Trusted Year 9 Tutor

Year 9 is when most schools and students begin focusing on their GCSEs, but until the end-of-year exams, most of Year 9 will be like Years 7 and 8. However, there are several factors that students going into Year 9 should keep in mind. First, you will start choosing your options, and you will also need to focus on excelling in your core subjects. The subjects you choose will have everything to do with the courses you can pursue in university, so you must choose wisely.

Year 9 can be a turning point for many students and is also a time when most need guidance to ensure they pick subjects that will support their carrier paths. It’s also an excellent time to start preparing for your GCSEs. The exams might be two years away, but the time will fly by.

Whether your child is struggling to keep up with the increased homework or is working to consolidate and solidify their core subjects, having a Year 9 tutor will come in handy even in helping the student with early preparations for their GCSEs. Spark Tutoring has amazing Year 9 tutors that will immediately connect with your child and help them stay on course to achieve their dream career.

We have years of experience as leading tutors in the UK, specialising in English and Maths. We use a bespoke tutoring approach tailored to the needs of the student and their learning method. Using this approach, we have worked with thousands of families and delivered exceptional results each time. Besides helping students unlock their full academic potential, we also provide mentorship by equipping the students with the tips and the knowledge they need to become successful even after school.

Our tutors can also help students in picking suitable options. Our tutors have been a part of the same curriculum and can provide the students with invaluable insight on which subjects give them the most opportunities and best chances of success.

  • My son has loved working with his tutors from Spark. They are friendly, consistent and great role-models for my boy. He has improved at school, but the biggest change has been his attitude – he is more driven and focussed on his goals. Highly recommend!

    JAMIE, LONDON
  • My daughter worked with Sarah from Spark Tutoring through her GCSE and A-levels. She would not have achieved the results she did without them. They built a real friendship, and Sarah become a role model through those challenging years. Thank you Spark!

    THOMAS, WOKING
  • My 12 year old daughter worked with an online tutor from Spark Tutoring and it was amazing. I was reluctant at first, knowing how restless my girl can be, but her tutor was engaging and energetic – making the lessons fun. It also made things much easier for my wife and I, having someone else involved to ensure she was meeting all her remote-schooling requirements.

    MICHAEL, BRISTOL
  • Every interaction with Spark was worthy of 5-stars. From the easy booking process to the simplicity of weekly lessons and automated payments, working with them made my life easy and my child happy! What more could a parent ask for?

The easiest booking process around

Here’s how it works:

Book a tutor

You book.

Book online in under 3 minutes or schedule a call with one of our education specialists.

Find a tutor

We match.

We work with our team to match the perfect tutor to your child’s needs.

Meet a tutor

The magic happens.

We schedule in the first lesson and send you all the details you’ll need by SMS and email.

In the first lesson, your tutor will do an assessment on your child to see how they are doing against the standards of the national curriculum, and build a learning plan to work towards moving forwards. They will send you a copy of the assessment outcomes by email and share some goals that they will be working towards with your child.

We encourage weekly lessons for the best results – but ultimately the length, timing and frequency is up to you.

You are free to communicate openly and directly with your tutor about scheduling and timings. All payments will be through Spark Tutoring – details will be provided after the first lesson and only if you are happy to continue.

After every lesson you will receive feedback from your tutor by email, outlining what was covered and how your child responded in the lesson. Every 10 lessons your tutor will provide a detailed progress report, keeping you in the loop at all times!

The perfect Year 9 Tutor for your children

If you’ve tried to hire a tutor in the past, you know it’s not an easy process. But at Spark Tutoring, the experience is different. Here’s how it works:

Book online by filling out an online booking form. The form will take under three minutes to complete. There’s also the option of scheduling a call with an education expert from our team. We will get in touch and discuss your needs and those of the student.

We work with our team of experts to match you with the perfect tutor. We consider your child’s method of learning, their challenges, weakness and needs when finding the right tutor. This saves parents the trouble of finding the right tutor on their own. It also increases the chances of finding the right tutor since we’ve matching tutors for years.

We will schedule the first lesson. We will send you all the details by email or SMS. First impressions are essential, and we want your child and the tutor to have the best start possible. After the first session, we recommend scheduling at least one lesson every week. But the final decision of how many lessons and how long each lesson is will be up to you.

During the first lesson, the tutor assesses the student to determine their strengths and weaknesses. The assessment has a critical role in building a strong learning plan that works towards attending to the needs of the students. After the evaluation is complete, the tutor will share the outcome. We will also share the goals we would like to work towards with your child.

