Subjects available in London


First Tutors offers private, personalised tutoring in London, both online or in-home throughout the city's 32 boroughs. London-based tutors work with pupils of all ages, in many subjects—whether you prefer to revise for a French exam at a cafe close to Kensington Palace or you would like a tutor to meet with your child at your home in Shoreditch. For families and individuals who are busy, travel often, or enjoy the convenience of digital assistance, online tuition is an ideal option.

A qualified tutor in London can support you in the following areas:

Primary school tuition in London

First Tutors understands the importance of a strong academic foundation. Students in Key Stages 1 and 2 are introduced to critical literacy and numeracy skills that inform their education through secondary school and into university and the workforce.

Private tuition can help your child perform to his or her potential. A tutor can introduce or revisit English, maths, or science concepts with your child, drawing from age-appropriate resources like those offered by London's British Museum and Natural History Museum, as well as your pupil's teacher. Primary school tutors are also familiar with the national curriculum.

As your child approaches and completes Year 6, study skills tuition grows in importance. If you intend to pursue admission to certain grammar schools, tutors can ready your child for the appropriate entrance exams. Typically, entrance exams assess pupils in such areas as English, maths, and reasoning, and they govern admissions to top greater London grammar schools like:

A number of independent schools in London also use entrance exams to determine admission to Year 7. While the transition from primary to secondary school can be challenging, tutors are available to assist your family throughout this process.

Secondary School and Further Education in London

Students in Years 7 through 13 may feel a great deal of stress as they progress through their GCSEs and A levels. Earning an A*/9 or an A/8 on these critical assessments involves both subject knowledge and strategy. While GCSE-level study in English, maths, and science is compulsory, pupils with diverse interests may struggle to select other GCSE subjects. A private tutor with GCSE tuition experience can help your child identify promising GCSEs in the arts, humanities, modern foreign languages, and design and technology fields.

Your child's performance on GCSE exams and in GCSE subjects determines whether he or she continues on to A level studies and university. An expert tutor can help to ensure that your pupil earns the appropriate number of grade 4 and above passes. Recent updates to the A level and GCSE structure can make home tuition particularly valuable, as pupils move away from modular instruction and toward the linear model. If your child is enrolled in an International Baccalaureate programme, you can also find IB tuition at First Tutors.

Our tutors are comfortable assessing pupils' critical thinking skills, revision techniques, and time management strategies. Tutors can also address examination stress. They can help establish a strong subject foundation in Year 7, support your child's GCSE revision efforts in Year 11, assist with A level content issues in Year 12, or ready pupils for the all-important A level examinations in Year 13.

University-Level tuition in London
