A Truly Bespoke Service

As a tuition agency run by experienced tutors and teachers we believe in giving support to both parents: to keep you informed and equipped, as well as to tutors: to make sure they have the best resources, knowledge and approach.

Above all we are proud of our local, personal approach. We work hard to know and contribute to the schools and community in our area and we try and ensure, particularly through our system of assessments, that all of our clients get the opportunity to come to the office and meet the team in person.

It all starts with a Personal Recommendation

Most agencies are adept at listening to your requirements and providing a tutor with qualifications that match. However, finding true chemistry between a child and their tutor is about much more than the right degree or even a proven track record.

When personality and teaching style is so crucial - to get the best out of a student, to make sure they enjoy themselves, and to engage with the subject - then you want an agency who takes the time to meet and assess every student and an agency who knows their group of tutors inside out.

In an industry where it has become the norm for parents to take the burden of trying out multiple tutors and choosing themselves, even from "reputable agencies", we are incredibly proud that our method has been proven to provide recommendations that stick first time.

Our Free Assessments are all conducted by our extremely experienced founder and director of studies. They focus on four key areas with the intention of ensuring compatibility both personally and educationally:

  • Academic Ability
  • Potential
  • Learning Style
  • Personality

We follow up with a comprehensive written report at which point parents are invited to discuss their requirements without any obligation of engaging a tutor.

Finally we will meet as an office and discuss the best approach to take and the right tutor to recommend. Once you've been set up with a tutor we will let them contact you and monitor progress closely.

Fees range from £35 to £50/hour based on qualifications and experience. Occasionally tutors under exceptional demand or with special qualifications will be over £50/hour. Read more about our rates here.

Torchlight Tuition reserves the right to raise the hourly rates from time to time. However, we guarantee that once you hire a tutor their rate will remain the same for the duration of each particular job.

Payment for tutorials is made directly to your tutor on a session by session basis. We do not accept payment of blocks of sessions in advance or in arrears and failure to pay will result in the termination of the sessions with your tutor.

We do not offer any discount or favourable rates for any reason.

Payment can be made by cash, cheque, bank transfer or PayPal as agreed with your tutor.

Membership:

When an enquiry is made you will be offered a free initial assessment with Torchlight Tuition. You are welcome to receive this assessment and report as well as any advice without needing to join Torchlight and pay the Membership Fee.

The membership fee is due on successful placement with one of our tutors and is payable in full at the start of your engagement with Torchlight. This fee is non-refundable. One Membership is required per student.

Failure to pay the Membership will lead to a withdrawal of support and resources from the office and, eventually, to a termination of the sessions with any recommended tutor.
