Our position as one of London’s most highly regarded private tuition agencies is built on our unique approach.
We introduce tutors whom we can personally recommend. We spend as long as it takes to understand your specific requirements and challenges, and guarantee each introduction we make. This approach puts your needs at the centre of everything we do, and is guided by our expertise and experience.
While Simply Learning Tuition’s main goal is to introduce you to passionate, inspiring tutors, we understand that a course of private tuition is only a small, yet significant contributor to your child’s educational excellence.
We take pride in offering advice and assistance for every part of your child’s academic journey. From choosing a school or University, selecting the correct A-Levels, or meeting the challenges posed by ADHD or dyslexia, we will support you at every turn.
We take education seriously. Our founder Nathaniel McCullagh was a successful private tutor for 10 years and sits on the Tutors’ Association panel for Continuing Professional Development. He is a fervent supporter of raising standards in private tuition.
Leading London Day Schools including Connaught House and The Moat, and many of the UK’s most prestigious boarding schools such as Uppingham and Oundle have pointed parents towards SLT. We are trusted not just to introduce tutors who will prepare new students to pass entrance exams, but to provide key skills and approaches to education which will allow them to thrive at these demanding schools.
We are proud to have helped thousands of students reach their academic goals. Our selection of case studies and testimonials demonstrate our history of achievement, and we hope that you will find them useful.
Private Tuition is not essential! However, we all learn in different ways, at different paces and your child’s desire to genuinely understand something – rather than just accept it at face value – may conflict with the ability to access the school curriculum effectively.
How do tutors help?
We believe that many problems stem from a lack of confidence. An ineffective teacher, illness or a learning difficulty (or even just dealing with the pressures of growing up) can reduce the child’s confidence so that they no longer enjoy school in general, or studying in particular. This can lead to frustration and behavioural problems. Individual tuition bridges this gap by getting to the root of the problem. Working together, the tutor and the child can re-build the child’s self esteem and restore their will to try again.
The tutor’s job is to restore your child’s self-belief and quickly get them back on the track to academic success. They will also show them how assert themselves in class: to ask questions when they are interested and to seek help when they don’t know the answers. The tutor makes them realise that they already know much more than they are aware of and will show them how to apply that knowledge for maximum impact.
What else can a good tutor do?
As well as the academic essentials, the best tutors will pass on essential life skills: including motivation, time management, organization and self-confidence. They will help your children to see beyond their immediate frustrations, giving them the tools they need to succeed in exams and beyond. With school and university entry becoming increasingly competitive, a holistic approach that tackles all aspects of the child’s education is essential. Parents can get the best results from their child’s tutor by working closely with them.
