About Us

How We Work

Trefoil Tutors is unlike other tutoring companies that does more than simply advertising tutors. We work closely with a small pool of hand-picked tutors, who are specialists in tutoring their subject and who come from the country’s top universities (Oxford, Cambridge, Warwick and others). A professional teacher offers our tutors fortnightly development seminars, allowing them to continuously build on their pedagogical skills.

We do not offer a “one-size-fits-all” mentality, but rather adapt our teaching to fit the individual needs of every child, supporting and augmenting their educational development at school.

Our teaching model is based on a combination of one-to-one tuition, paying great attention to the individual needs of each child and adjusting the teaching plan accordingly in order to achieve the best results. We describe our teaching method as Planning-Teaching-Reflecting. We provide our tutors with resources and support in structuring their lessons and task design; delivering these efficiently during the lessons; evaluating and assessing the progress made in order to adjust future lesson plans.

Our tutors will come to your home, or meet your child at our teaching space in North London which is adapted for individual tuition, offering ideal conditions for learning. Depending on the individual learning needs, achievement targets and previous attainment levels of your child, we will endeavour to find the tutor who fits your requirements best. Through discussion with you and your son or daughter, we will design a personal plan to help your child achieve the desired results. We do not operate on a one-size-fits-all mentality – our experienced and friendly tutors will ensure that the plan fits both your and your child’s requirements.

As our client, you will receive continuous feedback about the progress your child is making, tips on how to improve their individual learning, verbal or written reports on homework and lessons, and any other information you may request from us.

All tutors at Trefoil have passed enhanced DBS checks so you can be sure that your child is learning in a safe environment.
