How Group Tuition Benefits You


There has been a significant rise in the number of people opting for extra tuition for their children in recent years and at Firefly York we appreciate that this support can come at a substantial monetary cost.  Our service aims to allow students to obtain first class tuition without it breaking the family bank.   By running tuition in small, collaborative groups, we are able to keep costs lower, whilst ensuring that students obtain excellent teaching as well as plenty of 1-1 time with their tutor.


Another benefit of small groups is that many students find working with others easier and less stressful than one-to-one sessions where they sometimes feel put on the spot. The group tuition model allows students to build upon each others’ ideas and in turn, to develop their views which also cultivates their social skills.

In short, with our style of tuition, not only do students learn from their teacher, but they also learn from their peers, constantly developing their knowledge and skills.
