There are many private tutoring agencies, so what makes Cornerstone Tutors different?
Quality of tuition
We work only with tutors who have significant school teaching experience, and a strong track record helping students achieve clear academic aims.
All of our tutors go through a rigorous selection procedure, including an in-depth face-to-face interview with our Director. We test subject knowledge and examine past achievements. We assess personality and ability to engage students of different ages, and evaluate academic profiles.

Our aim is to maximise student potential. By assessing ability, we set realistic but challenging goals. For each student our tutors develop a personalised tutoring programme with clear outcomes and milestones.
When building a picture of a student’s abilities and learning needs, we take a consultative approach. During the initial consultation, our Director will discuss your requirements to gain an in-depth understanding.
We strive to select just the right tutor for the student and create personalised tutoring programmes. Unlike many private tutoring agencies, we know our tutors well and this gives us the opportunity to match tutors to particular assignments.
Clear step-by-step tuition process
From the initial parent consultation to the final review, our tuition process has been designed to ensure students receive the tuition they need, and parents are supported throughout.

The passion we have for tutoring students is reflected in the service we provide and the results we achieve. We are sincere and discreet. We are genuinely concerned to see our students succeed. We are wholly committed to delivering the highest level of service. Our Director is regularly in contact with parents throughout the process.
Tutoring that complements school learning
As school is a student’s primary learning environment, we ensure that our tutoring programmes complement classroom progression. If parents are happy for us to do so, we discuss students’ academic progress and standing with their schoolteachers where possible so tuition can be more formally integrated with classwork.
We support our tutors
We proactively support our tutors, and we are always available to provide help with any challenges they may face. We are in regular contact to discuss anything from tuition programmes to career goals.
