A word from the founder
“After having taught in a range of secondary schools in England and abroad, I have noticed that the demand and need for private tuition is growing.
I have taken inspiration from my last job as a teacher and tutor at one of London’s top independent sixth form colleges, where the teaching is very personal and centred around the abilities of the individual student. With over 50% of students achieving A/A* for their A-levels, I have seen how the personal approach focused on the one student made a remarkable difference.
With class sizes growing, the pressure on teachers is increasing and the reduced time per student results in less homework, generalised teaching and less knowledge of the individual student’s abilities, personality and needs. This makes it very hard to achieve the students full potential.”
“This is where Quality Teach can make a difference; I want to be able to give every student that one to one time, that personal approach adapted to the individual students abilities, to make sure the student will have the best set of skills, confidence and knowledge to exceed their target and succeed in their exams. Importantly, all tuition will take place at our private tuition centre, which is designed to be a safe and professional environment to enhance the educational experience for all students.”
How we select our tutors
All the tutors we take on are interviewed face to face and almost all our tutors are local teachers. We assess their qualifications, their experience, we check references and make sure our tutors have an up to date enhanced DBS check. Some of our tutors combine tuition with full-time or part-time teaching and some of our staff are full-time tutors.
We look for passionate tutors with expert subject knowledge and a range of experience with the different exam boards and exam techniques that come with it.
What happens when you contact us?
Following your first email or phone contact, we will set up a meeting with you to meet both the parent and the student. In this meeting we will discuss the student’s previous results, what you want out of the tuition and we will show you the centre. We then set you up on our software system, which you will have access to, to view your invoices, your tuition schedule and the reports written by your tutor.
We agree a day and time for the tuition to take place at our centre and following your registration with us we will provide you with a Quality Teach bag with some stationary to make a good start!
At your child’s first session we recommend you come in with your child to meet your tutor. You are welcome to wait in our waiting area (don’t forget to borrow a parking permit if you parked outside!) or you can take the time to run some errands and return at pick up time.
After every session you will receive a report from your tutor over email (also viewable in your Tutorcruncher account). This will contain information on what has been done in the lesson and the homework set for the following lesson.
After your first two tuition sessions, we will be in contact to ask about your experience. After a few sessions, we will set some specific targets we will work on in the sessions and go from there.
In a nutshell;
- Initial meeting at the centre to discuss your needs
- Receive your welcome pack!
- Attend your first tuition session (all tuition takes place in our professional centre)
- Receive your first report
- Review your first two tuition sessions
- Work hard and see results!
