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).

  • The Basic Skills Centre overview

    Review snapshot: Founded in 1999 by William Winterford, a gentlemanly but battle-scarred teacher who was becoming less and less enamoured of the way education in the UK was headed. He ran the company until 2013, when he handed it over to Gillian Carberry (60s), a mild mannered woman who hails from the north east, married with three grown-up children.
