Working for Tutor My Kids has reminded me why I originally wanted to teach

TutorMyKids private tutor

I’m so grateful for this amazing testimonial from one of our amazing teachers who tutors in Ely.

‘Working for Tutor My Kids has reminded me why I originally wanted to teach – to make a difference in children’s learning and confidence, and see them progress.  As a senior manager for the last twelve years of my full time career, I got further and further away from the children and deeper and deeper into paperwork about why they weren’t progressing fast enough. Each child is an individual, has different needs and responds to different learning styles. The pupils I work with through TutorMyKids all benefit from a plan that I design specifically for them and deliver on a 1:1 basis. I see them progress and gain confidence through small steps – and realise that what I am doing is making that difference. Being a tutor with TutorMyKids is so rewarding – I have regained confidence in my teaching ability, working with delightful children and parents who enjoy seeing their children progress.’

I think this hits the nail on the head of why so many teachers are leaving the classroom and looking at other ways in which they can use their years of teaching experience in a way that is valued, that is acknowledged, has freedom and autonomy, enables teachers to do a great job (and feel like they are) and make a difference to pupils.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Why Did you Go into Teaching?

Did you go into teaching to work with children and see them blossom? Do you enjoy those ‘light bulb’ moments when they understand? Do you feel amazing when you know you’ve made that difference? Do you love sharing those wonderful moments? Do you want to work with people like that? Do you want to be responsible for your work? Do you love it when someone says ‘Thank you for teaching my child?’

Yes, us too. 

One-to-one teaching gives you just that.

Tutor My Kids is a small, welcoming company based in Ely. We help families by arranging private tuition for students who have fallen behind. We offer high quality, tailored tuition, in the students’ homes, after school and at weekends and occasionally have daytime tuition too. Our clients are based across Cambridgeshire.

Our clients are fabulous, positive, thoughtful, straightforward, carefully-vetted people who want to help their children for all the right reasons – to help them regain their confidence, catch-up and reach their full potential. Many of our parents and carers recommend us to their friends and colleagues so our business grows steadily and organically; we don’t advertise for new clients.

Our teachers are just amazing. We have a greatly valued team of fantastic, enthusiastic, respected, committed and motivated teachers who love what they do.

We have the most demand for English, maths and science tuition, at all levels – primary and secondary, through to A level, but sometimes our students don’t fit into the standard boxes. We often need primary teachers who are also able to teach year 7-9 maths and/or English. GCSE. A level teachers area also in demand.

Tutor My Kids is committed to safer recruitment.


New_private_tutors_joined TutorMyKids_in_StIves and_Huntingdon.


We’re delighted to welcome two more teachers to our friendly, passionate, committed team of teachers who tutor children in Cambridgeshire. These teachers are working as private tutors in St Ives and Huntingdon area with primary school aged children.

These teachers have decided to take a break from full-time teaching to fit in with other commitments, but still want to help children to learn and see them blossom. Working as a private tutor is the perfect way to achieve this. Our teachers says that being able to actually teach children, without being bogged down in paperwork,  is the joy of being a private tutor for Tutor My Kids. Also, being recognised for your skills and abilities is something that can feel lacking when teaching full-time, whereas with private tutoring, it’s the norm to be thanked for teaching students. We love that!


We offer a haven from the often fraught work of full-time teaching, meaning that you’re responsible for and have control over your own work – teaching what your students need, not what the curriculum dictates. Our students love having a one-to-one tutor and our teachers love feeling respected for their abilities. Read When was the last time a parent thanked you for teaching their child? for more inspiration.

Our parents are positive, straightforward people who simply want their children to thrive; to achieve to their capabilities, but most of all, simply to give their children confidence. Confidence is the word used by our parents and carers most.

Our tutors are hugely valued by us, at Tutor My Kids and by our parents who appreciate that what we do is always in our pupils’ best interests.


Tutor My Kids is a small friendly company who organises tuition for school children. It’s usually at the parent/carer’s home. We recruit like-minded teachers who love working with children and are passionate and committed to helping them learn.  We operate safer recruitment.

Where are the kids tutored?

Our teachers tutor in Ely and surrounding areas, in the parents’ home, so you don’t need to be set up to tutor at your home.

Do I need to follow a teaching plan?

All our tuition is tailored to our pupils’ needs. The goal’s are agreed with parents but as a qualified teacher, you set the activities to achieve the goals and fill the gaps for each pupil.

What do other tutors say?

Our teachers who work as tutors in Ely area all say how rewarding one-to-one tuition is. Working with children, addressing their individual needs, enables you to actually teach. Seeing the results, is great and so much more immediate than whole class teaching. What’s fabulous is hearing the feedback from school too, when the extra work and skills are transferred to school.

Thank You

As teachers, with so many pressures on us with the curriculum, assessment, marking, it can feel like a heavy workload. The reward is seeing the results when your class or a number of children or one student, suddenly gets it. This is utterly priceless. This is why we teach.

This is why we teach

When I received this, I was over the moon!

“Rachel – I just wanted to put on record what an asset Alyshia is.  She is absolutely fantastic with Mackenzie! He loves his sessions with her and always comes away smiling and, as a result of her input, his confidence has grown considerably.  It is so nice to see him happy again and getting pleasure from learning.  The feedback provided by Alyshia is excellent and she always talks me through everything they have done and her plans for the forthcoming weeks.  The last couple of months have been tough with Mackenzie struggling so much at his old school and eventually changing schools just before Easter, but Alyshia has been so excellent, and it has helped Mackenzie with the transition with the reassurance and consistency that Alyshia has provided.”
And the first thing I did was forward it to Alyshia who is an amazing teacher who is working 1 to 1 as a tutor for us at Tutor My Kids in Huntingdon. It’s a joy to me to be able to pass on these heartfelt thanks to our fabulous tutors!
