As a qualified secondary school Mathematics teacher having taught privately for the last 4 years, the power of one-to-one or small groups tuition is clear. I have had countless experiences of tutoring students of varying abilities where a small amount of hours has meant great leaps in progress and level.  

As a mathematics teacher, my experiences of tuition of Year 5 and 6 level students (for SATs or 11+ entrance examinations), saw most students accelerate through a complete level (normally taking a year in school) in two to three months of weekly lessons.

The teachers providing Mathematics and English tuition are Masters qualified secondary school teachers, they both work in schools and teach privately.  Both teachers hold current "enhanced" CRB disclosure certificates (i.e. they have been police checked) which will be displayed on every first lesson.
