What makes our tutors special?
Our tutors are all bright, young, confident and highly qualified - most with a degree or postgraduate degree in their subject. Several are teachers or specialists in their field. Above all they have the ability to teach in a way that is inspiring and creative and adapts to the needs of each individual child. The fact that they have recently felt the pressures of their own exams gives them the humility and empathy that is so often missing with school masters who have been entrenched in their positions for many years.
How does the tuition process work?
Tutors have access to on-going training and each tutor receives a full briefing before meeting the child. Time and resources are precious and the tutors work quickly. After their initial introduction they report back to us and, if the relationship is working, they continue. Results are as important to us as they are to the child and her parents. All our tutors keep a detailed record of what has been covered in each tutorial and this is sent to the parent at the end of each month.
How do we select tutors?
We receive many applications but only select tutors who demonstrate that they really want to inspire others to learn. Each tutor undergoes an in-depth interview and we check academic, personal and employment references. We also ask for a recent Enhanced CRB disclosure. All our tutors are paid using a system that is fully HMRC compliant so the parent has no involvement in the tutor's income tax or National Insurance. Tutors are insured and receive full statutory benefits.
