Personal Customer Support
With years of experience in the education field, we can provide you with a personal touch to customer service, so that you can contact us to discuss any aspect of your child’s education any time.
It seems that no sooner has one exam season ended than our thoughts turn to the next. If your child has recently completed their GCSEs, they may well have already planned their next steps in education and training, and for many young people, this will be to commence studying for A Levels following receipt of their GCSE results.
The perceptions of a huge leap in the level of academic demand between GCSE and A Level largely hold true and for many young people who may have found GCSE content and exams relatively manageable, A Level is the first stage at which they are truly challenged by their school work and this can be a difficult transition to manage. Nevertheless, good A Level grades are essential in accessing a choice of university or training schemes. As such, the need for young people to maximise their chances of meeting their full potential at A Level cannot be understated.
Your child may already be engaged in A Level studies and you may feel that now is a good time for them to access tutor support, either because they are falling behind or they require support in specific topic areas. Principal Tutors will be able to find the right tutor for your child.
A Level may be the first time you have even considered accessing a tutor for your child, or you may feel that a new skill set is needed if you have previously had tuition in place.
Principal Tutors pride ourselves on matching you with the best A Level tutors to suit your child’s needs. Rather than simply acting as a directory of tutors without any personalisation involved, our A Level tutors, after being introduced to your child, will conduct an initial assessment and come up with a personalised plan. Your child will then have access to online A Level tutoring with a fully qualified and experienced teacher or lecturer. This removes the guesswork involved in trawling through numerous online profiles with variable levels of information; an experience encountered all too often with some online tuition services.
Principal Tutors never engage undergraduates, only experienced, qualified teachers. We know that there is no substitute for a tutor who has real and repeated experience of preparing young people for A Level exams and who is able to discuss exam techniques and identify with accuracy the areas of the curriculum on which to focus, based upon their initial assessment of your child’s needs.
Another advantage of using a tutor engaged through Principal Tutors is that our focus is on online A Level tutoring, rather than in-person, so there are no travel logistics to worry about. We fully exploit current technologies and online lessons can be recorded and sent to you on request, providing you with visibility of and insight into your child’s progress.
Principal Tutors offers you and your child the best of both worlds. We can provide the focus and flexibility of your own private tutor with the backup and support of the Principal Tutors team.
Our customer service team is available for any questions or concerns and is also staffed by experienced teachers, ensuring knowledgeable and prompt responses.
A wisely chosen tutor working one to one with your child can not only address misconceptions and help to clarify any areas of weakness, but they can also improve understanding beyond the essentials and help your child to plan their revision and enhance their exam technique. All of this combines to increase their confidence and their chances of securing the best possible grades at A Level.
