What are the benefits of having an English tutor?

Improve and support English progression.  

One-to-one sessions focus on the specific needs of individual children. 

Within a class, your child can ask for help and get personal feedback whenever they need to.

Whether your child is falling behind, struggling with a specific area of study or would simply benefit from a boost, personal English tuition can support their progression and achievement.

Revise and prepare for GCSE, iGCSE and A-level examinations in English.

Working with an experienced expert English tutor can support children in exam preparation and teach revision skills and exam strategies.

Kim, the English Elephant English tutor, has extensive examiner and teaching experience – and a fabulous track record for success.

Avoid negative progression following long school holidays or throughout the duration of long courses of study.

Over long school holidays, such as the summer break, children can forget or lose some of the skills they have built throughout the year. This can be particularly detrimental for those who are already struggling or working towards examinations. Additionally, with children studying for English qualifications across two or three years, the importance of on-going and consistent revision has never been more significant. Regular one-to-one tuition, including holiday sessions if needed, can support children in maintaining their skills and developing further in an informal, enjoyable way. Thus, supporting continual progress.

Provide parents with the tools and understanding to support their child at home.

As the study of English becomes more in-depth, it can be difficult to offer the support at home that you may want to. Equally, understanding what examiners look for can be complex and confusing!

Parents can share in sessions if they choose, and feedback is always given at the end of every session, so that parents and children alike have a sound understanding of the path, purpose and progress of tuition.

Support the completion of homework tasks and projects.

Even as children are growing into young adults, they may sometimes need help to complete homework tasks. When struggling, it can be all too easy to give up – and, as busy working parents, it can be difficult to offer all of the help you may want to.  An English tutor can support children in the completion of homework tasks within English and English-related tasks.

Personalise learning to support and engage all learners – even the most reluctant.

Children learn best when they are engaged and understand the relevance of teaching to them. One-to-one English tuition can provide exactly what your child needs in both respects; thus, helping them enjoy learning and progress.
