10 reasons why Phi Tuition is your best choice for boosting exam results:
1. Experts in teaching science and maths
Our extensive teaching experience enables us to communicate difficult ideas and concepts at the right level for our students. All of our tutors have superb teaching skills, university degrees in their academic fields and are DBS checked. Furthermore, they are truly passionate about science and maths. This is how we ensure that our students receive the highest standard of tuition possible, with the necessary depth and breadth required to succeed in their exams.
2. Courses designed to ensure exam success based on the recent changes to GCSE and A Levels
The recent changes to GCSE and A Level exams have been reflected in the design and delivery of our courses. Our efforts are focused on preparing our students for their exams by providing them with the most effective techniques and strategies possible. We ensure that there are no gaps in our students’ understanding and that they arrive at their exams prepared, confident and without stress.
3. Deep knowledge of all examination boards
We cover all the major examination boards (AQA, Edexcel and OCR). By providing our students with extensive exam-style questions, we ensure that Phi Tuition students arrive at their exams prepared to excel. Overall, 63% of our students achieve at least an A or A* in our subjects and, on average, they achieve a grade two levels above what had previously been predicted. Furthermore, two thirds of our students at Sixth Form level have obtained a place at their first choice of university after taking our courses.
4. Comprehensive notes
We provide our students with a comprehensive range of teaching notes, tailored to each module. From the fundamental theory to practice exercises and past papers, our teaching materials are designed with students’ needs in mind. We understand the psychological pressure that exams can have and we teach our students memorisation tricks, self-checking strategies and quick shortcuts that will help them answer their exam questions – not just with the correct solution but also in a timely manner.
5. Innovative teaching techniques
We believe that students do their best when they are actively involved in the learning process rather than being treated as a passive audience. We therefore apply innovative teaching techniques to engage them, such as active learning, peer-teaching and self-correction. Our experience has shown that this helps our students not only to learn more and with greater depth, but to find the lessons more fun, interesting and stimulating.
6. Small group size
Our students thrive because they are given the undivided attention that they need. That is why we limit our classes to a maximum of 8 students, combining the benefits of private tutoring and a collaborative learning environment. All of our students share the same ambition for improvement and success, ensuring effective learning.
7. Delivering value for money
Operating in a lean and efficient way, we are more than happy to pass on savings to our students. We offer excellent value for money for both our students and their parents, without compromising quality. With our simple fee structure, parents and students can rest assured that we will always offer excellent teaching and support at competitive prices.
8. State-of-the-art online tools
We have created our own online interface for our courses – the Nucleus Portal. This allows Phi Tuition students to access their learning materials at any time, on desktop, tablet or mobile devices. Our bespoke tools allow parents and students to track their progress and to check on tutor feedback, whenever needed. All of our sessions are available live online so if personal circumstances are ever an issue then our students can join our classes remotely.
9. Easy-to-access tuition centres
Our facilities are located in the centre of Chiswick and Harrow, respectively, so students and parents spend the minimum amount of time travelling.
10. Modern facilities
Our classrooms are designed to provide a comfortable, safe and inspiring place for our students to learn. Away from distractions, our students work more efficiently and productively in a structured, calm and stimulating environment.
My grades in school have excelled
Laura – A Level student
“My grades in school have excelled and my confidence in facing my A Level exams has been improved. My aim is to study business management at university and having a greater understanding of maths will be a great benefit to me.“
It was the patience and sympathetic approach that made all the difference
Emma – Mother
“My daughter always struggled with maths. We tried many tutors outside school and her grades were still very low. The tutoring at Phi Tuition was strategic in selecting which topics she should really focus on. The topics were taught really thoroughly and in a way that she could understand. My daughter has just passed her Maths GCSE. She is utterly delighted and can now forge ahead with her university and career ambitions. Thank you, Phi Tuition!”