Whatever level of your child is working on, we have the perfect Tutor for them near you!

Frequently Asked Questions:


When is a good time to start tutoring?

There is no better time than now! Remember, tutoring is not just for students who are struggling – it is for all students! Even the brightest of students will be driven to achieve their full potential with the support of a Spark Tutor.

We have students of all ages working with our tutors; from early Primary school to A-levels. The best time to start working with a Spark Tutor is todayso book your first lesson in under 3 minutes here.


Does my child really need a tutor?

Every student will benefit from the support of a Spark Tutor, because we offer so much more than just academic support.

Our tutors have been selected for their ability to motivate and inspire the young people they work with. Your child will grow in confidence, do better at school and gain a life-long love of learning.

A Spark Tutor offers more than just help for those struggling at school – they are mentors that will help your child realise their potential.


Does your tutoring follow a set program? What is the lesson structure?

Every lesson we do is tailored around the unique needs of the student. There are no pre-set programs or courses we follow – it is personalised one-on-one learning, targeting exactly what your child needs every week.

Your tutor will have full access to our resource centre – which is packed with thousands of worksheets, textbooks and learning programs. They will use these as they see the need arise in your child.


What ages do you support?

We work with all Primary and Secondary School age students from Reception (Ages 4-5) to A-Levels (Year 13/Ages 17-18).

How do I get started?

Getting started is easy. Book online in under 3 minutes or speak with one of our team members and we will get it all organised from there. We work with our tutors to match your child up with the perfect tutor for them and send you all the details for the first lesson. No payment details are required upfront – we will check in with you after the first session to see how it went and you can submit payment info then!

Are your tutors qualified?

All our tutors go through our unique training and accreditation process and have passed all required reference and child safety checks (DBS) to work with us.

We do not require our tutors to be degree qualified to work with us, and in most cases are younger, University age tutors that excelled in school themselves. We actually find students respond best to this age group of tutors; they can build real authentic relationships and the school curriculum is fresh in the tutor’s mind, creating a mentor-mentee relationship rather than one of authority from a teacher.


How do I track my child’s progress?

You will receive feedback by email after every lesson letting you know what was covered and how your child engaged with the content.

Every ten lessons your tutor will also provide you with a detailed progress report, providing an insight into their development, where they are still struggling and what they are working towards over the next ten lessons. This progress report can also be shared with their classroom teacher or any other family members.


Do you offer any discounts?

We provide a 5% discount for any family that does 2 or more hours of lessons per week. This can be with siblings, multiple subjects or multiple lessons.


How do we find the right tutor?

Getting the match right between student and tutor is so important. When you book, we ask you a number of questions about your child to get a better understanding of both their academic needs and personality. We then match these with one of our tutors that we believe will be a great fit for them.

Obviously, the best test of any tutor is meeting them face to face, which is why your first lesson is covered by our 100% happiness guarantee – so if you don’t think the tutor we have selected for you is the right one for your child, there is no charge and we will work with you closely to find a tutor better suited to them.


Where does the tutoring take place?

Our lessons happen in your home or online in our online classroom, allowing your child to connect with their tutor face-to-face from any device at any time.

How do I pay?

We have the world’s easiest payment system. You simply submit your debit or credit card information once after the first lesson and you are charged 24 hours after each lesson occurs.

We’ll send you a notification shortly after each lesson with the scheduled charge and a receipt 24 hours later after the payment has been processed.

There are no contracts, prepayments or minimum commitments in partnering with us.


Do I have to have lessons every week?

Growth is all about consistency, so we encourage weekly lessons for best results.

However, this is not a requirement in partnering with us. If you need to miss a lesson every now and then, no problem – just let your tutor know at least 24 hours before a scheduled lesson and there will be no charge.


How long do the lessons go for?

Most lessons go for an hour, with many families opting for 90-minute lessons. Ultimately the length of the lesson is up to you – just chat with your tutor and let them know how long you would like to work together.

When can I start?

It usually takes us 2 to 3 business days to get everything lined up, so a good rule of thumb is to book now to get started next week.

We will keep you updated on any potential delays, and of course let you know by SMS and email once we have scheduled the first lesson.


How much does it cost?


Do you offer a free trial or lesson?

Your first lesson is covered by our 100% happiness guarantee – so if you aren’t happy with the tutor we match with your child then there is no charge for the lesson.

This allows you to meet your tutor completely risk-free, but it also means that your tutor gets rewarded for their hard work when they do a great job. It is win-win for all!
