exams but with Ian's help he managed a grade B in his AS level and attained an A grade in both A2 papers. This was a huge improvement over the two years and I doubt it would have been possible without Ian's help, both with weekly tutoring and the all important pre-exam revision days. Ian's approach was personalised and intensive and my son's needs we're concentrated upon fully. Ian was always punctual and organised and...

First Tutors connects students with personalised, private tutoring in Bristol. Students can work with their private tutor in person or online. Sessions can be held throughout the city's many neighbourhoods, within the home, or in a cafe, library, or park. Bristol tutors work with pupils of all ages and in a wide variety of subjects. Families with a hectic schedule often prefer the convenience of connecting with a private tutor in an online environment at a time that is most convenient to their schedule.

A private tutor in Bristol can support you in the following areas:

Primary School Tutors in Bristol

First Tutors recognises the importance of building and maintaining a strong academic foundation. Students in Key Stages 1 and 2 are introduced to fundamental numeracy and literacy skills that create the basis of their educational journey throughout secondary school, into university, and as they transition into careers.

Private tuition provides your child with important guidance and support that can help them reach their academic potential. A tutor can introduce new concepts or focus where children are struggling in all academic areas, including maths, English, science, and history. A private tutor can work with your child to understand their specific academic strengths and weaknesses and to then develop a custom plan filled with age-appropriate resources drawn from respected academic authorities and your child's teacher. Primary school tutors are also well versed in the national curriculum. Some of the best primary schools in Bristol include:

As your child begins to approach the completion of Year 6, it becomes more important than ever to ensure study skills have been mastered. This is an area in which private tuition can be an invaluable resource. If your intention is to have your child apply to coveted grammar schools, a private tutor can help prepare your child for the appropriate entrance exams. Usually, entrance exams evaluate a pupil's mastery in the areas of reasoning, maths, and English.

Whether your child will be attending a grammar school or another secondary school, the transition can be challenging. Tutors can work independently with a child and family to help make the transition easier.

Secondary School and Further Education Tuition in Bristol

Years 7 through 13 find the stakes increasing as students begin to focus on GCSEs and A levels. In addition, grading systems have changed dramatically over the last several years. The reformed GCSEs have new content that is more challenging, and exams are taken at the end of the course. A private tutor with current GCSE tuition experience can help your child reach for their highest potential in their chosen GCSE subjects, including modern foreign languages, technology, the arts, design, and humanities.

The importance of GCSE grades cannot be overstated. A student's exam scores determine what A levels will be open to them for further study. An experienced tutor can help your pupil work towards the results necessary to achieve academic goals.

Pupils preparing for the recently updated A level exams can also benefit tremendously from the assistance of a private tutor. These changes have fundamentally altered the strategic approach students should use to prepare. The new system has moved away from a modular system with varying test dates to one that is more linear. Additionally, students enrolled in an International Baccalaureate programme can find the IB tuition support they need with First Tutors.

Our tutors are experienced in assessing a pupil's critical thinking skills, time management strategies, and revision techniques, all of which are instrumental in testing success. Tutors are also able to work with children who are experiencing examination stress or anxiety. Your child's private tutor can help them pursue a strong subject area foundation in Year 7, support their GCSE efforts in Year 11, and help them prepare for the recently revised A level examinations in Year 13.

University-Level Bristol Tuition

There are two primary options for higher education in Bristol: The University of Bristol and the University of West England. However, there are many excellent choices in the region. Some of the best in South West England include:
