Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use Teachers2Tutor over other providers?
We believe that Teachers2Tutor provides the best tutoring service available in the UK.
Completely free to connect – Other tuition providers will charge a significant connection fee to even talk to tutors. We believe you should have the opportunity to 'test the water' and form a relationship with your tutor before you are required to pay any money to hire them.
The Best Tutors– Unlike other tutoring services, we only allow fully qualified teachers to offer their tuition services on our website.
Variety of subjects and personal tutors – As we do not charge private tutors to appear on our website, a wide selection of the very best tutors in your area are available, covering tuition in a large range of subjects.
Why do you only use fully qualified teachers?
Although we recognise that there are a lot of skilled professionals who offer personal tuition for other providers, we feel that the best tutors have skillsdeveloped and honed by being a teacher for many years. Many professionals do not possess the skill set necessary to clearly communicate their knowledge in an engaging and stimulating way during private tuition, while breaking learning in to small achievable steps; something which is absolutely essential for successful learning. For this reason we only use fully qualified teachers as our home tutors and we think this makes us the best private tutor provider available.
