I have just graduated from the Warwick which is in the top 5 in the university rankings for universities in the UK for Mathematics. I studied Discrete Mathematics for 3 years achieving a third degree class Bsc with honours. I achieve an A* and an A in A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics respectfully. I have 7 months of experience tutoring GCSE Mathematics at a tuition centre. I have been able to help students with their understanding of Mathematics which can be shown by the increase in the percentage they scored when they had their first mock compared to their second, one student went from getting 34% to 83% and another went 53% to 89%. I like to make sure I plan with my students on what work we will be doing for each individual day and then make more long term plans as well so that they know what to expect. This also enables my students to see their own progress which is significant for students as this gratification will make them more optimistic about getting a better grade than they started off with. Making it fun while maintaining professional is vital as this allows for students to enjoy it while they work and they are more likely to keep focus rather than working in total silence the entire session leading them to getting bored and tired.

I am a highly experienced tutor of Mathematics, Physics, Science and German. I have been a private tutor since 2009. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and abilities immensely. Seeing someone develop throughout the course of our work together is extremely rewarding. I am native German and graduated from (the German equivalent to) Grammar School with an A average, after which I did my Bachelors Degree here in London, graduating in the top set of my year. Being a native German speaker, I enjoy sharing my mother tongue with students from all around the world. Throughout the years I have taught students of all kinds of backgrounds including children of German parents, who wanted help raising their children bilingually, as well as UK students, who need help improving their German skills in school and adults, who want to learn the language to expand their career opportunities. My main focus group in Maths and Physics are students from the age of 11 to 16 (Levels KS3 to GCSE). I have also always found great interest and joy in Maths and Science and my main goal is not only to help students to improve their grades, but to also encourage them to find a greater understanding and fun in the subjects they might have a lack of enthusiasm for. I am able to communicate material that might sound hard and unmanageable in school in a clearer way, so that my students get a much better and deeper grasp of the subject. They are then able to transfer these acquired skills to their work in school. I only teach subjects that I feel passionate about and I believe that shows in my teaching approach. In my opinion learning a new language or improving oneself in a certain subject is a team effort between the teacher and the student, which is exactly how I treat my lessons. My lessons are tailored to the specific needs of my students. I follow their school curriculum to support their learning at school but alter from it, if I find a different approach to a certain topic would be beneficial to the student. Every students learns differently and I incorporate that into the development of our lessons. The same goes for my adult learner students. We all have a busy daily schedule and I acknowledge that. But I still keep a heavy focus on the goal set in the beginning of our lessons.

Which GCSE subjects should I study?

There's a huge variety of subjects, so it can be difficult to know which GCSEs are right for you. The basic options are straightforward, you need to study English (Language and Literature), Maths (Foundation or Higher) and Science (Single, Double or Triple award). The rest is up to you; it's up to you to choose the subjects that you're interested in. Most students choose to study History or Geography, Business or Economics and Classics or a Language. Don't forget to check the exam boards as well; AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC and CIE.

The final choice is yours, the easiest way to pass a GCSE is to choose the subjects that you like, so do some research beforehand.

Tutor House: tutoring with a difference

We interview and screen all of our tutors.

All of our tutors are educated to degree level.

Every one of our tutors has an up-to-date DBS check.

What help can I get?

At Tutor House we offer private tutoring, home-schooling, revision courses, retake courses and exam entries. (Basically, we can help!) Private tutoring can be invaluable at GCSE level as students are increasingly feeling the pressure to achieve top grades in order to be qualified to study their desired A-Level subjects. A number of universities now require Maths, English and Science GCSE as a pre-requisite for university admission; so, in many ways, success at GCSE is as important as it is at A-Level.

The volume of work that is presented to GCSE students is substantial; therefore the key to success is often exam preparation and organisation. For example, in ICT there is a huge volume of coursework which must be complete, the key for this is to start really early in the term and get it out of the way by March, way before the exams!

Tutoring FAQs

A

Yes, we operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. Our policy protects both tutor and customer. You can cancel your booking without incurring any charges as long as it’s cancelled at least 48 hours before the lesson is due to take place. However, if you cancel your lesson within 48 hours you will be charged the full amount. If there is an unforeseen circumstance, then both the tutor and Tutor House will discuss this with you. In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

A

By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

A

Tutor House endeavours to ensure that both tutors and clients have the best possible experience with our service. We’re always here to help, so do reach out and contact us. If you ever have unresolved disputes with your tutor we will assist you in reaching a mutual agreement. We will do our utmost to try and resolve all disputes; however we may not be in a position to resolve every dispute. Please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

A

After selecting your tutor for your desired material, you can book a lesson right away! Send an inquiry to your selected Tutor and once a tutor accepts your inquiry, it will be registered as an ‘open enquiry’ within your messages tab. This is where you will be able to communicate with our tutors, discuss your requirements, arrange lesson times, and book and pay for lessons. When you submit your booking request, the credit card details provided will be subject to an authorisation hold (to the total amount agreed with the tutor for the cost of the initial session and for any other lessons which will take place thereafter). Not only that, but you can also rate and review your tutor once you’ve had your lesson! Tutor House values your feedback.

