Why GCSE tuition could benefit your child

By time it comes to your child taking their GCSE examinations, you may consider GCSE tuition. GCSE stands for General Certificate of Secondary Education and are taken by most British students, as well as many international students studying the British curriculum abroad, between the ages of 14 and 16 years.

These examinations are an important stepping stone for further education. With many children taking multiple GCSEs, alongside the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, there can be a lot to juggle.

Private tuition could help manage your child’s time more efficiently by supporting them in the subjects that may need extra attention. As well as providing more time for learning, GCSE tuition can also instil confidence in your child and help them to feel less stressed.

Why is GCSE tuition important?


GCSE tutoring can be a huge helping hand. GCSEs are the first big examinations that your child will take on. This is the first time that they will sit this many exams in a short period of time and it can be difficult for them to adjust. Extra tuition can help better prepare them.

There is a lot of pressure when it comes to GCSE examinations because they are a route to A Levels and university. Some schools may say that your child cannot take a specific subject at A Level unless they have a certain grade in the same subject at GCSE.

Even if your child is not considering going to university, your child’s GCSE results will affect future employment. Many employers look for candidates with a minimum number of GCSE qualifications, even at entry level.

It is important that your child starts with the best possible results before entering the world of work. The better their GCSE results, the more opportunities they will be able to pursue. Help your child get the best start with tuition sessions outside of a school setting.

The benefits of GCSE tuition for your child

As you can see, there is a lot of pressure on your child when it comes to these examinations. GCSE tuition can help reduce this by preparing your child not only with each individual subject, but with expectations also.

Here are a few of the reasons why you should consider GCSE tuition for your child.

One-to-one teaching

In many school settings today, class sizes are large. This means that the teacher does not get to spend much time with each student individually. Unfortunately, this could result in some students, especially those easily distracted or shy pupils, to miss out.

With private tuition, your child will receive individual assistance that is wholly focused on them. At Sussex Tuition Centre, we tailor lessons to suit the child’s style of learning to help them get the most out of sessions.

Support with a challenging subject

Most children will struggle with at least one subject. The GCSE examinations can cover a wide range of topics so it is inevitable that some areas may be weaker than others. Through tutoring sessions, we can devote more time to these difficult subjects to help them grasp the topic better.

Boost confidence

Learning from compassionate adults that take the time to listen can make a big difference to a child’s life. If your child is having a difficult time at school, GCSE tuition can boost their confidence by helping them to achieve the results they are aiming for.

Reduce stress

GCSE examinations can be very stressful. Not to mention the added pressure from school and loved ones. A lot of tension is put on a child during this time which could lead to them struggling to engage.

Tutoring services help support the child by relieving some of the stress. With the extra learning hours focusing on the course topics, your child will feel supported. We give them the time to grow at their own pace.

Prepare for examinations

Many children do not know what to expect when it comes to their GCSE exams. Teachers do their best when it comes to preparing students to meet the needs of the exam boards but often, children are left with questions about how it all works.

We have a number of tutors that are also experienced GCSE examiners. They will talk through what to expect on the day and after the exams. Preparing your child for the examination process can help them to feel more at ease leading up to it.

Revision help

As well as the examination process, many children struggle with how to use their revision time efficiently. With so many subjects, it can be hard to work out what to focus on.

A GCSE tutor will help your child to manage their revision time to ensure that they are spending the correct amount of time on the right subjects. Getting an early start on revision can only be good, so it is best to get these practices in place sooner rather than later.

Reinforce learning

Your child will be taking a lot of information on during the day at school. It is important to reinforce this learning so they remember it for the examinations. A tutor will help to bolster your child’s knowledge, taking good results to great results.
