How to find a private tutor

"Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself"

Chinese Proverb

Why the need for a private tutor?

In today's challenging economic climate, there is a tougher fight for top schools, university places, and employment. With schools and university admissions becoming more competitive, people are turning to private tuition to help them stay on top.

In today's teaching environment pupils may not get the full attention they need because of the busy classrooms, lack of teacher time, motivation, encouragement or challenge. All of these factors can lead to pupils falling behind or losing interest in subjects, which lead to poor performance.

We appreciate the demanding lifestyles of parents in the crazy and busy world we live in! Individual attention is a key focus; pupils desperately need it, but parents and teachers are not always able to provide it.

Private tutors provide the gap which most teachers cannot fill, and bring life into subjects which may have once been a dreaded fear. Therefore, having one-to-one lessons means that pupils get the special attention that they may not otherwise receive.

Tutors are able to shape and adapt their teaching to individual’s needs and aspirations. Having a private tutor tailored to your needs, makes learning more enjoyable, rewarding and successful.

How a private tutor can help improve a pupils’ learning

We at Turtle Tutors have identified 5 key ways that private tutors can help enhance a pupils learning.

Improve understanding

 

Tutors are in the unique position to tackle each topic from a different range of perspectives. This means that they can clarify concepts and help foster a deeper understanding of the subject matter. By adapting the most appropriate teaching style to the pupil, tutors help improve understanding.

Motivate learners

 

Tutors help motivate pupils and improve their self-confidence. This ultimately gives pupils the incentive to work alone between lessons, allowing them to take pride for their success.

 Improve organisational & study skills

 

Good organisation holds the key to a successful learning environment. Our tutors empower pupils to be organised and apply  the right study methods. This gives pupils the ability to control and set the pace of their learning.

 Encourage learners

 

Many pupils have negative feelings towards certain subjects and topics. Our tutors aim to encourage belief in their ability through praise and encouragement. Having the right mind-set will help them effectively tackle their school work, and improve their overall confidence. 

Work alongside you

 

Our private tutors should provide consistent assessment and feedback on the pupils learning, which is important for their development. This means that parents work with the tutor to ensure that the aims and goals of the tuition are met.

 Private tuition empowers pupils’

 

Tutors aim to empower pupils to work independently. What happens in between lessons is just as important as what happens during lessons. Tutors motivate and encourage pupils to work hard in between the lessons.

Ultimately pupils need to sit their tests and exams by themselves; private tutors understand this and will do all they can to ensure they are confident and empowered going into exams.

To get the best from the lessons tutors, are encouraged to look at pupils                              ‘past work, present work and future work’.

Past work
The classroom environment usually restricts teachers to covering only current work or work planned for a specific lesson. Tutors, on the other hand, are able to fill in any gaps in past knowledge, regardless of the pupil's current position in the syllabus. Going over past work not only improves the pupil's fundamental understanding, but also creates a solid foundation for future learning.

Present work
It is vital that private tutors look at the pupils present work on a periodic basis, in order to familiarise themselves with their present class work. This ensures that the tutor is fully aware of their present position in the curriculum, which is fundamental to teaching and learning.

Future work
Tutors help to prepare pupils for upcoming tests and exams by ensuring that the appropriate and effective study methods are used, and that they do not leave work until the last minute.

  • At the first meeting ask to see a copy of their certificates, DRB (Criminal Records Bureau), references or any other information (if necessary)

  • Confirm where the tutoring will be taking place and who will be present
  • Pupils should always tell a friend or family member when they are engaging in private tuition so that someone is aware of your whereabouts.
