York Private Tutors FAQs

When is the best time to book a Science tutor in York ?

This really depends on the needs of the individual student. In most cases booking a Science tutor at the start of a new academic year is preferable as they then have time to go through the entire course with the pupil instead of trying to play catch up. As we approach the exams most of our Science tuition slots are taken so availability becomes very limited. 

Do you offer GCSE Science tuition for Biology, Chemistry and Physics?

Yes we offer tuition in all three GCSE Sciences. Most Science teachers tend to only teach one of the Sciences where our Science tutors all teach a minimum of two Sciences, so if your child is struggling with GCSE Biology and Chemistry we can get one tutor help with both subjects. 

Do you offer both English Literature and English Langunage tuition?

Yes we have expert GCSE and A Level English tutors in York who offer both literature and language tuition for all the major exam boards which the schools in York cover. 

Do you tutor students from ... school in York?

Parents often ask if our York tutors have taught students from specific schools and the short answer is yes. We have students from primary and secondary schools from across York.
