Months of school closures have caused huge disruption and pressure on students. Schools are now encouraged by exam boards to hold formal mock exams for years 11 and 13. The results are likely to be used as evidence to support teacher-led grades. In this article we provide 5 tips to boost GCSE and A-Level mock exam performance.
Private Tutors for A Level
The A Level years can be particularly tricky for students, navigating academic pressures whilst making decisions about their future. The tutors we recommend at A-Level are all natural mentors, with the teaching experience to provide tailored lessons to reduce the pressure on your child and increase their attainment.
Sophie Taylor Barthorpe, our Director of Tuition, explains how a private tutor helps students prepare effectively for the A Level examinations.
A Level and AS Level tuition can take place online, in person in London or live in. We can also introduce tutors for A-Level home schooling, including registering your child for their exams. If they need it, your child can have a tutor for each of their A-Level subjects. We keep in touch with you to hear how your child is doing and can increase or decrease tuition accordingly, depending on progress in each subject.
Every A Level tutor that we introduce will have an exemplary academic record, usually with a degree or postgraduate degree in the A Level subject that they tutor, plus experience with your child’s exam board and teaching effective exam technique.
We recommend working with A-Level tutors with a wealth of proven previous experience teaching at A-Level. They should have experience with your child’s exam board. For subjects like English and History, they’ll need to be familiar with the particular set texts and areas of History.

"I would not hesitate to recommend Ellie. She is extremely patient, very helpful and organised and really knows her stuff. She will find a way for you to understand something even if she has to explain it in 100 different ways...I could not have found a better tutor".
