Private tutoring sessions can be held throughout the city in a venue that best fits the needs and schedule of the pupil.

Families who are worried that there is no room in their schedule for private tutoring may prefer the option of working with an online tutor.

A highly qualified personal tutor in the Cambridge area can support you or your child at any stage of the learning process.

Primary School Tutors in Cambridge

First Tutors is aware of the importance of establishing a firm academic foundation, as well as the difficulty of maintaining a steady rate of academic growth. This is especially true for students in Key Stages 1 and 2. During this time, pupils are being continuously challenged to learn and integrate new material that will be necessary as they continue their studies in secondary school. Without mastering these skills during primary school, students may struggle into their university years or as they move forward on a career path.

Private tuition affords your child the opportunity to benefit from enhanced guidance and support from a qualified personal tutor who can help them achieve their academic potential. A tutor can work with your child on the exact areas they are struggling with, or they can introduce new educational concepts to provide students with the challenging material they need to stay engaged in the learning process. A private tutor will work to understand your child's unique academic strengths and weaknesses, and then the tutor can use this knowledge to provide unique study materials specifically designed with your child in mind. Professional tutors understand that no two children are exactly alike and that there is no single approach to tutoring that will work for every child. This individualised, one-on-one approach is important and powerful.

Some of the best primary schools in the Cambridge area include:

Regardless of which primary school your child attends, you may notice that the pressure to master specific skills intensifies as they approach the end of Year 6. This includes the ability to properly map out study time and the implementation of effective studying techniques. These critical skills are far too often overlooked by pupils and parents, but they become increasingly important as children transition into secondary school. Thankfully, time management and study skills can be dramatically improved with the assistance of private tuition. A private tutor can also assist your child with preparing for grammar school entrance exams.

Whether your child will be attending a grammar school or another secondary school, the transition from primary school to a more rigorous learning environment can cause unexpected stress. Private tutors can work with both your child and other members of the family to make this transition proceed more smoothly.
