Reviews for English Language Tutors in Thame

5.0

Great tutor, helped my son immensely with his English as he had fallen woefully behind post covid. Now he's so much more confident in the subject thanks to Jeff! Mrs Chettra-mann

My dughter is currenntly being tutored by Jeff through her A level in English Literature (aiming for A*). Jeff is a brilliant tutor, who is always well prepared for the lesson, thinking and planning ahead and open for questions from students and parents. What I (as a parent) like most is the fact that Jeff knows how to challenge my daughter so she can reach her potential. I was very impressed by the first lesson's assesment which Jeff prepared for her, (not taking my assesment for granted), and his detailed feedback. I truly recommend Jeff as a tutor. Mrs Kopacz

Hayley is a fantastic communicator, and her replies are always prompt. She explains ideas really well and engages consistently in every session. I would highly recommend her, particularly if you have any English queries. Simran C

I recently had the pleasure of working with Miss Hayley P on Sherpa and I am extremely satisfied with my experience so far. She is a highly skilled and dedicated tutor who has helped me improve my techniques in analyzing poems for my English GCSE this summer. Her deep understanding of poetry analysis and effective teaching methods made complex concepts easy to grasp. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking tutoring for English Literature. Lina N

Thank you so, so much for all the help and support youve given me through this. I genuinely dont think I could have done it without you. Thank you. Student Dh

Thame English Language Tutor

Since I was at university, I have taught individual students a wide range of subjects. I have taught many neurodiverse and homeschooled students and enjoy helping those who have previously not enjoyed the best experience of education. I have taught in colleges and senior schools, but most of my career has been in prep schools, where I have taught a very wide range of academic subjects, as well as being a Head of Classics and taken a full role in all aspects of pastoral life. My individual students have received tuition in the evenings, at weekends and in the holidays. I put the needs of the student at the centre of my work and try to make the whole experience positive and interesting. I have taught some families for nearly twenty years, sometimes over more than one generation. I am happy to travel to students' homes or to teach online.

Hello. I have been teaching for too many years to count but I still love it. I particularly enjoy one to one tuition as it's very rewarding to be able to really get to know pupils quickly and make a big difference in a short time. I am a highly experienced teacher of many years experience and now teach children online or at home, some to address weak areas and many to prepare them for entrance examinations for secondary education. I am a highly experienced year six teacher and am currently working in a local multiacademy trust doing catch up maths and English for year six pupils on a one-to-one basis. I'm very happy to meet you online and chat to you about exactly what your requirements are and how I can help.

Please provide your tuition requirements above.

Tuition with a qualified English Language teacher at your home in Thame costs from £48.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified English Language teacher costs from £42.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and English Language tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced English Language teachers in Thame, 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 English Language 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 an English Language tutor coming to your home in Thame 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 Language 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 Language 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 Language tutor is required to travel to your home, in Thame. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your English Language 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 Language tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of English Language 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 Language tuition in Thame 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.
