Our tutor recruitment process

1. Prospective tutors apply with a CV and cover letter with their academic background and teaching experience.

2. Each and every application is reviewed by our team and contact the shortlisted candidate for interview.

3. The first part of the interview is a lesson which is prepared in advance by the tutor but needs to be adapted on the day according to the needs of the student. The student is one of our assessors. Our team of assessors is made up of our most experienced and highest performing tutors.

4. The second part of the interview is a self-assessment, in which the tutor is encouraged to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of the lesson they gave. This gives us an insight into the tutor's self-awareness and their ability to improve their own practice.

5. The third and final part of the interview is a general discussion about the tutor's teaching approach and philosophies.

6. We listen very carefully to our students and parents’ feedback, to ensure that they are continually meeting the highest standards.

We also conduct thorough background checks

1. An ID check, to prove the tutor is who they claim to be and is allowed to work in the UK.

2. A Qualifications check, to prove the tutor has genuinely obtained excellent academic credentials relevant to the subjects they will be tutoring.

3. A DBS (previously 'CRB') check, to ensure there is no criminal background making them unsuitable to work as a private tutor.

4. Reference check, to get an outside perspective on the tutor's teaching skills, reliability and personality.
