Our mindfulness-based tuition programme will not only help your child to develop more academic rigour; they’ll also learn new skills around easing performance anxiety, improving time management and study habits, as well as developing the ability to take ownership over their own learning.

Our Math tutors are based across Berkshire and Buckinghamshire with many of them working online. All of our Math tutors are experienced classroom teachers and love helping children find their Maths confidence!

Our English tutors are likewise based across Buckinghamshire and Berkshire and can offer online tutoring classes. These English tutors are the best because they know how to teach comprehension skills, offer creative writing workshops, and encourage a voracious vocabulary in a fun and engaging way.

So whether you're looking for an online tutor, an in-person tutor, or a home education teacher, our Maths and English teachers are the best option.

Our tutors are specialists in providing 1-to-1 tuition and small group classes

Maths tuition:
Whether your child feels frustrated with Maths and lacks confidence, or your child is looking to be stretched to continue developing subject mastery, our experienced classroom teachers deliver a Maths programme that suits their needs, keeps their learning style in mind and gets results!

English tuition:

Does your child struggle to answer comprehension questions? Do they resist writing ideas on paper? Are they unsure how to decipher a poem or construct an argument? Our experienced English teachers will boost their confidence and help them master creative writing, reading and grammar!

11 plus tuition & Common Entrance tuition:
If your child is preparing for an upcoming exam then connecting with a tutor who can help them academically and emotionally will set them apart. Exams are difficult and can cause stress and anxiety. Our teachers are all mindfulness trained and can provide exam coaching.

GCSE Maths and English tuition:
Preparing for GCSEs can feel daunting. Organising a study schedule, being efficient with note-taking, having academic rigour. Working with our exam specialists will support your child's GCSE success and their mental health! Teen anxiety is common amongst GCSE students. Support your child with our specialists.


No two children are the same, so no tutoring programme should be the same either! This is why we create a personalised tuition plan that is completely bespoke for your child.

V did really enjoy the poem (The Raven). When I asked her about it she started reciting it to me! She said that it’s mysterious and really dramatic and is now her favourite poem. Was a very good choice!

I’m so glad that Z opened up and spoke to you! You very quickly leaped over the first hurdle! As you’ve probably guessed, he is quite negative and not very expressive. When he came out of his session with you and said it was “ok” that was massive! “Ok” to him is the same as “fantastic” to another child!

She is loving Comprehension Club – especially this term’s focus on Poetry. Thank you so much! She has sent her poems to her Nanny to read as she also writes poetry!

She came out of the session this evening and showed me what she had done. She said she really liked algebra so that’s a pretty good result I think!

Hi Sarahlynn, I would like to say that we are very happy that E got a scholarship and Northampton High School and would like to say a big thank you for teaching and encouraging her on obtaining her goal. She is very happy! Thank you so much.

Hi Sarahlynn, just to update you, * has been invited to interviews at Winchester and Charterhouse and we’ve just found out today that Eton have invited him too! We are over the moon. Thanks again for all of your help and support.

We are really pleased with how much the boys are enjoying the time with you. Thank you for your kindness and knowledge in helping them! It’s really wonderful to see how they are enjoying and being more confident with maths and also themselves!

Thank you for creating the Comprehension Club. My daughter really loves seeing all of her ‘club friends’ every week and I can hear her confidence really building as she explores these comprehension questions with you. It’s been a real weight off.

Just wanted to let you know that * has really been enjoying his recent English lessons with you. We haven’t been experiencing any of the usual difficulties with him which is a really good sign. He has a more positive attitude towards his learning which is great to see! Thank you so much for the wonderful ways you find to keep both of the boys motivated.

We just wanted to share that S has been awarded “most improved in English” award this year and we could not be more pleased! His work with you has boosted his confidence and dare I say, he enjoys English now!
