A note from our founder - Alex
In 2013, fuelled by a dissatisfaction with the state of education, I left my job as the Head of Psychology at a top London school after 8 years teaching. I then committed myself to building a tutoring platform that would give all students the chance to access top quality tutors and personalised education.
Today, Tutor House is one of the leading tutoring platforms, offering tailored tuition both online and in-person to students across the UK and the globe. We provide private tuition, adult learning, retakes for A-levels and GCSEs, homeschooling and more...
Our mission is to make learning available and accessible to all students, no matter their age, level or budget. We believe that every student should be given the chance to reach their full academic potential.
Education is the cornerstone of everything we do, but our tutors and students are the reason we have come so far.
“The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.” Aristotle.
