Types Of Tuition

We offer four types of tuition: class, home, group and online tuition. The type of tuition you or your child may require very much depends on your individual needs and what you hope to achieve from personal tuition. Some students prefer classroom-style teaching where they are able to interact with other students as well as convey their thoughts and receive feedback, whereas others may benefit from one-to-one tuition at home. 

To help you decide which type of tuition is most suitable for you, below is a summary of the four main tutoring services offered at EducateFirst followed by details of some of the benefits associated with each type of service.
