Tutor House is one of London’s leading Tutor platforms, supplying thousands of students seeking academic help with tutors who are qualified in subjects across the board, from Maths and Physics to English and Religious Studies, and everything that comes in between.
Having taken London by a storm, Tutor House is expanding, and Birmingham is our first port of call. With exams becoming increasingly rigorous and competition for university places on the rise, demand for private tutors in Birmingham is stronger than ever.
We offer personal support for all of our tutors, and will be there for you, whatever you may need. There’s on-platform messaging system that allows tutors to communicate with their students which is kept on record – leaving no room for error or confusion.
Tutor House provide aspiring and experienced tutors with a trusted and reliable platform from which to operate, whilst also ensuring that they can work on a schedule that suits them.
There are endless benefits to becoming a personal tutor. One of the best things about the role is that it is flexible. You are in control and can make sure that your sessions are arranged at a time that is convenient for you. Unlike lots of jobs out there, becoming a tutor does not require you to come into an office or be available for nine hours a day. Instead, you can create a schedule that perfectly suits you.
Furthermore, tutoring sessions don’t have to be face to face. If you’d rather, you can offer your services online, so neither you nor your student need to leave the comfort of your homes.
Secondly, becoming a private tutor is a great way to boost your income. Whether you are a full-time teacher looking to make some extra money or a third-year university student looking to fund your Starbucks addiction, tutoring is a great source of additional income.
As a tutor with Tutor House, you can set your own price and charge as much as you would like for each session.
Becoming a private tutor is an extremely rewarding process, as you can make a real difference to someone’s life, both in an academic sense and outside of the classroom. If a student is struggling with one or more subjects, it can be extremely disheartening and have a detrimental effect on their overall academic experience and on their self-esteem. As a personal tutor, you can change all that and turn a student’s life around.
As a Tutor House tutor, you will have the opportunity to put your expertise to great use by helping someone to achieve the very best grades that they can and, in turn, boost their confidence and develop a real rapport. Trust us, nothing beats watching someone begin to thrive, academically and socially, and knowing you’re the reason why.

There are a number of places in London and throughout the UK to retake your A-levels. The difference with resitting A-levels at Tutor House is flexibility. And here are 3 reasons as to why Tutor House is the best for retaking A-levels in London:
For the majority of subjects at A-level you can just enter for summer (May/June) exams and take all your exams then, for your A-level retake. Under the new linear A-level’s you must sit all exams at the end of the academic year. Students who are retaking languages, like French, Spanish or German have oral exams to retake in April time. And those who are retaking English A-level, Geography A-level and History A-level and a few other A-level subjects will have coursework assessments. These can be submitted early. Usually by April each year, but the sooner the better.
Tutor House runs both long A-level retake courses from September – June each year, but we also run intensive short retake courses for all A-level’s. These short, intensive courses, run from January – June every year. As there are no January retakes anymore for A-level’s, both courses run to June. Usually students have 3-4 hours of contact time her subjects per week. If students are studying an A-level from scratch or they are converting from a Pre-U subject to an A-level, we would recommend 5 hours of tutoring per week.
The best, obviously. You can view some of our specialist retake tutors here.
We only work with highly experienced tutors. Most are ex-teachers, some are examiners and all tutors are DBS checked and interviewed. We have a great track record of improving grades for A-levels each year. Most students improve by at least two grades. As students get individual and tailored tutoring for their A-levels, tutors can focus on a variety of ways to improve grades, whichever one works best for the student.
We are around 20% cheaper than any sixth form retake college. Prices start from £3950 per year, per subject, for a long retake course. And from £3000 for our short retake A-level course.
Yes, you can. The only complication is the exams. You will need to be available in May/June each year to retake your exams. A growing number of students are retaking their A-levels online, they have ongoing online tutoring every week. Some students travel to London once a month for face-to-face tutoring with their teacher, but otherwise, all tutoring is conducted online via our online platform.
Now. We accept students throughout the academic year, but we recommend an absolute minimum of 6 months. We can only do so much with less time. Most students undertake our 8-month retake program and complete their A-level retake within one academic year.
