Think Tutors are acutely aware that each child thrives from a bespoke education, and are experts at delivering tuition in a variety of contexts. Although the pandemic has necessitated a shift towards online tutoring, we offer traditional in-person tuition, longer term homeschool tutoring, alongside mentoring support and holiday tuition – or even a combination of all. All of our tuition is in effect face-to-face, and whatever the situation, we strive to provide a personalised service which is both convenient, and vitally, fosters a healthy and happy learning environment for your child.
This blog will detail the different types of tuition we offer and consider why it is important to find a bespoke tuition solution which suits you and your child. If you have any questions, or are interested in learning more about the different types of tuition we offer, we can be contacted online.
What Is In-Person Tutoring?
In-person tuition with Think Tutors resumed it's popularity since it was deemed safe to continue after the pandemic, with students of all ages benefiting from both the convenience, and chance to connect in-person with their tutor.
A typical session lasts between an hour and two hours and is located at your house at a time which suits you. It is important to note that all our tutors all are briefed with the latest government guidelines relating to COVID-19 before they undertake an in-person assignment.
In-person tuition takes many forms, as our tutors offer a personalised style for each of their students. In the past we have found that Younger Years students benefit from the one-to-one attention of an in-person session, where tutors can utilise a wider variety of games and innovative methodology to keep the student engaged and learning.
For older students at A-Level, undergraduate and postgraduate, tutors often draw from their own academic background to use the ‘Oxford Tutorial’ system. Through this method, the student and tutor engage in critical discussions about course material, coursework, exam questions and further reading.
We offer in-person tuition across the UK. If you are interested, please contact us.
What Is Online Tutoring?
Often, when people think of tuition, they picture the online tuition offered by schools, universities and mass market agencies in the past two years – impersonal and fraught with technical challenges. Online tuition with Think Tutors is available with our elite professional tutors, utilises an innovative combination of online resources, and students can be taught in the comfort of their own home. With 4K webcams, professional microphones and strong WIFI, all our tutors are equipped to deliver the same level of personal service, online.
Sessions typically make use of a video calling platform, such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype as the major form of communication, with whiteboards and collaborative working software being used to supplement learning. If you would like to learn more about how online tuition can be scheduled to help meet your child’s learning goals, please do contact us.
What Is Homeschooling?
Homeschooling has increased in popularity since the COVID-19 pandemic challenged the education system, with many parents choosing to educate their children with the freedom, both logistically and educationally, to design schooling around their lifestyle. There is no typical homeschooling assignment, rather, we cater for any request, offering homeschooling both in the UK and internationally in all subjects, at all levels.
What Is Mentoring Support?
Academic mentoring is offered to students who have a solid grasp of course content, but may struggle with the other challenges presented by full-time education. For example, students may need help with scheduling, essay techniques, revision methodology or a mixture of all three. With exemplary academic backgrounds, our tutors are fluent in helping them rise to the challenges of a demanding education to meet or exceed their academic goals.
Typically, students undertaking GCSE’s, A-Levels, undergraduate or postgraduate study, benefit better from academic mentors, however, students of all ages and levels can find a mentor helpful. Please see our mentoring page for more information.
