Exam coaching by a professional tutor can be an enormous help to students preparing for exam entry. At Tutor Doctor Colchester we specialise in one to one home tutoring to help students prepare for any standardised test.
We have over 15 years’ experience in coaching and personal tuition around the Colchester area covering all tests from SATS through to common entrance exams, GCSE's and A levels, plus a range of adult qualifications.
Our key objective is to empower the learner to achieve the best of their ability in an exam situation. Not all students thrive under pressure, so at Tutor Doctor we do more than help with exam preparation, we teach study skills and techniques which ease the pressure and boost confidence.
Our tutoring for exam preparation is completely tailored and designed according to the student’s specific and unique needs relative to the exam to be taken.
All home tutoring supplied by Tutor Doctor Colchester is completely tailored to the individual. We can provide home tutoring in preparation for the following exams (plus others not listed)
11+ Exam Tutition
Our specialist 11+ tutors will ensure that your child is prepared to sit their entrance exam with confidence. We find children perform and with more confidence when they are familiar with the format of the exams. With our handpicked tutors, they will focus on achieving a broader and deeper understanding of the key examination areas of English and Maths, plus Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal reasoning where required.
Places at the exceptional Grammar Schools in Colchester are in very high demand and competition is fierce, so it helps your child to have a solid grounding in these exams to maximise their potential for success with speed and accuracy.
Common Entrance Exams
11+ ISEB Common Entrance: Based upon two or more components from the 11+ exam syllabus, Common Entrance examinations for the numerous selective entry schools are taught by experienced tutors, many of whom have themselves been through this same process.
GCSE / IGCSE
Our subject specialist tutors can assist a student struggling to absorb the breadth of content required of today’s GCSE syllabus, or extend the learning of a high achiever through their own, greatly enhanced subject knowledge. Step by step, module by module, classroom reinforcement can be best achieved in the home under the guidance of an experienced tutor. Covering all subjects and with a range of vocational experiences to enhance academic learning, we can tailor a programme to meet each students individual needs.
AS / A2 Level
This step up in academic content from GCSE to A level can prove challenging for many students. Our experienced tutors can help to bridge the gap. With learning reinforcement, techniques to help improve memory retention, contextualising the required learning by sharing their own experiences with the student, they can jointly develop revision tools that meet the needs of each individual. We also provide academic coaching to high achieving students seeking to attain top grades for University entrance.
