We are a local tutorial agency established for 19 years. We offer individual, home-based tuition for students of any age in the Manchester area. All our tutors are qualified teachers. They are highly experienced and personally vetted with CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) clearance.

We do not make use of undergraduate students or unqualified individuals. All our tutors have a PGCE or equivalent qualification.

Many of our tutors will come to your home to provide lessons, some work from their own home. We will take into account your preference when recommending a tutor.

Client satisfaction is our ultimate aim and you will receive personal attention from us on contacting the agency. We do receive many recommendations from parents who have previously used our tutoring service; much of our business is via word of mouth (please see below for testimonials).

We offer one to one tuition in the following:

Basic English & Maths
11+ entry
Independent school exams

Secondary: Years 7-9
All school subjects
SATS Key stage 3

GCSE & A Level
English (Lit. & Lang.), French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Russian, Latin
Mathematics and Further Mathematics
Chemistry, Physics, Biology
Geography, History
Psychology, Sociology
Business Studies

A minimum of one hour per week tuition is advised for continuity and genuine progress. Our experience has shown us many times that one to one tuition increases confidence, improves grades and gives a much deeper understanding of the subject.

  • Please contact us by telephone in the first instance. You will usually get a personal reply and you can discuss your requirements with us in detail. We are happy to spend as much time as you need in order to identify the best tutoring solution for you.
  • If you wish to proceed, we will arrange for a suitable tutor to contact you, discuss your needs and arrange a mutually convenient time for a lesson.
  • Should a tutor be unable to continue with your lessons, for example due to ill health, we are large enough to be able to quickly find a replacement tutor in the vast majority of cases.

Terms of Business for Tutors:

We are an Introduction Agency for the purpose of tutoring. Tutors are self-employed and are solely responsible for any required declaration to HM Revenue & Customs.

We undertake all advertising, initial contact with students and conduct all preliminary discussions. Once a student is introduced to you, they have agreed their initial needs with us and are going forward to book a lesson. (Occasionally a student may decide  not to continue at this point but this is fairly rare).

For our service the Agency requires a commission per hour of tuition. However we have a reduced commission for long-term clients, which sets us apart from many other agencies.

Full details of terms and conditions will be sent to you on application, or you are welcome to telephone us for an informal discussion.
