The Good Schools Guide review of Riviera Tutors

Luke Sullivan, who graduated in English lit from Bristol, is the founder and front-man for clients and tutors, while his brother Oliver – a more recent recruit and Cambridge philosophy graduate – deals with tutor recruitment. Luke has been tutoring since 2007 and still dabbles, although only for select clients. Since there’s no official London office to speak of (meetings all take place in clients’ homes or in restaurants and hotels), he suggested we interview him in a quiet corner in Claridge’s – which gives you a flavour of the kind of clients he deals with.
