Private Tutors – a personal service

We will introduce you to the right tutor for your child. We work with experienced private tutors from prep school to graduate level, offering after-school, online or residential services. All are personally known to us, highly vetted with impeccable academic backgrounds and a passion and enthusiasm for teaching. Each introduction is made after a detailed consultation with a member of our team who specialises in the age group you need a tutor for, so you can be assured that the tutor we introduce will be perfectly matched to your child. We introduce private tutors within 48 hours of your request.

    Private Tutors

    Sophie Taylor Barthorpe, our Director of Tuition, explains how we introduce the right private tutor for your child.

  • A perfectly matched private tutor

    Years of experience have confirmed to us that successful private tuition relies on so much more than the cold steel of academic expertise. Effective tuition relies on the tutor’s natural ability to mentor, generate trust and in many ways become a role model for the student. We never introduce a tutor we would not like to have in our own house.

    Each tutor introduction is made after a detailed consultation with your family. Our tuition consultants each specialise in a particular age range and know each tutor personally, so you can be assured that the tutor we introduce will be perfectly matched to your child.

  • Highly vetted and with a proven track record

    We are highly selective about the tutors we work with. Every one of our stable of tutors is a consummate professional; with hundreds of hours of experience under their belts. More importantly they are highly vetted, each with a current valid enhanced DBS and carefully checked references. Around 50% are full time tutors and 35% qualified teachers. All are known to us and handpicked for each student. They also have an infectious passion for their subject and, above all, the empathy and care to connect with your child. As a rough guide, we work with about 10% of the 1,000 or so tutors who apply to work with us every year.

    We take a personal approach - it could be that your son or daughter needs a role model, more a writer or actor, or perhaps someone more sporty to fire their passion for learning. In all cases, the match will also be precise in academic terms, down to the level of experience with the school entrance exam, or national exam board. We take care to get to know each tutor personally – from their teaching style and the type of students they work best with, to their hobbies and interests. This allows to recommend exactly the right tutor for your child and is key to the success of our tutor placement service.
