"The initial meeting between my son and Mark was extremely good and reassuring for my son who like most 15 year old boys was not entirely sold on having a tutor. He talked with my son at the right level and made him feel it was the right thing for him. The tutor we have found is excellent and really understands my son.”

On-Line Tuition Available Now
Our On-Line Virtual Platform allows you to work with a one to one tutor at any time and in any location. This option has never been so vital as it is now. It is enabling us to help thousands of students to continue with their studies during this testing period, while ensuring the safety of both student and tutor.
The tutors we work with at Tutor Doctor Berkshire can all tutor on-line using a dedicated virtual platform called Bramble. Your tutor will be there at the agreed time to tutor one to one, just as if they were sitting in the room with you. The system is intuitive and simple to use, providing real-time audio and visual contact with the tutor, a suite of resources including a live whiteboard for both parties to write on, file sharing, instant import of the students work for the tutor to review, and other functions allowing the tutor to design the perfect lesson every time. After the lesson a full recording of the session is emailed to you as the perfect revision aid.
Tutor Doctor Berkshire is a local company dedicated to supporting the community. Our reputation has been built on matching our families with the best local tutors. That means, whether your tutor is visiting your home, or as is currently necessary, is teaching via the Virtual Platform, they will be the best local tutor for the job. All of the tutors we work with have been through our rigorous recruitment process, are DBS checked, have full references and are fully qualified. The suitability of Online tuition can be discussed with our team or at a Free Consultation. At this time Consultations can also take place through the same online technology that will provide your lesson.
Socially Distanced In-Home Tuition
Some families are now asking us if it is possible to return to In Home tuition. Our advice is that all tuition should remain online at the current time, as this is the best way to guarantee the safety of both tutors and students.
However, we are looking at every case individually and are working closely with families to ensure, now more than ever, that all students continue to receive the dedicated and expert support that our tutors can provide.
We can discuss the option of Socially Distanced In-Home tuition and, if this is considered necessary to ensure the best results for the student, we have established strict protocols for all parties to observe for everyone’s safety.
PROTOCOLS FOR IN HOME TUITION
- Both tutor and family must agree that tuition can take place in the home.
- Any current government instructions regarding Covid-19 are being followed.
- Any considerations regarding either the tutor or family shielding other people have been discussed.
The following questions have been answered prior to each lesson:
- Has anyone in the tutors or students households displayed Covid-19 symptoms within the last 14 days?
- Has anyone in the tutors or students households associated with anyone who has had Covid-19 symptoms or with anyone who has come from abroad within the last 14 days?
- Has anyone in the tutors or students households had a temperature, persistent cough or any other Covid-19 related symptoms within the last 14 days?
If Socially Distanced In-Home lessons are agreed, ensure all family members and the tutor take the following precautions:
- Observe current social distancing rules remaining no less than 2 metres apart.
- Ensure the work area has been thoroughly cleaned.
- Wash/sanitise hands before and after the lesson.
- Do not share resources.
- Do not sit face to face.
- Hold the session in a well-ventilated area.
- Masks and gloves can be worn at the discretion of all parties.
Special Educational Needs Tutoring
Students with Special Educational Needs can find the classroom a challenging and confusing environment. Every child must be given the opportunity to fulfil their potential and we apply this core belief with every one of our students.
When working with students with Special Educational Needs we ensure we assign a tutor with the skills, personal qualities and passion to identify the students learning style and academic needs and they will personalise the lessons for the individual. We often find that a tailored approach in a one-to-one environment helps the student to progress.
A student’s needs will vary depending on the degree to which their learning is impacted. At Tutor Doctor we teach the individual rather than the condition.
We have experience of working with children with Dyslexia, Autism, ADD and ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, Non-Verbal Learning Disabilities, Auditory and Visual Processing Disorders and other challenges.
"Just to offer some positive feedback on Yvonne - she's been lovely to work with, always bringing a smile and fun to her sessions. He engaged really well with her and she's been very patient when he has struggled. We've been really impressed!"

"Our son had some last minute English tutoring from Diane over the Christmas holidays in preparation for school entrance exams. We wanted to let you know that he was accepted into all 3 schools we applied for! We are so proud of him and very thankful of your services. Our daughter will be going through the same process in a couple of years so I’ve no doubt we will be back in touch. Please could you forward this to Diane."
