Qualified teachers usually start from £30 per hour, and examiners usually start from £35 per hour. Factors that influence price can include a tutor's qualifications, level of experience and the level of tutoring needed. It's never too early to start tutoring! The earlier in the academic year, the better. This can help increase the student's confidence early on. Getting a tutor before your mock exams can also be a great time to get started. Some students look for a tutor around spring term to help with revision and intensive exam prep for their end of years or final Common Entrance (13+) exams. The number and frequency of lessons depends on the student. We would recommend weekly lessons to help build knowledge and understanding. In the run up to mocks or final exams, two lessons a week may be more beneficial to give you extra support. Tutoring can certainly help with exam prep. A tutor can help you learn and revise subject knowledge and improve your exam technique. They can identify your strengths and weaknesses to help with targeted, effective revision. A tutor can help you with revision and getting a revision plan in place, to suit your desired grade. They can also help you build a revision timetable to make the most of the time that you have.
