GCSE, iGCSE and MYP Services

Our tutors help students mature and flourish

During their GCSEs, iGCSEs or Middle Years Programme, students are expected to take a more mature attitude to their learning, as schools place a new emphasis on independent revision and study.

Some students really thrive when encouraged to work more independently and will go into their exams with confidence, but many others may not feel sufficiently prepared. This is where private tuition can play an important role.

Past roles and experience

Expert tuition designed for your child

All tuition with Ivy Education is designed around each student and tutors can efficiently address topics that have not yet to fully understand, as well as giving specific, exam-based guidance, both of which can be a huge confidence boost.

We have many highly qualified and experienced GCSE, iGCSE and Middle Years tutors, specialising in a range of subjects. Furthermore, many of our tutors provide expert support outside of the core subjects areas, so we are delighted to be able to help students with all aspects of the curriculum. We can also cater for the IB Middle Years Programme, with tuition targeted at the specific needs of that exam.

Core Subjects:

  • SCIENCE – Single, Double or Triple Award

In the run up to the exams, our tutors can also provide students with tools that will have a significant impact on their independent work, such as study skills and exam technique.

Other subject areas include:

  • ARTS

Exam boards

The five GCSE exam boards in the UK are AQA, CCEA, Edexcel, OCR, and WJEC. Schools may use some or all of these across various subjects. Our tutors are experienced across the five boards and are also well-versed in the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP).
