First Tutors offers a centralised platform to connect parents and pupils with private tutors in and around the city of Derby. Pupils can work with a personal tutor in a secure online learning environment or in person. Sessions can be held in the comfort of your own home or in a nearby public area, such as a cafe or library. If scheduling a personal tutoring session seems incompatible with your hectic schedule, you may want to consider online tutoring sessions, which can provide a greater degree of flexibility.

Private tuition offers a wide range of benefits for students of all ages and abilities. One of the challenges of learning in a traditional classroom setting is the one-size-fits-all approach that is so common in modern education. Classroom teachers are faced with a large group of children who have a diverse set of interests and ability levels. These children are then taught the same material, at the same rate, in the same way. Unfortunately, this approach isn't effective for all children. Enrolling the services of a personal tutor can provide students with the attention they need for improvement in key academic areas.

No matter how highly regarded the school your child attends, it's still possible students may struggle with core concepts in numeracy and literacy during the first years. Without a solid foundation in these areas, many children will find their subsequent academic endeavours are far more challenging than they need to be.

A private tutor can take the time to work directly with your child to discover exactly where he or she is struggling the most. By identifying your child's unique academic strengths and areas of focus, along with their personal interests and learning style, your child's tutor can create a learning programme designed specifically to help them reach their academic potential as efficiently as possible.

As your child nears the end of their primary school years, it is important to set them up for success in their secondary studies. Many parents do not realise that independent study skills, time management strategies, organisational skills, and testing confidence are all areas which can be improved upon with the supervision and assistance of a personal tutor. During your child's more advanced studies, these are precisely the kinds of educational skills they need to succeed and even thrive.

Beginning with Year 7, your child will likely find they have an increased level of freedom and responsibility in regards to their academic future. While they will have access to a greater number of subjects, they will also be responsible for more work and independent study. This can be especially challenging for students who are more comfortable with the level of guidance and structure provided in most primary schools. Working with a personal tutor can help your child ease into this transition without suffering academic losses.

As your child moves into the later years of secondary school, they will no doubt begin to feel the pressure associated with the upcoming GCSEs and A levels. These exams are well established and play a significant role in determining the academic futures of students. However, both exams recently underwent structural changes that have fundamentally altered the nature of the material covered and the way in which the tests are scored. An experienced personal tutor can work with your child to help them successfully navigate the new exams and perform to their full academic capabilities.
