Courses 5 day courses that focus on core topics within the GCSE syllabus and some 'Stepping up to A Level' session to help pupils with the transition. Lessons take place at the same time each day and with a maximum of 6 pupils per class there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions from the tutor and get tailored support.
They are from £12 per session and you can find them here - https://www.mytutor-groups.co.uk/courses-home
We are running revision sessions on top topics to help refresh knowledge and brush up on some of the trickier areas, including "GCSE Maths: Tricky Questions" and "GCSE Physics: Exploring Space". Some of the topics will be around more non-academic content to help teens prepare for uni, including "Personal Statements and Looking Towards Uni, from a History Student". Sessions are one hour each, open to everyone and run weekly.
They are free of charge and you can find them here.

7. What does each course cover?
You can find the 'Topics Breakdown' for each course under the course names.
8. Who is teaching each class?
We have 19 of our most experienced tutors teaching each of the subjects for the full duration of the course. They've each received hundreds of positive reviews in the past, have taught hundreds of lessons on our platform and schools trust them to support their pupils.
9. What platform do you use to teach the class?
Lessons will be taught using Zoom - the tutor will share their screen and work in the MyTutor lesson space. The tutor will use resources (like past paper questions, diagrams and quizzes) specific to this course and make the lesson as hands-on and interactive as possible.
10. How interactive is each session?
Sessions are very interactive as tutors will be asking questions throughout and students can respond either by speaking directly to the tutor or through the chat function if they prefer. Tutors will be hosting quizzes in each lesson which students can participate in if they wish.
11. What safeguarding measures are in place?
All sessions are recorded and each of our tutors has had an enhanced DBS check.
12. What if the session isn't working (technical problems)?
Before each session, our tutor and operations team will test out the space and make sure that everything is working. If we run into any problems, our friendly support team are on-hand to get everything working in the session.
13. Can I contact the tutor in between sessions with questions?
If students are looking for extra support alongside the group lessons, you can get in touch with a member of our tutor experts team on +44 (0) 203 773 6024 to arrange 1x1 lessons.
14. Will the students all be of a similar level?
We’ve recommended the level the student should be working towards on each of the course pages. Where students might be working at slightly different levels within the subject, asking questions will enable the tutor to stop and clarify any particular areas individual students are struggling with.
