Key Stage 4: IGCSE Tuition

Home-School Tutoring offers effective and supportive private tuition for students taking IGCSEs.

High standard IGCSE tuition

Pupils looking for addition support with IGCSEs can count on Home-School Tutoring for help with IGCSE exams, speaking tests or coursework.

Our tutors firmly believe learning can be an enjoyable experience. Through support and encouragement our tutors aim to alleviate exam pressure and build confidence.

Studying IGCSEs

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) provides a course of study and certificate very similar to a GCSE.  Originally created for students outside of Britain, the IGCSE is increasingly becoming the choice of course for many British schools and individual students. The GCSE and the IGCSE are viewed equally by universities and employers.

Home-School tutoring provides private tuition for all IGCSE students, whether they are looking for:

  • exam preparation assistance
  • tuition for exam retakes
  • assistance with developing study skills/IGCSE coaching
  • coursework help
  • ongoing support, including pre-IGCSE


We have tutors available for all IGCSE subjects including:

  • maths
  • science (whether for double or combined science awards or biology, chemistry and physics)
  • English literature and English language
  • French, Spanish, Italian, German and other languages
  • history
  • geography
  • computer science


Studying another IGCSE subject? Please still contact your Area Advisor to see if we have a tutor who can support you.

Peace of mind

All our tutors are DBS checked and have provided confirmation of their relevant qualifications as well as suitable references.

IGCSE private tuition can take place in your home, in the home of the tutor or in a venue which is mutually agreed.

Changing IGCSEs

All our tutors ensure they are familiar with changing syllabuses, whichever IGCSE exam board syllabus you are following, including:

  • Cambridge International Examinations (CIE)
  • Edexcel (provided by Pearson)
  • AQA (until the final re-sit opportunity in November 2016)

Tutors are happy to familiarise themselves with any exam board syllabus as required.

Tailored tuition

Our qualified tutors will tailor local IGCSE private tuition to your son or daughter’s needs.

Tutors can use a specific approach or focus on a target area of the chosen IGCSE subject. Tutors work with parents and pupils to determine the priorities for lessons. As requested, our tutors also liaise with school or college teachers.

A pupil may require private coaching for IGCSE Maths specifically to run through past exam papers and focus on IGCSE exam preparation.

Another pupil may be lacking in confidence and require home tutoring to build self-confidence and develop effective study and revision skills.

Other pupils may require support to complete IGCSE coursework.

Every pupil is an individual, which is why lessons are tailored to their unique requirements.

The IGCSE timetable

IGCSE exams usually take place in year 11 of secondary school during the summer. However, the IGCSE exam process is, of course, much longer than just a couple of months. Mock IGCSE exams and coursework begin in year 10 – and the necessary foundations for IGCSE success are secured during key stage 3 by the end of year 9.

Your son or daughter may only require IGCSE private tuition during the IGCSE revision period, to cover mock IGCSE exam papers. Or he or she may benefit from IGCSE tuition at the beginning of year 10 and/or preliminary tuition during year 9. Key stage 3 tuition in a pupil’s chosen IGCSE subjects, especially the core subjects of maths, English and science, can help ensure students hit the ground running.

A personal local educational service

Home-School Tutoring provides a personal education service which works alongside students, parents, teachers and schools to offer extra IGCSE help and to encourage and build on existing foundations.

Contact your Area Advisor today to find you a tutor who can cater for your specific needs and help your son or daughter enjoy making progress.

IGCSE exams can be a stress-free and confidence-building experience!
