Who's the Dork?
Our dorks are university students, from the UK's top 5 universities, who have received an A* at GCSE level in any subject they wish to tutor. Ultimately, they are a relatable support medium in which tutees can rely on for an insight in to the methods and strategies that have been used to achieve academic success. These guys know what it is to succeed academically, being amongst the countries best and they are now willing to share their experience and knowledge.
What age students do we provide tutoring for?
We provide tutors for GCSE and A-Level students, although younger students can be accommodated.
Where did the idea come from?
As students ourselves, we were able to take a subjective view of the current exam process and realise that GCSE's are not necessarily a test of intelligence, rather an indication of how hard you are willing to work in order to organise yourself and memorise the required information. With the right approach, any individual could prepare themselves in a way that the process of winning marks becomes a much more manageable task, and who better to pass on these revision and exam strategies than students who have employed the same tactics and succeeded.
Why not use a conventional private tutor?
We are not looking to undermine the everyday private tutor, but we feel it is important to realise that private tutors and school teachers are obligated to teach their student the information, whereas at Dorkaid, we look to utilise experience to teach the techniques which are required to be successful in revision, coursework and exams. Why overcomplicate the process. In addition, our tutors will be of similar age to their tutees and therefore more relatable, breaking down those potential communication barriers. And all that aside, it is cheaper that a standard private tutoring session!
How can you rely on the quality of our Dorkaid tutors?
As mentioned above, we don't look to overcomplicate the process by teaching content, but rather offering support by teaching strategies which have been used to succeed in exams. Our Dorkaid tutors have all achieved the highest grades in these exams and are therefore the most qualified in their fields to offer the support required. Also, all of our Dorkaid tutors are provided with a guide to make sure they are approaching the session in the right way.
