The Good Schools Guide review of Fleet Tutors
Owner and MD Mylène Curtis bought Fleet in 2003. Glamorous, go-getting and half-American, she has so successfully injected the company, founded in 1977, with energy and ambition that it has become the only national agency of its scale in the UK. Mylène’s entrepreneurial background, passion for education and experiences as a mother of children with dyslexia, make her a very safe pair of hands for this ever-growing empire, which is as much about providing tutoring to children in the care system as private clients. She regularly appears in the media as a spokesperson for this huge industry and was a founder of the Tutors’ Association.
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: ‘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 snapshot: "Founded in 2006 by Kate Shand who is committed, passionate, energetic and hugely likeable. Clearly on a mission to deliver a top quality service to her clients – and her tutors – Kate is eloquent on the personal nature of the tutor-client-agency relationship and has a positively moral take on what she sees as her job." read more
