Home tutors for all ages and subjects

Within this area of Kent, our personal tutors help a wide range of students, from primary school through secondary school as well as those at college or university. We also have tutors who work with pre-school children and adults in education or studying in the workplace.

We work with pupils attending or striving to secure places at selective schools as well as students attending secondary moderns in the area.

We have a number of tutors who specialise in 11 Plus preparation as well as the Common Entrance and other entry exams.

Our GCSE tutors and AS and A Level tutors have helped many pupils achieve the results they wanted in their exams. As well as tutors for English, maths and science, for which many pupils request help, we have tutors for a range of curriculum subjects as well as many additional non-curriculum subjects.

Meanwhile, our literacy and numeracy specialists provide long-term support for many who benefit from one-to-one tuition for reading, writing and/or number work.

A full list of subjects available through Home-School Tutoring can be found to the right, while details about specific tutors in Kent are available by completing the enquiry form or contacting Frances.

Tailored personal tuition

Whatever your requirement, our home tutors will tailor their lessons and techniques to you or your child’s individual needs. Working one-to-one enables students to set the pace of their learning and ask as many questions as they need to ensure they fully understood their work.

Our tutors can also provide individualised tuition to two or more students working together, and can travel to pupils’ homes or teach in other suitable locations.

Many of our tutors are teachers who also work in schools or who have previously taught in schools, and we carefully check qualifications and DBS certificates before our tutors commence teaching.
