Are personal tutors worth the money?

Education can often be bewildering for parents, with curriculum changes, tests, league tables and education jargon to try and understand. However good teachers are at explaining it all, it can be difficult to know how well your child is doing and whether using a personal tutor might help. As a parent, you want the best for your child, but you also want to make sure that your hard-earned cash is being used to the best effect.

How do I know if my child needs a personal tutor?

Learning needs differ, and knowing what these are for your child are key to deciding when and how to use a personal tutor. Foundations for the future are laid at primary school, and pupils who struggle with phonics, reading, writing or maths at this stage will face an uphill journey towards GCSEs. Extra help here can make all the difference later, allowing your child to master basic skills and flourish during secondary school.

What support does a personal tutor provide?

For others, some short term help is all that is needed – maybe support with a particular aspect of their GCSE or A level course. Every little helps, as they say, and with fierce competition for top university places, those extra few marks could make all the difference to final grades. The same is true of assessed essays and dissertations – careful editing and proof-reading really can make a difference.
