What the school says...
Established in 1934, Westminster Tutors is celebrating 80 years of providing top-flight tuition, and is one of the oldest tutorial colleges in the country. Our tutors are our greatest asset and their qualifications and experience are second to none.
What sets us apart from other tutorial colleges is that we remain true to our origins and every student's programme of study is individually designed. Classes are either one-to-one or in very small groups. We offer GCSE, IGCSE, A level and Pre U courses, as well as private tuition and revision for a very wide range of subjects, from Common Entrance to university level.
Nearly all of our students go on to higher education, and we maintain our long-standing reputation for preparing students for Oxbridge and Cambridge entrance, including specialist tuition for all university admissions tests and interview preparation. ...Read more

Around a third of students have special needs of one sort or another, mostly dyslexia. The one-to-one system copes admirably with, for example, the very bright girl with Asperger's who likes being immersed in two-hour-long lessons, and...

Special Education Needs
Although we do not have any specific SEN provision, we have a long history of being able to help students who need extra attention. Groups are small, and one to-one-tuition is always available; this policy, and the dedication and experience of our tutors, enables us to help many students. We have been able to accommodate students who are partially deaf, dyslexic, dyspraxic, or who have ADHD, and students who, for various reasons, have not been able to cope with mainstream school.
