The Good Schools Guide review of Newman Tuition
A relatively new kid on the block, 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 started the business in December 2014 and continues to run 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: ‘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: ‘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." read more
