Tutoring is about building a relationship between child and tutor that inspires a love of learning. We find that this is often easier to achieve when children are comfortable in their own environment. Most of our tuition takes place in the family home around your child’s current commitments.
Tutoring schedules are often adjusted during exam periods to ensure that each child is fully prepared. Some families prefer to schedule more intense tutoring for school holidays when, without the time pressures and exertion of the school day, tremendous progress can be made. We encourage our tutors to approach each assignment with a degree of flexibility in order to ensure that the best possible results are achieved. Our tutors will always advise parents on progress and the most suitable timetable to achieve agreed goals.
We are also able to arrange hourly tuition outside London, subject to a supplementary fee.Scroll down to read more▾
Short term residential tuition offers a more rounded approach that aims to inspire children through a variety of forms of learning whilst the tutor lives with the family. Tuition usually lasts for about four hours a day and is accompanied by other activities that are tailored to captivate the child’s interest. By blurring the line between learning and fun, children are able to derive enjoyment from their studies.
The aim is to improve the standard of work whilst at the same time fostering a more mature attitude towards learning, inspired by a tutor who a child genuinely likes and looks up to.
This system works particularly well during holidays and ensures children return to school with a renewed sense of vigour and determination.
We have a select number of highly experienced full time tutors who undertake long term residential assignments of between two months and three years. They are able to provide a complete programme for children who are not in mainstream education or can work to complement traditional schooling.
This form of tuition is very popular with international clients who wish to prepare their child for education in the UK. We also have a number of high profile clients who choose to educate their children through tuition whilst working away from home. These tutors have lived on tour buses, film sets and in private residences throughout the world. They are able to work in any environment in order to deliver the best education possible for your child.
This is becoming an increasingly popular form of tuition, particularly for international and boarding school students. Online tuition is an important part of the service that we offer but must be handled with care and without compromising standards.
Unlike other agencies, we do not have different ‘online tutors’ who have been through a less stringent application process. We ensure that any online tuition is undertaken with the same ethos as all other areas and with the same tutors. At the root of this is ensuring that a pupil will feel inspired to learn by a tutor who they feel they can relate to.
Our mentoring programme allows students the opportunity to have somebody in their lives to offer advice, guidance and support. A mentor is usually successful in a career that the student is interested in pursuing and has had similar experiences. For many international students who come to study in the UK without their families, a mentor provides a crucial role model and confidant.
We have a select group of mentors who have overcome a range of hurdles in their lives, from learning difficulties to addiction issues, to become successful and happy individuals. For young people in crisis situations, these mentors can often be the first step on the ladder to recovery. Whilst they may reject help from tutors, consultants or psychiatrists, teenagers will often listen to an adult with whom they can identify, and whom they can respect.
We tutor students from around the globe both remotely and in their homes. We help to prepare international students for both school and university education in the UK as well as providing tuition for entrance examinations.
Much of our international tuition is carried out through our online system but we also send tutors throughout the world for short or long term residential tuition.
We work with the best special needs educators in the world and are able to call upon their services at short notice for our clients’ children. Using their recommendations we can provide a tutor with experience in helping students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s, Autism and other cognitive and social disorders.
