There are differences between teachers and tutors; fundamental differences in skills and approaches to learning.
Teachers providing services in schools must have specified professional qualifications beginning with university and then work experience. Private tutors are not required by law to have qualifications in the subjects they teach. Indeed, private tutors can come from all walks of life and generally aim to supplement their incomes with part-time tuition, which is why Albion trains its tutors to deliver a standard of tuition above and beyond your average private tutor.
Indeed, we only work with academic graduates and undergraduates achieving 2:1 levels or more as we believe any tutors passion is reflected in their own results and personal drive.
What are the main differences between teachers and tutors?
A qualified teacher or professor is not necessarily a good tutor. A teacher is used to working in a classroom environment, often in a lecturing style, and rarely works one to one with students. A tutor is one to one friendly, adaptable, open to new learning styles and designs materials to help individuals to reflect their learning styles. In this respect, Albion believes that a private tutor should complement school work and teacher assignments, but we thoroughly believe that teacher and tutor require very different skills sets and approaches to learning.
A professional tutor brings personal tuition which is why we see such remarkable academic improvement in students with personal tutors.
Britain’s oldest — and poshest — exams are to be scrapped, leaving traditional prep schools facing financial oblivion as one expert warns they belong to “another era”.
The Common Entrance exam, which tests 12 and 13-year-olds on up to 11 academic subjects, including maths, science, history, modern foreign languages and classics, is to be phased out in its current form within about 18 months.
