The Good Schools Guide review of Power Tutors
Nazanin (Naz) Nankali’s plan A was to work in finance. But having landed a sought-after graduate role at Bloomberg, where her goal was to become a trader, she wound up feeling pretty flat about the whole thing. ‘It just lacked the value and impact that I felt when I was tutoring during my degree,’ she explains (mathematical science from City). So Naz (20s) quit her job and took on more tutoring, at first part-time alongside other things, then full-time. When the tutoring turned to seven-day weeks and she still couldn’t fulfil all her requests, she thought, ‘OK, it’s time to set up an agency.’

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.

Perhaps you suspect your child has some learning difficulty and you would like advice on what you should do. Or perhaps it is becoming clear that your child's current school is not working for him or her, and you need help to find a mainstream school which has better SEN provision, or to find a special school which will best cater for your child's area of need. Our SEN consultancy team advises on both special schools, and the mainstream schools with good SEN support, from reception through to the specialist colleges for 19+.

We examined the value-added from KS2 to GCSE for 2017 to see which state selective grammar schools added the most value to their offspring. A note of caution - the more highly selective a grammar school, the less scope there will be to add value. Read more
At specialist music, dance or performing arts schools, the arts aren't optional extras. They’re intrinsic to the school curriculum. Students are expected to fit in high level training and hours of practice alongside a full academic provision.
It's a lot to ask any child to take on, but for those with exceptional performing ability this kind of education can be transformative.
