We do things
Unlike other tuition providers we don’t offer a tutor matching service. We understand scrolling through hundreds of english tutors can be overwhelming and leave you feeling even more confused!
We have a small team of inspiring hand-picked tutors so quality is guaranteed. Each english tutor is completely invested in your child, they work hard to build strong relationships with each child so that they have the growth mindset and are ready to learn.

English Tuition works
My son started going to VAKs initially for Maths tuition but after a short while I was so impressed with the way the classes were run and the progress he was continually making that I decided to send him to English Tuition also. I can’t praise the whole VAKs set-up enough from the Tutors through to the admin staff – and I endorse them because I’ve had Tutors on and off for my children from primary through to secondary but I wish I’d discovered VAKs a lot sooner.
Real people, Real teaching, Real learning

Our study programmes are tailored to meet the unique needs of each child, catering to a wide range of abilities and aspirations.

At VAKS, we take a personalised approach to match your child with the right tutor and group. We begin with an initial consultation to understand your child’s specific needs and goals. Then, we offer a complimentary taster session to give your child the opportunity to try out the programme and meet the tutor. Following the session, the tutor provides detailed feedback on your child’s performance, which we use to create a customised plan to help your child achieve their specific goals. We then schedule a follow-up call with you to discuss the feedback, our recommendations and to ensure that the programme is meeting your expectations.

We recommend grouped tuition as our research has provided a number of benefits for students, including:
Shared learning experiences: In a group setting, students can learn from and with each other, which can create a more engaging and interactive learning environment.
Peer support: Grouped tuition can help students to feel less alone in their struggles and can provide a sense of camaraderie and support among students.
Structured learning: A group setting can provide a more structured and organised learning environment.
Variety of perspectives: A group setting can expose students to different perspectives and ways of learning, which can be beneficial in understanding a subject matter.
Practice and feedback: Grouped tuition can help students to practice what they have learned in a safe and supportive environment and get feedback from the tutor and peers.
Relevant to exam preparation: For certain subjects like math, science and languages, grouped tuition can be very helpful in preparing for exams.
Reduced anxiety: Grouped tuition can help to reduce anxiety by providing a supportive and non-threatening environment for students to learn and practice new skills.
