Our Approach

Combining the provision of high quality private tuition with a personal, bespoke approach, Ivy Education has set a precedent for a thorough and professional service for clients throughout London. We are able to arrange support for students at all stages of schooling and in every area of the curriculum, placing particular emphasis on the core subjects; Maths, English and the Sciences. As well as being experts in their fields, our tutors also recognise the need for targeted support, with many being experts in the 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ examinations, as well as understanding the requirements for every subject at GCSE, A Level and International Baccalaureate.

While providing the best tutors for any given assignment, we also offer educational consultancy and assessments. These services work to inform, direct and personalise any tuition undertaken with us.

Our Review

Good schools guide logo


An established kid on the block these days and one that really impressed us with its quality and integrity. ‘The staff are professional, courteous and helpful, and the tutor they sent was good fun, patient and thorough. My son learnt a lot,’ said a typically satisfied parent, ‘and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ivy Education.’
