Kent Tutor – Secondary School Tuition

Our specialist secondary school tutors can provide tuition in English, Maths and Science for children aged 11-18. Tutorials are normally held in one-hour sessions, but during SATS, GCSEs or coursework deadlines, most opt for two hours. Tuition can be provided on a one-one basis or as part of a small group in Tuition For You’s residence or even one-one in the comfort of your own home.

If appropriate or requested, the first session may be classed as an assessment and the tutor will be able to provide basic feedback on the skills they have seen during this time. The results will be analysed further and a formal written report will be sent home to parents within 3 business days. This will address the child’s skills and weaknesses and appropriate National Curriculum Levels or GCSE grades will be set, as well as SMART targets (Sustainable, measurable, accurate, realistic and timebound). The tutor will also be able to advise on the frequency and subject matter of future lessons.

Our tutors use the latest and most stimulating material available in their lessons. Books and resources are used from well-known publishers such as Nelson Thornes, Heinemann and CGP, which are age appropriate and closely follow the National Curriculum and examination bodies. All materials are provided during tutorials and homework will be set at appropriate intervals- normally on a weekly basis. Homework is not designed to be a chore, but a reinforcement of the day’s learning and an aid to increase self confidence- if a pupil can learn a topic in one evening, complete the homework the next and apply this newly found knowledge in the following lesson, the pupil will feel happy and motivated and looking forward to the next topic. In preparation for exams, homework will normally be mock papers, which are marked and assessed, and then worked through again in the following tutorial.

It is very important that pupils leave secondary school, confident and academically able, ready to face the challenges that lie ahead. Most colleges require Grade C or above in English and Maths and sometimes Science as well. Others require at least 5 GCSE grades A-C before allowing access to A-level or vocational courses. Tuition for you focuses on these grades and can provide essential booster lessons to enable your child to feel confident they will achieve the grade they need.

Tuition for You provides tuition for years 7-13; ensuring pupils are achieving the required level and fulfilling their potential at the end of each year. Most pupils will enter secondary school at National Curriculum level 4 and Government targets state that this should have progressed to Level 6 by year 9 and then to a grade C or above by the end of year 11. If you feel your child will not be able to meet these targets, it is advisable to seek help as soon as possible- for example, as soon as the GCSE course begins in year 10, if you feel their SATS results in year 9 will disadvantage them.
