About our tutors

Highly Qualified Tutors

Drake Tutors only use highly qualified tutors. All our tutors are required to have a teaching certificate or have teaching experience in a recognised College or University. Over the years Drake Tutors has built a team of trustworthy and successful local private tutors selected for their suitability for each pupil’s needs in order to instil confidence and realise potential.

Protection of children is a prime concern. All our tutors have to satisfy strict personal checks. These include reference/character checks along with a current disclosure check: the enhanced disclosure (DBS – Disclosure and Barring Service) check for allegations, complaints and any convictions with the Dept of Health, Dept of Education and Local and National Police records.

Parents/student comments

‘The tutors you sent me were great, they were really interested in my daughters education. They gave lots of information and advice and I was very pleased with the help. I will not hesitate to contact you in the future when my other children need help with their education. Thank you so much, and a big thank you to the tutors.’

‘Excellent, reliable, punctual and confidence given to my daughter, fantastic and will recommend.’
“M. Davey” Plymouth

‘The Tutor was brilliant at filling the gaps in our son’s knowledge/understanding. She was also flexible to fit in around his GCSE exam timetable and study leave. Our son made great progress in relatively little time, achieving two A*s at double award science – two whole grades higher than predicted by his school.’
