In our experience, success in GCSE/IGCSE exams depends on a number of factors including tackling areas of weakness, understanding strengths, how to approach questions and how to maximise marks – essentially exam technique! By understanding your child’s learning style and specific requirements, we are able to introduce an expert GCSE tutor who will meet those needs with expert tuition.
Whether your child is at the start of Key Stage 4, or is in need of last-minute assistance as they revise for forthcoming exams, we’ll place a tutor who inspires and injects confidence.
GCSE/IGCSE Tuition can be delivered weekly over a longer term, or as a short-term intensive course to help with exam revision. After an initial assessment, the tutor will build knowledge of the subject and provide valuable assistance with time management and exam skills. By using a joined-up, holistic approach to homework, coursework and revision, the tutor will help the student achieve their desired goals.
Tutors are familiar with the GCSE/IGCSE exam criteria for AQA, OCR, EDEXCEL, SALTERS and a range of alternative exam boards. Additionally, tutors are able to provide assistance with an exhaustive range of subjects, including Maths, English and The Sciences.
Academic potential isn’t solely determined by a child’s talent. We firmly believe that attitude plays a key role, which is why we place GCSE tutors who subscribe to the Growth Mindset theory:
There are many supporters of the idea that successful learning comes down to attitude rather than talent – and the impact of a good teacher would seem to prove that the concept is valid. It could be argued of course that the process is blindingly obvious (no effort = no reward), and that it is setting up some false negatives (what about the child who is lower in their class and not used to, ‘winning’ but is equally bright). However, the growth mentality as outlined below (flow chart courtesy of GCSE Leadership) is definitely something that will could help develop a strong and resilient mind.
The GCSE tutor we recommend will challenge your child, move them beyond their comfort zone, and ensure that they develop a strong, resilient mindset.
The end result will be better exam results and a life-long love of learning which will help your child reach their full potential.
Testimonials for GCSE tutors introduced by Simply Learning Tuition:
“I would like to express my gratitude for the work and commitment that you and your colleagues at Simply Learning Tuition have shown to both of my children, Alex (age 17) and Lucy (age 20). As a parent, I know the importance of education. Having children who have not taken as much of a liking to school and needing the extra guidance, both educationally and in life mentoring, has shown me that there are helpful alternatives to traditional education. Both Alex and Lucy were below average students and needed a very disciplined and intense schedule to get them back on track. In Alex’s case, it was the lead up to his GCSE exams and for Lucy it was a redirection of effort after her A levels. In both cases I have been very impressed with your level of professionalism, the tutors you have introduced us to and the level of commitment that all of them have shown to myself and my children throughout” EC, Battersea
