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.

The summer holidays are an important time for students to take a break and recharge their batteries - at the same time, parents often worry about academic regression which may make the start of the new academic year harder than expected. Today, we are happy to share with you a video from our Q&A series where our lead tutor Vivek Gathani shares his advice about how to make the most of the summer holidays and strike the right balance between work and play.

“I have seen massive changes in my daughter’s attitude to maths. She has gone leaps and bounds in confidence when approaching papers. She has learnt topics before she’s had to learn them at school, or has just had subjects reconfirmed for her during her tutoring at Trefoil. As a parent, I am very happy that we've enjoyed coming to lessons at Trefoil Tutors and we are looking to continue – especially as we have seen such improvement!”

With the final lessons of the year now over, we would like to thank our students and their parents for all of their hard work and support. The 2020/2021 academic year was one of the most unusual and challenging we have encountered and our tutors will now take a short break.
“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.”
