COVID-19 UPDATE

Face to face 

Schools are doing a fantastic job in continuing to support students through this uncertain time. However, responding to interest we are advertising limited face to face summer support sessions to help students regain their confidence after lockdown learning.

 

We hope everyone is managing to stay healthy and positive.

"I used both Helena and Alice to tutor my daughter for her GCSEs. She also attended some of their holiday group courses ( voluntarily I might add!) I am delighted to say that my daughter got great grades in her GCSEs and had her confidence boosted with the great tuition she received."  S. Eccleston

We deliver bespoke GCSE and A Level revision courses in English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics during school holidays. Please see our schedule or contact us for further details.

EASTER COURSES

Along with the new grading system to better differentiate student outcomes, there have been extensive changes to all subjects. This includes greater reliance on examinations for assessment, more demanding and applied content as well as one suite of exams at the end of the course. This cocktail of reform can be daunting for parents and students alike, but at Thames Tutoring we have the experience that has weathered many changes and mastered these types of transitions. 

 

It is widely regarded that revision courses during the Easter break can provide a boost in academic achievement, increase confidence and aid exam technique. Addressing students’ understanding of the most challenging topics and common misconceptions they still have time to build on their achievements made on the course and implement them in their exams.
