Private tutoring sessions can be scheduled throughout the week at a time that's most convenient for your schedule in a wide array of local settings, such as your home or a library, park, or cafe. The online learning platform is ideal for those families who have a packed schedule and cannot fit in any other commutes or in-person meetings.

A professional tutor in the Oxford area can help you or your child at any point in the learning process.

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.
