How can we help you?

 

Our specialised home and online tutors can support your child with GCSEs. In years 10 and 11, students have to prepare for and sit their GCSE exams.

Our Client Care Manager Rasheeda is there to guide and support you in finding a tutor which matches your needs.

  1. Before the commencement of lessons, Rasheeda, our Client Care Manager carefully selects a tutor for you after discussion on your needs and subjects.

  2. One of our experienced tutors would then carry out a taster lesson with you, just to ensure you feel 100%  comfortable with his/ her teaching styles and methods, before you begin to pay for regular lessons!

  3. Once you feel we have found the tutor that matches your exact needs, weekly lessons would be carried out with your tutor. Your tutor would provide feedback and homework after every session.

Here are some tutors that can support you child

Subjects

 

GCSEs consist of three core subjects: Maths, English & Science. Science may be studied as combined or triple science. The students are given the option to pick 6 other subjects which might include Design Technology, History, Geography etc in line with an area that they would like to go into for their careers/ an area that interest them/ a subject area that they would like to study for their A-Levels and university. 

 

There are other vocational qualifications like BTECs or NVQs which are GCSE equivalent which some students may opt for, as they are assignments rather than exam based.

Grading

The exams consist of a grading of 9-1 exams; 9 is the highest grade and is an equivalent to an A*, 8 a A etc. In KS3 (years 7-9)  students are working towards Grades 1-5 to build their base in knowledge for the GCSE years, where students are working towards Grades 5-9. 

 

The grades achieved at GCSE would be taken into account for getting a place in a college or sixth form to complete certain A-Levels.
