Key Stage 3 Ages 11- 14

This is the in between stage, past Sats tests and pre GCSE. However, any catching up can be covered at this age as well as preparation for future study. Groundwork done at this time will reap benefits. Many pupils at this stage still have a zest for learning and learn quickly. A tutor can keep this enthusiasm going or kindle it.


We cover all exam boards, AQA , Edexcel, OCR, IGCSE. The core subjects, Mathematics, English and Science are popular for tuition and we provide a range of tutors for these. Many tutors specialise at this stage. However, some tutors can cover more than one subject. Other subjects are also available. See our comprehensive list of subjects. Please ask for details. Regular study at this time starting as soon as possible in the year will give the student the best possible chance to keep ahead. Tutor Bureau provides tuition at any time in the year and we realise that some families prefer someone prior to exams. Tutor Bureau acts quickly to get a tutor to you when you need one.

A Level

The leap from GCSE to A level is large and it is at this time that many families see the value of a regular tutor coming to their home. Helping the student become an independent thinker and learning to organise time are skills tutors instil. Exam skill techniques can be improved. The subject content needs to be learned and reinforced and having a reliable, approachable tutor is invaluable.
