How can I switch from my tuition company to Direct Tuition

You first need to check through the paperwork for your current company with regards to what notice period you need to give them. In the mean time we can offer you a FREE trial lesson so you get a feel of what Direct Tuition is about. During this free session, your child will sit through a normal lesson, but by the end of the lesson the tutor will have an idea of your childs ability. Please remember that class tuition may not be suitable for your child, if our tutor feels this is the case, we will inform you.

Will the same tutor teach Maths and Science?

No, we use subject experts for our classes, so you will not see a Maths teacher teach a science class or vice versa. We feel our tutor needs to only concentrate on their strengths and teach their subject, this way the student benefit the most.
