We have met with Enjoy Education’s staff. In addition, 68 clients and 55 tutors have completed an on-line survey (sent to 381 clients and 290 tutors) and we have followed this up with additional short phone interviews with some of those surveyed.
The Good Schools Guide review of Enjoy Education
Founded in 2006 by Kate Shand (late 30s). Glamorous, dynamic, chirpy. Chatty too – while tutor agency owners are a famously talkative bunch, we defy any to beat Kate on words per minute. Fizzing with zeal and zest and determinedly upbeat, she looks for the same in her tutors. So, if it’s excitement, fun and a real buzz about learning that you want out of your tutoring (and who doesn’t?) then Enjoy Education is definitely worth a shot. Mission statement of the company has always been ‘to create happy, confident learners.’

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.

Review snapshot: This is the Innocent Drinks (as in smoothies) of the tutor world – run by bright young things that have come in and shaken up all the industry norms, resulting in a friendly, energetic, highly branded, internet-savvy company with a clear edge.
Review snapshot: We’ve been very pleased,’ says a parent. ‘My child needed very specific help, Lynne had the right person, put us together and it made a big difference.’
Review snapshot: ‘It’s on the more expensive side, particularly for more experienced tutors, but it’s absolutely my favourite. They’re honest, on the ball and have the best quality tutors,’ concluded another parent. read more
Review snapshot: ‘We have families that stay with us throughout their children’s upbringing – then we look after their own children. This really does happen, with generations of the same family having worked with us.’ ‘Having a small register, we know our tutors personally. Some have been with us for many years which helps greatly in matching clients and tutors appropriately.’
Review snapsot: Most tutoring is by trained teachers for GCSEs and A levels, with a little (but growing) amount at university level (‘but we hold our hands up if we can’t help, for instance we recently had to turn down a tutoring request from a property development student,’ says Matthew). Specialist subjects currently span biology, chemistry, physics, maths, further maths, English language, English lit, geography, history, RE, philosophy and ethics, psychology, French, Spanish, German, Latin, Ancient Greek, PE, business studies and economics. Small amount of 11+ and 13+ also on offer from non-teacher trained tutors.
