“Educator turned Entrepreneur Seeks Community Venues in North Wales, Cheshire and Wirral”

A Flintshire teacher turned businesswoman is on the hunt for community venues around North Wales, Cheshire and the Wirral following a fantastic response to the launch of her tutoring business “Tutors4GCSE”.

Sharon Hughes, from Penymynydd, left her teaching career behind her last year, having spent many years as a maths teacher at West Cheshire and Macclesfield Colleges.

Her initial plan to offer one to one maths coaching soon developed into a business concept to offer coaching in maths, English and other key subjects to students in small groups. In a recession-hit country, this happy medium between expensive 1-2-1 tuition and “one size fits all” teaching to large groups would, she believed, appeal to parents and students alike.

Having launched her website and marketing campaign over the last couple of weeks, Sharon has been delighted with the response. “Tutors4GCSE delivers to demand,” said Sharon, “so wherever people want tuition, we’ll deliver it within their community. The demand since launching has far exceeded our expectations so we’re now actively looking for community venues to hire for teaching sessions.”

“We’re busy setting up tuition groups in Broughton, Saltney, Hawarden, Connah’s Quay, Mold, Rossett, Upton, Christleton and Ellesmere Port for a range of subjects. Requests coming in are for us to teach a range of ages, which is no problem. We also offer adult tuition, and whether we are teaching eleven year olds, or 30 year olds, our focus is very much on understanding, rather than remembering. I believe this should be the focus for all teaching as it develops deeper, long term learning” said Sharon.
