About Us

Our Ethos

At Trefoil Tutors, we do not see professional tutoring as simply supervising a child’s school work or providing them with extra worksheets, as many of our competitors do. Specialised group lessons at Trefoil Tutors offer a completely different approach, combining best practice from the country’s top Independent Schools and Universities. We work to augment and support, rather than replace, a child’s educational development at school. With over a decade of experience in delivering private tutoring, we truly believe that small-group lessons, taught and run in the right way, are the future of education.

With a growing number of full-time tutors, our teaching team see tutoring as a vocation in itself, rather than an additional role. We work with qualified teachers, academics with a proven track record and tutors with a talent for working with children. We offer our tutors professional development seminars led by qualified and experienced teachers and provide them with teaching resources of the highest quality. All our tutors and staff are DBS checked and undergo annual safeguarding training, first aiders are always on site and all lessons take place in our purpose-built classrooms in Elstree.

Providing a perfect balance between teacher-led interaction, peer-to-peer group work and personalised feedback, our group lessons provide an ideal mix of activities. The regularity of lessons, assignment and assessments combined with Schemes of Work that have been created in-house provide the ideal platform for continuity and momentum for learning.

We believe that our commitment to providing exceptional educational services does not finish at the end of each lesson. Our online portal and dedicated office team help ensure that there is a close connection between the student, the tutor and the parent. We aim to support our students and their families through all of the educational choices they make and run a series of advice evenings throughout the year.


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.
