The Good Schools Guide review of Newman Tuition
Founded in 2014, this company prefers to call itself a ‘network’ than an ‘agency’ – ‘It sounds warmer and more personal, which is how we believe we stand out,’ explains founder Zac Newman BA PGCE (History from Nottingham), who runs it singlehandedly (with cover when he’s off). Clients agree – ‘Zac is so approachable and has always been happy to have lengthy chats with me, if that’s what it takes to get me the tutor we need.’ ‘Zac is enthusiastic, kind and helpful.’ ‘This is a tutoring company that provides a friendly and efficient service.’ ‘Efficient, forthcoming, reliable. Will bend over backwards to help.’ Etc. Similarly, tutors report: ‘It’s a lovely friendly company to work for.’ ‘Zac Newman is a personable, efficient and professional young man – he takes what he does very seriously and displays integrity.’ ‘Zac always responds quickly and positively.’

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: Tutors were consistently rated good or very good; a rating of average was as low as it got and even here numbers were relatively small. While there’s not much by way of formal training for tutors, resources are in ample supply – Lynne is on the must-invite list of every major examining board’s…
Areas covered: North west London locals make up the vast majority of the clientele - mostly in N14, N12, N3, N2, NW3, NW4, NW11, NW2, NW9, NW7 and HA8. Online tutoring has widened the company’s reach to include Cardiff, Nottingham, Potters Bar and even Cyprus…
Review snapshot: ‘It’s on the more expensive side, particularly for more experienced tutors, but it’s absolutely my favourite. They’re honest, on the ball and have the best quality tutors,’ concluded another parent. read more
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."
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.
