THE PERFECT TUTORS FOR YOU
At Westcountry Tuition, we know how hard it can be to find a private tutor who you trust will be the best fit for you or your child’s academic requirements and private tuition requirements. Let us help you find the best tutor to match your needs for private tuition. We take rigorous steps to check the suitability of all our Westcountry Tuition approved tutors, so you do not have to.
We scrutinize our tutors across four levels to make sure we provide the perfect match.
Safety: We check DBS (police checks) and do everything possible to make sure ex-teachers. Who applied are not barred from teaching. We also require references and testimonials.
Qualifications: We make sure your tutor is qualified and competent to tutor your chosen subjects. That they understand their subject well. They can also communicate in a way that will make the most sense to you. We also physically check qualifications as well as checking the tutors’ experience and skills.
Personality: Whilst many tutors have the same qualifications and experiences, often it is the tutor’s personality, interests, and hobbies. That creates the best fit for your child. This personality factor is the keystone to the best possible private tuition, which always creates academic success.
IT skills: There is nothing worse than a tutor who is unable to cope with the technology. We ensure all our online tutors know how to make the most of the online whiteboard and can quickly help you get the most out of it too.
