No matter which school your child attends, investing in private tuition provides your child with a phenomenal resource that can make a significant difference in their academic performance and level of subject area mastery. When your child is in a typical classroom, they are surrounded by many other students and only one teacher. During a private tutoring session, a student can benefit from a one-on-one learning environment that can be completely customised to their academic needs and learning interests. Your child's private tutor has the opportunity to get to know your child and to discover their unique learning profile, curating learning resources designed specifically to engage and inspire.

As your child moves into the end of Year 6, it is a good idea to spend a little extra time focusing on key skills that can be applied across the breadth of subject areas they will be exposed to in their secondary studies. For example, tutoring sessions could focus on critical thinking skills, essay writing, study skills, testing techniques, and time management strategies. All of these are areas which are typically taken for granted but which can be improved upon with assistance. They can then be applied across disciplines to maximise learning potential. Additionally, a private tutor can help prepare your child for the transition from a primary to a secondary learning environment.

As your child begins their secondary studies in Year 7, they will no doubt begin to think more about their upcoming GCSEs and A levels. These are critical tests in your child's academic career, and preparation for them should begin immediately. First Tutors can help you connect with a tutor who is experienced with the new structure of these exams and can help your child prepare for them most effectively.

No matter which Sheffield secondary school your child attends, the scores they receive on their GCSEs and A levels are important. These grades have a direct bearing on the academic choices that will be available to your child during the rest of their time in school. Many courses are only available to pupils who meet certain criteria, so it is important that the exams are approached with maximum effort. Working with a professional tutor can help your child master their areas of study and increase their testing confidence.
