Hove Tutors and Hove Tutoring

Hove is located in South East England and has a history dating back to at least 1200 BC. It was in a Hove burial mound that the Hove amber cup, a Bronze Age artefact, was discovered. Aside from this historic find, the city itself has remained relatively small throughout modern history. In 1997, it was combined with the nearby city of Brighton to form the borough of Brighton and Hove, which attained city status in 2001. The combined area of Brighton and Hove is home to about 100 schools, serving nearly 37,000 students.

First Tutors offers parents and students a centralised location to connect with highly experienced tutors in the Hove area. Through First Tutors, you can schedule an in-person or online private tutoring session for yourself or your child with an experienced private tutor. A personal tutor can work with you in the comfort of your own home or in a local library, park, or other public location. If you have a busy schedule, you may find it is more convenient to schedule a tutoring session in the online learning environment.

Working with a personal tutor provides numerous advantages for students of all ages and skill levels. Many people do not realise just how different the learning process can be outside of a classroom setting. When you or your child is sitting in a traditional classroom, there is only one teacher for all the students present. This means that teacher has to teach all of the fundamental concepts for that class in a finite amount of time in a way that is most easily accessible to the majority of the students. While this system does work efficiently to provide an education to the greatest number of people, it doesn't work perfectly, and some students will need a little extra help.

A personal tutor can take the time to really get to know your child's academic strengths, areas of weakness, learning style, and even personal interests. This information can then be used by a tutor to formulate an individualised learning plan designed to help your child reach their academic potential as quickly as possible. It's truly amazing the difference personalised instruction can make.

During Key Stages 1 and 2, your child will be introduced to the core concepts of numeracy and literacy, which they will use throughout their academic career. If your child fails to fully integrate these concepts, they may struggle throughout their secondary school years and even into their university years. Working with a personal tutor can give students the academic guidance and support they need to truly master these areas and prepare them for the more advanced material to come.

The end of primary school education is an excellent time to have your child work with a professional tutor to address broader academic skills. These include things such as independent study, time management, critical thinking, testing strategies, and organisation. While direct instruction in these skills is often overlooked in traditional education, they are largely responsible for ongoing academic success. Learning and study skills can be applied to all subject areas. Just because your child appears to lack a natural aptitude for organisation or time management is no indication of a lack of capability. With the assistance of personal tutoring, students can improve these skills and their overall ability to succeed in any academic setting.

Once your child enters secondary school, they will become acutely aware that their upcoming GCSEs and A levels are of the utmost importance. Almost from the moment they enter Year 7 studies, your child will begin preparing for these critical exams. They are considered important because the scores your child receives on these tests will directly impact his or her ability to pursue future academic paths. While this has been the case for a number of years, the structure and grading of the exams have undergone extensive changes recently. This has resulted in many parents, educators, and students experiencing greater stress.

Fortunately, many professional tutors have experience in helping students prepare for the newly restructured exams. First Tutors can help you connect with a tutor in the Hove area who has experience in helping students prepare for the new GCSEs and A levels.
