All of our tutors have undergone a rigorous screening process including a fourfold safety and quality check:
Tuition takes place online via our virtual classroom, Tutorbranch. We will ensure you are fully set up and comfortable with using Tutorbranch before your first lesson begins.
All tutors will wear a Solent Tutors ID badge clearly displayed at all times. Each will have a unique ST tutor reference number.
We have a rigorous recruitment process and have carefully selected our tutors on the basis of their ability to provide a quality service. They have had to prove their knowledge of all relevant exam boards and contemporary curricula. Furthermore, each tutor has had to clearly demonstrate exceptional communication and teaching skills as well as academic excellence. Through both background checks and in-depth interviews, all of our tutors have had to thoroughly prove themselves to us, so that we can prove ourselves to you!
You pay the tutor via online bank transfer or by cheque.
This is largely up to you. You will be able to arrange lessons with the tutor assigned to you. Tuition is normally arranged on a weekly basis but additional lessons can be booked if necessary.
We are constantly adding to our bank of tutors so our subject list is being continually updated. Contact us with your request and we will do our very best to meet your tuition needs.
Yes. Distance learning is available via our specially-designed online tuition platform and has proved extremely successful with previous clients.
A good tutor must have good subject-specific knowledge. It is also essential that a tutor is able to communicate this knowledge effectively through the use of advanced teaching methods. Our tutors are chosen for their competence in both of these areas.
The main advantage of one-to-one tuition is that our tutors can adapt their teaching techniques to the specific learning style of the student. Furthermore, a tutor can work to your pace. Most students also find that one-to-one tuition builds general confidence and results are often seen more quickly.
Yes! Our tutors are aware of many different methods to stimulate interest such as interactive learning games and Internet resources, as well as using more traditional tutoring methods. This ensures that students are engaging with the subject matter at all times and therefore maximises their learning potential.
Psychologists have discovered that we remember more from what we have learned at the beginning and the end of a session. The way to capitalise on this is to break a teaching session into smaller tasks. This maximises concentration and learning. Our tutors are aware of this technique and will therefore endeavour to divide each hourly lesson into 2-3 smaller chunks so that the maximum information is retained by the student.
