Without the right tutor, everything else that we do is irrelevant. Which is why we work very hard to match the right tutor to the right student. Students who respect and relate to their tutors will naturally want to do well and impress. As a result, successful candidate tutors must not only be academically brilliant but they need to be the kind of people who care about making a difference. We admit it, we expect a lot from our tutors. Which is why only 1 in 30 candidates actually make it through. We have an 11-step training and vetting process and, even once completed, tutors are required to attend weekly group meetings with management where they share valuable advice, educational philosophy and syllabus content.
Despite the close relationship that we encourage between tutor and student, the intention is not to create a dependence on the tutor.
Rather, our approach is centered on arming students with the unique tools they need to flourish independently without the need for external support. Our tutors view building confidence and developing core study skills at the heart of successful tutoring.
