Why an agency?
When contacting an agency, everything becomes more personal. You get to have a real conversation and express exactly what you need instead of ticking pre set boxes. What that means is you get a tutor based off not just your child’s location and subject, also also the personality of your child.
Not only that, but with directories and listings, you’ll often have to pay a heavy fee before you even get to contact your chosen tutor, and if the pairing isn’t successful then you have to repeat the process with another tutor. In agencies, you pay as you go, never having to provide upfront fees, and if you aren’t happy with your tutor, you can generally switch to a new one at no extra cost.
We place an emphasis in scientifically backed learning methods. We research the latest developments in education and learning and encourage our tutors to do the same. We also have a blog set up with all our articles freely available.
Our security checks are another thing that sets us apart. We don’t just make sure our tutors have DBS checks, we also personally interview them. Making sure they’re likeable as well as knowledgeable. We’re also registered with the ICO to comply with the Data Protection Act, so you can feel safe that you and your child’s data is secure.
The problem with most agencies is they charge exorbitant fees. As a small agency, we don’t need to cover large management and marketing costs, so we can operate on much smaller margin. As a result we can also afford to recruit higher quality tutors while helping you save when you switch to us. So come on, try a tutr tutor!
