Confused about Economics?
For many students, the concepts and theories in Economics can be difficult to grasp at first. It can be a frustrating experience trying to tackle the subject without the added aid and support offered by a private tutor. Whether you are studying GCSE, A-Level or Pre-U we offer first class private tuition in the subject.

Private A-level, GCSE and Common Entrance tutors travel abroad
Travel with a Private Tutor
London-based private tutoring agency, Tutor House is offering a new service to tour operators, cruise lines and travel organisers, to provide private tutors to accompany families on holiday in the UK or overseas and tutor children aged 11 – 18 in any GCSE and A Level subject, as well as provide Common Entrance preparation.
Available on a flexible basis, bookable by the day, Tutor House’s tutors provide up to 5 hours of tuition each day, combined with childcare, and tutors will travel with the family, or can fly in for a specific period, to provide the extra academic input.
Director of Tutor House and professional tutor, Alex Dyer said; ‘By offering this new service, families can now go on holiday out of season, or during term time, without having to worry that their children will fall behind at school.’
The service works equally well for families taking a villa holiday, a ski holiday or staying in a hotel, and it gives families the potential to travel any time of the year, reducing the stress of taking children out of school during term time.
Alex goes on to say; ‘Families can also optimise key revision periods, such as Easter and Christmas holidays, as well as offering tuition outside of congested exam and school periods, like summer, where children can really benefit from additional support before they begin the next school year.’
Tutor House employs the services of over 180 specialist tutors, offering a variety of disciplines, from PE to physics, tennis to IT, with specific tuition offered to international and UK students for Common Entrance and senior school examinations, GCSE and A levels.

If you have met all required grades but have had a slight change of mind…
A-Level Results day has arrived and you have successfully attained all desired grades across your subjects and consequently been accepted to study your chosen degree programme at your desired university.
In this case, congratulations!
However, it is not uncommon have a sudden epiphany and decide that you have not made an informed decision regarding the degree course or University you have chosen to commit the next, at least, three years to.
Some universities will allow you to switch courses within the University and across different programmes, while other universities will accept a transfer after a year of study at the University you originally enrolled to, provided that you achieve the necessary grades. In any case, get in touch with your University as soon as possible!
Nonetheless, you may then decide that you are not ready to commit to higher education just yet and would like to take time out to travel the world or volunteer abroad- an opportunity that you may not be able to take again in the future! It is crucial that you choose the right path and make the best decision for yourself. Take your time to gather your thoughts.
This is decision time!
If you have not met your required grades…
On the other hand, you may not have obtained the grades required for the university of your choice- but do not panic! Universities are high- level educational institutions and are often considerate and understanding of various circumstances. If you have missed your place only marginally then it may be worth pursuing a remark or explaining the situation to the faculty admissions centre- they may be willing to overlook your grades if they feel that your academic and extracurricular background are worth merit.
Alternatively, you can enrol on a course that is still available on the day that results are published through a platform called ‘Clearing’ via UCAS. Clearing can be a stressful process so if you feel that you may not obtain your desired grades then prepare for the competitiveness of courses on clearing.
Universities will want to know why they should accept you onto their degree programme in the place of any other candidate so be prepared to answer their questions, which could include:
- What were your final A- Level results?
- What were you predicted grades and why were you unable to attain those grades?
- Why do you want to study this particular course at this institution? Why is this course suited to your interests and achievements to this date?
- What will you bring to their university and the wider community?
We can help you!
However, if the different available options listed above are not viable in your situation, Tutor House will be able to offer you alternatives and support you in the process. With Tutor House, you can re-sit individual units or take on and complete an entire A- Level subject, without any previous background work, through focused, structured and tailored, bespoke one-to-one tuition with our team of high- achieving educational professionals, for the academic year.
The benefits of one-to-one tuition are exhaustive, and we have seen many young adults achieve their potential through this means.
