Private Tutors for Science

We introduce science private tutors for all academic levels including 13+, GCSE, AS and A Level, IB and University examinations and coursework.

Every science private tutor we introduce has a thorough understanding of their main science subject (most likely physics, biology or chemistry). Many can successfully teach a combination. The tutors are familiar with the major school entrance assessments and national exam boards, and families trust their ability to help students score highly on each paper.

We only recommend tutors who have a first class academic background and a proven track record as a private tutor. To ensure we introduce the right science tutor for your child, we take the time to understand you son or daughter’s precise requirements as well as their personality and learning style. The first tutorial will be a gentle assessment, to identify specific areas that require extra support. This bespoke service will ensure your child connects quickly with their science tutor, which will in turn build their confidence and drive them to even higher academic attainment.

Finding a science tutor for your child with Simply Learning Tuition is easy. To get started, please contact one of our tuition consultants or use our online enquiry form further down this page.

Common Entrance Science Tuition

Physics, Biology and Chemistry are a key part of the common entrance paper and parents often ask us to introduce a single tutor to guide their son or daughter through their Independent Schools Examination Board (ISEB) common entrance curriculum. Many tutors who are science generalists can do this, but in some cases we may instead recommend one tutor for each of physics, biology and chemistry. In all cases, the common entrance tutor(s) we introduce will be familiar with the entrance requirements for all of the leading schools, including Eton, Harrow, Westminster, St Paul’s, Dulwich and Winchester.

Successful preparation for Common Entrance ISEB examinations requires a thorough understanding of the Common Entrance science mark scheme. We only recommend Common Entrance science tutors who are able to provide this. They will give lessons in exam technique and provide detailed feedback on past papers – all delivered in a style and at a pace perfectly suited to your son or daughter.

GCSE Science Tuition

At GCSE (or IGCSE) level, science can be taught as individual tripos, or as a combined course. Whatever pathway your son or daughter is following, Simply Learning Tuition will introduce a GCSE science tutor who is able to bring out the best in his or her academic performance. Because our private tutor matching process is entirely bespoke, your child will receive science tuition from that is tailored to suit their specific needs, pace and style of learning.

We will recommend a GCSE or IGCSE science private tutor who will thoroughly engage your child; developing their knowledge base and improving their confidence. As a result he or she will complete their coursework and enter the exam hall with increased confidence and ability. We work with tutors who make science fun, dynamic and varied – ensuring that your child reaches their full potential and hopefully, sets the stage for continued study at A-Level or IB.

A Level Science Tuition

Many students find the transition from GCSE to A Level science to be surprisingly daunting. Even with a solid foundation in GCSE or IGCSE science, the breadth and depth of A Level science can cause even the brightest student to come unstuck.

We believe that the key to successful A Level science tuition is for students to adapt a rigorous and structured approach to revision that will be based heavily on understanding and answering exam questions. We only recommend private tutors who are familiar with the requirements of the A Level exam boards, and who are able to provide clear and detailed feedback that is in line with the mark scheme your child will be following.

Pre-U Science Tuition

We offer introductions to expert Pre-U science tutors who will help your child both with subject knowledge, but also to develop independent study. The Pre U science tutors we introduce fully understand the syllabus requirements, which is vital whether your child is aiming for a Pass (P2), a Merit (M2) or Distinction (D2).

For even the brightest students, the pressure of taking one or several Pre-U courses in the Sixth Form, alongside A Levels, means that extra help is often essential. Rather than waiting until the last minute, we recommend that private tutors are engaged at the outset, to help plan workloads and make a strategy to prevent the student becoming overwhelmed. Tuition can then be stepped up if there is a particular problem area.

(IB) International Baccalaureate Science Tuition

Engaging an experienced International Baccalaureate science tutor is fraught with challenges; principally because the number of good IB science tutors is limited. Many tutors who teach A Level science will claim to be able to teach the IB, but in fact it is a very different syllabus, with a fundamentally different mark scheme and assessment methodology. Whereas the A Level focuses on depth, the IB considers breadth and independent thinking.

At Simply Learning Tuition we introduce science private tutors who really understand the requirements of the IB. All are thoroughly vetted and will have a high 2.1 or 1st class degree in a science subject. Many will be Post Graduate scientists. If your child has chosen to study IB science as a prerequisite for a university course, such as physics, engineering or astronomy it is likely that they will have to score a 6 or 7 in their IB science exams to gain their university place.

We will also be able to introduce an experience International Baccalaureate science private tutor if your child is studying science as part of the Middle Years Programme (MYP).
