It seemed to be a very common story – a parent may have been able to secure the services of a private tutor, but word-of-mouth recommendations from friends and relatives often seemed very hit and miss. Similarly, picking a tutor at random from a classified ad could often lead to a situation where the tutor just wasn’t working out as expected, leaving parents with the awkward problem of having to explain to the tutor that it wasn’t working – and then having to start the search process again, often with their child falling further behind or with exams looming.
The answer seemed obvious to them – why not create an easy way for parents to avail of a range of meticulously vetted tutors with a broad range of skills and experience? That way a tutor could be chosen for a child’s specific needs after a careful assessment and, in the unlikely event of a mismatch, the tutor could be easily swapped for another right away.
That was the thinking behind Tutor Experts and since then Steve and Fenella have been growing the company, combining their business expertise with the enormous educational experience of their tutors.
So how has it been working out? In a word, great! Lots of confident pupils seeing noticeable improvements in their grades – and happy parents freed from something that used to be time-consuming and stressful.
