Our tutors aren't just subject experts

They’re also role models, recruited from the UK's top universities.

The nature of an English exam, and the fact that there are rarely any right or wrong answers, can make studying English surprisingly difficult. There are numerous assessment objectives and the key to success (as our tutors will tell you) lies in mastering these.

One-to-one online sessions with an English tutor will help you understand these objectives, bridge any gaps in your knowledge and sharpen your exam technique. Our English tutors have all achieved top marks in their own exams, so are well placed to guide you through yours. They'll make sure that when it comes to your exam, you feel well-prepared, confident, and ready to get the marks you deserve.

Lucy is giving us regular feedback on our son's progress. Tutorial reviews are regularly written which give us an overview of the lesson. We see a marked improvement in his English language performance at school.

Lucy made a comprehensive program to teach Hamza after their meet the tutor session. The plan was well prepared considering the tutee's strengths and weaknesses and it was conveyed to us. Regular feed backs after each session help us follow the progress. We are happy to see the progress my son is making and definitely recommend her as an English tutor to others. Well done Lucy.

What our amazing tutors have to say

Brimming with up-to-date curriculum knowledge and always willing to help

What sort of things do you cover with your students?

Usually we cover both subject knowledge and exam technique, although that can change depending on each individual student. Then we go through diagrams, and they ask questions, and we go from there.

How is MyTutor different from school?

Lots of students say that the classes are too big in school, or that they don't have time to ask teachers after Online Lessons. In my Online Lessons, we take time to explore things in a little in a bit more detail.

What happens in a typical Online Lesson?

I always look up the board my students are taking so the Online Lessons are really relevant. Then we go through past papers or set texts, whatever the student finds helpful.

How do you explain tricky concepts in your Online Lessons?

I use the shared whiteboard. We make diagrams together and label them, and often the student prints it off because they know it's right and they completely understand it.

Do you have any success stories?

After tutoring one girl went and told all her friends the new explanation I gave her. And she was so excited about what she wrote in the exam she emailed me immediately afterwards.

Answered by Stephanie R

Can you help with last-minute revision?

There was one girl who had her exam on Monday. She wanted tuition on Friday, Saturday and Sunday beforehand. It was very intense, but she said the exam went well.
