English Tutor Leeds
If it’s English tuition that you’re looking for, we carry out initial in-depth educational assessments to establish the particular areas your child may be having trouble with. The 1 hour – 80 minute consultation is relaxed, with no silences or test environments. Your child is encouraged to relax and complete simple written and verbal comprehensions, as well as English related questions.
We are able to offer and meet the demand for Early Reading up to and including English GCSE. We guarantee that your son/daughter will be taught by a fully qualified and classroom based experienced teacher and have qualified teacher status.
Reading is the foundation for all subjects and as such we are always writing about it, talking about it and ensuring that students are taught well so they can make necessary progress through their academic career. We start with phonics, helping students to breakdown words with the relevant sounds; I use the ‘magic thumb’ technique. You’ll be amazed how youngsters, regardless of age, love this technique. It helps them breakdown the word and then blend it together so they can read it successfully. Those nightly reading sessions before bed take on a whole new meaning of mother or father and child reading time. Children are now engaged and feel more confident to tackle words that they may have struggled with before and go to sleep, happy and pleased with their success.

When Ibrahim started tuition he lacked confidence and was struggling in school. Over a period of time at Leeds Tuition Centre Ibrahim dramatically improved.
Joanna focused on his weaknesses and gave him strucutre. He is now able to plan his work effectively and is confident in and out of school. We also put his younger brother Hisham into tuition as well and noticed the same improvement.
Both our sons now have a good foundation to work from. We would highly recommend Leeds Tuition Centre to any parent looking to improve their child’s education.

English Tuition FAQs
How do I know my child needs an English tutor?
The most common misconception about English is that if a child can read, they are doing well in English. I wish this was true. It is comprehension that is the key to a child’s developing in English – in other words do they understand what they have read. Are they able to discuss why a character behaves the way they do? Are they able to skim and scan a text to retrieve the necessary information? Are they then able to put all that gathered information into coherent and accurate sentences? This is just for reading! What about spelling? What about different styles of writing that require appropriate techniques to show they are writing a letter, a speech, a story/narrative, a playscript, a poem etc – do they know the techniques and are they able to write consistently good quality work with those techniques in them?
What does an English tutor do?
A good English tutor will be a qualified English teacher. They will have an in-depth subject knowledge on grammar, spelling, reading, comprehension and writing skills and they will know how to deliver that information so that your child is able to understand and progress. English is one of those subjects, especially when working on Comprehension and Writing where consistent and constant application of thought and techniques is vital. How a child engages with a text to show understanding is vital because all too often their misreading of what is happening and why can produce answers that relate nothing to the question being asked. Equally, if they are supposed to be writing a descriptive piece, or an article and they use an inappropriate tone or incorrect techniques that you would normally expect to see, then they will have failed to reproduce a piece of writing that shows they understand and are able to apply them to that style of writing.
How much is an English tutor per hour?
Anywhere from £29.50-50 per hour by an experienced, qualified English Teacher who has experience teaching in the classroom and has Qualified Teacher Status.
