About Us

Horsforth Tutoring Ltd is unique in the marketplace:

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) As a former Head Teacher our founder believes your son / daughter deserves the best and only qualified teachers can undertake tutoring effectively. 

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!

Our Story

In December 2020 our Lead Tutor and Founder - Anthony Smith set up Horsforth Tutoring Limited. 

Frustrated with the lack of qualified teachers offering tutoring and the oversupply of non qualified teachers, Anthony set up Horsforth Tutoring Limited so he could continue to teach Maths and Science and to offer qualified teachers for all subjects across Leeds.

Using his significant expertise in the education sector he has established Horsforth Tutoring Limited so parents benefit from:

*Fully qualified teachers
