The Good Schools Guide review of Carfax Private Tutors
As principal of both Carfax Private Tutors and Carfax College, Oxford (from which the tutor company ‘borrows’ some of its tutors), Carl Morris (30s) oversees everything to do with both client relationships and the recruiting, matching and training of tutors. Marketing, promotion and business development also fall under his remit. His serious and unflappable temperament certainly fits the bill, as do his academic credentials – Carl graduated from Oxford with a master’s in chemistry, latterly becoming an ACA qualified chartered accountant. He has worked in education for most of his professional life and still tutors in science and maths, having supported pupils across all the major curricula as well as organisations that provide tuition to underprivileged children. Hailing originally from north west England, he’s grounded and plain spoken, with perhaps a little less of the alpha persona we sometimes see at the helm of tutor agencies. Based in the college in Oxford, Carl regularly visits (pandemic permitting) their international locations.
The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants offer assessments in English, maths and in reasoning. Most schools assess these subjects when considering a child for a place. This is especially important for children coming from different countries with different educational systems. But there can be many reasons for checking a child's progress in these basic skills.
