Juggling Work and your child's at-home learning? We can help!
For thousands of families, the coronavirus pandemic means parents and guardians across the country are having to juggle being full-time teachers as well as carers. Tutor Doctor is here to ease the pressure off parents and give you peace of mind that your children are in safe hands with a personalised online tutor supporting them with their educational needs outside of school.
Here at Tutor Doctor, we’re here to assist you through this challenging period and so we’ve put together some suggestions for parents and students, based on where they are in the academic programme, the best way to keep studying and make sure they get ahead of the game.
Struggling with at-home learning?
Your children should be receiving work and assistance from your school. We understand, however, you and your family maybe struggling to adapt to this new way of learning. Whatever the year group, Tutor Doctor can help. Whether it’s providing that little extra boost that they need to thrive in a home-learning environment or making sure they are challenged and engaging with thought-provoking material, we’re committed to being by your side. Whatever the need, we will ensure that through your free online consultation, we will match your child to the best tutor with a tailor-made programme to achieve your goals.
Cancelled Summer Examinations
As you were probably aware, GCSEs and A-Levels have been cancelled, which has left many families unsure about what it means for their children’s future. Although the grades will be formulated by combining mock exams, assessments and homework assignments, you may feel that they don’t represent your children’s ability and the work they would have done had the exams not been cancelled. At this point, the most viable option for your children would be to enter the one-off Autumn exam sitting. Understandably, having not worked over the past few months, your children will only have a matter of weeks to prepare for these exams, effectively starting again having lost momentum since Spring.
We believe it would beneficial for Year 11 students to continue studying for Maths and English over the coming months to give them the best chance at achieving the highest grade possible, as these qualifications will be valuable assets for future employment. It is important to remember that both the grades formulated by the teachers and the results of the Autumn exam sitting will stand, meaning your children have an excellent opportunity to bring their A-game at the beginning of the next academic year. Continuing to study subjects that your children wish to continue into further education will allow for a smooth transition into A Level study, especially as your children will likely not have engaged with the subject material for almost six months. Moreover, you don’t want the first exam you ever sit to be an A Level! Be sure to get in contact with Tutor Doctor to find out how we can support you in a variety of subjects. Let’s be honest, it will give your children a productive way to spend their time stuck indoors!
For students who were due to sit A levels this summer, who either do not have a university offer or whose predicted grades (as per UCAS application) are lower than offers received, it may be worth considering taking these in the early Autumn sitting next academic year and applying for a place in 2021. Universities will be working to be as flexible as possible given the current situation, with some offering potential candidates the opportunity to begin their courses at a later start date.
