English Tutor in Torquay

I have taught English in secondary schools since 2000, with 9 years as Head of English. I learn about literature and linguistics continuously. My most vital skill is to understand the individual ways students learn, including specific learning needs, like dyslexia, ADHD and the autistic spectrum. Better than just teaching, I aim to coach students so they can manage themselves as effective learners. I am experienced with GCSE, IGCSE and A Level in English Language and English Literature. I have worked for OCR examining board as a coursework moderator. I have taught a range of boards and keep myself up to date with all specifications. I would welcome the chance to learn about the goals and aspirations of a new student, and design a bespoke package of teaching and mentoring to help them on their journey.

Miss Isabella H
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

English Tutor in Torquay

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.

There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our English teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates.

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 tutor coming to your home in Torquay 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 Torquay. 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 Torquay 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.
