Personal Tutor Directory

Note: All information below has been provided by the tutor themselves and has not been checked or verified and so is in no way a endorsement from The Transfer Tutor. So please ensure you do your own homework and ask appropriate questions when considering a tutor.

Some parents employ a tutor for a number of different reasons, including working on specific areas of weakness or simply confidence building. Therefore, this directory is in direct response the need to find a personal tutor in their area and I therefore I trust it helps.

If you are a tutor and would also like to have your details listed here (for £30 a year) please send £30 to the GoFundMe page which is a charitable donation to NI Cancer Focus, and then use the form in this link to send me your details – Submit Tutor Details.

More about The Transfer Tutor Web-App

The Transfer Tutor’s Online Quizzes provide a fun and interactive way to learn and practise Maths and English questions which are directly aligned to both the AQE and GL specifications.

All quizzes are broken down into manageable topics and there are many, great features including (but not limited to):

  • Mobile friendly and works on any internet device.
  • In many questions, there will be a ‘Hint’ option that offers the child details on the ‘rule’ or aids them to complete it correctly which helps their future application and confidence.
  • The Leaderboard at the end makes the child feel like they’re playing a game and having friendly competition.
  • Good use of colour and graphics which makes it exciting.
  • Parents receives a progress email at the end to let them know how their child did.

Simply choose the licence you need depending on the length of time you need access, click on the blue box, pay and then you’ll be off within minutes.

For any further questions, please contact me or check out the Frequently Asked Questions page.
