Everything you need to know about choosing a tutor for your child.
The agencies in this section are those which have been recommended to us by approbatory parents, whose tutors are happy, whose credentials and approach we have researched and which appear to us to do a creditable job but which we have not personally visited.
We include website-only tutor agencies as well as those agencies who offer the kind of careful, personal service described above.

Postscript: New Kids on the Block
New agencies are hustling onto the market all the time. They are mostly set up by bright, ambitious and energetic young graduates who use their equally bright friends and friends’ friends as tutors. They are inexhaustible, charming and ever-so-keen and they want a bit of the lucrative central London market. They can’t offer the breadth and depth of experience of the agencies we list above but they will fall over themselves to please you and their tutors will be as bright-eyed and enthusiastic as you could wish. We encourage you to tell us your experiences of working with them.
