How are we different?

Only qualified teachers

You may find it difficult to assess the quality of an unqualified tutor, that’s why all 18,000+ of our UK tutors are qualified teachers – so you know they are trained, safe, and experienced at teaching your required subject at a high-quality.

We do the work for you

With our service, you don’t need to scroll through endless pages of irrelevant tutors. You just fill in a simple form or call us with your requirements and, within 24 hours, we will send you a shortlist of available teachers in your area.

Our quality guarantee

You can be safe in the knowledge that if you are unhappy with your first lesson (this is rare, but we understand that sometimes the fit isn’t quite right), we will not charge you for the lesson and we will find you another high-quality teacher.

I am a qualified teacher who has trained to teach ages 11-18 as well as 4-11. I have almost 20 years tutoring experience having established my own Tuition Service, West Wickham Independent Learning Centre, in Bromley in 2002 which operated until 2017. I then relocated but still tutored privately. I tutor Primary Key Stage 1 and 2, English and maths and prepare tutees for 11+ Exams. I also tutor in English and maths up to GCSE. I am registered to deliver the National Tutoring Programme currently being delivered in schools. I am patient and positive, utilising a variety of teaching strategies to suit individual students’ needs, beginning with a baseline assessment of strengths and challenges and designing a bespoke tutoring programme for each child. I am very happy to provide exemplary references and look forward to meeting with you to examine how best to boost your child’s confidence, resilience and attainment.

MA (Ed), Durham University (2009). PGCE Secondary Science, Durham University (2007). BSc Physics (Astrophysics), Durham University (2006).

Member since 2021 Mrs Hannah E

I'm a geeky, enthusiastic physics teacher of 14 years who is passionate about helping students to understand physics and not be scared of it. I've taught a wide range of abilities from ages 10 to 18 and have had excellent results at Common Entrance, GCSE, A-Level, IB Diploma (Higher and Standard), and Oxbridge admissions tutoring. Good tutoring requires clear explanations, checking for understanding and misconceptions, and using resources, demonstrations and lots of practice to help the students to realise that yes, they CAN do this and get the grades they want! Students have described me as "approachable" and "easy to understand". For students who are wanting to be challenged and perhaps go beyond the bounds of their current course or prepare for university, I have experience with Gifted and Talented students and enjoy bringing that spark of further knowledge and curiosity to them.

Subjects: Science, Physics, Common Entrance, 13+, School Entrance Exams
