The Firefly Approach

Tutors at Firefly Tuition York are fully-qualified, DBS checked, outstanding English teachers who are highly experienced in Key Stages 3-5.  Using our years of experience in Yorkshire classrooms and private tutoring sessions, we have helped students, over many years, to obtain excellent academic results, frequently making exceptional progress.  We do this by ensuring that lessons are both fun and personalised to our students’ needs. See the testimonials page here to read about their experiences.  

My son has made amazing improvements in his grades after a year of tuition with his tutor who was a very cool lady who my son got on well with. This was great as he previously wasn’t enjoying GCSE English.  The learning with his tutor was fun and productive with a strong individual focus and I’m thrilled with his GCSE results. This was money very well spent!   - Sarah, York

Individually, our tutors are creative and dynamic people who are as passionate about English as they are helping students get the very best out of their learning experiences.  As a result, Firefly tutors aim to be relaxed, friendly, approachable and keep in close contact with parents and schools to maximise the collaborative opportunities taking place in each student’s world.   We strive to ensure that parents and carers feel well-informed and feel comfortable enough to be able to approach us regarding all aspects of their child’s learning and progress.

We want students to get to know us, feel at ease and be motivated in sessions. Because young people greatly value their time, we want each session to feel focused, useful and manageable. Students should feel that coming to sessions with Firefly Tuition feels valuable to them and most importantly, worthy of their time.
