Applying to university is a daunting time – whether you’re a parent or a student. A time when A-Level students are striving for success, it can be terrifying to think that you might not get the grades that you require to get into university. With so many of the universities in the UK having high entry requirements that seem out of reach, there are many benefits that come with opting for private A-Level tuition.
An activity that works seamlessly alongside education taught in school, it gives students that extra helping hand that they require during this stressful time. There to help with whatever subject that they need, they can go into the university application process feeling more confident and ready to succeed.
So many students across the UK are turning to private A-Level tuition. Helping them to pass their exams, it’s a worthy investment in the long term. And even though it might seem like an expensive extra cost, the quality of tuition that you receive is unlike anything that’s taught in schools.
Filling Gaps in Knowledge
Although school teaches you the basics of subjects, sometimes, students need that extra assistance. Filling gaps in knowledge, a private tutor will ensure that students are fully prepared for exams.
Working with them individually, more time is spent on areas that they are not confident in. Taking the time to align the student’s weaknesses with their strengths, the understanding that private tutors have is unparalleled. Targeting the subjects and topics that you need assistance with, the process is done in a way that takes the pressure off of students.
A Personalised Education
There have been numerous articles over the years stating that schools are failing to prepare their pupils for the demands that come with university. Offering a one-size-fits-all solution to education, this way of learning isn’t suited to everyone – which is where private tuition comes in. Getting to know each student individually, private tutors develop a bond with students.
Giving each student their full attention and expert guidance, it’s a gentle push that many need in order to thrive.
Preparation for University
University is a whole other ballgame to school. A time that’s filled with essays, coursework and exams, many don’t feel fully prepared for it – which results in them struggling when they are an undergraduate. In school, students rarely have to write essays that are thousands of words long – making them feel overwhelmed when they go to university.
With private tuition, they will guide you through this so that you’re not going into university feeling as though you’re in the dark.
What to Look Out For When Choosing An A-Level Tuition Centre
If you think that private tuition for your A-Levels is the right way to go, it’s good to know what you should look out for when selecting a tuition centre. During this process, you should consider the following:
- How many tutors they have: if it’s a small tuition centre, you want to ensure that the tutors haven’t taken on a large number of students.
- Their skills and qualifications: this is essential. You want to make sure that they are fully qualified and that they have passed the appropriate exams in order to teach you/your child.
- Their teaching ability: alongside their qualifications and skills, it’s a good idea to read reviews on the website to ensure that they have an excellent teaching ability.
- How much they charge: as this varies tutor to tutor, you should pay attention to what their rates are so that you can compare them more easily.
- A tutors personality: do they seem friendly? Are they enthusiastic about what they do?
- Their timetable: how often they will see a student, how long each session lasts, etc.
