Foreign language private tuition
Our private tutors cover over 20 different languages, see below.
What levels do our language tutors teach?
Fleet Tutors provides high quality language tutors across all levels; from KS1 (primary/preparatory) to universityand postgraduate level. Although language tutors are most commonly needed to support students prior to GCSEs and A levels, our private tutors are also experienced at preparing students for most exams from SATs and 7/8+ entrance exams to common entrance for independent schools (11/13+) and grammar school 11+. Whether you are preparing for an exam or learning a language for business or holiday purposes we can find the right private tutors for you.
Do our private tutors offer more specific help?
Our private tutors offer expert advice in anything from GCSE preparation for written, verbal or oral exams to helping businesses develop their employees' language skills. Our language tutors develop a tailored programme of tuition for each student which starts by completing an Individual Tuition Plan (ITP) with the student during the first tutoring session in order to determine what specific areas need to be covered and to define the tuition goals and objectives.
What experience do our language tutors have?
All of Fleet Tutors' private tutors are required to have relevant teaching or tutoring experience. Many of our private tutors are qualified teachers; others are experienced tutors with language degrees. All must have up to date knowledge of the curriculum and various exam boards including AQA, EDEXCEL and OCR.
What qualifications do our private tutors have?
All of our private tutors are required to hold at least a degree in the subject they tutor at a 2.1 or above or a teaching qualification recognised by the General Teaching Council. So in the case of languages all of our private tutors will hold, as a minimum, a language degree graded at 2.1 or above or be a native speaker of that language and hold a degree in a different subject.
How do you know your children will be safe with our private tutors?
All of our private tutors hold Enhanced Criminal Record Bureau Disclosures (CRBs), or Enhanced Disclosure Scotland's which we check very closely. The CRB are an executive agency of the Home Office which vets applications for people who want to work with children and vulnerable people. We interview and obtain 2 references for every private tutor; one work reference and one character reference. Many of the work referees have worked with the tutor in a teaching environment so they can provide us with a valuable insight in to the way the tutor works with children. The character referee can also help us determine whether a tutor is suitable to work with children due to their characteristics.
All of our tutors are screened very closely by our Tutor Support team.
