FIVE last-minute exam tips

Here are a few last-minute exam tips to help GCSE, A-level and international students with your exams. Let me know if they work for you – or if you’d add any more 😊

Hiring an online tutor from the UK

Our job is to make hiring a British tutor in the UK as easy as possible for international students. We are currently working with online tutees in Dubai, The USA, China and Europe who are working towards UK exams like GCSE and A-levels as well as IB, IGCSE and International A-levels.

Many of our international students are ex-pats looking to return to the UK, or students who move around a lot.

We work to support their learning, answering questions they may have from taught lessons in international schools. Exam practice is also popular!

Our aim in to support you wherever you are – we are even on hand in-between taught sessions via Skype for troubleshooting on specific topics.

Our sessions are clear and focussed but also supportive and friendly. We are flexible around our student’s lives, fitting in around busy schedules – and time zones! If you are an international student, or perhaps a British ex-pat looking for extra help for your child please get in touch to see if we can help.
