Home-School Tutoring for all subjects and levels
- We understand the schooling system, and the goals you aim for. We will help you to achieve them with patience and encouragement.
- We give tutoring to pupils in schools and colleges, in both state schools and the independent sector, as well as to pupils in home schooling.
- We have tutors to help you learn and practice revision and exam techniques for GCSE, A level and other stages.
- Group tuition as well as individual tutoring can be provided at any level; primary, secondary, independent, college and sixth form.
- Herefordshire-based university students who would like personal tuition for a degree programme or other higher education courses are also supported.
- We also provide home tuition to adults in the county who are undertaking courses or wishing to develop skills, including literacy, numeracy, foreign languages and music.
It is our privilege to help
We love to help pupils who have struggled with learning. We aim to help these pupils to progress, enjoy learning and fulfil their potential. We have dyslexia specialists and SEN tutors available for Herefordshire students, as well literacy and numeracy tutors, who can take the stress out of learning and make it enjoyable.
I am also now proud to announce that we are the preferred supplier of tuition and educational services for the Gloucester and Forest Alternative Provision Schools (GFAPS), helping children unable to attend mainstream as a result of emotional and behavioural difficulties. It is a privilege to be directly helping students who find themselves in this position.
And the high flyers too
We also know that many parents hope their children will achieve places at a selective school of their choice and, later, apply to a good university. If your child is in private education or hoping for a place at a grammar school or independent school, we have tutors who specialise in preparing pupils for the 11+ and individual entrance exams.
A safe, personal service to provide you with the tutor you need
We can assure you that all our tutors comply with our Home-School Tutoring thorough checking procedures and therefore we can recommend the tutor or tutors you need, with confidence. We look forward to hearing from you.

John & HST Herefordshire tutors
John is our Home-School Tutoring Area Advisor for Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, and is passionate about teaching and learning. John has worked as a mathematics teacher at a secondary school for five years and also has experience of working as a personal tutor for students across the age and ability range.
John will be pleased to run this Area of Home-School Tutoring to assist pupils of all ages achieve more understanding and success in their learning. All subjects, levels and ages are covered.
As this is a relatively new area, additional teachers and tutors are invited to join the register of available tutors in this area.
John’s own speciality is mathematics and, as well as running this Area of Home-School Tutoring to provide help for all subjects, he will continue to tutor mathematics himself.
John understands that students can find aspects of mathematics daunting and can benefit from one-to-one support in order to achieve their true potential. He believes that a student needs to understand how, why and what they are doing, which can sometimes be overlooked in a busy classroom environment. (And this could be said for any subject.)
One-to-one tutoring, including ICT support where appropriate, can aid student understanding and help to boost confidence in the subject. Furthermore, John believes that all learning should not just be functional but also creative – and therefore fun.
Prior to teaching, John was a Civil Engineer for 20 years and this industrial experience has been an invaluable asset to his approach. He is a very approachable and understanding teacher and manager.
John loves family life with his partner, Jenny, and his two young children. He enjoys running and keeping fit, and is also passionate about electronic music.
If you are considering personal tuition for yourself or your child, please give John a call. He will discuss and help to identify the learning needs or issues, and then recommend to you the most suitable tutor.
John would like to stress that he welcomes enquiries from tutors who are graduates or have qualified teacher status, in any subject, who would like to join the team of Herefordshire/Gloucestershire tutors.

Testimonials from this Area
Excellent advice and support in finding tutors
"With the daunting task of organising home schooling for my 15yr old son in his GCSE years, I contacted John from Home-School Tutoring. As the Area Advisor for the Gloucester and Hereford region he gave me much needed reassurance and guidance. With years of experience as a teacher himself and an empathetic approach, he was instrumental in finding excellent tutors. John took into account our specific requirements and circumstances, helping to plan an initial timetable and advising on curriculums and exam boards and anything else I wasn't sure about! I have already recommended John to friends, who have been equally as satisfied and grateful as ourselves for his support."
( Cathy - Parent of home-schooled child in Herefordshire)
Noah has a new enthusiasm for GCSE Maths - thank you!
"We chose John to teach our son GCSE Maths which he has been doing for eight months now. He has a very open, easygoing manner which put Noah at ease from the first tutorial. He took time to get to know Noah's character, interests and motivations, thereby building a really productive mutual learning environment. John challenges Noah in a non-intimidating and very supportive way, giving him confidence to participate and contribute meaningfully and promoting a real understanding and enthusiasm for the subject. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a home tutor in Maths."
( Parent of Noah - Herefordshire)
