The Good Schools Guide review of Capital Tuition Group

Founded in September 2015 by Matthew Curnier BSc MSc PGCE (King’s College, London), a science teacher who taught for five years in the state sector and who has tutored (and still does) for 12 years. Later joined by Rachael Hayden BSc PGCE (Roehampton), a former modern foreign languages teacher and who has tutored for nine years. Matthew does the bulk of tutor and client liaison work; Rachael runs the admin side of things. But both know enough to take over from the other when needed.

In some other areas, such as Barnet and Kingston, a few grammar schools exist in tandem with the comprehensive system found in most of the country. These grammar schools set their own entrance exams.

    Review snapshot: "Back in the early noughties, friends Ekaterina Ametistova and Anna Kunitsyna (who met at Moscow State University, where Ekaterina did an MSc in maths and Anna an MSc in physics) spotted a growing demand for tailored tutoring services among local Russian families. ‘Anna has two children and was increasingly hearing about the shortage of tutors available,’ says Ametistova.
