First Tutors provides parents with a convenient way to connect with tutors in Glasgow. The educational system of Scotland is unlike that found in the rest of the United Kingdom. Perhaps most significantly, Scotland does not participate in the GCSE exams. They have only recently begun to implement standardised exams, and those results are not widely available to the general public. This can make it challenging for parents to determine the quality of education their child is receiving based on objective measurement. For some, this is a point of pride, and the independent nature of the educational system in Scotland is what many believe makes it superior to other academic systems throughout the United Kingdom.

Due to this policy, if your child is struggling to thrive in school, it can be difficult to determine if the cause is due to a problem with the instructional delivery or your child's ability. In either case, a professional tutor can work closely with your child to help them reach their academic potential. In almost all traditional classrooms, there is one teacher providing instruction to a large group of pupils. While this does allow the greatest number of children to receive access to academic opportunities, it isn't always the most efficient way for each child to learn. Every child is unique in the way that they learn best.

Your child's personal tutor has the advantage of working directly with one student. This gives a tutor the opportunity to discover your child's learning style, academic strengths, and where they are struggling. Your child's personal tutor can then develop a programme of study that is specifically designed to meet learning needs and deliver information in a way that will make it more easily accessible.

It's important to note that the Scottish National Standardised Assessments in literacy and numeracy have recently been implemented for students in P1, P4, P7, and S3. During these years especially, home tuition can be invaluable in helping your child prepare for their upcoming examinations.

No matter which Glasgow primary school your child will attend, First Tutors understands just how important these formative years are. The centralised platform offered by First Tutors makes it easy to connect with a personal tutor in the Glasgow area. Your child's tutor can meet with them in person for a tutoring session in the comfort of your own home or at a nearby public space, such as a library, university campus, or park. If it is difficult to accommodate an in-person tutoring session due to a full schedule, you may find that online tutoring offers a greater degree of flexibility. First Tutors provides a secure online learning environment to allow students and tutors to connect in face-to-face tutoring sessions at a time and place that is most convenient for the child and their family.

You child can work with their highly qualified personal tutor to ensure they have a firm understanding of the critical numeracy and literacy skills they are developing throughout their primary school years. When children are unable to master these skills in primary school, they may struggle to achieve their academic goals in secondary school and beyond.
