Online GCSE Tuition by Experienced UK Teachers – Principal Tutors
Provide Your Child With the Best Academic Foundation with One-2-One Online GCSE Tutoring
The General Certificate of Secondary Education (the GCSE) is the basic educational certificate in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. GCSEs cover a broad range of subjects and are graded to reflect a wide range of competence in each subject. Studying for GCSE certificates serves three broad purposes. The first is to provide children and older students too with a structured body of skills and knowledge that can enrich their understanding of the world and provide them with useful, transferrable skills. The second is to demonstrate their aptitudes to prospective employers and the third is to open doorways into further academic study or practical training.
In the school system, the GCSE teacher is usually expected to impart an entire GCSE syllabus to each student over a 2 year period. This is often impossible for a variety of reasons; students suffer illnesses and absences (as do teachers), teaching styles may not suit every student, equipment and reading materials can be in limited supply and so forth.
Fortunately, GCSE online tutoring is readily available, allowing any student to overcome these limitations in their own time. Online GCSE tutors can amend their lesson plans to match the strengths and weaknesses of the individual student. Courses can be short or long and a GCSE tutor is under no pressure to cram topics into an academic time table.
Expert GCSE Tutoring to Enhance Your Child’s Subject Knowledge and Prepare them for Their Crucial Exams
In the school system, GCSEs are usually taught in Year 10 and Year 11 (pupils aged from 13 to 16). This period is also defined as key stage four in the National Curriculum. However, GCSE online tutoring is available to people of all ages. GCSE courses are popular with more mature students and can also be undertaken by enthusiastic youngsters in earlier age groups.
Every GCSE is valuable but the government has defined a group of subjects it considers vocationally most important. This has been referred to as “the English Baccalaureate” and it comprises the following core subjects; English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Combined Science or three individual sciences (from Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science and Physics), a modern or ancient Foreign Language, Geography or History. This list of subjects is a guideline. You can certainly secure good jobs or university places with other subject combinations but it is always wise to prioritise the subjects that will advance your future plans.
All of our online GCSE tutors are fully qualified with years of teaching experience in schools and colleges. We carefully choose a GCSE tutor that is well-matched to the student and their particular requirements. The GCSE tutor, in turn, conduct an initial assessment with the student and design their lesson plans to address specific areas of concern. We use a range of online resources for delivering lessons, notably including an ‘interactive whiteboard’ on which both the student and tutor can write. Lesson notes are usually provided as downloads to accompany each lesson – saving time that can be spent actively learning through online interaction.
There is no one size fits all online GCSE course, digital media creates many opportunities to provide the material in the way each student wants or needs, while at the same time providing full one-to-one attention that is not possible with traditional schooling. It doesn’t matter whether your child is a struggling student hoping to catch up in time for a scheduled exam or whether they are already a star pupil who wants to boost their grade or simply satisfy their enthusiasm for learning. Carefully targeted online tuition from an experienced GCSE tutor ensures that everyone can gain in confidence and enthusiasm for the subject. In fact, success in one subject often makes others easier, and more enjoyable, to master.
