Get the help of a private GCSE tutor
At GCSE level, students will choose their non-core subjects and the results at this stage of education will have a large bearing on the student’s future. From being able to study their chosen course at their preferred college, to forming part of the minimum requirement in future job applications, GCSE results help define career paths.
Therefore, it is very worthwhile to work hard for these exams and, for many students, the best way for them to optimize their results is to use a private GCSE tutor who will develop exam techniques and teach each subject in a greater level of detail.
The biggest difference between private tuition and school lessons is that students receive one-to-one focus, meaning that the lesson is geared specifically around the student and their progress. In school classrooms, other students can take up the teacher’s time, or even cause disruption, and the lessons can be less productive than private tuition. Tutors work with students to identify any areas that are challenging them and help them to progress in those areas.
How can a GCSE tutor help?
Students can find the transition up to GCSE level very demanding, with an increased workload and a large variety of subjects to learn. With the added pressure of knowing that the results of GCSE exams will have a big impact on their future, many students can benefit from the support of a specialised GCSE tutor.
At Tutortoo, we have expert tutors covering all core and non-core subjects, with experience working towards the requirements of different exam boards. Tutors will work closely with students to help prepare for the exams, as well as providing help with coursework. For many students, GCSE level coursework will be very different to the type of assessment formats they have worked on before, so the guidance of a tutor will ensure they are able to adapt and develop the necessary practices.
Focused exam preparation
One of the key aspects of performing well in exam conditions is to develop good exam techniques. Whilst some teachers will cover this in school, it is not something that there is a lot of time for when they are concentrating on completing the subject syllabus prior to exam time. Students that are able to develop strong exam techniques can improve their grades substantially, simply by understanding exactly how to present their answers and knowing what the examiners want them to demonstrate.
Expert private GCSE tutors at Tutortoo will work through past papers with students so that they become fully familiar with the different types of questioning and the key areas that tend to come up frequently in GCSE exams. Whether you are looking for a GCSE tutor to help in one subject or the full range of subjects, Tutortoo is here to help.
