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.’
The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants offer assessments in English, maths and in reasoning. Most schools assess these subjects when considering a child for a place. This is especially important for children coming from different countries with different educational systems. But there can be many reasons for checking a child's progress in these basic skills.
