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.


 

Most popular Good Schools Guide articles


  • Tutor agencies - section A

    Review snapshot: This section covers tutor agencies that actually know their tutors personally, ie they interview them and keep in close touch. Most do this in person, although some by Skype. We have visited and had extensive consultation with all the agencies in Section A.

  • Dulwich Tutors overview

    Review snapshot: ‘DT saved my life!’ gushed one parent. ‘I’m a busy, pressurised, single working parent and our tutors stayed with us for long periods of time providing crucial support and advice to both my children, which went well beyond academic tuition.’

  • Keystone Tutors overview

    Review snapshot: This is the BMW of tutor agencies – wow-factor quality, innovative, always evolving, an authority in the industry. It doesn’t pretend or want to be Ferrari – rich jet-setters and Russian oligarchs aren’t their target market.

  • The Golden Circle overview

    Review snapshot: Tutors told us it feels like ‘the elite end of tutoring’ but ‘without being stuffy’. ‘Although a relatively new company, Golden Circle offers world-class education’, said one.

  • Secondary school: understanding the 11+

    The 11+ is the entrance exam procedure for getting your brightish little button into a fee-paying or state grammar school. Much of the country abolished the 11+ several decades ago for state schools, but a few local authorities, such as Bucks and Kent, retained a large number of grammar schools and run county-wide entrance tests. 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.
