Local Tutors you can count on

Alex joined Home-School tutoring in June 2011, having been a head teacher in Central London. Six years on, she is proud of the success rate of Home-School Tutoring in West and Central Hampshire.

“I really enjoy working with my growing team of wonderful tutors and the satisfied families in this area,” Alex says.

“If you would like to discuss how our tutors could help you or your child, just give me a call, write me an email or send me your details using the form on this page. Our initial consultation is free and without obligation – if you decide to proceed, I will do my best to match you with just the right tutor.”

Full details of the areas Alex covers can be found by clicking the Areas Covered tab above the enquiry form.

Supportive personal tuition, whatever your need

When contacting Alex, please provide details about the subject(s) required, the level (e.g. the key stage, GCSE, A Level or undergraduate) and any supplementary information, such as special educational needs, dyslexia support or gifted student support.

“It helps to give as much detail as you can so I can assess your needs and your specific tutoring requirements and preferences,” Alex says. “Do let me know if your child would be more comfortable with a lady tutor for example, or if they have a strong interest in something (lego, superheroes, becoming a vet) that we can use to maximise their engagement in learning quickly.

“We have tutors who specialise in entrance exam preparation for the fabulous schools within our area, as well as individual subject support in all academic areas, many languages and lessons for various musical instruments.”

Helping pupils of all ages succeed

Our Hampshire tutors have helped many students develop new confidence and succeed in tests and exams.

Recent praise from schools and parents for our West and Central Hampshire tutors can be found to the right.

“We have an excellent success rate and our tutors are often asked to return to work with siblings,” says Alex.

“We currently have students aged from five to 66, all enjoying a tailored programme from our excellent and dedicated tutors.”

Qualified tutors in Southampton, Eastleigh, Winchester or Andover, Romsey or Chandlers Ford

“We have both daytime work (we work with schools, hospitals, theatres and fostering agencies as well as the Home Education community) and evening/weekend and school holiday work.

“If you fill in the short screening form online I will send you the full registration form and further details.

Recent testimonial from a local school to which we have supplied tutors

"Firstly can I say how impressed we have been with both the tutors who have worked with our students. All of the students have really benefited, in particular from the encouragement and positive feedback they received. For many of our students this is the much needed boost they need.

"Hopefully we will have funding next academic year and will be able to use your services again. Once again thank you very much for your excellent service."

Recent testimonials from satisfied students and parents

"Many thanks for being such an amazing tutor – you have changed lives in such a short space of time. The students think you're fantastic and so do we!"

"Well our letter arrived today and W's just opened it. I'm really happy to tell you he's been offered a place and we are overjoyed! Many thanks for all that you did for W and keeping me calm too throughout the whole process!"

"Thank you so much for getting in touch to ask about E's exam. She was nervous but confident going in. Her first paper went well. She specifically commented that your tutoring had made a huge difference, so thank you again, I wish we had found you sooner."

"Just a quick email to thank you for all you have done – what a difference your tuition has made! His teacher cannot believe the difference in confidence in a few short weeks – he is like a different boy with school now a pleasure!"

"My daughter's confidence in doing maths has been boosted greatly, and she is now starting to believe that she CAN do it. That's with thanks to her patient and understanding maths tutor, who makes it fun and interesting every week.... I have recommended this company to several of my friends and would continue to do so without hesitation."

"The only time my son ever loves doing maths! Thoroughly recommend!!"

"Fantastic personalised service. You really feel Alex has a genuine interest in your child's outcomes!"

"This fabulous company found me the perfect tutor for my son, twice! I cannot recommend them highly enough."

"We engaged a home tutor through Home School Tutoring, to support our son after he had missed work at school due to disruption in his class. The one-on-one tutoring was fundamental to covering the lost ground and rebuilding his confidence. You could see his confidence returning after each session with her."

"Thank you so much for recommending Charlotte to us. S was reluctant and nervous about having a tutor, but since the first session, she's been wishing the days away until the next session. She seems to have turned a corner already – what a difference in confidence, wish we had come to you earlier!"

"L had his entrance exam on Saturday – he was so pleased that he had done the practice interviews and had no nerves! I know we said that we would stop after his exam, but we would like to continue if we can keep the same tutor?"
