One to One Tuition
Let’s be honest, the pandemic hit our children hard. It’s normal for children to have gaps in their learning and it’s normal for children to lose confidence when that happens.
We’d like to give their confidence back.
At Next Steps Tutors we work specifically to your child’s needs and aims. Our tuition is:
- personalised, planned for just them
- delivered by an expert tutor
- designed to build confidence
Our tutors are all qualified teachers AND qualified tutors. We’re trained not just in the UK curriculum but in building confidence and developing aspiration. Our aim is your aim: to unlock your child’s true potential.
We’d love to hear how you think we can support your child.

Is this right for my child?
We classed this pathway as ‘Intensive’.
This means that it is suitable for any child from Year 3 to Year 6 who has a particular objective to move their learning forward.
After a careful diagnostic exploration of your child’s needs, our one to one tutor will cover relevant objectives from the Year 5 and Year 6 UK primary school curriculums.
Our children on this pathway tend to be working at all national average levels. We feel that it is most suited to those children who want to make rapid progress in their learning.

Intensive Support Application Process
The last few years of education have been a momentous journey, yet here you are, still learning and still wanting to learn. You have been exceptional. There is no other generation that has had this level of disruption to their education.
But of course, inconsistency means that just about every child in similar sized shoes has gaps in their learning and that’s where Next Steps Tutors can step in and help.
Our application process is nothing scary. We like to get to know a little about you and your family & school situation in an informal Zoom call. Knowing your aspirations, difficulties and interests can help us find exactly the right level of work for you and match you with the right tutor.
The interview is around 30-45 minutes. There’s no need to prepare in advance: we would like to meet you as you are everyday. That way we know we’ll place you in the ideal group to make optimal progress.
We’re committed to keeping your child safe online.

Getting Started With One to One Tuition
If you don’t see the answer to our Frequently Asked Questions please ask!
Straight after you sign up with us, we will send you an email with the links you need to access our knowledge organiser packs, printable resources, links to our games and curriculum guides including a pre-curriculum booklet (for group tuition). We will also invite you to a dedicated Google Classroom where you’ll be able to access replay videos of your lessons and optional homework tasks and challenges.
Children can learn online from a tablet, laptop or desktop. We don’t recommend learning from a phone due to image size. The only software that your child will need to access is Zoom. If you are not familiar with Zoom we are happy to offer a complimentary 30 minute session to familiarise your child with the controls before your course starts. See our blog on tech for online learning to find the best resources for your budget.
All children learn at their own pace. Some will settle quickly and enthusiastically into their new style of learning whilst others might take some more time.
There really is no one-size-fits-all approach. If you are concerned about your child’s progress, your tutor is on hand to discuss their learning.
Whether you choose group or one to one tuition, your child will be allocated their own slot within the week. As a result, we ask that missed lessons are paid for. However, our group tuition recording will be available in their classroom. We will always do our best to find a suitable time for a catch-up session where possible.
Next Steps Tutors charges £40 per 50 minute lesson, which includes a private Google classroom with lesson replay option and suitable homework tasks.
We ask for payments in 1 month installments, which will be invoiced to you in advance of the lesson block and should be paid at least 48 hours before your tuition session.
We are happy to make arrangements around family holidays when planned at least one month in advance.
We offer a no-quibbles cancelation within 14 days of payment, after which we ask for one month’s notice should you wish to cancel.
Learning in a group helps to develop confidence and deepens understanding
Resilient children keep going when they hit a problem. They know to look for alternative solutions.
Children who find a purpose in their learning work towards an outcome and pace their learning.
