The Good Schools Guide review of Pegasus Tutors
Head honcho is Alex Sever, who is chief cook and bottle washer, having grown the business organically since he founded it in 2016. There were two of them originally, but Alex’s business partner Katie moved onto pastures new in 2018, when Alex rebranded it, including a change of name from Humanitas Education – ‘it sounded worryingly like Dignitas,’ he says.
Alex, who has Hollywood looks and style but is as grounded and friendly as they come, has an educational CV to die for. He got a scholarship to Eton, having already been head boy at Caldicott in Berkshire. Then it was - you guessed it - Oxford, where he studied PPP at New College (and represented the university in rugby, as well as being a talented musician) before starting teaching in prep schools in 2009.
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
