📖 How can private tuition help me pass my GCSEs?
Students are under a lot of pressure during their GCSEs. With so many different subjects to study for and so much riding on the outcome, it can be incredibly overwhelming. Having a maths and physics tutor, GCSE maths tutor, chemistry tutor or GCSE English tutor can help relieve students of some of this pressure.
Whether you decide to find a tutor to help with multiple subjects or one that you are struggling with in particular, a tutor will be able to guide you through what you need to know for the exams, in addition to teaching you useful study techniques for when you are revising by yourself. GCSE tutors are experts in the curriculums, exam boards and techniques needed to pass the exams.
👩🏫 How can I choose the right GCSE tutor?
Finding tutors is relatively easy thanks to the hundreds of tutors available online, however, with so many options available, finding the right tutor can be a challenge. That’s why it is essential to have a clear understanding of what your criteria is before you start your search.
First, identify what GCSE subjects you find the hardest or which you would like to take to A Level and university. Once you know which subjects you need help with, you can start finding tutors that specialise in these areas. Make sure you analyse each tutor’s qualifications, experience and reviews before asking for a free trial lesson or interview. During this free trial or interview, assess whether you have a good rapport with the tutor and whether their lessons are what you need. This will help you identify which tutor is the best one for you.
✍️ What should I expect from private tuition?
If you have never had a private tutor before, it can be hard to know what to expect from your private tuition. You should not expect your private lessons to replace revision. Private tuition should be seen as a complement to your self study time and an opportunity to resolve any doubts you may have.
👀 Which subjects do I need a private tutor for?
There are general tutors that can help you with multiple subjects like science and maths tutors or maths and physics tutors as well as more specific tutors like chemistry tutors that focus on one subject in particular. The subjects you should focus on depend on your grades. Which subjects do you find difficult? What subjects do you want to study at A Level or university?
💰How much does private tuition for GCSE students cost?
Although this varies greatly, the cost of private tuition for GCSE students tends to fall into the range of £15 to £30 an hour. GCSE tutors charge different prices depending on their level of experience, what subjects they teach and other factors.
