Reviews for Study Skills Tutors in Somerset

4.9

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

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

Tammy has played a crucial role in boosting my son's progress in preparing for his English exam. She quickly identified his weaknesses in the first lesson and effectively taught him exam skills. His mock exam grades showed immediate improvement. Highly recommended her to others. Ms Ng

My daughter went from - I am 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. ... with AMAZING results. (Mary, Bristol)

Please provide your tuition requirements above.

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

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced Study Skills teachers in Somerset, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our Study Skills 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 Study Skills 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 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 Somerset. 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 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.
