You'll have so many talented English tutors to choose from!
In schools in Wolverhampton and the rest of England, English is taught as an individual subject as well as English language and literature in secondary school. English lessons are also compulsory until the end of your GCSEs so whether you like English as a subject or not, you're going to have to study it for quite a while.
As you can't drop English like you can with other subjects, let's see why English is so important, the challenges that many students face when studying both English language and literature, what they study in school, and how private English tutoring can help any child to improve.
Whether you love your English lessons or not, English is an important subject because you have to study. You're going to spend years in English lessons in primary school and secondary school and if you want good grades, this is one of the subjects you'll have to get them in.
Of course, it's a compulsory subject because it teaches a lot of useful skills that you can use at home, school, or in your future career. Students in Wolverhampton, Birmingham, and around the West Midlands will interact with the English language in their everyday lives on everything from street signs and the news to everything they read online.
A better understanding of the English language will also help you in other subjects and teach children more about English-speaking culture, particularly in their English literature classes.
Sadly, not every student loves their English language or literature classes, which can make life at both primary and secondary school difficult because the class is unavoidable and there are transferrable skills that they won't benefit from in their other lessons, either.
The teaching we receive in primary school is partly to blame for this as children are taught from a young age that learning is about getting the right answer. While this is still true in secondary school, some students will struggle with the blurrier nature of the social sciences and English, in particular, after so many years of looking for the right answer.
English is also a subject that needs to be brought alive by a good teacher. While the words may sometimes jump off the page, English can't boast the excitement that science can bring with fire and explosions, for example. Similarly, if you don't like the book or poem that you're studying, engaging with the material can feel like an uphill struggle. Fortunately, you can solve both of these problems with the right private tutor, but more on that later...
At GCSE, English is taught as two separate subjects: English Language and English Literature. Generally, English Language looks at how we use and analyse our language while literature looks more at artistic works that use the language and the themes within them.
As a guide, we've used the AQA specification GCSE. While there's a lot of overlap between the different exam boards, you should still check the specifications of the GCSE you're studying.
The English Language GCSE teaches students about analysing fiction and non-fiction texts as well as how to compare texts. Students on the course will also learn about how to write by planning out their ideas. There's also part of the course that covers the spoken language, listening, and doing presentations.
The English Literature GCSE covers a variety of books and poetry including Shakespeare. As we mentioned before, the specific texts will depend on the exam board and your school.
Whether you study in English or not, private tuition is a great way to improve your knowledge of the subject and get better exam results. After all, while the teaching in some schools is exceptional and there are some excellent teachers out there, many of them lack the resources to tailor their courses to each student and ensure they get the most out of the time spent studying the subject.
As a school subject, English is very nuanced and a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching will rarely work for every student. Private tutors, however, can adapt their teaching, lessons, and courses to the level and learning style of their student, making sure that they learn the skills they need and get the results they deserve.
Private tutoring is also incredibly useful for students who struggle in a certain subject. More often than not, the problems experienced in class can be resolved by changing the way they're taught.
If you're in Wolverhampton, Birmingham, or the West Midlands and are looking for private tutors, look for them on Superprof. There are home tutors and online tutors who can help students of any level.
You can view each tutor's profile to see what their other students had to say about them, how much they charge, and whether or not they offer the first hour or lesson for free. These free sessions are useful as they'll allow you to try out different tutors and different types of tuition before choosing the solution that's right for you or your child.
As we mentioned, if there aren't any suitable tutors in the West Midlands able to come to your home, you can broaden your search to include online tutors. Since they don't have to travel to their student's home, a lot of these tutors can charge less per hour.
While online tutoring may have some drawbacks when it comes to teaching hands-on subjects, it's often just as effective as face-to-face tutoring when it comes to academic subjects like English, maths, science, and a lot of the subjects that students cover as part of the national curriculum.
For those on a strict budget, you may want to consider group tuition. While you won't get to enjoy tutoring that's tailored to the individual, you can share the cost of the tutor's time and expertise while enjoying smaller class sizes than the typical school or university lesson.
