When is the Right Time to Get a Tutor for Kids Over 11 Years Old?

Many parents worry about when to start thinking about getting a tutor for their children over the age of 11. In my experience, it's best to wait until the fourth year. This is because the benefits of tuition can be felt not only for the exam, but also for your child's overall progress, confidence and self-awareness. Working with a tutor can be a great way to help your child reach their full potential. A tutor will get to know your child well, and since you are hiring them and participating in their sessions, a strong communication triangle can be established.

I have over 30 years of experience in tutoring children aged 11 and older, covering school entrance exams, math and English up to GCSE level, as well as more general learning support. In this blog, I've answered 5 common questions that I've heard during my time as a tutor. If your child is struggling with their English skills, it may be worth finding a tutor who can help them with language development, vocabulary building, spelling practice, developing oral skills and improving comprehension. For many parents, finding someone they trust to help support their child's learning and development can be a huge relief - but this depends entirely on the tutor they choose.
