The capital of England and the United Kingdom, London attracts around 30 million visitors from other countries every year.
First founded by Romans as Londinium, the city has a rich history that manifests itself in its blend of Roman, Georgian, Tudor and Victorian architecture and wealth of interesting tales and attractions. The macabre history of the Tower of London is what draws some, whilst others marvel at the beauty of London’s many palaces… Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace and Lambeth Palace are just a few, but who can forget the residence of the Queen of England: Buckingham Palace! Others come to see the icons of London, be it the infamous Tower Bridge (built in 1984) Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral or Covent Gardens, to name but a few!
London is also known as a city with huge cultural influence. The Natural History Museum and British Museum have world-class exhibitions and galleries that visitors can view for free, and who doesn’t dream of seeing a show on stage at London’s West End or visiting the National Gallery, The National Gallery and Tate Modern?
If you’re a Londoner, you probably can’t live without all this on your doorstep (you and 8 million other people), but sometimes you probably can’t live with it either! Living in the capital is a world away from visiting for a few days. Take one of London’s most famous icons, the London Underground… A novel adventure for tourists, to locals it brings a whole different image to mind: oppressive heat, crowds, queues, and hours of commuting. Navigating the tourist spots themselves can be a challenge for those who work in the area, and the noise of traffic and a heavy haze of pollution are constant companions to most Londoners.
There’s a price to pay for living in one of the world’s most desirable cities, in fact it’s known as London Prices! London is one of the world’s most expensive cities to live in, so whether it’s a house, a private tutor or a packet of crisps, you’ll always expect to pay more in the capital! With the sheer number of people living and working in London, and the sheer number of people moving there, competition for jobs is high too.
As a result it can be hard to find time to dedicate to your own learning, let alone that of your children! This is where private tuition for academic support and leisure activities comes in, and it’s made a whole lot easier by platforms such as Superprof.
Private tuition can be an excellent option for those requiring academic support in all walks of life, but it is especially well-suited to those living in the capital with little spare time.
Rather than going out of your way for an evening class, for example, you can find a tutor who will work with you in the comfort of your own home, at a time and regularity that works for you. Private tutoring also enables you to work at your own pace with no distractions, getting in-depth feedback and tailored advice to help you progress. If you have specific aspirations (such as learning business French to work with champagne producers), your tutor will focus on areas of study that complement you end-goals. If your child is struggling with a certain aspect of their studies, a private tutor might focus on building their confidence in that area.
All this gives you complete control over you or your child’s education!
In addition to improving academic attainment, a private tutor can help your child to develop a methodical approach to studying and teach them to learn independently in the future.
Unlike in a group setting, your child will be able to work at their pace – the tutor devoting more time to trickier areas of study where your child may be feeling left behind in class. For children who find themselves twiddling their thumbs whilst their classmates play catchup, a private tutor can tailor their lessons to their level so that they don’t feel under-challenged.
1:1 academic support sessions also allow tutors to dedicate more time to self-reflection and individual feedback, be it strengths and weaknesses, progress reports or catch ups on how your child feels they’re getting on with school. For young people, feedback and reflection is incredibly motivating and can have a positive impact on their studies.
Extra-curricular activities are equally as important for young people as academic achievement; after all it’s these activities that give them time to relax and unwind whilst developing invaluable transferable skills. Learning a musical instrument, sport or art can teach a child to think out of the box when solving problems, communicate better with others, consider other perspectives or persevere when things are tricky.
Things really start to get real as young people approach sixth form and college, when students find themselves competing for places in universities and on apprenticeship as they build towards their futures. A private tutor could help your child boost their GCSE, A Level or BTEC grades and help them build confidence in their abilities by providing essay feedback and additional study support. When the time comes for university and job interviews, your child may even consider an interview coach (which they could find on Superprof) to help them stay cool and wow the panel. All this will help to give your child the best chance possible to get into Kings College London or UCL!
Participation in non-compulsory extra-curricular activities can be as important as attainment to some university admissions officers and employers because they demonstrate that the young person in question is well-rounded. By learning an instrument, sport or art with a private tutor, your child will give themselves the best chance possible for their future.
Education doesn’t stop after graduating university or finishing your apprenticeship. Adults in London may choose to learn a new skill (such as computer programming or Chinese) to boost their employability or give them an entrepreneurial edge in a new business venture. 1:1 fitness classes such as yoga, pilates, roller skating or French boxing are an excellent way to schedule exercise into a busy diary, and what better way to relax than with a drawing, painting or sculpture class? Non-native English speakers may find a course with an ESOL tutors comes in handy for supporting their children’s studies or finding a job in the UK.
With a Superprof private tutor who comes to your home or tutors you over the web, you can get the most out of your time when learning new skills.
London is a big place so there are lots of options for you to sift through in your search for a private tutor. FE colleges, universities, community centres, specialist music, language or arts schools, business schools, gyms and fitness centres… the list goes on. But time is a commodity in our capital city, so let us make your life a little simpler with Superprof.
Superprof makes finding an excellent tutor easy, no matter your choice of subject or activity. We have over 66,000 tutors delivering lessons in London alone! That’s a lot of choice but don’t panic; you can narrow it down by filtering according to activity, location (including distance learning), price and response time.
Superprof tutors come from a range of backgrounds, from professionals in with years of experience in the field to university students full of enthusiasm for sharing their knowledge. Each tutor sets their rates based on experience, demand for tuition and their geographical location, so you won’t always be coming up against those London prices when you’re looking to develop your skills or support your child’s learning.
To make it easy for you to compare each tutor’s credentials, each profile follows the same format. You can read through each tutor’s experience and methodology, as well as recommendations from students past and present. Group tuition is available if you fancy learning a new skill with a friend, partner or colleague, and many tutors offer a first lesson for free so that you can test the waters before committing to payments.
Tutors will often come to your home or host your class in their workspace, but for those on a budget why not consider online tuition with a Superprof tutor? Many tutors are happy to teach via webcam to reduce travel costs all round, and these lessons can be less expensive that in-person classes – especially if you live in the capital! This way you can learn with people from all over the world: study French with a Parisian or play Spanish guitar with an Andalusian!
If Londoners are used to having the world on their doorstep, Superprof is a world of knowledge at their fingertips. Subjects include academic support in Maths, Chemistry, Physics, English, etc. at all levels – from Primary to A levels and university level. Find guidance in sports such as weightlifting, yoga, roller skating and swimming, or discover the arts with sewing, acting and drawing classes. You may even find your inner Jamie Oliver with a cooking tutor!
The capital is your oyster, just search Superprof for your tutor and get ready to embark on your next learning adventure (no uncomfortable tube journeys necessary!).
