Which topics can tutors teach for GCSE English?

How to choose an English GCSE tutor

At Simply Learning Tuition, we represent only the most experienced and skilled tutors for GCSE English Language and Literature. In our experience, finding the right personality fit between student and tutor is just as important as working with the most academically qualified teacher.

We know all of the tutors we work with personally, and we always make a personal match between tutor and pupil. As well as ensuring the child enjoys their lessons and discovers a love for the subject, this typically leads to outstanding outcomes in their final GCSE examinations.

When to start tutoring for GCSE English

An early intervention is always the best policy – last-minute cramming is scientifically proven to be ineffective, so we recommend that students begin working with a tutor as soon as they notice they are struggling with any of the curriculum. Working with an experienced tutor ensures that the student does not fall behind the course, and usually leads to a virtuous circle where their confidence and classwork improve in tandem.

Ideally, students would undertake a regular course of GCSE English tuition throughout the duration of their GCSE studies in school. They can consolidate their knowledge, re-visit any difficult topics covered in the week’s lessons, and eventually master the syllabus.

It is also common for students to have a targeted course of exam preparation in the months before their final GCSEs. A comparatively small number of sessions focused on revision and exam technique can frequently make a significant difference to students’ final grades.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your child’s requirements or book an GCSE English tutor.

  • "I just got my grades and I got an A* for English. Thank you so much for all your help. I couldn’t have done it without you".

    Miss. H, IGCSE English Literature Tuition

  • "RW is a fantastic tutor for my son. She is able to relate to him easily, while keeping him engaged and serious about doing English. She has just begun working with Noam so it's too early to assess what her impact will be. She has encouraged him so far to take this subject more seriously, to start reading more and to start on improving his study habits -a great start! I get along with her very well. She has helped me figure out the future path for Noam's education. I hope we can continue working with her until Noam gets to his exams, I'm sure she can help him achieve great success".
