What Are the Benefits of GCSE English Tuition?

We strongly believe in helping every child realise their full potential so they can climb the ladder to success. By offering tailored GCSE English tuition, we can help your child achieve:


  • The English GCSE grades they deserve. Focusing on areas where your child is lacking knowledge and the parts of the curriculum they find most challenging, we can help them boost their grades.
  • A confident attitude. Classroom environments can be intimidating. Through tailored tuition in a small group, our classes are designed to build self-belief in English as well as improving general confidence.
  • Better independent and critical thinking. All tutoring is carefully aligned with each pupil’s goals, helping them develop the skills to work effectively at GCSE level.
  • Improved focus. Studying in small groups creates a supportive, engaging environment that helps your child learn. They will develop better concentration and focus as they work towards their GCSEs in a structured way.

  3. Initial meeting. Your child will meet their tutor to discuss their objectives and get to know them better, ensuring they feel comfortable and happy.
  4. Tutoring begins. A weekly 70-minute sessions where your child will work towards GCSE English success.

How do I know my child needs a private English tutor?
They are feeling stressed or worried; they are not meeting their full potential; they’re not progressing as fast they are with other subjects; there are gaps in their knowledge, or they’re disappointed with their English grade after a recent end of term assessment. They’ve moved up a set are not coping with the new topics; the pace of the lesson (quicker) and previous topics are missing because they joined the set later in the year.
What exam syllabuses do English tutors cover?
GCSEs, SATs and 11+.
How do I know my child is ready for English tutoring?
They avoid doing their homework, getting into trouble at school in their English class, they are looking slightly withdrawn or confused by what they are supposed to be doing in class.  However, to fully understand whether they need a tutor, an Initial Consultation, which looks at their strengths and weaknesses in English from basic literacy skills to GCSE questions (if appropriate) will certainly flag up any problem areas.

My son joined Leeds Tuition Centre while he was in Year 6. Our main concerns were his English scores at school were not good and he didn’t have the motivation to do school work. Since joining “Leeds Tuition Centre” there is are remarkable changes with his English work and overall attitude to school work. My son scored very high marks in Year 6 SATs (over 110) in each subject. My son has continued to like attending the centre and now this is the third year (he is in Year 8). As parents we love the honest unbiased feedback we get from the teachers, the fact that kids feel challenged to do better and we will continue to support our son in attending Leeds Tuition Centre.
