Our A Level Tutors
Sixth Form is an exciting time for teenagers. They are taking subjects they want to study, encountering new academic material, and thinking about the next stage of lives. It can also be a daunting period, however. A Levels are significantly more demanding than GCSEs, requiring in-depth understanding of difficult topics and concepts. The rigorous examinations also determine which university your child will attend. Our outstanding A Level tutors guide students through this critical point in their school career, allowing them to shine in their studies. Whether you are looking for an A Level Maths tutor or someone to help your child with their English coursework, our tutors have the knowledge, passion and patience to make a real difference.
All of our private A Level tutors are fantastic communicators with faultless academic records. Many have taught at leading independent schools. Others hold first class degrees from Oxford or Cambridge. Highly qualified and experienced educators, our tutors are always attentive to the needs and aspirations of those they teach. At Hampstead and Frognal Tutors, we know that every student is unique and carefully craft the tuition we provide to bring out the best in every pupil.
We know that our private A Level tutors will never let you down. Our recruitment process is a challenging one, with applicants required to provide proof of their qualifications and experience. We also interview all candidates in person, and ask to see at least two references. DBS certificates are mandatory. Once they have joined the company, our tutors are offered continual training and development opportunities to ensure their standards never slip.
How our Tutors Teach A-Levels
A Levels test how well students retain knowledge, grasp difficult concepts, communicate their understanding and cope under time pressure. Our private A Level tutors are experienced at equipping teenagers with the tools they need to excel. Thorough understanding and a firm grasp of the whole curriculum is crucial at A Level. Our tutors quickly evaluate the strengths and weaknesses
of their pupils, and target problem areas. No issue or uncertainty is swept under the carpet, and our tutors encourage teenagers to ask questions and to speak up if they are feeling confused.
Exam technique remains crucial at A Level. Students must learn how to revise effectively, how to approach questions, how to manage their time and how to structure their answers. We help students master exam technique. Our A Level Biology, Chemistry and Physics tutors know the Science exam boards inside out. They know the pitfalls of practical exams, and make sure to highlight the different assessment criteria for their students. Similarly, our A Level Maths tutors know which questions flummox exam candidates, and always prepare their pupils well in advance.
There is more to learning than exam technique, however. If your child has chosen to take a subject at A Level, it is likely they find it engaging and fun. At Hampstead and Frognal Tutors, we nurture the different interests of our students, promoting intellectual curiosity and academic enthusiasm. Our A Level tutors are passionate about their subjects, and seek to inspire those they teach. We know that teenagers perform best when they are happy and motivated, and are proud of the fact that our tuition is never dry or dull.
If you live outside of London, or overseas, we also offer tuition via Skype. Hundreds of families around the world have found this to be a fantastic alternative to more traditional teaching methods.

I just wanted to let you know that we have received Tom’s A-level exam results. Tom did extremely well. A-level grades were Maths A, Physics A, Chemistry A, English A. We have contacted James and Phillipa and let them know the results. Thank you very much for your support, and of course to the tutors. We’ll contact you again next term as we will probably need support for Tom’s sister Jenny as she is about to start her GCSEs.
