Our Rates:

We try hard to keep our rates as low as possible whilst also being able to provide the best tutors. 80% of the hourly rate stays with the tutor and we work hard to provide peerless support and resources for both you and them.

Rates are determined by a combination of factors including qualifications, experience, track record and time with the agency. All of our tutors have to earn their higher rates through results and feedback.

One you've been assigned a tutor, we guarantee that their rates will not increase for the duration of that particular job.

Stacks Image 332
Stacks Image 712

This is our base rate for tuition and we are proud that around 40% of all our jobs are offered at this rate.

As most of our tutors, regardless of their previous experience and qualifications, start at this rate it is often possible to get a brilliant tutor at a great price.

Tutors at the £40 rate will have proven to us their excellence and commitment, primarily through results and client feedback, to get to the £40 mark.

If you are looking for a tutor at a lower rate, please do ask. We almost always have options at different rate but make the initial recommendation based on suitability rather than hourly rate.

Stacks Image 724
Stacks Image 728

A higher rate for a much rarer breed of tutor. Our tutors at this rate are commonly full-time tuition professionals or have demonstrated consistently brilliant results over an extended period of time.

We only recommend tutors at this rate when they have a proven track-record with Torchlight.

Very occasionally we might offer tutors to you at £50/hour or a higher rate.

This is only done when a tutor's particular skill set, qualifications or the nature of the job force us to in order to be able to pay that tutor a fair market rate.

In this instance we will always endeavour to offer you an alternative.

  • OUR TUTORS

    "Toby you have without doubt been instrumental in shaping the careers and motivation of two of my children so far.  They treasure their time with you, and say they learnt more in an hour with you than in a week at school."

    MRS RC (A2 & SAT)

  • OUR TUTORS

    "On the recommendation of a close friend I took my son to receive maths tuition from Toby in order to improve his GCSE grade. Toby immediately put him at ease and created the calm and focussed environment which allowed some clarity to prevail during their one-hour sessions.  He was able to concentrate, understand, and improve his grade. I now recommend Toby without hesitation."

    MR SM (GCSE)

  • OUR TUTORS

    "Both my boys really connected with Theo and actually looked forward to their weekly tutoring sessions!  Not only did they enjoy learning from Theo but they both did well on their exams and got into their first choice schools."

    MRS SB (Various)

  • OUR TUTORS

    "Toby is able, through every turn, to adjust his methods to meet the task, that of understanding the 'student' and meeting whatever needs they may have at the time, be them to explain or support or inspire or consolidate. The results are always the same; extraordinary. It all goes back to 'real teaching', by a teacher who wants to do what he is doing: teaching!"

    MRS MG (11+/GCSE/AS/A2)

  • OUR TUTORS

    "Lydia has been absolutely fantastic for my son - a rare mix of being able to stretch him academically but in such a relaxed way he didn't feel he was being pushed. She had just the right balance of teaching complex topics but in a fun way.  My son always looked forward to her sessions and learnt so much in such a short time."


    MRS MW (13+)

  • OUR TUTORS

    "James has helped all 3 of my children face their fear of maths, working at both 11+ and GCSE level. He is endlessly patient and happy to explain things in several different ways if necessary.  The sessions are made to feel like fun and my children always look forward to seeing him.  He has also helped on troublesome topics or to consolidate what has been covered in school."


    MRS VW (11+/GCSE) 

  • OUR TUTORS

    "Tabitha is an excellent tutor. Her patience and thoughtfulness in helping our son through his common entrance exams masked a drive and commitment to ensure that he fulfilled his potential. Tabitha is assiduous in her standards and unflaggingly creative in explaining points until the register with her pupil. Our son passed his entrance exams but also matured as a young man and developed writing skills that neither he nor we ever knew he had until Tabitha turned up. It is testament to her teaching skills that our son will still refer to what she taught him as the touchstone for how to learn."

    MR MB (11+)

  • OUR TUTORS

    "We were thrilled that she was offered places at four schools, including our top pick, and moved up a set in maths at her current school. Meanwhile [the student] developed a real interest in and enjoyment of maths. I’d happily recommend Steve to anyone."

    MR GP (11+)

  • OUR TUTORS

    "Ollie has really helped Lea coping with the pressure of the 11+ by having a patient, flexible yet firm approach. She got accepted in her 1st choice, which felt like a long shot away when we started the tuition in September. I would absolutely recommend Torchlight Tuition to anyone who is looking for great personalised tuition service, focussed on bringing the best out of your child and building his/her confidence."

  • TORCHLIGHT

    "Thanks for your thoughtful provision of excellent tutors who matched my daughter’s needs beautifully. It has been a great support to me that you were on the job straight away, with ideas for the right tutor within 24 hours. Remarkable! Two excellent teachers and both charming to have visit at home. Thank you."


    MRS S (GCSE)

    "Torchlight Tuition's unique, personal approach sets them above the rest.  Their keen grasp of a student's individual needs, complimented by an exclusive range of tutors was an inspiration to our son. I can highly recommend them."


    MRS SC (GCSE/A2)

    "I highly recommend Toby and Torchlight Tuition. Toby provided excellent, sympathetic and focused tutorial assistance to our daughter helping her revise and prepare mentally to sit GCSE exams at a time when she really needed support. We shall always be grateful to Toby for his professionalism in helping her achieve her potential."


    MR RM (GCSE)

    "Torchlight are quite simply wonderful. Their care and concern about the children that they teach informs everything they do. The service offered by Torchlight is brilliant both for the children and for their parents. They walked us through every stage of the common entrance process with advice that was considered, thought-through and based on a real feel for our son and what was in his best interests. I cannot rate them highly enough."
