Find a private Tutor

Considering a private tutor?

Whatever the reason and whatever your level, finding the right tutor can help  improve your skills and knowledge. Superprof has a variety of subjects and tutors so you can find the lessons that most suit you! 

Tailored Lessons

Whether it’s homework/exam help or general tutoring classes, a tutor will put you, the student, at the centre of the learning process.

Private lessons can mean faster progression and tailored lesson plans. It is, therefore, easier to find your place and assert yourself in this context of learning. You will gain confidence, trust and above all, benefit from the right expertise. A tailored schedule will also help you to organise your lessons and develop autonomy over your learning.

A tutor can fill in the gaps of your learning or simply provide basic knowledge about subjects you have always been interested in!

An Experienced Tutor and Pedagogue

Every student has particular needs. An experienced teacher and pedagogue will be able to restore the taste for a subject when difficulties could create a mental block. The fear of Math, for example, is very common.

Have you always been interested in science but never knew where to begin? Do you want to learn a new language but have a fear of speaking? Or are you passionate about music but never learnt those favourite guitar chords? 

A private tutor can make assessments on your level and knowledge base and propose personalised support to make your lessons a success. Whether for one-time help or weekly classes, an experienced tutor will bring out the best in you, building constructive momentum to reach your potential. 

Over the years, academic support and private lessons have become essential for many students. Contrary to popular belief, they are not reserved only for students who are failing.

The Cost of Private Lessons 

Private lessons can vary in price. On Superprof the average price for a lesson is £25 but there are also cheaper options available. Each tutor sets their rates at a price that reflects their experience and qualifications. 

Most tutors are also open to a reducing their price for multiple lessons.

Looking for cheaper lessons and want to avoid travel costs? Why not consider online lessons. 

Online Lessons

Tutors who offer tutoring lessons are usually equipped to teach remotely

Online classes can be a great way to find a tutor quickly. Superprof has a large community of tutors that provide lessons for all ages and levels.

Online lessons can be a cheaper and more convenient way to learn. No need to travel or limit your tutor search, with Superprof you have thousands of diverse profiles at your fingertips.
