Tutoring Services & Private Tuition

Your child deserves to thrive


As an experienced teacher, I can tell you no two children are the same, so why would you expect their tuition to be the same. You just wouldn’t, right?

Liz and I make sure each tuition session is tailored exactly around your child’s needs. And whether they work with us one to one or in a small group, your child will:

Build confidence
Learn to have a go, even in challenging situations
Feel motivated and rewarded

That’s because our sessions are about more than learning facts and methods. Both Liz and I think building a supportive relationship where your child can ask questions, discuss their thinking and learn to challenge themselves is key to helping your child thrive.

And our tutees and parents agree!

"I've gone up from C stream into B stream this week!"
"It has been his 'my academic time' and we can see the way he has grown in confidence as he continues to excel in maths in class."
"Thank you for supporting P with her maths. She's a different child now, so confident"
High Bickington
"My step-daughter is flying with maths. She loves your sessions,"

I’d love to chat with you and let you know exactly how our team can support your child. 

Get in touch.

Sarah has really helped improve our daughters maths capability, understanding and confidence. The remote learning setup has been a real benefit, both convenient and able to join from the relaxed environment of our own home. Will highly recommend Next Steps Tutors.

Since attending the online lessons there has been a marked improvement in our daughters confidence. Her increased confidence has led to a better understanding of maths. Poppy genuinely enjoys the lessons and Sarah’s easy going nature has enabled engagement. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone who’s children need some support to increase their self esteem and confidence in maths

Next step tutors have been phenomenal for my son and prepared him greatly for the 11+. Eshan has gone for days talking about how magnificent Sarah has been for him so far. Sarah has covered and made sure my son was secure for the test date. These lessons have been astonishingly great for my son and has helped him with so much, especially with areas he used to find difficult.Whatever his results are, he will continue his lessons with Next Step, because he knows he will be taught so much more in the future. I know for sure they put their best effort into these lessons to prepare children. Many tutors have been with my son, but this one stood out with the high quality lessons. They have patience and are calm through every lesson, I don’t normally write reviews : but Next step Tutors deserve more recognition just because of their amazing behaviour and love for children. They push everyone so far for outstanding results. Great work!

Getting Started With Tuition

If you don’t see the answer to our Frequently Asked Questions please ask!

Straight after you sign up with us, we will send you an email with the links you need to access our knowledge organiser packs, printable resources, links to our games and curriculum guides including a pre-curriculum booklet (for group tuition). We will also invite you to a dedicated Google Classroom where you’ll be able to access replay videos of your lessons and optional homework tasks and challenges. 

Children can learn online from a tablet, laptop or desktop. We don’t recommend learning from a phone due to image size. The only software that your child will need to access is Zoom. If you are not familiar with Zoom we are happy to offer a complimentary 30 minute session to familiarise your child with the controls before your course starts. See our blog on tech for online learning to find the best resources for your budget.

All children learn at their own pace. Some will settle quickly and enthusiastically into their new style of learning whilst others might take some more time. 

There really is no one-size-fits-all approach. If you are concerned about your child’s progress, your tutor is on hand to discuss their learning.

Yes! Our one to one sessions are designed with your child in mind and are planned around their individual needs.

Whether you choose group or one to one tuition, your child will be allocated their own slot within the week. As a result, we ask that missed lessons are paid for. However, our group tuition recording will be available in their classroom. We will always do our best to find a suitable time for a catch-up session where possible.
