What We Do

Athena Tuition is based in Hampstead, London and in Edinburgh, Scotland and specialises in finding the very best private tutors for families.

How We Work

Call or email us with your request and we use our wide network of experienced tutors to find a great match. When we have found the ideal tutor we put them in contact with you and lessons can begin with tutors coming directly to your home.

On top of providing a tailored service for every one of our students, we also focus on changing a student’s perception of the subject. We understand that true success in anything requires real interest and passion. Once the primary learning target has been met, we encourage the student to explore the subject beyond the constraints of the syllabus and to develop an understanding of the subject applications and its wider relevance in the world.

Athena tuition also understands the need to treat each child or student uniquely. Even when we prepare students for specific, highly-specialised examinations like the 11+ or 13+, our tutors find innovative ways to support the students, and to inspire them to enjoy learning. Our tuition is tailored to the child, right from our youngest students, who are only just learning to read, to our oldest, who are studying in universities across the country.

At Athena Tuition, we take a great deal of care matching tutors to students. Our directors interview all of our tutors one-to-one enabling us to know our tutors as individuals and make excellent matches. We also encourage tutors and students to meet one another online, via Skype, if either party is uncertain about the other’s profile and needs. Once a match has been found, we stay in regular contact with you to ensure our tutors continue to teach inspiring, stimulating lessons. We keep in touch in ways that suit our parents and students – whether that be over the phone, by email, by text, or even WhatsApp.

Our Tutors

Our tutors come from diverse backgrounds, from actors to former independent school heads of department to accomplished graduates from a range of Oxbridge and Russell Group universities. We encourage our tutors to develop strong relationships with the families they work for, so they know the student, know the family’s expectations, and learn how to fit tuition into with the busy schedules of Athena families.

We and our tutors meet regularly with schools and teachers to ensure that we understand the needs of a constantly changing curriculum and exam boards. We stay on top of the educational debate, and publish our thoughts on our blog, and on our Twitter account.
