If you have a teenager, it’s pretty much inevitable that you’re going to come up against exam stress and GCSE results at some point, and it’s quite possible you’ve considered getting a tutor for your child.

Carey Ann Dodah from Explore Learning has more than 20 years experience in education. She’s also been a school governor, and chair of the PTA, and has two teenagers of her own, so she gets it. I  ask her to give us her best strategies for effective study, online learning tips, and how parents can navigate educational challenges when we’re worried, especially about GCSE exam results

5:30 - Is getting a tutor really worth it? Why parents aren't always the best people to support their teenagers academically, and the value of a tutor.

12:45 - How do we help our teens transition to adulthood? 

16:40 - Why maths and English are the most useful subjects to have a tutor in.

21:30 - What's the most important thing a child will learn from a tutor?

22:45 - Is it ever too late to get a tutor for GCSEs?

25:30 - Is there ever a reason NOT to get a tutor for our teenagers?

31:00 - How to choose a tutor for your teenager. More about how Explore Learning works and the benefits of working with experts who help you find the best tutor for your teen. 

Explore Learning offers maths & English, SATs, 11 Plus & GCSE tuition both online and in person at UK centres. Check out their website for more information.
