The Good Schools Guide review of Minerva Tutors

‘I was a musician who wasn’t earning enough from it, so I turned to tutoring on the side – which ironically is exactly the kind of tutor I don’t employ,’ laughs Hugh Viney (Stowe educated; classics degree from UCL). Founded in 2014, Minerva aimed to offer families a more professional tutoring experience in what Hugh describes as a ‘wild-west landscape, full of part-time tutors who really want to be actors and musicians, turning up with common entrance papers in their back pockets, with no training or experience and a lack of technology to support the education process.’

    Review snapshot: "Founded in 2006 by Kate Shand who is committed, passionate, energetic and hugely likeable.

  • Capital Tuition overview

    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.
