OUR GCSE SUBJECTS

WHAT WE OFFER:

With schools now closed and support out of reach, students preparing for next year’s exams are already at a disadvantage. Especially in their core subjects.

Without a pass in English Language GCSE, students can’t move on: if they don’t pass the exam the first time, they have to re-take until they do – a scenario that stunts personal progress and affects self-esteem.

eastuition supports students in this academic vacuum to ensure they stay on track with a crucial subject.

All too often exam boards report that whilst many students are able to relay information in a formulaic way in English exams, they don’t know how to interpret deeper meanings, analyse linguistic techniques or offer independent thought to secure the highest grades. With eastuition, students develop, practise and apply these skills.

Most tuition companies offer a ‘blanket’ approach to improving skills, reacting to differences in equal ways. At eastuition we start by recognising students as individuals and responding to them in different ways.

eastuition matches strategies to the student’s individual learning approach. Once we’ve established preferences in an approach to learning, we tailor tuition to bring out the very best in a student’s abilities.

At eastuition, we develop skills, deepen understanding and focus on exam techniques so the student is thoroughly equipped for whatever the question asks.

All support is specifically geared towards Exam Board specifications – AQA, Edexcel and OCR. As an English examiner for AQA with over fifteen years’ experience, Sarah-Jane provides comprehensive coverage of subject content from an examiner’s perspective, combined with expertise and effective teaching strategies.

English GCSE counts, for a lot. Whether you want to go to university, enrol on a vocational course or find a job, a good grade in English will help you get there.

The study of literature at GCSE is more than just reading a book and knowing what happens. Students need to show they can interpret intention and peel back the layers of meaning to reveal the writer’s craft.

eastuition equips students with a thorough understanding and critical appreciation of all set texts so they can approach the literature exam with confidence.

With a variety of activities and tasks, novels, plays and poems are brought to life taking students on an exciting journey into the authors’ worlds. With renewed enthusiasm, students will soon be able to interpret and explain what lies beneath the words on the page.

eastuition students learn to tackle the importance of language, structure and form whilst exploring the wider social purpose and cultural precepts that inform the text. Students are shown how to move from general commentary to micro-analysis providing clear evidence in support of their own interpretations. With past paper practice, discussion and analysis of top-band responses, students discover how to succeed and excel.

Maths matters. Not just for GCSE, but for life.

To think logically or solve problems, a mathematical-mind makes all the difference. Whether you’re checking your change in a shop, altering quantities in a recipe, or trying to fathom mortgage rates, strong maths’ skills will make your daily life easy.

That’s why you have to pass maths at GCSE, or keep trying until you do. GCSE Maths will set you up for years to come.

But why do we need Maths when there’s calculators and Google?

Despite the availability of calculators, we still need to know what information to use in the first place. All too often exam boards report that many students lose key marks because they don’t know what they need to put into their calculators to work things out effectively.

What that comes down to is weak basic skills.

Which is why at eastuition we build skills from the ground up – brick by brick – ensuring students have the strongest of foundations to support them.

And Maths doesn’t stop at GCSE. If you decide to study beyond sixteen, mathematical skills are key in lots of other subjects too – Sciences, Technology, Psychology, Sociology, Geography, Economics, and even Music. Maths is everywhere!

With renewed enthusiasm and deeper understanding, students will soon be able to make things add up in ways they never could before.

Trying to build language skills alone is a tough ask and unless students are supported in all the right ways, progress will stop.

But not with eastuition.

Not only is our Spanish Tutor, Sarah-Jane, an experienced teacher and examiner but she’s also an interpreter who’s lived and worked in Spain, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru. Perfecto.

why eastuition for GCSE Spanish support?

Language learning requires a drip-feed approach, constant and gradual nourishment in order to flourish. Without close support and expert guidance, students will find it hard to direct their studies in a way that will keep them on top.

eastuition‘s one-to-one Spanish tuition will help students to build enthusiasm for language learning whilst encouraging consideration of the language in a broader context so they can tackle the exams with confidence.

Spanish may appear easy to learn but it’s tricky to master. Unless you can conjugate verbs or manipulate tenses, progress will be slow. We begin by ensuring a firm scaffold for understanding grammar so students can learn the patterns, avoid the pitfalls and express themselves effectively. Once the grammar’s clear, everything else makes much more sense.

eastuition clears up what’s unclear and helps students move beyond the blocks. During a tuition session, all four skills are practised and students are encouraged to communicate in Spanish, regardless of mistakes they may make. Only then can confidence grow.

Learning a language requires dedication and discipline that can be tough to balance alone – with eastuition, a little help goes a very long way.
