Why Horsforth Tutoring?

Horsforth Tutoring Ltd is unique in the marketplace:

Firstly, we use only fully QUALIFIED teachers - reassuringly targeting the work to your son / daughters age range and qualification level. (Many agencies use graduates or under graduates with no, or very limited teaching experience - our founder is a former Head Teacher and we believe this is simply not acceptable.)

We constantly quality assure our tutors work and request your FEEDBACK to make on-going improvements. 

All tutors must have a DBS check to work with your son / daughter.

All students / parents and tutors receive online access to an ILP (Individual Learning Plan) so you can track and monitor your son / daughters progress. 

All of our tutors are self employed so you set the fee with the tutor when you commence their work. (The tutors pay us commission so its hassle free pricing for you)

Lessons are regularly quality assured by an experienced Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher

We offer lessons to all age students from primary through to A Level!

Facebook - we operate groups for parents and tutors so you can interact with other parents and maximise the benefits of tutoring!

How it Works!

We do all the hard work to find you a tutor!

1. You fill in a simple form to request  a tutor matched to your child's needs.

2. We then match your request to our friendly local team of qualified teachers and provide you with details about how we work so you can be assured of the process and quality.

3. The tutor will contact you and will arrange a fee (that includes our commission) to meet your needs as well as discussing your requirements in detail.

4. We will send you an agreement / help sheet with links to the ILP and everything you need to know about Leeds Tutoring and how things will work - we even provide you with links to all of our resources and help functionality.

5. Your tutor starts working with your child.

6. You get access to our online Learning Plan so you can track the progress of your son / daughter.


7. You can feedback to us at any time using simple forms!  

 

Calendar and how Tutoring Takes Place

We recommend tutoring takes place over 39 weeks a year (matching school term dates) and if the tutor wishes you can break this down into 12 affordable payments paid monthly to the tutor. 

When you express your interest in us you tell us which days / times of the week work best for you!

Lessons are scheduled at a time convenient to you and the tutor

Types of Tutoring

The prices below relate to the following types of tutoring:

  • In your home tuition

  • In the tutor’s home tuition

  • Online tuition (using a platform like Zoom)


Note: online lessons are really effective and allow the tutor to interact and use advanced resources - it is sometimes better than in person!

What you pay

You pay the amount agreed in the table above TO THE TUTOR and they pass on our commission. 


Payment for Tutoring

Tutors receive payment for their fee, and the agency commission, directly from the student/parent at the end of each lesson. The tutor forwards any agency commission collected during a calendar month to Horsforth Tutoring (parent company of Leeds Tutoring) at the end of the month.


Simultaneous Tuition and Reduced-Rate Tuition

A tutor with two pupils from the same family taught simultaneously should charge about 10% more than the charge for individual tuition. For each further member of the same family taught simultaneously, charge a further 10% more than the individual rate up to a maximum of twice the individual rate. Agency commission is increased in the same proportion.  

For simultaneous tuition of pupils from different families add 25% to the individual rate for each student up to twice the individual rate. Agency commission is increased in the same proportion.
