Why Private Tuition?

Private tuition on a one-to-one basis is clearly the most productive way to learn. Private tuition from Drake Tutors can be used help your child catch up after temporarily falling behind, to learn a subject outside the school environment, to stretch your child further or give closer attention to the needs of your child than is possible in a classroom environment.
