Subjects available in Nottingham


Nottingham has nearly 120 schools serving about 48,000 students. First Tutors can help parents connect with experienced personal tutors in the Nottingham area. Pupils have the option of working with their tutor in person or in a secure online environment. While online tutoring can be easier to fit into a busy schedule, some children prefer working with their tutors in person. Fortunately, our private Nottingham-based tutors can also meet with your child in your home or at a local cafe, library, park, or other public location.

Primary School Tutors in Nottingham

First Tutors knows how important it is for your child to create a strong academic foundation and just how challenging it can be to maintain steady academic progress and interest. Pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2 are challenged daily with new academic concepts that are the fundamental building blocks for their numeracy and literacy skills. Knowing the basics in these areas is critical as they advance into secondary coursework, university, and a profession.

Private tuition allows your child access to a robust support system and academic guidance as they work through these formative years. A private tutor can work individually with your child and focus exactly on the topics and concepts that are most challenging. This is something most school teachers simply don't have the luxury of doing. Your child's experienced tutor can take the time to discover the student's academic strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles, which are necessary to craft a compelling and effective programme of study.

No matter what primary school your child attends, as they move into the end of Year 6, they will be expected to have mastered specific subject areas and to begin identifying what they want to focus on in their secondary studies. The pressure can be even greater for those students who wish to gain entrance into one of the nearby grammar schools. A private tutor can help provide guidance for the transition while assisting your child in preparation efforts for upcoming entrance exams.

Once your child begins Year 7, the pressure continues to build as pupils begin to understand the importance of their eventual GCSEs and A levels. For many years, these tests had remained largely unchanged. Over the past several years, however, the testing structure has evolved. Teachers are hard at work adapting to prepare their pupils for these revised tests, but working with a professional tutor who has experience with the new formats can provide a stronger edge for your student. This leads to confidence on exam day and may ultimately help your child achieve the results that get them closer to their academic goals.

No matter what Nottingham school your child attends, their GCSE grades are vitally important. A student's scores on the exam have a direct impact on what A levels will be made available to them. A personal tutor can work on individual areas of weakness or on general test strategies, depending on where they need the most help.

First Tutors makes it easy to find a highly qualified tutor with the experience necessary to evaluate your child's time management skills, test-taking strategies, critical thinking skills, revision techniques, and subject area mastery. A private tutor can also work with your child to address any general testing anxiety and provide sufficient practice to help them prepare for the A level examinations during Year 13.

Regardless of which university you or your child wishes to attend, First Tutors can help you select the perfect tutor to offer both support and guidance during the application and admissions process. Many potential university students are not aware that they can enlist the support of a private tutor during this critical time in their lives. However, a professional tutor can work directly with you or your child to write a compelling personal statement or prepare for admissions interviews.

Once selected for the university programme of choice, a personal tutor can then work with you or your child to set and achieve realistic academic goals. They can also help provide the structure needed to meet the tight deadlines associated with university coursework.

In addition to general support, home tuition is offered in a variety of specialised subject areas, including:

  • Anatomy
  • Biology
