If your child is about to start their A Levels or is preparing to take an A Level exam, we have some helpful insights you need to know. First of all, an A Level course is nothing like the GCSE and will be considerably more challenging. The good news is, with the right info and support, your child can ace any A Level course. We’re going to share everything you need to know, including how to find the best A Level tutor.
A Level stands for ‘advanced level’ which gives you a good indication of how difficult it will be. Students usually work towards achieving their A Level over two years. It’s typical for a student to take three or four A Level lessons in the first year of sixth form. Then in the second year, most will only continue with three A Level lessons so they have more time to study for each A Level exam.
The shift from GCSE level to A Level is huge in terms of difficulty. Many students get caught out and surprised, expecting it to be a gentle jump. What’s more, teachers will not be hand-holding students anymore and chasing work that is due ahead of an A Level exam.
A Levels brings an increased level of independence which you need to be prepared for and make sure your child is too. Some kids thrive on this newfound taste of adulthood, whereas others take more time to adjust and may see it as an opportunity to skive and hang out with friends instead of using free periods for studying. Don’t worry, we’re going to cover organisational skills later. 💪
A Level exams happen over two years. At the end of year 12 (AS level) your child will sit an exam and then at the end of year 123 (A2 level) they will sit another exam which will test content from both years. If it sounds hard, that’s because it is.
There is a lot riding on these exams. You won’t find as much coursework involved or assessed in A Level subjects. Any A Level lessons with non-exam assessments will only make up 20% or less of your child’s final grade. That’s why nailing the exams is crucial.
If your child is still deciding what GCSE subjects to take, this is important if they plan on applying for an A Level course later. Requirements can vary between different schools and colleges but generally speaking your child will need the following:
For many kids, they benefit from A Level tuition right from the start. As we mentioned, the jump from a GCSE exam to an A Level exam is more like a vertical rock climb rather than a jog up a hill.
If your child struggles with being organised or planning their study time you should consider getting external support. This person could be you, but it’s likely been a while since you faced A Levels, if that was your chosen path.
Or you could enlist a specialist A Level tutor. By choosing an A Level online course tutor, they will be able to guide your child on the best study practices and create a plan together.
By finding an A Level online tutor, your child and their chosen tutor can work collaboratively on shared docs and save your probably already stressed kid travel time. This valuable time saved can then be dedicated to studying.
Any and every A Level course can require tutoring. That’s because every kid is different and there will always be students that fail at every single A Level course each year. The trick is to catch any signs that your child is falling behind in one of their A Level lessons early on, or even better, prevent this from happening altogether. 👍
While we get plenty of students who need A Level tutoring for physics and maths, we have parents turn to us for help on every A Level course. You already know where your child’s strengths lie and probably have an idea of which A Level lessons they could use a confidence boost with.
A Level private tutoring is more efficient than studying alone or in study groups, although studying alone is essential and study groups can be beneficial if you find the right one. We’re not saying you need an A Level tutor 100 percent of the time. Your child will need time to reflect on concepts and revision alone and studying with peers is helpful in some cases too.
Here are our top reasons why getting an A Level tutor for your child is the icing on the cake, and how it will increase their confidence faster than any other study method and have them master their A Level course with ease.
An A Level private tutor will have been through the process themselves already. They know their specialised A Level course/s inside out. This will give your child the advantage of hindsight and prepare them for what to expect and how to reach their goals as a result.
If you find your child an A Level online tutor it means precious time is saved by not travelling to an A Level private tuition agency. The majority of students feel more comfortable in their own home too as an added bonus.
By searching for an A Level tutor online, you can literally take your pick of the top A Level tutors available. Face-to-face tutoring limits your choices to those nearby. While there could be some awesome tutors in your town or city, you are guaranteed more options online.
By choosing A Level private tuition, your child will get the undivided attention that they deserve. A private tutor can identify potential trouble spots for your child and focus on these. This also saves time by not going over material your child is already comfortable with.
A Level tutors understand the frustration and dedication that goes into studying for an A Level exam. They want to make sure that the blood, sweat, and tears will be more than worth it (and hopefully avoid the tears along the way).How do I find a good A Level tutor?
There are plenty of A Level tutors out there, so how do you find the best for your child? Here are some essential skills and prerequisites to look for in an A Level tutor, no matter which A Level course you are looking to cover.
There are other aspects that will be important, especially if you are looking for a long-term partnership. You will want to match the right A Level tutor to your kid in terms of personality. This doesn’t mean you’re looking for a new friend for your child, the fewer distractions the better!
However, it does help enormously if your child can relate to their tutor and respect them. That’s why you should always look for an A Level tutoring school that offers a free trial.
A Level tutoring rates vary wildly depending on a number of factors:
Paying for an A Level tutor is all about future-proofing your child’s success. Once they finish their A Level course they no doubt want to enter university. If they can achieve their goals now, it will open up more doors and give them the chance of getting that dream job (even if they don’t exactly know what that is right now).
Our expert tutors have some advice for A Level revision based on questions we receive regularly from students and parents.
How much time you need to revise will depend upon how much effort you’ve put in during the year and how hard you found the content. If you feel like you kept up with everything and had no significant issues then some students find that six weeks can be adequate, but that is the minimum we see that most students need to feel comfortable. 😊
The longer you give yourself, the calmer you can work through everything and the more practice A Level exams you can complete. Ideally, leave at least a few months for revision and longer if you are taking more than three A Level lessons.
The reason that leaving ample time is important is that just reading over your notes and books isn’t enough to solidify the information in your brain. The first thing you need to do is to plan a study timetable so you can be sure you have time to revise everything in detail.
You need to factor in breaks and days off so you can relax and let your brain process everything. A good revision schedule will tell you how much time you need to complete your A Level revision.
Depending on how you learn, flashcards and mind maps are often useful. So is writing down what you have learned and taking new notes while you’re revising your books and notes. By not just passively absorbing the information, your recall will be much better.
That’s why practising A Level exams is so important. A Level online tutoring specialists will be able to provide guidance on A Level revision and give your child access to more A Level exam practice.
Your child will end up with a pile of notes, books, and online docs all relating to one A Level course. Organising study material online, in one area is very beneficial.
Our dedicated A Level online tutors will provide your child with homework and exam papers to practise. Your child can feel confident that they have the right material and depth of content to set them up for their A Level exam. All of the steps they need to follow will be online, in one place.
