Tutors repeatedly tell us that we are the best agency in London.
We currently have around 240 tutors on our books. Most of them are in their late twenties and have a wide range of skills that encompass interests such as sports, music, theatre and travel. Some tutors are Masters and PhD students; others are writers, freelance journalists, charity workers, entrepreneurs or actors. Some tutor as their career; others combine their tutoring with part-time, or full-time work. The one thing that unites all tutors is their passion for education and their desire to use their knowledge and experience to support and spur on the students they work with.
We are asked to arrange tutors for children of all ages: from very little ones (2 or 3 year olds) to 18 year olds in their last year of school. Increasingly we are getting calls from university students and adults who are looking for help with their academic or personal studies.
The majority of requests we deal with is for tuition on a weekly basis - either after school or at the weekends. The tuition may be to give a student general support or to work towards a specific exam, be that a public exam or a school entrance exam. Over half terms and holidays, parents ask us to put in place blocks of tuition - this could be in London on an hourly basis, or residentially, where a tutor stays with the family; we also receive requests for long -term residential tuition whether in the UK or abroad. Increasingly we are being asked to support students who are out of school so we mirror a school timetable for them so they don’t fall behind with their work.
