The Good Schools Guide review of James Layland Tutors

This is a real family firm: James Layland runs it; his sister Wendy is his PA; when we visited, his mum (also visiting) let us in and made us a cup of tea. Included on the staff are his two luscious, cream, long-haired Burmese cats, who sprawl nonchalantly across much of the table in the conservatory where most of the teaching takes place, and help to break the ice with reluctant or nervous tutees.
