The Good Schools Guide review of Watling Tutors

Founded in 2010 by laidback yet super-efficient Leah Warren BA (English, University of Leeds) PGCE (Secondary English, UCL Institute of Education), who has 18 years’ teaching and tutoring experience and still gets stuck in (‘the best tutor ever,’ say clients). Later joined by a part-timer who covers client and tutor liaison, while freelancers are pulled in for eg social media, marketing, tutor recruitment and finance and accounting.

Majority are…
