Trefoil Tutors was established in 2011 with a mission to bring a new level of professionalism to tutoring. Providing outstanding teaching and learning and enriching a student’s educational experience are at the forefront of all that we do.
We offer specialist small group tuition for Years 3 to 13, in order to augment and support the teaching that students receive in school.
Our business is based on three foundational values: Personal, Passionate, Professional.
Being a tutor at Trefoil Tutors goes far beyond providing a platform for outstanding teaching and learning. Our tutors are seen as mentors to students as much as they are teachers. Getting to know students and their families during their time with us is a cornerstone of what we hold to be important and is paramount in ensuring we can communicate effectively with our clients.
At Trefoil Tutors, we are equally committed to sharing our subject knowledge as well as our love of the subjects we teach with our students. Making lessons dynamic, interesting and engaging helps us develop an enjoyment of the subject and promote life-long learning in our students. We are unashamedly geeky!
All too often, tutoring is seen as an additional job. Our team see tutoring differently - we approach it as a vocation in itself. We aim to professionalise all we do, both with regards to our tutoring and our administrative procedures. We use the exceptionally high standards of top Independent and Grammar Schools as the benchmark we hold ourselves to.

In this week's Senior Tutor Update, our Director of Studies Rebecca shares her advice as students revise for their first assessment this academic year. Our Senior Tutor Vivek comments on the importance of getting into consistent working habits as we settle into the Autumn Term.
Have a great week, everyone!
“It was such a fantastic idea for Vivek and Milda to organise the 11+ Parents’ Evening because I had no clue about 11+: I didn’t know what to expect, I was scared from what people had told me. But coming here it made me feel more comfortable about it. There’s nothing as good as feeling and knowing that you are supported.”
