Private tutoring can not only help boost grades, but also build important learning skills and improve pupil confidence
Parents often turn to private tutoring for their child to help boost their grades in the important final years of school, or for additional support in a particular topic or class in which the child may benefit from some extra help. Tutoring can also help children build important learning skills, develop the best strategies for exam preparations and revision specific to their individual learning style, and improve work ethic and study habits – but tutors can also be beneficial in terms of increasing self-esteem and confidence, by providing students with the ability and skills to thrive in a school environment and to encourage them to share ideas, thoughts and answers.
It can be daunting choosing the right tutor for your child, so here we highlight five of the best tutoring companies:
We employ tutors with exceptional academic records and a true passion for their subjects. They deliver in-house and after-school quality tuition for children who need extra support. Our comprehensive academic assessments provide expert insight into each child’s academic abilities, helping to prepare for a range of entrance exams.
Our reputation and expertise have led us to develop partnerships with schools, assessors, relocation agencies and SEN and mental health experts, enabling us to provide a consistently tailored service. Whether you are looking for a weekly tutor or a bespoke international home-schooling programme, no request is too big or too small!

Mentor Education provides tuition and educational support with children’s wellbeing at the heart of everything we do. Central to our approach is the belief that academic grades alone do not provide the whole picture. We aim to inspire children, build their confidence, improve their focus and motivation and help our students adapt to stressful situations such as exams and school moves.
We achieve this by providing truly tailored tutoring, giving children one to one attention and subtle mentoring, leading to positive behavioural changes at home and in school. With regular assessments and a real human touch (something that is lost in today’s world of online match-making tuition agencies), we help children achieve stellar results.
Since the 1980s, Mentor Education has helped over 90,000 children with tuition and advice about their education. We help families when they are facing a crossroads in their children’s’ education, be it school entrance exams, public exams, special education needs or an unplanned school move.
