Primary English

It is crucial that children get a good grounding in English from an early age. Simple problems with phonics or grammar in primary can lead to issues when students get to secondary school and find that they are not equipped with the basic tools to apply to more complex work and texts. Unfortunately many children find the classroom environment daunting and tutors cannot always ensure that everyone is making the progress they need to. A private English teacher can really help to build confidence and address specific problem areas children have.

Secondary English

Changes to the national curriculum introduced in 2015 make GCSEs significantly more demanding for students. Ofqual has judged that historically English has been overgraded which means that the step up in difficulty for English students is greater than in other subjects.

The most critical changes are that the course will be more demanding, especially at grade C level, assessment will not all be external and students will be examined at the end of the course only.

The first examinations on the new basis will be in 2017 and there will also be a new grading system introduced. Many parents feel that the first students taking the new course are disadvantaged and have had to overcome a significant jump in the level needed to attain a good grade. Indeed we expect demand for London English tutors and throughout the UK in the run up to exams in 2017 to be well above that seen in previous years.
