  • Select the Subject and Level
  • Browse tutor profiles
  • Submit your request for the list – there’s no charge

We’ll email information to you including contact details of the tutors and our recommended hourly rate range for lessons. The tutor’s own hourly fee will depend on their tutoring experience, their qualifications and the distance from your home if travelling to you. The next step is to contact the tutors and discuss tuition. To arrange tuition with a tutor, simply agree the date and time of the first lesson. At the end of each lesson you pay the tutor their hourly fee and our small agency fee which the tutor forwards on to us.

It easy to arrange! You deal directly with the tutor. Take as many lessons as needed. For your reassurance, we monitor our registered tutors.

Most tutors are qualified teachers, lecturers and experts in their specialist areas. Many have valuable working experience of exams and assessing work.

Competition for places is high with many Kent Grammar Schools usually oversubscribed. Each school has their own admission criteria. If you feel that your child could benefit from additional help in preparing for the Kent Test, in the first instance please request a list of tutors from us. Our tutors who offer Kent Test preparation are skilled and in high demand, and their availability varies throughout the year. Of course no tutor can guarantee that the pupil will gain a place at their preferred Grammar School but one-to-one tutoring may help improve their chances of success.
