Oxford Teachers and Oxford Tutoring

The city of Oxford is situated in the centre of the county of Oxfordshire. The population of the city itself is only about 170,000. However, the larger county area has a population of roughly 683,000 people. The county serves more than 110,000 students in about 350 schools. The city is perhaps most well known for being the home of the oldest university in an English-speaking country—the University of Oxford.

specific piece of coursework or a dissertation. My approach is to create an encouraging, supportive environment for those who I teach. I ensure that every lesson is fitted to the unique needs of each student, and employ psychological learning style profiles and lesson planning in order to do so. Tutees should look forward to sessions and so I focus strongly on interactive tutoring and encouraging lateral thinking - there is very little talking 'at' tutees...

- before the class moves on. Private tutoring is an excellent way to identify things that the student has been taught, but has not had the chance to properly understand. I have two favourite techniques for this. 1) Asking "why is this the answer?" The classroom does not usually provide sufficient time for this. But in a private tutorial, we can get into the true concepts behind the material - usually making the material a...

My flexible approach reflects an understanding tutors need to work with each client as an individual.

Primary School Tutors in Oxford

First Tutors understands just how important it is to give your child the best academic start possible. It is during Key Stages 1 and 2 that students begin to integrate the building blocks for all the numeracy and literacy skills to come. During these pivotal years, your child will be constantly facing new and challenging information. Without mastering these skills during this time, many children may struggle into their university years and even as they move into careers.

Private tuition provides an unparalleled level of academic support and guidance from a professional tutor, which can significantly improve your child's ability to reach their academic potential. When working with a private tutor, your child is the only focus. This means a tutor can really get to know your child and discover their unique learning style, academic gifts, and learning challenges. The tutor can then use this information to create a unique learning plan specifically for your child to help them move through courses more effectively.

No matter which Oxford-area primary school your child attends, you will likely notice they are facing an increased amount of pressure as they get closer to the end of Year 6. This can show up as an unusual level of difficulty with a particular subject area. It could also become apparent that the pupil's general study skills need to be improved. These skills become increasingly important during a student's secondary years. This is something a personal tutor can help with. Your child's private tutor can work with them to improve general study skills, time management, and organisational skills, as well as help them develop greater test-taking confidence with the introduction of new testing strategies.

Whether your child will be entering a grammar school or other secondary school, the main focus will rapidly become preparing for their GCSEs and A levels. These tests are important because the results can directly impact future academic opportunities. This understandably causes added stress for many students. Additionally, these exams have become even more stressful over the past few years because they have undergone significant structural changes.

Working with a professional tutor can decrease the stress associated with the exams by giving your child a greater number of opportunities to practice and prepare. A tutor with experience in the new testing formats also has greater insight into the best methods for preparing effectively for your child's upcoming GCSEs or A levels.
