The Good Schools Guide review of Kings Tutors
Instantly likeable and ultra-efficient director Emily Jack (BA in classics and English from the University of Newcastle) founded the company in 2012 after tutoring for five years alongside her degree and a brief stint working in financial services. ‘I wanted to set up my own company and I loved the way good tutoring can bring out a child’s full potential,’ says Emily, who is also a qualified primary school teacher. Now joined by a tutor manager and two (soon to be three) client managers (Cambridge and Newcastle graduates), they are based in offices in Parsons Green.

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."
