How to find the right Cambridge tutor for you




...an effective teacher is someone with a kind-hearted manner, a passion for the subject you teach, and an interest in getting to know the learner. This is what you'll find at Tovah's Tutoring Company Ltd.

Consider what you'd like to learn


It is important to know what you'd like to learn. So, when looking for the right online tutor in Cambridge, make sure the one you choose has knowledge and experience with the skills and/or subject you'd like support with.


At 'Tovah's Tutoring Company Ltd' our online tutors are registered teachers who have taught NCEA in high school. Tovah, in particular, has 10 years+ experience as a high school teacher in Drama, Dance, English, Media, PE and Digital Technology. She has developed her own programmes which accommodate learning needs, cultural diversity and student interest.

Tovah is a proud New Zealander and loves visiting Cambridge to see friends and visit the amazing parks/playgrounds with her family. She has taught in a variety of schools in Auckland, Hamilton and Te Awamutu.







Consider programme flexibility


It is important that your Cambridge online tutor is able to provide you with options for learning. If you need extra support outside of your schooling, then your Cambridge tutor should have a variety of exercises and activities to build the areas where you need support in. A personalised programme will benefit you greatly.


'Tovah's Tutoring Company Ltd' offers personalised programmes that suit your learning. First, we set goals together and then alter the programme to ensure we achieve those goals together. It is important to us at 'Tovah's Tutoring Company Ltd' that each learner can take the skills they practice with us and use them in school as well as in their everyday lives.

We work on things like structuring a formal paragraph and how to critically analyse things, so you can write paragraphs in any subject and even critically analyse in any exam you take.





Our Cambridge online tutors have experience working with learning disabilities, language barriers, and social anxiety. They are warm and patient and will teach at a pace that works for you. It is important to us that you are able to learn to work independently in the subjects you need support with.


Consider how you learn


We all learn differently. It is important that your Cambridge tutor is aware of the different ways in which you learn best. You might learn best out in the fresh air or at night or after a decent meal. You might learn best with goals and challenges or with loads of encouragement. Make sure your Cambridge tutor knows what works best for you and ensures it is accommodated into their learning programme with you, that way, you gain the most out of your learning experience.


The great thing about online learning is that it can take place anywhere that there is an internet connection. This means you can learn in the place where you feel safe and relaxed. When you book in with 'Tovah's Tutoring Company Ltd' you will be able to choose between a variety of times that suits how you learn. We are also available for online tutoring during school holidays, school hours and after school hours.






Consider your barriers and how the Cambridge tutor can support you to get through them


It is important to have open conversations with online tutors in Cambridge about what support you need and what seems to be stopping you from retaining the information you need to know. Perhaps it is the learning environment you are in, a learning disability and/or the time of day in which you learn. Social anxiety is quite common and is a huge barrier for a student's learning because they are uncomfortable taking risks around others and can feel judged. Make sure you choose an online tutor that knows how to break through your barriers in a safe way that is at your pace.


The Cambridge online tutors at 'Tovah's Tutoring Company Ltd' are approachable and friendly. They are happy to discuss what areas in your learning are causing you to fall behind, feel unconfident and/or stopping you from retaining information. Our Cambridge online tutors have experience working with learning disabilities, language barriers, and social anxiety. They are warm and patient and will teach at a pace that works for you. It is important to us that you are able to learn to work independently in the subjects you need support with.






Consider the Cambridge online tutor's personality type


Like all relationships in life, professional ones can also have conflicts and issues. It isn't the content taught, but how it is delivered, that allows learning to happen. If you are happy with the person who is teaching you, and you trust them, you are more than likely to learn. This is because learning is a vulnerable thing to do, and it requires focus. If you trust in the person and enjoy their company, you are likely to be focused and present when learning. This happens in school environments too. Lots of students find certain teachers hard to learn from and that it is likely because there is a personality clash. Perhaps the teacher* is too firm, too confronting, too quiet, too closed off and not willing to get to know their students, and this clash stops the student from trusting them and they close off their ability to trust and learn. So, when you choose an online tutor, in Cambridge, make sure you feel relaxed and happy around them.


Tovah has specifically chosen online tutors who are warm, friendly, and relatable to the learner. It is important that all learners that receive our amazing online services feel comfortable and enjoy the experience.

*Note: I am in no way assuming any teacher is at fault. I respect and understand the journey and energy required to deliver teaching programmes and the growth that happens when becoming an effective teacher. What I am doing is simply saying that personalities and ways of interacting can clash between any two people.
