Birmingham Teachers & Birmingham Tutoring

Birmingham is the third largest metropolitan area in the UK, with a population of about 2.4 million people. It's located 2.5 hours northwest of London and covers approximately 230 square miles. It has been recognised by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network as a Gamma+ city due to its status as an international commercial centre. In addition to being an economic hub, Birmingham also has a rich selection of cultural offerings, including the Birmingham Royal Ballet, the Library of Birmingham, and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

Birmingham has about 500 schools serving nearly 215,000 students. The city provides parents with a vast selection of academic options for their children. In fact, as one of the largest school systems in England, parents may find the number of choices to be overwhelming. First Tutors can help.

First Tutors connects pupils with personalised, private tutoring in Birmingham. Students have the option of working with their personal tutor online or in person. Private tutoring sessions can be held throughout the city and surrounding area, within the home, or in a neighbourhood cafe, park, or library. Families who worry that there simply isn't time to integrate another activity into an already packed schedule may find the online option to be an ideal solution. With online tutoring, it can be far easier to make regular tutoring sessions part of the family routine.

A qualified private tutor in Birmingham can support you or your child in the following ways:

Primary School Tutors in Birmingham

First Tutors recognises the necessity of cultivating a strong educational foundation, as well as the challenge of maintaining continuous academic growth. Students in Key Stages 1 and 2 are constantly being challenged with new material that becomes the building blocks to their literacy and numeracy skills as they advance through secondary school and into university. Ultimately, it is these early skills that also determine the ease of transition into their careers as they enter the workforce.

Private tuition gives your child the advantage of strong support and guidance that can assist them in reaching their academic goals and potential. A tutor can work with your child on the subjects they are struggling in, or they can introduce new concepts to challenge them and increase academic engagement. A private tutor can also work with your child to discover their specific academic strengths and weaknesses. This understanding provides unique insight that can be used to develop a customised learning plan filled with resources selected specifically for your child's unique situation. Primary school tutors are also highly experienced in working with the national curriculum.

As your child approaches the end of Year 6, the pressure to master certain study skills will become more intense. This is an often-overlooked area that can be dramatically improved with private tuition. If your child is poised to apply to one of the area's coveted grammar schools, a private tutor can assist them with honing their skills in preparation for the entrance exams. The skills most commonly focused on in these exams include maths, reasoning, and English.

Regardless of whether your child will be attending a grammar or secondary school, the transition from one learning environment to another can be stressful. Private tutors can work with both the child and the family to make that transitional phase less overwhelming.
