Connect with tutors offering Primary, KS3, GCSE, A-Level, and Degree level English support

"I speak English every day so I don't need to revise for the English exam." Is this the right attitude? No way! Being good at School English is far from being able to speak the language.

What's more, 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.

We can think of countless reasons to pursue studies in English literature or the English language with a private tutor. Whatever your motivation, Plymouth has lots of opportunities to offer you and English will make a difference!

Hiring a Tutor to Help with Essay and Exam Strategy

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.

Why Hire a Tutor?

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!

There are many reasons why you might be seeking additional support in English studies. In Plymouth alone, there are currently 73 tutors waiting to pass on their knowledge and give you the best start in life, beginning with your English education.

Having a private tutor help you with your English studies can also improve other areas of studies too since critical thinking and other English skills can be transferred to almost every other subject.
