Engineering Tutoring FAQs

Why study General Engineering?

Right Now, there is a severe skills mismatch in the nation and the workforce.

The "engineers" of today are computer scientists, mathematicians, and mechanical engineers who build things with code, math, and machine tools, respectively. Yet soft-skilled workers like welders, machinists, electricians become harder to find every day.

The General Engineering degree will prepare a student for any type of engineering by providing foundational knowledge spanning across all engineering disciplines from mathematics to chemistry to physics.

More than anything else, this program will provide students with a common intellectual foundation in the sciences and general problem-solving skills that will allow them to be a part of any industry.

What university degrees is General Engineering useful for?

It is mainly useful for mathematics & science, in comparison to a major in engineering where the degree is specific to fields like electrical engineering or civil engineering. A general engineer can have knowledge in many different areas of specialisation without necessarily choosing one.

This field of study covers all aspects of engineering, from civil and structural engineering to agricultural and industrial engineering.

The further degree gives a solid understanding of all engineering disciplines and enables graduates to be more employable and competitive for recruiters.

What careers can studying General Engineering lead to?

A person with a General Engineering degree can work in law and patent regulation, safety management, product design/development and manufacturing, engineering consulting services, aerospace (as a master engineer or principal engineer), automotive (various positions), or even banking.

Think of general engineers as general contractors who are suited for almost any construction project. General Engineers must be able to read blueprints as well as think like an architect or engineer on larger projects such as bridges and high-rises. They often have licenses in more than one speciality because they sometimes work for firms that specialise in a particular field or for those making bids to the government.

How does Engineering help with Mathematics?

Engineering can cover various topics that don't necessarily all have to do with your specific field of engineering.

 You could study "General Engineering" and take "Mathematics" as a major because just about everything has some mathematical element; many Engineering Students take GCSE maths and A-Levels in Maths, and then do a degree in Engineering.

Engineering is all about solving problems using math, physics, chemistry, and all the sciences. As long as one can understand the concepts, one can apply them to any discipline.

How expert General Engineering tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

Does it matter if the tutor is near me?

No, it doesn’t! It’s all done online whenever and wherever you are. All you have to do is pick your ideal mentor and speak to them to arrange the best time for you to have video lessons.It doesn’t matter at all if they are miles and miles (or kilometre and kilometre) away from you!

How many Engineering tutors are available to give private lessons?

We currently have over 25 Engineering Tutors with academic and professional experience specialising in a wide range of topics from GCSEs to postgraduate support, and everything in between.

How much does a private Engineering tutor cost per hour?

Tuition is priced according to level:

1. School level: For Primary school, Secondary and Higher Education prices start at €25/hr

2. University level: For Undergraduate and Postgraduate tuition, prices start at €35/hr

3. Professional level: For Chartered Qualifications and Admissions Test tutoring, prices start at €45/hr.

The average price per hour ranges based on the tutors’ experience, expertise and student’s level.

How much is an Engineering tutor per hour in London?

The average tutor price per hr is £40/$53/€45 per hour depending on a teachers’ experience and students’ level of study. This is higher than other areas in the UK due to the increased living costs that come with London life.
