Delivering highly effective lessons, both online and face-to-face, our experienced and qualified tutors are here to help. Whether that's staying on track with school work, preparing for important exams, or taking music skills to the next level, your child is in safe hands.

  • Face-to-face interaction with professional tutors

    It's natural to feel worried about your child’s progress during this difficult time. We're here to help alleviate your concerns!

    Our professional tutors deliver highly effective and engaging lessons, both online and in their homes. This gives you the best of both worlds, with maximum flexibility as we navigate our way in and out of various lockdowns and local restrictions. Some of our tutors can also travel to your place in the boroughs of Bexley and Bromley, and the surrounding areas.

    There are two key factors that determine the effectiveness of online tutoring: the quality of the tutor and the quality of the online system they use. At The Tutor Surgery, we provide highly effective online tutoring by ensuring the quality of these factors are the highest they can possibly be, both by design and through careful management on a daily basis.

    Firstly, our team of professional tutors are all qualified and very experienced. They are hand-picked by us, and they are specialists in the subjects and age ranges they teach.  

    Secondly, we have developed our very own system for online tutoring. The most important part of the system is the way it mimics real, in-person tutoring as closely as possible. This ensures that our online lessons are just as effective as the real thing. In addition, the system is easy-to-use and technically robust, allowing our tutors and students to focus on what they do best: teach and learn!

      We had great Science tuition from Alex for our daughter, from Year 9 and into Year 10. She wanted to bolster her knowledge of, and confidence in, the three sciences. Alex provided excellent teaching, in a friendly environment, and she developed her Science capabilities greatly. We were very pleased with Alex - he is a 5-star tutor.

      I can not recommend Anja highly enough. My daughter can be quite shy around new people but Anja had her chatting away in minutes. The lessons are suitably stretching yet not overbearing. My daughter is enjoying them and they are proving extremely beneficial, particularly whilst she is absent from school at the moment.

      Anja is teaching my 7 year old son. He is a challenge and particularly at the moment (13wks into covid lockdown) doesn't have much attention span. Anja easily adapts to his current mood and engages him in activities for Maths and English which will spark his interest back into learning and her patience is amazing!

      Rob tutored Maths to both my son and daughter separately and gave them confidence they needed to get through their GCSEs. They both got a B result in the end which was fabulous. Highly recommend Rob he has a lovely patient manner and adopts a working pace that is appropriate to your child's needs.

  • Subjects

    • Maths - proper explanations, real progress

      Many students who aren’t currently attending school are struggling to complete the work that is being sent home by their teachers. The most common reason for this is an underlying weakness in their basic maths skills. For example, solving equations can be tricky if the basic rules of algebra haven’t been properly understood. Another reason is the lack of detailed explanation that would normally be delivered by their teachers at school. As specialist maths tutors, we can easily overcome both these issues via our dedicated online tutoring platform. We take the time to identify a topic that our students are finding hard, and then dig deeper using our assessment experience to find the root cause of the issue. Our unique dual camera online tutoring system ensures that students can easily see and hear a clear explanation of each topic we teach, just like they would if they were at school.

    • English - live support, restored confidence

      Speling is dificoult. Spelling is chalanging. Spelling is hard! This doesn’t have to be true for your child once they’ve been taught all the tips and tricks by one of our specialist English tutors. Punctuation, grammar and essay writing are also likely to cause your child frustration. One-to-one lessons with our experienced tutors will improve your child’s English skills and alleviate their frustration. Our custom-built online tutoring system is also designed to alleviate the normal frustrations of getting connected to an English tutor over the internet. Not only is the system easy to use and technically robust, but we have our own dedicated technical support team to help our students and tutors overcome any issues they may experience.

    • Science - interactive lessons, light-bulb moments

      Just like in maths, learning new science topics is tricky without a proper explanation from a teacher. Our expert science tutors solve this problem by delivering the lesson content required to help your child stay on top of the work they are being sent by their school teachers. Our super efficient online tutoring system allows our tutors and students to continue drawing scientific  diagrams and working through complex equations on pen and paper. This removes the need to learn a new system, like a virtual whiteboard, and ensures that everything can be drawn and learned just as quickly as it would be in a classroom. One-to-one lessons for exam preparation are also easy to deliver via our online tutoring platform. This means we can deliver an excellent combination of topic content, revision technique and exam technique that will help students feel more confident as they approach their GCSE and A-Level exams.

  • What makes us different?
    • Your child comes first

      Your child’s needs are our highest priority at all times, even before lessons actually begin. We understand that a good relationship between a pupil and their tutor is vitally important to the success of the lessons. Our tried and tested combination of “Meet The Tutor” and “Trial Lessons” ensures that a good relationship is established as quickly as possible.

    • Specialist tutors, hand-picked by us

      Finding the right tutor for your child can be time-consuming. We do all the hard work for you by only selecting the very best local tutors to be part of our team. We are not a tutor directory – all our tutors are hand-picked by us. And you won’t find a long list of subjects or ages for each tutor – they are all specialists in their subjects and the ages of pupil they teach.

    • No group teaching, no distractions

      Your child will never have to share the attention of their tutor with others, as we only tutor on a one-to-one basis. This means your child will have greater engagement with their tutor, and will therefore experience better quality lessons.

    • Flexible teamwork, fewer missed lessons

      We understand that family life can be complicated. In line with our core value of putting your child first, our tutors keep their timetables as flexible as possible. If you need to reschedule a particular lesson, we will always do our best to accommodate your needs. And your child will rarely need to miss a lesson due to one of us not being available – we are a team of tutors who can share each other’s workload.

    • More parental involvement, better pupil progress

      We ask all parents to collect their child at the end of each lesson in order for the tutor to provide feedback, such as what’s going well and what issues have been identified. This is important so that parents fully understand how they can encourage and support their child throughout their tutoring, especially with the tasks that have been set between the lessons. In addition, we periodically invite parents to come along 10-20 minutes earlier than usual in order to provide a more detailed review and progress report.

    • More affordable tutoring

      The majority of our new pupils come through word-of-mouth recommendation, and we like to say thank you to parents who recommend us through our unique referral scheme. Every time you recommend us to someone who then starts trial lessons with any of our tutors, you will get a free lesson. There’s no limit to the number of free lessons you can receive, so you could get all your child’s lessons for free if you recommend us on a regular basis!
