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.
With a growing number of full-time tutors, our teaching team see tutoring as a vocation in itself, rather than an additional role. 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.
Providing a perfect balance between teacher-lead interaction, peer group work, personalised feedback and enhanced contact time, our group lessons provide an ideal mix of activities. Regularity of lessons and specially developed Schemes of Work provide continuity and momentum for learning.
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.
