  • Advice for students

    Dr Sandip A-level Applied Science Tutor (Rochester) Picture
    Learning is a lifelong process. Learn to gain knowledge where high grade should be the output of this process. Learning a subject just to achieve high grade wouldn't help you in longer run.

  • Tenses In French!

    Rachel Ger GCSE French Tutor (North West London) Picture
    English students always seem to struggle with the French Grammar. They can't seem to understand the difference between the perfect and imperfect tense. The conditional is confusing and as soon as they hear of the 'subjonctive' they decide to drop French! I believe that if the tenses are...

  • Approaching 11+ tuition

    LHanna 11+ exam Tutor (North London) Picture
    For me, the first step in private tuition is to understand the student’s needs. This may be as simple as revision of a particular academic topic, but often I find there is a personal concern that needs to be acknowledged first and that may be preventing progress in learning – whether...
