The Good Schools Guide review of Titanium Tutors
Owner and sole director Joe Hytner (30s) set up Titanium in 2011 after tutoring extensively himself following his PGCE. Young and dynamic, but with a sense of authenticity and integrity that can be a rar-ish commodity in this saturated market, he is widely praised by tutors and clients alike for being ‘reliable,’ ‘caring,’ ‘conscientious,’ ‘going the extra mile’ and even ‘perfect.’ ‘Joe approaches teaching and running his company with energy, thought and professionalism. ‘The way he engages with children is outstanding. He just needs to clone himself,’ is the kind of remark we heard repeatedly. Both his BA in Classics and PGCE are from Cambridge, where he later taught ancient languages to undergraduates for five years, and he’s also taught Latin part time in three different schools.
Splits his time between working from home in Cambridge and the company’s small office in a trendy Camden business hub. Also based here are full-time company managers Madeleine Todd and Adeline Arniac, supported by a team of admin assistants. All are tutors, says Joe, ‘because we want people who really understand tutoring inside out.’ Then there’s a team of four website developers in India working on Titanium’s technology.
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+.

As proud parents, we all know our children are unique. They're smarter than anyone else's, funnier, certainly more attractive, better behaved and above all bursting with the kind of talent that would leave Daniel Radcliffe or Charlotte Church standing. And sometimes, just sometimes, parental pride is justified.
There are currently around 163 state funded grammar schools located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. There are a further 69 grammar schools in Northern Ireland, but none in Wales or Scotland. Almost half of these are in what are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston, with only a few grammar schools.
