As a tutor I like to meet other online tutors and am deeply involved in organising tutor meetups and online communities of tutors.
Following is a list of online tutors, schools and companies who I know and trust to be the very best in delivering online tutoring and education out there. Every tutor here is a full time professional.
La Salle Education Virtual School : Live Online Maths Lessons
I have taken a lot of teacher training with La Salle Education over the last three years. They now offer live online lessons to UK pupils and have some of the best maths teachers that I have ever known. I have met all of them. The virtual school is for UK pupils.

Paul Morgan : Chemistry A Level
Paul has been tutoring full time online for a few years now. A fully qualified and experienced teacher of Chemistry he was also a former nuclear waste research manager for the atomic energy authority in Sellafield. I chat to him every week on video calls and have got to know him very well indeed.
Catherine Rooke : Primary maths and Dyscalculia
Catherine is one of the best online tutors of any subject that I know of. She specialises in teaching primary maths and is the only other tutor I know of that can tutor Dyscalculia well online. This requires incredibly sophisticated teaching knowledge on top of technical knowledge to deliver it well online. She is creative, adaptive and an expert at homeschooling programmes. I make videos with her for tutoring online regularly.

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.
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 is a true pioneer in online tuition and has been tutoring online longer than anyone else I know of. Based in Devon he has nearly 30 years of tutoring experience. He specialises in A Level Biology tutoring and in particular helping with medical school entrace.

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.
