Our vision is to provide the highest quality tuition in London, combining efficiency with an approach personalised to each family. Leveraging our expertise, experience and relationships, our services are all aimed at helping students realise their goals and discover their potential.
Our tutors carry out lessons with students at every level of schooling, from Early Years Foundation Stage, KS1 and KS2 at primary level through to KS3, GCSE, A Level and International Baccalaureate at secondary level. More specifically, we have tutors that specialise in giving support with school entrance examinations, such as the 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+, and regularly have the pleasure of hearing about our students gaining entry to the schools of their choice. While placing particular emphasis on the core subjects – Maths, English and the Sciences – we also have tutors able to give support with all subjects and all aspects of the curriculum.Enquire about tuition
"We were very happy with your service. Alastair was very accommodating and helpful, even though I left it so late in arranging a tutor this time for my son J on our trip to London. J just loved Robin! He made it somehow fun for him and J wants to read the books that Robin recommended."
1. WE TALK TO YOU
We feel that tuition requires a highly personal approach if it is going to be properly tailored for an individual. Our advisors in the office are always on hand to talk through tuition with you over the phone, and will ensure that we have a clear picture of what is needed before locating a tutor.
2. WE TALK TO THE TUTORS
Now equipped with the necessary information to find the best possible match for the student, we contact the tutors we feel would be suitable for the assignment. We then weigh up all the candidates with regard to their availability, their experience and qualifications, their manner and their approach to tuition before deciding who to shortlist.
3. WE PROVIDE OPTIONS
When sending over the shortlist of tutors, we strive to ensure that you have all the necessary information in order to make an informed decision. If any further advice is needed about which tutor would be best suited to a particular student, our advisors are always reachable over the phone or via email and are delighted to give guidance.
4. WE STAY IN TOUCH
From beginning to end, we will stay in touch with you throughout the tuition course. It is so important to us that the quality and progress of the tuition is consistent, and that the family, the student and the tutor are all happy with the arrangements in place.
"May I also add how fantastic Delphine was, especially for English, and she was always willing and prepared for every lesson, she even offered to mark essays and answer any last minute questions I had in her own time regardless of the time of day. Highly recommended. And thank you for the great communication, I’ll be sure to recommend your services."

We are very proud of the positive feedback from our clients about our tutors, which reflects our highly selective approach to building our tutor base. Many of our tutors are qualified teachers, some of whom are Heads of Department in their area of expertise. We also work with young and exciting tutors who are graduates of Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College and other outstanding universities. These tutors have excelled in their own academic careers, and have a strong desire to communicate their passion for their subject, as well as share their successful study skills and exam techniques.
Our rates follow a sliding scale which reflects the qualifications and level of experience of each tutor. For further information about our rates, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We are very discerning when selecting tutors for Ivy Education. While a strong academic background indicates to us that a tutor can handle the rigours of intense, pressurised study, we believe that it takes more than this for the highest quality tuition to be delivered. We only work with tutors who excel across all four of the areas which we have found to be key to tutoring excellence. As well as academic background, we place a high value on the professional experience of the tutor, their personality and their approach to teaching as a vocation.
When recruiting, we consider the strength of our tutors’ qualifications, placing particular value on those who have achieved their Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and those with strong A-Level and degree results in their specialist subject(s). The success of our tutors in academia is often due to their own passion for learning, an attitude which can be a strong motivator to a student in need of some inspiration!
There is no substitute for real-life experience, and while we prize academic qualifications, we also regard professional experience very highly. Our tutors will have amassed an amount of formal tuition experience, will be working towards their PGCE or will already have gained their QTS and be working in the classroom.
For a tutor to truly inspire a student, they will need to have an enthusiastic and considered approach to tuition. We look for tutors with a strong motivation to teach and bring out the best in students, combined with an ability to plan and deliver a personalised tuition session, which we test at interview. Our tutors have a friendly, accessible disposition, are willing to be flexible and are great at keeping in touch.
"Fatma is an amazing tutor, words can hardly express her talent. My daughter A is very comfortable with her. We are highly impressed with her teaching skill. A was struggling with Economics but Fatma’s way of teaching makes it much easier for A to understand the subject. Fatma is not only an excellent tutor, she is also very polite, very accommodating and punctual with her timing. I am so fortunate to have such a good tutor who has been a good example for a teenager like A. She has motivated her to get ready for a good university, as well as to work hard for a brighter future. My all best wishes for Fatma. Thank you so much Ivy Education for providing me with such good tutor."
