While the city itself has a relatively small population, it is part of the larger metropolitan area of South Hampshire, or Solent City, which has a population of more than 855,000. Fortunately for parents living in Southampton, the school system is quite navigable, with about 80 individual schools serving approximately 33,000 students. First Tutors provides parents and students with a central platform to connect with highly qualified private tutors in the Southampton area.

Pupils of all ages and abilities can benefit from the experienced academic guidance and support of a personal tutor. As anyone who has ever been in a classroom can attest, schools are not always designed to provide individualised learning environments. It is nearly impossible for a classroom teacher to give each student the individual attention necessary to allow them to reach their full academic potential. In contrast, a professional tutor only works with one pupil at a time, which ensures your child will have their undivided attention throughout their tutoring sessions. This gives the tutor and pupil an opportunity to get to know one another, allowing the tutor to discover your child's academic strengths, areas that need focus, and preferred learning style. This information can then be put together to create a programme of study as unique as the student the tutor will be working with.

Primary School Tutors in Southampton

Far too often, parents only consider retaining the services of a personal tutor when their child begins struggling in school. However, your child can benefit from working with a professional tutor from the very first day of primary school regardless of the school they attend.

Some of the highest ranking primary schools in Southampton include:

Even pupils attending the very best primary schools can benefit from one-to-one instructional time. First Tutors understands just how crucial the first years of primary school are for the development of numeracy and literacy skills. These are the fundamental building blocks on which the rest of your child's academic career will be based. If students fail to truly integrate these concepts during their primary school years, they may struggle significantly when they enter secondary school.

Private tuition provides your child with a substantial advantage in the level of academic support and guidance they will receive during this time. Working independently with a private tutor can also help them during the later years of primary school when they need to begin preparing for the transition into a secondary school setting. It is during Year 6 that a student can most benefit from working with a personal tutor to refine and elevate personal study skills, time management strategies, testing confidence, and organisational skills. The gap that occurs just before Year 7 can be utilised to enhance these skills, which can be applied in all subject areas going forward.

Regardless of which secondary school your child attends, they will begin to notice an increase in the amount of material they are expected to learn as they progress through their studies. This is due in large part to the GCSEs and A levels that students must eventually face. While the exams have been in use for some time, they have recently undergone drastic changes that have rippled across the curriculum and instructional methodologies of most secondary schools. Working with a private tutor can give your child an advantage in navigating the new system and achieving their best possible results.

Although the tests themselves have changed, the importance placed upon the scores have not, and it is essential that your child prepare for them adequately. First Tutors can help you locate a Southampton tutor who can help your child reach their academic goals.