Good luck and contact us if you need any help or have any questions:

Imagine being in a 45-minute business meeting with colleagues. You’re the manager; you want to make sure everyone’s voice is heard, qualm anyone’s specific problems, iron out specific details to make sure everyone understands the next steps of your project, while at the same time trying to get across exactly why the meeting was called in the first place. In the typical workplace, with only 45-minutes to do all the above, one would imagine that the meeting would consist of four or five colleagues. Now apply the above scenario with 30 colleagues.
Thirty colleagues attempting to listen to you, while Jonny big-balls in the corner makes snide remarks (the office joker), while you need to pry meek Bill to actually speak his mind. This includes Nadia and Melissa who are the office suck-ups, trying to finish your sentiments and sentences before you’ve even finished speaking. That’s not to mention all the other 26 vibrant and different office personalities shoved in between. That just doesn’t work. It couldn’t. And yet, this is what we demand of our teachers in a school environment everyday.
Everyday we shove 30+ children into a class at their school, forcing them to actively listen and absorb everything the teacher says within a 45-minute to one-hour session. Moreover, if they have any concerns or clarifications needed, they have to compete with fellow students to ask questions and if time’s up then they will need to seek the answers independently – seemingly overriding the whole point of the teacher. So we then have those that question why tutoring is such a huge market; why parents across the UK and beyond are turning so quickly to supplementary education. Even as the new academic year begins, before students have even returned to their desks, we are having hundreds of calls come in from parents trying to find a way to enhance their child’s learning.
Moreover, if you wait, by the time Christmas holidays approach, it is already seemingly too late. Because teachers are spread so thinly at school, it is often difficult to gauge an individual child’s progress unless by assessments, and then it’s too late to actually influence the outcome of said test. And by then tutors are almost fully booked as well. Of course, it’s important to note that not all children are on the same academic level; some will be unable to keep up with the teacher’s pace. While this would be manageable with a smaller teaching group, with 30 pupils, it makes sense for parents to seek out a tutor to ensure that their child doesn’t fall behind drastically.
In terms of independent study outside of school time, textbooks, free forums and Wikipedia can only go so far; students who learn differently to the traditional classroom setting could employ a tutor to use different teaching methods to further the child’s understanding. We’ve seen too, that the amount of homework given to students is approaching draconian levels. Often students spend up to three hours an evening completing their homework for the school day. Parents know all-to-well the nightly struggle to sit down with their children to ensure it is completed, but sometimes to no avail. Who can blame them? Having completed an arduous day of school, their restless mentality would rather see them running around, climbing trees or playing Candy Crush. Alas, this isn’t so. Parents often then become dependent on tutors to extend the school-time mentality, bringing structure to the child’s homework support.
Perhaps the huge rise in the UK tutoring industry is an indication that the current 30-1 system isn’t working; or perhaps, it’s proving that a child’s education and learning preferences are far more nuanced than we had previously imagined. Some prefer the classic whiteboard scenario, while others need to touch, feel, read, imagine, watch, do and learn – either singularly or all at once. In a modern business environment, which arguably, a number of our school children will grow into; we encourage creativity, thinking on one’s feet, showing confidence and working in small groups. None of these things we prepare our children for in a traditional classroom setting; where the main goal is to memorise and regurgitate. Tutors bring a more distinct refinement in terms of preparing our children for this environment. They learn to hold conversations with older, more authoritarian figures; and these figures in turn, demand their full attention, creativity and input (similar to a contemporary business environment).
We have assisted more parents than ever in homeschooling their children who believe for them that the current school and classroom environment isn’t working for their student; preferring to employ tutors full time. This isn’t a decision made lightly. It’s evident current classroom decorum isn’t working for all the 30 kids that have to sit through it for seven years; causing parents to look to tutors to supplement their education. Moving forward, schools must reconsider the modern classroom, not only for it’s high number of occupants but also due to it’s stagnant content. Imagine if there was a test tomorrow is “how to hold a conversation”; there was no prep, no textbook, just the child and an adult face-to-face, talking about the world around them. How well would they do?
