Oxbridge Entrance Tutors
With their worldwide reputation for academic excellence, Oxford and Cambridge are generally considered to be among the most challenging universities in the world at which to secure a place. To ensure your child has the best possible chance of success, Simply Learning Tuition’s team of education consultants and Oxbridge Tutors provide tailored support through every part of the application process.
Working with the support of an expert Oxbridge tutor ensures that applicants shine at every stage of the process, and will equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to impress the admissions team. At Simply Learning Tuition, we have helped hundreds of students win places at Oxford and Cambridge – our success rate is 60% for acceptance at first choice colleges, compared to the national average of 16%.
How can Oxbridge tutors help?
Tutors will guide your child through the process of writing an exemplary personal statement. This means a statement that doesn’t just ‘tick all the boxes’ – something Oxbridge admissions tutors see straight through – but instead brings out your child’s natural character, passions and refers to all their wider engagement beyond their sixth form academics. For Cambridge applications, tutors help students make the most of their SAQ (Supplementary Application Questionnaire, used to supplement the UCAS information).
One area of Oxbridge applications which can seem particularly formidable is the infamous interview. Effective tuition will help your child fine tune their interview skills, and strengthen their self-confidence so they can achieve their full potential and impress the admissions teams. Another key contributing factor to success is achieving a high score in the subject admissions tests, such as the MLAT at Oxford (Modern Languages Admissions Test). The standard required for these tests is significantly higher than A Level. The tutors we work with have years of experience of preparing for these assessments, and know how to help students raise their level to excel on the day.
All the tutors we introduce are Oxbridge-educated, and therefore have first-hand experience of the application process. Moreover, many have themselves been on the interviewing panel. This gives your child an unparalleled insight into how best to approach the Oxbridge application process, and arms them with the tools and confidence to succeed.

"My application to Oxford was quite a daunting prospect but it is now the proudest achievement of my life. Thank you for all the help"
Milly, Oxford Placement
I have to acknowledge what a huge part Simply Learning, and more specifically, you, Omari, Tadhgh and Ellie, played in getting me to where I am! I cannot express over email quite how grateful I am, but suffice to say that you guys went above and beyond what an average tutoring agency would ever do, in terms of education and emotional support! My one-on-one sessions with you to tweak my personal statement and the many hours that the tutors put in to perfecting my interview technique and improving my very sub-par maths skills made the world of difference. I am sure of it. A huge, huge thank you to you and your team. You guys are simply fantastic.
