What makes our approach different is simply the level of care that goes into finding the right private tutor for your child. We spend a lot of time speaking to you to make sure we introduce private tutors who will suit your child’s academic goals, but also the learning style that’s likely to suit them best.
For example, if a child is struggling to engage in any form of formal education, we’ll find a private tutor adept at building confidence and re-engaging their love for learning in more fun and lateral ways.
Equally, for a particularly bright child about to take a difficult entrance exam, we might find a private tutor who can help them hone their exam technique so they do their intelligence justice come exam day – and without them feeling their wider knowledge is being stifled.
We also represent only the very highest quality private tutors. We’re known among private tutor circles as being hard to be represented by, and the level of experience we require is very high. All our private tutors have seamless academic qualifications right back to GCSE. And only when we truly believe we’d be happy for a tutor to come to our own homes to teach our own children do they make it onto our books.
So often, clients tell us it is these extra details that make the difference. It is certainly a reason we find ourselves working for the same families for years – helping one child through their education from first years to university. Then doing the same for their younger siblings.
The first thing we do is have a conversation with you on the phone or in person, depending on what you prefer. That conversation will be with the member of the SLT team who specialises in your child’s age group and the type of private tuition you’re looking for.
Within a couple of days we recommend a selection of private tutors from our books. We normally recommend about three private tutors, and we will have a conversation with you about each one.
We then organise for your child to have one lesson with your chosen tutor. We check in to make sure all went well. 99 times out of 100 it does, but if you’re not happy we try a new private tutor until we find a fit you’re completely happy with.
In addition, by being a client of ours, you have access to all the rest of our expertise. We often end up being our clients’ go-to sounding board for anything they’re worried about – from what prep schools to visit through to how to prepare for SATs.
One of the things we’ve always prided ourselves on is the level of care we take when adding private tutors to our roster. The private tutors we look for are highly qualified, highly experienced, confident – and natural mentors who your child will grow to like and trust.
At a basic level, all private tutors are highly vetted with enhanced DBS checks, and all references are always followed up. In terms of academic qualifications, private tutors we recommend will have at least one degree from a Russell Group university, and 30% of tutors are qualified teachers.
The final all-important layer is experience. While some of our private tutors are in their early 20s – which many students often like – you will never be faced with a university graduate with no experience. Instead, all our private tutors must have 100+ hours of experience before they go onto our books. We have subject-specialist tutors. We also have tutors who are specialists in the specific challenge your child is likely to be working towards – whether that’s preparing for 11+, a specific school entrance exam, GCSEs or Oxbridge interviews
This experience makes such a big difference: it enables a private tutor to be able to adapt their teaching style very quickly to build a rapport, and to zero in on what will make the biggest impact on your child’s learning journey.
Yes. As well as offering private tutoring in London and across the UK, we regularly organise online tutoring and residential tutors for families living all over the world. We can also organise for a tutor to come and join you and your family during school holidays, wherever those holidays take you.
