WHY ME?

Why choose me as your home tutor?

  • Home education gives children who are written off by the school system an opportunity to thrive and achieve and have a happy experience with learning.
  • Many parents find that their family life is much happier when school stresses are removed and their children revert to being ‘their normal selves' again.
  • Being out of school and in contact with real life develops many study/motivational/life skills in home-educated children, which some universities recognise as an advantage.
  • ​Children begin to take charge of their own lives and their own learning, which develops a sense of responsibility and maturity that often exceeds their school peers.
  • In London alone, 43% of students use a private tutor, so something must be working, right? With UK class sizes at their largest of recent years, teachers often don’t have as much time to spend with students on an individual basis as they once did. 
  • Using a private tutor can prove invaluable as it not only assures that a student is covering the relevant course work, but it also makes certain that their approach to course work is correct.
  • A good tutor will take the time to create a study plan for each individual student to ensure that they receive a personalised service.
  • With private tuition, students are given one to one attention throughout the duration of their lessons, which enables them to ask any questions and focus on specific areas of a subject that they may need help with.
  • Many students find that private tuition helps improve their coursework in class. As students become more confident in a subject, their motivation to do well increases.
  • This can often lead to an overall improvement in their grades. What’s more, some of the techniques that they learn from their tutor can also be transferred to other subjects.
  • School courses can often move quickly and many students don’t grasp every aspect of a topic before it’s time to move on.
  • With private tuition, students are given the opportunity to concentrate on those topics that they don’t fully understand, because without the basics, learning gets more and more difficult as time goes on.
  • ​Using a private tutor can often give students a much needed confidence boost. Due to the ‘one to one’ nature of private tuition, tutors can quickly identify which areas a student may need improvement in – something that students may not be able to identify on their own. 
  • Sometimes all it takes to instill a little confidence in a student is to have a tutor identify what they are doing correctly and suggest how they may improve in the areas they are falling short in.
  • For some students, working within the confines of a 9 to 5 school day doesn’t always inspire their maximum learning potential.
  • Some students, who study creative subjects, find that they work best at certain times during the day. Using a private tutor enables students to schedule lessons when it suits them.  
  • ​For students, one of the biggest challenges of their school career is managing their time effectively. They may have several other interests outside of school and balancing each of them appropriately can often be difficult.
  • A good tutor will be able to help students come up with their own study schedules and recommend, when, where and how to study.
 
"Being an outstanding tutor is an art form"

"Every child matters"
This logo is repeatedly used by schools and OFSTED however, what they really mean is "every childs grade matters".

Schools are too political they no longer support their teachers or have the staffing numbers to adequately support SEND Children, they are only concerned about budgets and grades. 

The number of teachers leaving the profession has increased by 11%.

More secondary school classes are being taught by teachers without a relevant post-A-level qualification in their subject.

Some local Grammar schools in Kent have hired past A'Level students to teach GCSE Physics when they have no qualifications at all.

"Grammar schools in Kent are using ALevel students as they cannot find enough Science Teachers."

​Given that a further 800,000 pupils are anticipated in the next decade, “if there isn’t a crisis now, there clearly will be in the future”.

"The government are now enticing people to become teachers with £26,000 bursaries and a further £5000 if they stay on at a state school for 3 years and a further £5,000 if they stay on for another 3 years! This isnt ensuring quality just quantitiy" LAT

"If you want excellent lessons for your child, then the answer is simple, hire Lisa. I did".     Mrs. Carney
