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

Online Primary Tutor

My name is Jack. I am currently a Year 5/6 teacher, working full time at a school in Somerset. I am the current English lead, a role which I am thoroughly enjoying due to my passion and enjoyment of this subject. Additionally, I have previously led maths across the school. I have experience teaching from year 1 to year 6. I am hugely passionate about core subjects, but also have a love of PE. However, the best thing about being a teacher is helping children to develop not only their academic skills but also life skills. Encouraging children to express themselves, laugh, smile and enjoy learning are all key things that I aim to instil in those I teach on a daily basis. I have experience tutoring children aged between 8-11 and loved being able to shape learning to meet the specific needs of those particular children.

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

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