We have a rigorous selection process when taking on new tutors. We take great pride in getting to know each tutor individually so that each recommendation is not only based on academic strengths, but on personality matches.
It is of upmost importance to us that we get the match correct, as the tutor will need to build good rapport with the student. This creates a relationship of trust as well as the best environment to progress in and have lots of fun in the process.
