GCSEs/IB Middle Years programme
GCSEs and IGCSEs will be a very strenuous time for any 16 year old as they will be sitting anywhere between 10 to 20 exams in the space of 2 to 3 weeks. It may be a good idea to get a member of our team to provide you with guidance on what the best steps are. If your child needs to develop their strengths or wants to improve his or her weaknesses in certain areas then we can provide the necessary help to take them through that journey.
A levels/IB Diploma Programme
At The Tutor Solution, we focus on what is required in the exam so that means not just knowledge but the application that is required, the level of detail in your analysis and how to challenge the status quo (evaluation). These are a must if you are serious about giving yourself the best chance of getting a top grade. That is why we teach and consult in what will get you’re the results.
University is where students feel most isolated. They do not have the help they need from universities or even the necessary guidance. It could be a simple issue with understanding the coursework guidelines or where to start your essay. These all stem from the lack of facetime you get with your lecturers, which means independence kicks in for a student. That is why we have started providing expert university tutors so that students do not have to feel as though they need to study alone.
