Many of the memories I forged at Tutor House have been carried with me, for it was formative not only in attaining the results to get to UCL but equally in furthering me as an academic.
For students affected by the grading systems surrounding the Covid-19 crisis, we offer a short retake two-month retake course. Starting in early September, this online course will focus heavily on revision and exam practice. Students will receive online lessons and weekly assessments from their tutor to ensure they are on track to attain their desired grade.
If you want to enjoy your gap year or don’t want to get learning right away, our short A-Level retake starts in the second half of the academic year. From January - June, students will be able to learn in small groups online with their tutor. You will receive monthly reports and mock exam support.
This course is perfect for students either taking their A-Levels as independent candidates for the first time, or those looking to ensure they get the top grade they deserve. All courses are taught by highly qualified tutors and all of the course content is taught in depth. There are monthly reports and assessments - to help guarantee success.
Our biology A-Level courses are taught by our highly qualified biology tutors (many of whom are former teachers) and all teaching takes place online via Google Classrooms.
Students have two 2-hour live classes per week, plus an allotted ‘office hour’ (for short and long retake programmes) which is open to all students to join at the end of the week if they have any additional questions or homework queries. Office hour attendance is optional, but we encourage students to take advantage of this hour to further their independent study.
Teachers set homework and assessments via the Google Classroom portal and will send you homework marks and class updates as you progress. Depending on the course you choose, teachers also provide monthly reports and mock-exam-style assessments to ensure you’re on track to reach your grade.
