Inspiring students to develop a life long love of English

Primary Level English Tutor

A primary level English tutor can help students at any stage of primary English education develop their spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary skills.

A tutor will foster the communication skills that provide access to the whole curriculum as well as encouraging an appreciation of language and literature.

Primary level English tuition from the Early Years Foundation Stage through Key Stages 1 and 2 will equip students with a thorough understanding of the English language (spelling, punctuation, grammar, comprehension, handwriting, writing in many forms) and the confidence to use it in various contexts.

Tuition will provide the fluency in English necessary for success in all subjects.

Primary Level Tuition

Primary education is the first stage of formal education in the UK. It takes place between the ages of 4 and 11, and educates students from Reception, Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) to Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6).


Most of our tutors are based in London and tutor students on an hourly basis, travelling from one family home to another.

The minimum lesson length is an hour and the tutor may request travel expenses depending where you live and where they are travelling from.

Popular lesson slots are after school, between 4.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m., and at the weekends. If a child is out of school, the lessons can take place during the day.

Out of London

We can arrange a tutor to travel to your home if you live outside of London.

In order to make this viable for the tutor, the minimum lesson time is 2 hours (but you can book 3 or more hours).

If you live further afield, a day of tuition where 4 hours are broken up by lunch is a very popular option. This arrangement often happens at the weekends and during half-terms and holidays.

We ask that you cover the cost of the tutor’s travel time as well as their travel costs.


If you live abroad, or are embarking on a period of extended travel, you may request a residential tutor to support your children.

This can be for a period of anything from a few weeks to a year – or even longer.

The residential tutor normally works Monday to Friday. Tuition is either worked around school hours or arranged according to the family’s schedule if the child is not attending school.

The curriculum can either mirror what the child would be doing at school or be tailor-made to the student (whether following a traditional curriculum, or allowing greater freedom in what is taught such as project-based learning).


If your location means it is tricky for you to meet a tutor face-to-face, we can arrange tuition online.

Tutors on our books are teaching students all over the world: from France and Italy, to the US and Russia. We are experts at handling lesson arrangements over different time zones.

We are satisfied that even if students can’t meet tutors in person, they can still benefit from the knowledge and energy tutors bring to their online lessons.

Online tuition is conducted via Skype with a selection of other screen and material-sharing software. This ensures that lessons are fully interactive and that students gain the maximum from the sessions.
