The Good Schools Guide review of Select Tutors

Eddie Banner (BSc C.Phys M.InstP) runs Select Tutors as a one-man-band (though his wife occasionally answers the phone) from his semi in a leafy suburb of South West Manchester.  A Birmingham Uni physics graduate and Institute of Physics member for over 40 years, his career included teaching, 23 years in industry, then teaching and tutoring again before setting up Select Tutors in 1994. Some of his first tutors are still with him. He admits that the business keeps him busy and supplements his pension, but it’s clear that much of the job satisfaction comes from helping families and from enjoying the IT: he wrote the database software himself and relishes the competition of on-line marketing.
