Private Tutoring

The London Borough of Hounslow does not hold a list of 'approved tutors'. It is your responsibility to check if a tutor and the learning environment is suitable for your child's needs. However, we have listed a few tips on things to think about when choosing a tutor. 

  • Word of mouth recommendations from friends and family are popular but do remember, what suits your friend’s child may not suit yours.
  • Check the suitability of a tutor, do they have an update to date DBS certificate?
  • Where will lessons take place, your house, the tutors house, what room?
  • Can your child meet the tutor before you make a decision? Observing their interaction may help inform your decision
  • Do they have any references from other parents/children?

Where can I find a list of tutors?

The tutors listed below are registered with Ofsted on the Voluntary Register.  This means they may be inspected by Ofsted over a period of time. Being on the voluntary register also allows eligible parents to use Tax-Free Childcare towards the cost of tutoring services if the provider has signed up to the scheme. 

We only list tutors registered with Ofsted in the London Borough of Hounslow. If you need to widen your search or wish to look at more, you can use any search engine such as Google to find a list of tutoring agencies or an individual tutor.
