English private tuition for students from primary up to pre-university stage is becoming more and more popular.

With a weakness in English possibly affecting all other subjects, parents are keen to help their children get an early grasp of English reading and writing to ensure that this does not negatively affect their understanding in other important subjects.

Parents are aware that a weakness in English writing technique can ultimately affect a child’s attainment in examinations. Private English tutors are often engaged to help the student fully understand the concepts and communicate the answers in the writing style and language that will help them attain better marks in examinations.

Parents may also seek an English tutor due to their child having special educational needs that affect their learning in this subject. In cases like this, we have a number of specialist SEN private tutors that can assist students with needs such as dyslexia or dysgraphia.

However, private tuition in English is mostly used to build the student’s confidence in the subject. Teachers, parents or guardian’s may have noticed weaknesses in reading or writing and may realise that this could be overcome with personalised one-to-one English support. For other students, the English private tutor is needed as the student approaches a major examination eg 11+, ISEB,  SATS, GCSE or A-levels.

From primary through to secondary level, students in the UK are expected to study English language and develop their fluency in writing, reading and comprehension skills as well as their speaking and listening skills.
