Our English Tutors
I charge £50ph for 1:1 tuition. For group rates, please contact me.
A recent homeschooled tutee’s parent left me this testimonial: ‘We cannot express our gratitude enough for your support of our son throughout the last two years. Your clear understanding of his learning challenges and your ability to tailor your teaching to suit his ways of working allowed our son to grow in confidence and begin to explore his creative side leading to an increased ability to express himself in writing. Indeed, not only did he begin to read more but he also began to write more. Your encouragement of his writing and forensic approach to the reading disciplines of the exam paper meant that when it came to taking the exam, he was absolutely clear on how he approached the questions. Clearly his result of a grade 9 exceeded even our expectations and is testament to your dedication, professionalism and ability in preparing candidates for public exams whatever their learning needs are.’I am a highly qualified and experienced teacher.
As well as offering tuition sessions of one, two or three hours on a regular basis, I offer intensive day and two day long courses to pupils preparing for exams. These are during half terms and school holidays and are one on one. Please enquire for further details.
Why An English Tutor?
Universities and employers very much value people with strong English GCSE and A Level results; such qualifications equip people with the vital communication skills required in most careers and in our day-
There are a range of reasons why you may think that an English tutor is the way forward. We and our tutors find that the most common reasons that students require an English tutor are as follows:
- Struggling with GCSE English Language
Since many employers and universities require a grade 4-5 (formerly grade C) in English Language, there tends to be a lot of pressure for students to perform well. Our York English tutors are all qualified teachers and so encounter such students as part of their daily job.
At York Tuition, we have specialist English tutors trained to help students develop coping mechanisms to deal with the daily challenges that Dyslexia brings. Our tutors are able to help students realise for themselves that Dyslexia needn’t be a barrier to success, both academically and in life.
- The Current GCSE
With the system for GCSEs having changed and students now being graded from 9-1 rather than from A*-G, things can currently seem quite confusing. Given that our tutors are also fully-qualified classroom teachers and so have experience in delivering and marking the new GCSEs, you can rest assured that students are in safe hands with our English tutors.
Whatever your reason for seeking an English tutor, we have English tutors who can help. Simply choose your tutor from their profile and contact them directly!