A

Yes, we do take a fee, but at a fraction of the rate which other companies charge. We don’t have a sign up fee for new customers, we don’t charge an introduction fee, and we don’t charge administration fees. However, we do charge a small commission which pays for the security of tutors (we meet all tutors, check their DBS certificates and ensure they are who they say there are), and the maintenance of the site. If you have any problems using the site, you can always email or call us.

A

If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

A

Booking and paying for private tuition has never been easier! As a customer, you’ll need to add your credit or debt card details to your profile after you sign in. You can pay the tutor directly and securely through the Tutor House website. However, if you do pay outside of the Tutor House site, you will not be protected by our 48 hour Cancelation Policy, nor our Disputes or Refunds Policy, we also do not guarantee that you’ll be protected from fraud. You will then receive a confirmation email notifying you of the hours completed with the tutor. The email will also confirm the date and time that the lesson(s) took place. Payment will be automatically processed by Tutor House’s Payment Service Provider (PSP). We do not charge you a joining fee or an administration fee, instead we allow you to interact with your chosen tutor directly. You pay the tutor online using a debit or credit card, with your booking being secure and private. Our tutors get paid on the same day of the lesson, so please make sure that you’ve confirmed the lesson before your tutor arrives. Of course! We use Stripe as our third party payment platform. Stripe are PCI compliant, so you’re protected from fraud, and can we issued refunds without any cost to you. (But only if you pay through the website, please see our terms).

A

Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.

A

If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

A

Finding a tutor with Tutor House is fast, simple, and secure. Our online tutoring platform helps you find, message and book tutors within a few clicks. Simply enter your required subject with the level and your location, and our website will return a list of recommended tutors. You can then filter these tutors according to experience, price, and recommendation. Each tutor has a detailed profile with a personal statement and details about their qualifications and teaching experience.

I have just graduated from the Warwick which is in the top 5 in the university rankings for universities in the UK for Mathematics. I studied Discrete Mathematics for 3 years achieving a third degree class Bsc with honours. I achieve an A* and an A in A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics respectfully. I have 7 months of experience tutoring GCSE Mathematics at a tuition centre. I have been able to help students with their understanding of Mathematics which can be shown by the increase in the percentage they scored when they had their first mock compared to their second, one student went from getting 34% to 83% and another went 53% to 89%. I like to make sure I plan with my students on what work we will be doing for each individual day and then make more long term plans as well so that they know what to expect. This also enables my students to see their own progress which is significant for students as this gratification will make them more optimistic about getting a better grade than they started off with. Making it fun while maintaining professional is vital as this allows for students to enjoy it while they work and they are more likely to keep focus rather than working in total silence the entire session leading them to getting bored and tired.

I am a highly experienced tutor of Mathematics, Physics, Science and German. I have been a private tutor since 2009. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and abilities immensely.

After selecting your tutor for your desired material, you can book a lesson right away! Send an inquiry to your selected Tutor and once a tutor accepts your inquiry, it will be registered as an ‘open enquiry’ within your messages tab. This is where you will be able to communicate with our tutors, discuss your requirements, arrange lesson times, and book and pay for lessons. When you submit your booking request, the credit card details provided will be subject to an authorisation hold (to the total amount agreed with the tutor for the cost of the initial session and for any other lessons which will take place thereafter). Not only that, but you can also rate and review your tutor once you’ve had your lesson! Tutor House values your feedback.

Yes, we do take a fee, but at a fraction of the rate which other companies charge. We don’t have a sign up fee for new customers, we don’t charge an introduction fee, and we don’t charge administration fees. However, we do charge a small commission which pays for the security of tutors (we meet all tutors, check their DBS certificates and ensure they are who they say there are), and the maintenance of the site. If you have any problems using the site, you can always email or call us.

If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

Booking and paying for private tuition has never been easier! As a customer, you’ll need to add your credit or debt card details to your profile after you sign in. You can pay the tutor directly and securely through the Tutor House website. However, if you do pay outside of the Tutor House site, you will not be protected by our 48 hour Cancelation Policy, nor our Disputes or Refunds Policy, we also do not guarantee that you’ll be protected from fraud. You will then receive a confirmation email notifying you of the hours completed with the tutor. The email will also confirm the date and time that the lesson(s) took place. Payment will be automatically processed by Tutor House’s Payment Service Provider (PSP). We do not charge you a joining fee or an administration fee, instead we allow you to interact with your chosen tutor directly. You pay the tutor online using a debit or credit card, with your booking being secure and private. Our tutors get paid on the same day of the lesson, so please make sure that you’ve confirmed the lesson before your tutor arrives. Of course! We use Stripe as our third party payment platform. Stripe are PCI compliant, so you’re protected from fraud, and can we issued refunds without any cost to you. (But only if you pay through the website, please see our terms).

Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.

If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.
