      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.

      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.

    • g_content_rows-repeater_items_title
      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.

    • g_content_rows-repeater_items_title
      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.

    • g_content_rows-repeater_items_title
      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.

    • g_content_rows-repeater_items_title
      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!
