Why choose Private Tuition?

The main reason parents choose private tuition for their children is to help a child who has fallen behind, to learn another subject outside of school, to take their child's abilities further than they would be in class, or to give their child more attention than is possible in a classroom. Private tuition can raise the levels of your child's school performance, help them to increase their confidence, or give them motivation or enjoyment in a subject. In addition to all this the child is better able to develop study skills and the discipline needed for successful study that can be applied to most subjects.

For Tutors

If you are a private or home tutor you can register with First Tutors for free to advertise your services in your local area. This will enable you to showcase your qualifications or experience and to specify how, when and where you are available for tutoring. We have an "open marketplace", so students can choose private tutors on the merit of what they outline in their tutor profiles, and then contact them online in a safe, secure environment before commencing lessons. Visit our tutors section to learn more about how we approach private tuition.
