WHO ARE WE?
Carfax Tutors represents some of the most highly-qualified and well-prepared tutors in London and seven locations around the world. We are the only agency to have grown from within a school, and we use the expertise of our teachers in Oxford, as well as our experienced staff, in order to provide both tuition and home-schooling in London, the UK and around the world.
We believe that tuition needs to have clear aims, and that it will not by itself guarantee (or worse, buy) success in the ever-more competitive entrance examinations for schools and universities. We are proud to be Founding Members of The Tutors’ Association, our industry’s professional body, and to have been awarded numerous prizes throughout our existence.
We keep our group of tutors small, unlike many agencies who have hundreds of them on their books, meaning that we know our tutors well to ensure a good fit.
We understand how important the selection process is when considering a tutor. Finding the right match for you and your family is absolutely vital. Our approach is to establish specific goals for tuition: We work hard to ensure all preferences, goals and aspirations of each parent and pupil are noted and taken into consideration when arranging a set tuition plan for a pupil.
Our dedicated Carfax team works carefully to match each pupil with a tutor bearing in mind the pupil’s individual educational background as well as their personality.
Following your first lesson with a Carfax tutor, we will get in touch to discuss your first impressions and to check that you are satisfied with all the arrangements. We will stay in regular contact throughout your course and we will always be available to discuss any preference or concerns you might have.
