English Tutor Cheshire     Areas Covered and Costs

The vast majority of tutor sessions now are online, though a few students have lessons face to face with me occasionally.

I currently have students in the following areas locally: Knutsford, Altrincham, Bowdon, Hale, Lymm, Wilmslow and Alderley Edge. I also tutor students as far afield as London and Switzerland, such are the affordances of Zoom and other online learning platforms.

Tuition is charged at £60 per hour for the academic year starting in September 2024.

Length of sessions

For GCSE and A Level students, sessions are one hour, usually between the hours of 4 and 9pm on weekday evenings.

Younger students sometimes opt for sessions of 45 minutes duration.

Booking weekly sessions

Most students and parents agree that having a regular weekly session is the best way to proceed, usually one evening during the week or a suitable time on Sundays. This provides the student with some structure, focus and momentum and enables us to set out a plan with specific goals over an agreed period of time.

During the school holidays, many students opt to take up more frequent sessions as a lot can be achieved in a relatively short space of time, such as consolidating areas of weakness in technique or subject knowledge or doing some useful, stimulating wider reading!

As the academic year progresses, the focus for most students inevitably shifts towards the examination period. With this in mind, I tend to work more on the skills required when working under timed conditions as well as ensuring that all those crucial organisational elements are being attended to. This is frequently something that younger students struggle with unless they are given some clear, supportive guidance.

Preparation and organisation are the cornerstones of success in exams!  I can help get these basics sorted out for the students so that they are able to work independently and with increasing confidence.
