As a tutor I like to meet other tutors and am deeply involved in organising tutor meetups and online communities of tutors.
Following is a list of tutors who I know and trust to be a true professionals, doing what they do not as a hobby or part time, but full time and after having amassed years of experience perfecting their craft.
Richard Glascodine : Maths and Foundation Engineering
I have met Richard in person and communicate with him almost daily. He has a background as a qualified maths and music teacher and tutors both subjects online. He also trains apprentice Engineers and has a very practical, application way of tutoring maths and Engineering using manipulatives and picture methods. Based in Brighouse, Yorkshire he has mastered online tutoring in a matter of just two years.
Michael Dewar : French and Spanish up to A Level
Michael is based in London and is a full time tutor. We have taught many students together and compliment our subjects well. Michael is truly a language expert with a thorough knowledge of all the syllabuses. He also works with adults learning the languages.
Nigel Straney : Chemistry A Level and IGCSE
Nigel has nearly 20 years teaching and tutoring experience, and is also an examination marker for one of the UK boards. He taught at an international school in Kuwait for 16 years. One of the pioneers of online tuition he’s been tutoring full time online for 3 years. Nigel has very well organised and meticulously prepared notes which are also available as pre-recorded video lessons.
Matthew Barnes : Biology A Level and Medical School Entrance
Matthew is a true pioneer in online tuition. He is based in Devon, and has over 25 years of tutoring experience. What is unique about him is that he has 3 years of experience of only tutoring online. He is one of the most experienced only online tutors out there.
Alex Vearey Roberts : Maths and Physics A Level/GCSE/SAT/ACT
Alex has a PhD and degree in Physics from the University of Aberystwyth. He has 12 years of experience tutoring, and he also tutors online. He is based in Hampstead in London.
Liz Pywell : English and Drama
Liz is based in York, she already has extensive experience of teaching at some top schools around the York area in North England. She is now a private tutor tutoring from home and one of the few English online tutors out there.
Henry Dingle : English Essay and Maths for 14 to 16 year olds
Henry is a specialist tutoring GCSE students and is also into mentoring that age group. The starting point with all prospective students: “Will you take responsibility for your own learning?” is one of Henry’s keystones of tuition. With over 15 years of tutoring experience he is one of the most progressive and forward thinking tutors I have met in person and on video calls. We have tutored several students together before. He tutors from where he lives in Bristol and is one of the few online tuition specialists out there.
The Profs are a tutoring company who I work with closely. They select only the best tutors and are very thorough with who they hire (my interview with them was 1.5 hours long!). Pioneers of online tutoring and founders of BitPaper (used by thousands of tutors worldwide), Education technology and tutoring community, they have some amazing tutors on their books. They specialise mostly with university level tutoring and university entrance but have an excellent cohort of tutors in all subjects for school level tutoring as well. Highly recommend contacting them if you are looking for a tutor.
