Our commitment to high standards in education and customer care have resulted in multiple awards
Despite the globally recognised quality of UK education, many school students encounter times of struggle in the traditional classroom environment. Your child may have fallen behind in their studies as the result of illness, accident or some other personal issue. Perhaps they have their heart set on a path into higher education or a career which requires specific qualifications that are not their natural strengths. Maybe they simply need the confidence boost that one-to-one sessions with private tutors are ideally positioned to deliver.
Principal Tutors provide all the help you need.
Our model contrasts sharply with so many directory-style tutoring services in which the onus is on the parent or guardian to identify an appropriate tutor based upon often limited information. Our solution is highly personalised to the individual student and is delivered in the most convenient and technologically advanced way. No longer are you limited to a pool of private tutors who live and work in your locality. The ease of delivering online lessons means your child can learn with the best, wherever they are.
Once a rare exception, online tuition has now become mainstream. It is a familiar part of school life and has revolutionised the way personalised tutoring services work. Online tutoring has all the benefits of individual attention combined with the extensive digital resources for sharing material, offering feedback and monitoring progress.
At Principal Tutors, we are at the forefront of modern online tuition. In addition to our innovative use of technology, what makes us different is the calibre of our tutors and the way we allocate them to clients.
Most providers of both in-person and online lessons engage educators at every level, including undergraduates and even gap-year students. While we appreciate the potential skills of individuals who are still undergoing their formal education, our view is that qualifications and experience in the classroom must take precedence. When you come to Principal Tutors, we want you to be in no doubt that we are placing your child’s hopes and aspirations in the hands of the most capable online tutors in the country. Our tutors are fully qualified UK teachers and lecturers with years of experience and fully up-to-date knowledge of the curriculum and of the latest developments in their specialist fields. In many instances their teaching is more than complementary: it aims higher.
How We Match Pupils with Tutors
Principal Tutors is not a traditional educational institution.
We are much more than simply a directory of tutors, a noticeboard where the onus is on you to make contact and decide whose services to use. Rather, we take a personalised approach to tutor and student relationship building.
Our role is two-fold. Firstly, we create and maintain a pool of the most talented, motivated and experienced online tutors, constantly reviewing, revising and expanding it. We only work with UK qualified teachers, and we only take on the best; in fact, we reject 98% of those that apply to tutor with us!
Secondly, based on your requirements, aims and preferences, we make an informed decision as to which tutors we believe will deliver for your child, in terms of the learning experience and the end results. We ask the tutor to conduct their own initial assessment of your child’s current capabilities in the subject and the best way to help them develop. If either party feels they are not quite the best match, we will revisit the process as required.
We are facilitators. We are here to ensure that students and tutors alike are entirely comfortable with their arrangement and can derive rewards, results and satisfaction from the relationship.
For many students, the concentrated attention of one-to-one tuition can make the difference between great results and exceptional ones.
We can record online tuition sessions at your request, allowing your child to playback and repeat them as often as they wish. Two-way feedback endlessly improves the process. Our customer support services are provided by qualified teachers which means that any problems can be solved quickly, professionally and empathetically.
If you feel your child needs a helping hand to help them scale the heights of their educational ambitions, then please contact Principal Tutors to find out how we can help.
