The new academic year has started and many parents are now thinking about tuition and are asking the following questions:
What benefits are there to having private tuition?
There are a lot of benefits as independent studies have shown that those children who have access to private tuition on a regular basis, consistently score higher in exams in comparison to their peers.
What experience and qualifications should I be looking for when hiring a tutor?
When hiring a private tutor you should ensure they are suitably qualified and have relevant experience in teaching or tutoring. Additionally, don’t be shy to ask to see a DBS check as all reputable tutors should have one. At Harrogate tutors we do all of these checks for you as well as constantly monitor the performance of our team so you can be confident in the tutors we supply.
How much does it cost?
The old cliché of you get what you pay for often applies to tutoring. There are inexperienced sole tutors out there offering lessons as well as group tuition, with prices as low as £20 per hour. If you do opt for one of these group sessions ensure you know the tutor to child ratio as if there is 6 students to one tutor over the course of an hour lesson, each student will only receive 10 minutes contact time which isn’t great value at £20. At Harrogate Tutors we don’t supply inexperienced tutors or offer group lessons as we don’t believe either are very effective in helping our students to progress and achieve better results in school; therefore we only offer private one to one tuition with experienced tutors and our prices reflect this. We charge £30 an hour for all subjects and levels up to and including GCSE. At A level we charge £35 to reflect the additional preparation work required at this level.
