COMMON TUTORING QUERIES

You've Got Questions, We’ve Got Answers

YOU ASKED, WE ANSWERED...

Do you offer 11+ / 7+ / Common Entrance assistance?​

Yes, we do offer support for the 11+ / 7+ / Common Entrance exams.

Do you offer tutoring services for other exams?

Yes, we offer support for Phonics screening and both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two SATs

Is the tutoring one-to-one or with a group?​

We offer one-to-one learning in your home as we feel children learn best in their own home environment where they feel comfortable, confident and safe. We also offer group sessions of a maximum of three pupils per group.

Where are the tutoring sessions held?

The tutoring sessions are held in your home.

What subjects do you offer tutoring in?

Please see Our Services page for more information on this. Our key subjects are Maths, English, Exam Preparation, and Phonics.

Who are the tutors?​

We are all teachers who have worked within the Ealing community. We know the schools and expectations well. We are former and current teachers. We are professionals from a wide variety of disciplines and some of us have specific expertise in a variety of subject areas and key stages. Some of our teachers are heads of year groups, heads of key stages as well as subject leaders. We have teachers who have experience in both state and independent schools within the Ealing area.

How often do you recommend tutoring takes place to see the best progression?

We advise that 11+ preparation is optimised in a two hour lesson once a week and for younger children a one hour lesson once or twice a week. 

How long will it take to see improvement in my child’s progress?​

We normally suggest a minimum of ten sessions to see significant progress. 

Are the tutors with Ealing Tutoring Ltd DBS checked?

Yes, every tutor has an up to date, fully enhanced DBS check. This is part of our Safe Guarding Policy which you can view here or on our Legal page of this website.

Are you flexible with tutoring days and times?​

Yes, the teachers we work with provide us their availability before we match them with a student. 

​​

What if I need to cancel a lesson?

Please contact us here to discuss engagement and our full terms. Every effort will be made to re-arrange a cancellation request (we request two weeks notice where possible), however, if a lesson is cancelled within 24 hours of the lesson taking place (excluding weekends and bank holidays) the client must pay for the missed lesson. 

How can we know about previous pupil experiences?

Please read our testimonials here to find out what our students and parents have to say about us.

What training and experience do the tutors have?

All teachers have a fully Qualified Teacher Status. Experience levels vary per teacher and include key stage leaders, heads of years and SEN specialists from and in a selection of Ealing schools. 

Will I get the same tutor every time?

This can only be guaranteed by block booking ten lessons in advance. 

How are sessions tailored to the needs of each student?

At Ealing Tutoring we don't follow a regimented teaching scheme that restricts our teachers from using their professional judgement and experience. Our teachers are experienced, trained and skilled in making each lesson appropriate and personal to your child. The teachers will do assessments with your child and work with them in each lesson to fill in any learning gaps in a stimulating and engaging way. 

Are you a member of The Tutors’ Association?

Yes, we are proud to be members and follow the Association’s Code of Professional Conduct. You can find out more here.
