Schools are doing a fantastic job in continuing to support students through this uncertain time. However, responding to interest we are advertising some online courses over the summer. 

Initially we will be running Maths courses with Alice online, please contact us if you're interested in other subjects or levels we could cover before the new term commences. 


We hope everyone is managing to stay healthy and positive.

EASTER COURSES

GCSE and A Level in English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics

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.
