Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

📖 Why should I hire an English tutor if I’m a native speaker?

There are many reasons why you may want to hire an English tutor, despite being a native speaker. One of the most common reasons is because students need help passing their secondary school exams such as the GCSEs, A Levels, Highers and Nationals. 

In general, English tutors can be broken down into English language tutors and English literature tutors. English language tutors can help students achieve good written, spoken and reading skills. English literature tutors, on the other hand, can help students study the works of writers, poets and playwrights.

You do not have to be a secondary school student to need an English tutor, you may want help developing your writing skills, if you wish to pursue journalism or become a writer. You may also need an English tutor to help you write articulate essays for university.

👩‍🏫​ How to choose the right English tutor?

To choose the ideal English tutor for your private classes you should evaluate criteria such as: experience, teaching methods, availability, price and qualifications. Remember that you should feel comfortable with the teacher to get the most out of the classes.

✍️​ What should I expect during English tuition?


Teaching methods differ depending on the tutor. There is no one correct way to teach a class. If you want to know what kind of classes a tutor teaches, some tutors offer the first lesson for free so that you can get to know their teaching style. You will see “First lesson free” highlighted in the tutor’s advert and FindTutors profile if it is available. In general, English classes on FindTutors last 1 hour given that tutors are paid at an hourly rate. However, the time can also be negotiated between the student and teacher.

👀 Where can I find private English classes?

You can search for an online English tutor or for an English tutor that teaches near you using a tutoring marketplace like FindTutors. Both online and in-person classes are good ways to improve your English, the method you choose depends on your preferences and availability. 

💰How much do private English classes cost?

The price of private English tuition varies greatly. It depends on factors such as the tutor’s experience and qualifications. In general, more experienced and qualified tutors charge more for their time. It can also depend on things like whether tuition is their full-time job or just part-time and whether or not they teach in person. Prices can range from £6 to £25 an hour.

Private English language and literature classes

The importance of English Literature and English Language

English literature and English language play a crucial role in our education system, as well as in our overall personal and professional growth. The study of English Literature allows us to delve into the rich and diverse world of literary works, exploring different genres, themes, and writing styles. It helps us develop critical thinking skills and analytical abilities, enabling us to interpret complex texts. Moreover, it exposes us to different cultures, societies, and perspectives, broadening our understanding of the world around us.

Having access to qualified English language and literature tutors further enhances the learning experience, ensuring that students receive the necessary guidance to excel in these areas.

When should I or my child start private English lessons?

It depends on your goal. If you want to hire an A Level English Literature tutor to help pass your A Level, for example, you should start lessons in September at the beginning of your A Levels to make sure that the tutor has enough time to cover all the topics needed for your exam. 

If, however, it is more of a personal goal such as improving your writing skills, there is no specific time frame in which you need to achieve a certain level. You can therefore start classes whenever you want!

6 essential tips for studying English

Some people find English harder than others, which is why hiring a private English tutor can be helpful. Here are 6 tips to help you make the most of your private English tuition:

  1. Avoid distractions: One of the biggest mistakes students make when trying to study a subject we are not very familiar with is not concentrating. English language and English literature can be challenging subjects so stay away from distractions and concentrate on your private English class. If you keep your focus, you will learn much faster.
  2. Write notes: Writing notes during your English classes will help you memorise important information and provide you with revision notes when it comes to exam time. 
  3. Get to know your tutor: One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to take classes with someone you don't identify or get along with. So, when choosing your private English teacher, make sure you choose someone you find easy to get along with. If you learn with a tutor you like, you will feel less ashamed or embarrassed of making mistakes and will enjoy the classes more.
  4. Do not be afraid of making mistakes: The biggest obstacle students face when learning is being afraid of making mistakes. If you think "I can't learn that" or “I don’t want to say that in case I make a mistake” it can hinder your progress. It is extremely important that you are not afraid of making mistakes. Only then can your private teacher correct you and show you the right way.
  5. Do the exercises: Private English tutors usually help you with the exercises set in class, but to learn English literature or language properly you have to do your part. Make an effort to absorb and practise all the information given during your private English classes.
  6. Repetition: To make sure you continue progressing, you should have frequent and recurring English classes with a professional who will support your development. A private English tutor will help you by customising the classes and teaching methods to your learning style.

About private English lessons

Although there are many tips on how to study English effectively, none of them will have any effect if you do not make the most of your classes with your private English tutor.

Private English classes should be dynamic and tailored towards your goal. Remember what you want to accomplish with private tuition, whether it’s acing your exams or writing a novel. You will have the full attention of your tutor, so take advantage of this opportunity to resolve any doubts you may have.
