Secondary English Tutors in Leeds

If your child requires Secondary English tuition, either for their English GCSE or to ensure they’re getting the most out of their true academic potential, you’re in the right place. At Leeds Tuition Centre, we carry out an initial in-depth educational assessment to establish the particular areas your child may be having trouble within their English studies. This 30 minutes to 1 hour consultation is relaxed, with no silences or test environments. Your child is encouraged to relax and complete written and/or verbal comprehensions, as well as English related questions.

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They avoid doing their homework, getting into trouble at school in their English class, they are looking slightly withdrawn or confused by what they are supposed to be doing in class.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.

QuoteMy daughter Aneka had been preparing for her GCSE’s, it had become apparent that she required additional support with her Maths, English & Science.  We contacted the Leeds Tuition Centre where we received a warm welcome from Joanna & John. We had a one to one in depth discussion around Aneka’s learning requirements & key areas she needed support with. Joanna, Demitris & Bongani have all helped Aneka to improve her grades significantly and made her feel much more confident in her own abilities.

They all have an exceptional ability to break down complex mathematical, Scientific & English concepts into simple, easy-to-understand steps, which was invaluable in helping Aneka to understand the various concepts. Their patience and dedication to her success was evident in every session. Additionally, they always made sure to check in with Aneka to ensure that she understood the material and she was progressing in the right direction.

Overall, Joanna, Demitris & Bongani are outstanding tutors who always go above and beyond to help students succeed. I would highly recommend Leeds Tutor Centre to any student who is looking to improve their Maths, Science & English skills to achieve their full potential
