MORE TEACHERS AND TUTORS are needed for all towns and villages in Cornwall and the Scilly Isles.

We particularly welcome teachers and tutors who can offer Maths, English, Science, Modern Languages  and Special Educational Needs as their specialist subject, for any age or level.

Throughout the county we have young children  and older students needing help with  school and college learning.   This includes numeracy and literacy, special needs and help with learning difficulties. We also have older pupils and adults in need of supportive tuition as they work through their school and college curriculum and prepare for exams.

Besides the main core subject tutors, we welcome tutors in all subjects as we receive many requests for different levels and subjects.

We are also able to offer tutoring to students whose first language is not English (EFL tutoring).

A few recent testimonials

Engaged in biology and maths

Things are going really well with Sarah and Sally.  Sarah has only been twice so far but she is getting used to Jack and his ways. Sally is superb and really has got Jack engaged in his Biology and Maths.  He has been looking at cells, construction of flowers, dissecting them and today they were looking inside seeds. He's loving it.  It's so nice to see him working and enjoying it.  
Mrs Cook, Cornwall 

A 'thank you' to Tutor Teddy

My son Ed met with Teddy before Christmas as a get together session. That went very well. We have already seen progress after just one paid tutoring session. The school teacher asked in class this week if anyone knew the formula for something and Ed was able to answer above everyone else (he'd covered this specific topic with Teddy this week!). The teacher gave a knowing smile apparently! So, in answer to your question about how things are going - fab, thank you.
Mrs. Pusey, Cornwall

Thanks to Cornwall Tutor Penny from Susi, mother of William.

One of the Home-School Tutoring Cornwall Tutors, ' Penny' has been helping our 7 year old son with his reading and writing for the last few months. He had fallen behind, because of un-diagnosed sight problems and was not enjoying English lessons at school.

Since Penny has been coming, we have seen a big improvement in William's ability and also his enthusiasm for reading and writing. Penny is very patient, encouraging and puts a lot of effort into making William's lessons fun.

Thank you to great tutors!

Andrew is a very conscientious and enthusiastic teacher, I am very pleased with his attention to detail and in how he talks to my daughter. He is very clear in what he needs her to do and she really gets on well with him. Thank you for recommending him.
Mrs Girling, Cornwall
