Private tutors in Sheffield are in demand more than ever. A recent report has revealed that over 40% of state school teachers have offered private tuition outside of their main job. The tutoring market is estimated to be worth over £2 billion for pupils aged 5 to 18. Currently across England and Wales over 25% of state educated children have received some form of private tutoring. The report also stated that Maths and English were the most common subjects tutored, closely followed by the sciences and languages. In more recent years a more specialist type of tutoring has become very popular. Parents have requested tuition to help their children with the 11 plus test to help them gain a place at grammar school, whilst help with GSCE exam preparation has also been on the rise.
