Private tutor Cambridge

Classroom teaching is very tough, with increasing demands from management, parents and governors. Whilst the government looks at ways to help teacher workload and raise standards, for many of us the system is close to broken.

Rekindle that joy.

Many teachers choose to work with Tutor My Kids and tutor in Ely, Cambridge and surrounding areas. We’re a joyful bunch of  positive teachers who have our joie de vivre back!

Making a difference.

At Tutor My Kids, private tutors in Cambridgeshire, we see that we are making a difference. Working one-to-one with students in their homes or in schools, our teachers can pin point where the student is having difficulties and effectively fill those gaps. We see that we’re making a difference and some times it can be amazingly quick.

Be appreciated.

When was the last time a parent thanked you for teaching their child? This happens all the time at Tutor My Kids. Our parents really appreciate the difference that we make for their children. This is one of the great joys of tutoring. We all need to feel appreciated.

Be autonomous.

We’re hugely grateful to have such a fantastic body of experienced teachers who tutor in Cambridgeshire for Tutor My Kids. I was having a conversation with a teacher who chose to retire early for all of the areas above, but mostly because she was being asked to teach in a way that she felt wasn’t giving her pupils the best outcomes – educationally and developmentally. It wasn’t the ‘right way’ as she saw it. It wasn’t respecting her professional integrity and experience. We trust our teachers to tutor our students in the ways that they feel will be most effective. Needless to say, she’s a fantastic asset to Tutor My Kids and she’s loving tutoring!

Be flexible.

We love flexible working – it gives us all a better work balance, allows for caring responsibilities, hobbies and more fun! That’s the great thing about tutoring; our teachers work when they want to. Most of our work is after school, but we also have students who we work with during the daytime, so you can pick and choose how and when you work.

Focus on the right things.

This is probably the biggest win with private tutoring. Tuition is tailored to the students’ needs, thus enabling the teaching to focus on the right things for each student. Unlike classroom teaching, there are no distractions from the business of just helping pupils learn.

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.
