Real teachers make the best tutors

You don’t want just anyone tutoring your child. There are currently no regulations or industry standards to ensure the right qualifications and background checks are in place to become a tutor in the UK. Using only real teachers brings experience and peace of mind to both parent and student.

Best placed to align instruction with classroom teaching and reduce confusion of learning styles, teachers are trained to give your child the right help.

Twice as effective

Independent studies show real teachers are twice as successful as non-teachers at delivering effective tutoring sessions to produce the best results.

Subject matter experts

Fully trained in the subject and methods to assess your child’s precise needs, teachers bring credibility and expertise to an unregulated industry.

Access to latest resources

Regular changes to exams mean only real teachers are up to date with all areas covered for the current year and have access to the latest resources.

— FAQs —

Still have questions?

If there’s anything we’ve left unanswered, take a look at our FAQs for more information.

My Child
Right now, we cover students from year 4 all the way up to year 13.
In the Introduction Call with the tutor, you will have a chance to discuss your child's needs, so tutors can tailor the session for the student.
Tutoring Sessions
Each session lasts for one hour.
If you’re unsure, book in one session to get an idea about the speed in which areas are covered, and with the help of the tutor, how many sessions are needed for your desired outcome.
You’ll receive an invite for the session via email or you can view upcoming sessions by logging into the product. When you are on the dashboard on the site you can click on the link to start your session, you’ll be taken to the online classroom where the tutor can present using our interactive a whiteboard which the tutor and your child can annotate over. The student will be able to see the tutor at all times and visa versa and speak directly to one another.
For the first few sessions we recommend you be in the room monitoring the session. (Coming Soon - we will also in the future record every session and your child can revise from these if they have a test or exam!)
As all of our Tutors are teachers, all session happen evenings and weekends, but you will be able to arrange the sessions during your introduction call to suit you both.
Don’t worry! The session will continue until both the tutor and the student have left the online classroom, you will not be charged for the additional time (within reason).
Tutoring sessions do not expire, if you have some left at the end of the academic year they are easily rolled over to the next academic year.
Payments
As all of our Tutors are professionals, we ensure they are paid to make sure that sessions can go ahead.
Yes! All you need to do is give us a call on 0203 308 9286, we will process your payment over the phone.
My Booking
You can book your introduction call within 1 day of booking. After this call you are free to start your sessions immediately, please discuss this directly with the tutor on the introduction call.
Sessions can be easily rescheduled using your online dashboard. We ask both the parent and tutor to give 24 hours notice in order to cancel or rearrange, though your tutor may be able to accommodate short notice emergencies which can be requested through the dashboard.
It's easy! All you need to do is click on "Rebook Tutor" button in the top right corner and confirm the number of session you would like to book.
If your child does not require any more tutoring we will refund the remaining session for you. To request a refund just contact us on 0203 308 9286.
Tutors will wait in the tutoring room for 10 minutes after the start of the session. If you think you will be later than this simply log into your account and request to move the session back 15, 30 or 60 minutes and give an overview to the tutor on why you can't make the session. Tutors are usually reasonably flexible if you communicate with them (the earlier you can do this the better).
