Masters: Mmath(combined bsc and masters) (2010)
try and do too much too quickly. When students find maths difficult it is more often than not that they have missed a small amount of understanding along the way that has made the next few steps difficult. The first thing I generally try to do is to go back to easier questions to confirm where the student is more or less confident and patch up any gaps in understanding. This makes it much easier...

Masters: Physics with Philosophy (2013)
I believe that every student has a different method of learning. I have tutored to all ages, Key Stage 3 to Undergraduates in Maths and Sciences, and even basic IT to pensioners. I like to build a rapport with students and believe in teaching the basics but then encouraging students to try to solve problems independently with only as much guidance as they need. The key to success in any area isn't to be taught...


Doctorate: Zoology (2005)
leave the students with the notes made, normally including lots of diagrams, and I don't tend to set them homework although I can do if requested.

PGCE: PGCE Secondary & A level Maths (2011)
their confidence to achieve more than what they initially targeted to achieve. Tutoring is about providing personalised teaching and learning. Each student learns differently and it is the tutor's responsibility to tailor the style of teaching to how a student learns.

Students are encouraged to engage questions they don't quite understand but are willing to try - I...

There are about 125,000 students in Leeds attending approximately 300 area schools. Those who wish to attend university or to have the best opportunities when entering the workforce upon graduation may consider a private tutor.

Pupils have the choice of working with their personal tutor online in a secure virtual learning environment or in person.

Primary School Tutors in Leeds

First Tutors works with experienced tutors who understand the importance of helping children develop a strong academic foundation. This is especially critical during the highly formative years associated with Key Stages 1 and 2. It is during this time that children are introduced to the fundamental numeracy and literacy concepts that will guide their development throughout their academic careers and beyond.

There are many excellent primary schools in the Leeds area, including:

Regardless of the primary school your child attends, private tuition provides students with the key advantages of expert academic guidance and support. This can play a major role in helping students achieve their academic potential.

As your child reaches the end of their Year 6 studies, it is important to make sure they have a solid foundation in not only their core academic subjects, but also in general study skills, test-taking strategies, and time management techniques. These skills are vital for success in a broad range of academic settings, and all can be addressed by your child's personal tutor. By taking the time to get to know your child, it is possible for the tutor to customise tuition strategies to meet their needs.

Once pupils enter Year 7, they often experience a higher level of academic pressure due to the upcoming GCSEs and A levels. While these two exams have been in use for years, they have both recently undergone structural changes. Now, more than ever, pupils can benefit from working independently with a private tutor who is well versed in the changes to the GCSEs and A levels.

GCSE results are vitally important for all pupils who wish to have the greatest level of flexibility in their ongoing academic pursuits. Students will need to begin focusing their attention in specific areas. Working with a subject area expert in private tutoring sessions can make this process easier. In addition to working with your child on their specific subject area focus, a private tutor can also help your child work through any test-taking anxiety they may be experiencing as they approach the testing deadline.
