First Tutors connects the parents of pupils in York with highly qualified private tutors. You or your child have the option of meeting with a personal tutor in a secure online environment or in person at your home or a nearby public space, such as a cafe, school campus, park, or library. Choosing the right venue for your private tutoring sessions is largely a matter of determining what fits best for your schedule and the pupil's learning needs.

Private tutoring sessions can be beneficial for students of all ages and academic levels. Most people intuitively understand the structure of modern academic settings is not conducive to learning for all pupils. After all, there is only one teacher who must instil competency, if not mastery, in an entire classroom of students. While this is certainly the best way to educate a large number of students at once, it is not necessarily the way to offer the best education to all students.

When teaching a class of pupils, the instructor is forced to constantly move forward regardless of how well individual students have integrated the new concepts. One of the most significant advantages of private tutoring is the individualised attention a pupil is able to receive from the tutor. Your child's professional tutor can take the time to discover where your child is struggling, where they are not being challenged enough, their unique learning style, and their interests. This makes it far easier for your child's tutor to create a unique plan of learning that will more effectively engage with and meet the needs of your child.

It's during the primary school years that your child will be introduced to the fundamental concepts that form the basis for all future numeracy and literacy studies. When children fail to master these concepts during primary school, they can often experience ongoing academic frustration and difficulties throughout the rest of their education and even into their years in the workforce.

As students near the end of their primary school years, it's a good time to have someone work with them on other key academic skills that can be difficult for children to master independently. For example, critical reading, independent study, time management, organisation, and testing strategies are all powerful tools that can benefit your child regardless of the subject area they are learning. Working with a personal tutor in these areas can help improve your child's academic performance throughout all coursework.

As your child transitions into secondary school, they may experience a heightened level of anxiety. In part this is due to entering a new learning environment and having a greater level of expectations and personal responsibility. Working with an experienced personal tutor can make this transition easier for your child to navigate successfully.

Your child will begin preparing for their GCSEs and A levels almost as soon as they enter a secondary school. While this has been the case for years, the exams have recently undergone significant structural changes that have left many parents, teachers, and students feeling unsettled. Giving your child the opportunity to work with a personal tutor who has experience with the new exams can give them the confidence they need to achieve their best possible scores.
