The Good Schools Guide review of Kensington & Chelsea Tutors
Founded in 2002 by the easy-going and affable Nevil Chiles (a Kings College, London grad), after he’d done a stint of tutoring overseas, followed by teaching at an independent school. He shares the day-to-day running of the company with Paul Caffell (MA Philosophy from University of Aberdeen/MSc Theoretical Psychoanalytic Studies from UCL) – both liase with clients and students and carry out tutor interviews.

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: ‘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."
