A levels, IB and Pre-U  |  Years 12 and 13

Sixth form can be a challenging time for a teenager, with university choices resting on the outcome of the results of just three subjects. Students need to combine a strong grasp of the subject both factually and conceptually as well as having secure understanding of exam technique for the specific boards and subjects they are studying.

Our team of A level tutors have extensive experience of helping students through their exams. They focus on where the gaps are working in a way that works for the individual teenager.

When results come out in August, our tutors are just as interested in results and achievements as you and your child!

University preparation

Sixth Form is also the time that students make decisions about university.  Applications are finalised and students take exams for courses like Medicine and Law and interviews for Oxbridge take place, usually in the autumn term of Year 13.

It can be a stressful time for teenagers contemplating their future at the same time as preparing for exams… and also for their parents.  We have a number of private tutors who can advise on the choices available as well as prepare students for entry to UK, US and European universities.

A level tuition

A levels are broken down into two separate examinations:

1. End of year 12: AS levels

AS level + A2 level = A level

2. End of year 13: A2 levels

For more information on AS and A2 exam dates, click here.

Fleet Tutors’ A level tutors can offer valuable support with tailored KS5 tuition. Home tutoring at this level can be very valuable as students can feel under a lot of pressure to achieve high grades. Our A level tutors offer support and guidance for every subject available at this level. There are roughly 80 AS and A2 level subjects available following the curriculum. Our KS5 tuition covers the full range of A levels from the more traditional subjects carried on from Key Stage 4 to the ‘applied A levels’ such as business or tourism.

What qualifications do our A level tutors have?

Fleet Tutors believe that KS5 tuition can only be successful if our A level tutors have the relevant qualifications and experience. All of our A level tutors must hold a degree in the subject they tutor at 2.1 or above or a teaching qualification recognised by the General Teaching Council. At this level all of our private tutors hold a degree or teaching qualification specialising in one or two individual subjects.

What experience do our A level tutors have?

All of Fleet Tutors’ A level tutors are required to have relevant teaching or KS5 tuition experience. Many of our A level tutors are qualified teachers; others are experienced tutors with high class degrees. All must have up to date knowledge of the curriculum and the A levels.

How can you trust our A level tutors in the safety of your home?

All of our private tutors hold Enhanced Disclosures (DBS), or Enhanced Disclosure Scotland’s which we check very closely. The DBS 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.
