Bright Young Things Tuition in St. Albans

  1. Bright Young Things provides academic tuition to students across the country, including St Albans and surrounding areas in Herts. Our tuition centre in central St Albans offers small group lessons to students across the age and ability range with a focus on 11+ preparation in English, Maths and Reasoning for local independent and selective schools, as well as 13+, GCSE and A level revision courses and Oxbridge preparation. We specialise in teaching the core subjects; Maths, English and Science.

    We only recruit experienced tutors from top universities who have a passion for their chosen subjects and a great track record of working with students in their teaching area. We know our small team of tutors very well and have worked with them for a number of years. 
    We believe in a traditional model of teaching where the key emphasis is on the interaction between the teacher and student. The environment in which the teaching takes place is as important as the teaching itself. Therefore keeping our class sizes small allows us to focus on each child’s individual learning needs, while still giving students the chance to interact with other like-minded peers. The combination of inspiring teachers and room for discussion and exploration with other students boosts pupils’ confidence and provides an excellent base for learning.
    Our teaching aims to diversify a child’s learning experience and encourage students to go beyond the textbook and become self-motivated, independent learners.

    Areas covered

    • Sahera, Mum to Kasim (12) and Aaliya (11), St Albans

      They were really friendly, the first thing they did was an assessment which I thought was good, and they seemed positive they could help and we got encouraging feedback from the tutor. After the first session the children came back happy, they really liked their tutor, it’s important to me that they get on and the tutor really is lovely, really on their level and engaging, positive and gives just enough homework. She always gives feedback to me and she’s happy to spend time chatting about their progress. I’m even considering using them for maths, that’s how pleased I am with the service.

    • Fiona, Mum of a 16 year old son, living in London

      We have been using Bright Young Things since April 2014 when we realised how much our son was struggling with lessons and revision. He is dyslexic with a processing disorder. BYT organized tutors in 3 sciences, English, History and Geography over the Easter break and the summer term. They were brilliant. The tutors understood how his mind worked and taught him in a way that made things seem so much simpler. They were able to break the lessons down into information he could access. After only 8 hours of tutoring his Chemistry mark climbed from 3% in his February mock to 63% in the final exam. He stopped being afraid of exams and rose to the challenge. Staff have been very helpful in organising appropriate tutors and we receive a monthly written report on his progress, in addition to the verbal feedback after each session. We continue to be very happy with their service and highly recommend it to worried parents!

    • Claire, Mum to Katie (15), Hertfordshire

      Katie has been going to Bright Young Things for GCSE English tuition since she started back at school in September. They do individual as well as group tuition, and the session Katie goes to has two other students there as well. She really enjoys it, which is surprising as like most teenagers she’s not keen on school and learning, but after her 1st visit she was quite enthusiastic. I think partly because the tutor is young and easier to relate to and it’s a small class, she goes very willingly and so far seems to be enjoying it, and has even recommended it to a few school friends.
