Online Tutoring

For Students

Start by searching our highly qualified and experienced tutors (non-registered students only have access to a limited selection of our tutors). Once you've chosen a tutor, send them a message to request a lesson or, where offered, a free trial lesson. When it's time to start the lesson, simply login and enter the Tutor Room. There's nothing to install or setup, all you need is a computer with a webcam. After the initial lesson/free trial, lessons work on a flexible pay as you go basis with no commitment. For safeguarding, all our tutors are ID checked and all lessons are recorded. Learn with the best tutors in the UK from the safety and comfort of your home.

More Info

All lessons are one-to-one and occur online in our specialist Tutor Rooms. Live video chat allows tutors and students to talk freely and interactive whiteboards allow co-viewing and co-editing of resources (e.g. diagrams, notes and questions). Share files with a single click and work through questions together, live on screen. Tutor Rooms setup automatically with a single click and run in your internet browser so there’s nothing to install. All you need is a laptop or desktop computer with a webcam and a good internet connection.

Free Trials

Most tutors choose to offer a free trial lesson for new students. This allows the opportunity for tutors, students and parents to meet in the online Tutor Room to discuss tutoring requirements, ask questions and experience an online lesson. To request a free trial, simply send your chosen tutor a message.  Most trial lessons are about 15-20 minutes.


The cost of a paid lesson depends on the tutors hourly rate (shown on their profile) and how long the lesson lasts. Students add credit to their account before the lesson using a debit or credit card and after the lesson the correct amount of credit is automatically transferred to the tutor. Students can top up credit anytime on a pay as you go basis.
