You'll have so many talented English tutors to choose from!
People often think that don't need to study English because they already speak it, especially if it's not a subject they want to pursue past their education. But did you know that when you apply for any college subject or job the primary subjects that the panel will look at are your results in English, Maths and Science, as these give them an overall idea of your benchmark and may use this to narrow down their candidates?
So English is a very important subject whether you are doing SATs, GCSE, A Levels or a higher level qualification. English can take you many places, but it can also hold you back if you can't achieve those grades early on. And you don't want to be resitting your basic exams in 5 years time just to land yourself a job, do you?!
‘English studies’ encompass a whole myriad of disciplines - from reading and writing creatively to analysing and deciphering messages - and keeping on top of all aspects of your English education can be tricky alone, even if it is your native language. For example, do you know what a hyperbole is? Or can you explain what Iambic Pentameter is in just one sentence? These are things you might need to know about as young as GCSE level... so you see English is not a straightforward subject and an easy pass. Far from it!
It’s no surprise that you’re looking for a private tutor to help you to juggle all aspects of your studies and brush up on weaknesses. So let us help you to figure out what kind of tutoring is best for you!
Unlike more scientific subjects, there is no one answer to an English essay question. At GCSE, A level and university level, your response to an essay should demonstrate both your ability to think critically and to structure your thoughts and ideas coherently. It seems strange but you can sometimes get more points for wording your response in a certain way, even if you still get the same conclusion as someone else. The examiner wants to effectively see your train of thought down on paper.
For instance, ever wondered why you have to compare texts in exams? The examiners want to see how you make connections between two different styles of texts or subjects and how well you articulate your argument. Being an English examiner must be so fascinating - reading so many different points of views and having their eyes opened to alternative ways to interpret a text!
There is no right or wrong, just better or worse. English studies can be hard to get top grades in! That said, a tutor can help you hit the nail on the head when it comes to impressing the examiner and teach you how to get points.
You may want a private tutor to give you more detailed feedback on your essays that you might get in class, identifying your strengths and weaknesses and helping you to progress.
Maybe you struggle with reading comprehension, with analysing texts and identifying themes. You might be looking for someone to help you to ask the right questions so that you can develop your critical thinking skills – a private tutor might be the answer.
Or maybe the exam season is coming and you’re starting to feel the need for some dedicated revision with a knowledgeable teacher or tutor!
As well as being named England's Capital of Culture in 2017, Hull is famous for its poet Philip Larkin.
Born in 1922, he was a famous post-war England poet, achieving acclaim on quite a small amount of work - but particularly strong and moving collections at that. As well as writing poetry and publishing novels, Larkin worked as a librarian most of his adult life, including at the University of Hull.
Larkin shied away from the limelight and was a very patriotic writer, snubbing most foreign literature, so he was particularly fond of his country and the places that he lived in and loved such as Hull.
Unlike in a group or classroom context, a private tutor can identify your strengths and help you to address your weaknesses. You can choose to see your tutor once a month, once a fortnight, or even twice a week if you want to! With private tuition, your education is personalised.
In brief, private tuition is one of the most efficient ways for you to improve in English.
What's more, you can be flexible about where you meet - at their home office, at your house or even out and about seeing the sights of Hull! How amazing would it be to study in the Grade II listed English Heritage landmark East Park and soak up all the culture around you?!
If you’re in school or university, additional support may be available to you through your institution in the form of study groups or extra time with a teacher after school or at lunch.
You can also look for private tutors in the newspapers, on the internet, through English studies schools, in community centres or on local shop noticeboards. There are so many options that it can be hard to choose which tutor is right for you!
This is where Superprof comes in. Superprof makes it simple for you to compare tutors based across Hull, and to tailor your search to your specific requirements – be it price, location, experience, subject areas or tuition style.
