Trusted English Tutoring in Cambridge

English is a core subject in the UK curriculum. Some main topics of English are compulsory at the GCSE level. Some universities and courses also require good grades in English to pursue. That’s why students should take the subject seriously early in school for the best results. At Spark Tutoring, we make it our v=business to help students get the best grades in English regardless of their struggles. We have a team of qualified English tutors in Cambridge ready to work with the students and help them turn their grades around.

But after 15 years of experience, we know there’s more to a good student than how they perform in class. It’s not just about the student for us but also the individual. We want to have a massive impact on every aspect of the student, to develop students that do well in and out of class.

We have tutors that make great role models for the students they work with. The tutors do everything to help improve the student’s confidence and self-esteem. The tutors also equip the student with tips and habits to help them succeed in life and become better people and citizens.

  • My son has loved working with his tutors from Spark. They are friendly, consistent and great role-models for my boy. He has improved at school, but the biggest change has been his attitude – he is more driven and focussed on his goals. Highly recommend!

    JAMIE, LONDON
  • My daughter worked with Sarah from Spark Tutoring through her GCSE and A-levels. She would not have achieved the results she did without them. They built a real friendship, and Sarah become a role model through those challenging years. Thank you Spark!

    THOMAS, WOKING
  • My 12 year old daughter worked with an online tutor from Spark Tutoring and it was amazing. I was reluctant at first, knowing how restless my girl can be, but her tutor was engaging and energetic – making the lessons fun. It also made things much easier for my wife and I, having someone else involved to ensure she was meeting all her remote-schooling requirements.

    MICHAEL, BRISTOL
  • Every interaction with Spark was worthy of 5-stars. From the easy booking process to the simplicity of weekly lessons and automated payments, working with them made my life easy and my child happy! What more could a parent ask for?

What Makes Us the Best for English Tutoring in Cambridge?

We take pride in hiring local English tutors born and raised in Cambridge. We value your privacy and comfort, so we only hire tutors that are local to the area.

By hiring English tutors in Cambridge, scheduling in-home tutoring becomes easier because the tutor knows their way around and can make it to your residence in a short while.

We also hire local tutors because it is easier to confirm their references. The tutors are well known in the Cambridge area, which makes running background checks and verifying references easier, so we only hire tutors who are reputable and have a stellar record.

English tutoring can be challenging to many families. It challenges their routine and, in most cases, can affect their schedule. At Spark Tutoring, we offer a different tutoring experience that is convenient and flexible. You don’t need to worry about missing important meetings or pulling your child from the activities they love. With us, the parent decides when they want the child to take their lessons. This ensures we schedule the lessons around your needs saving you the last-minute rush to get the child to your next class. For our in-home tutoring, the tutor comes to you. The tutor can also meet the student at the local library if there are too many distractions at home. By coming to you, you save time in traffic.

We have online tutoring for the busiest families with a tight schedule. Our robust online tutoring platform gives the student access to the tutor at any time. The platform has numerous features that make the lesson interactive and engaging, almost like face-to-face tutoring. Regardless of the type of tutoring you prefer for your child, you’re always assured of customised, individualised tutoring for your child at a convenient time and place for you, as long as it is conducive to learning.

The perfect English Tutors in Cambridge for your children

Quality tutors are an essential part of our success. We hand-select all our tutors based on their academic performance, history, personality and communication effectiveness.

We do our best to identify the best English tutors in Cambridge to work with our students and transform them. We get tutors from various occupational backgrounds. They include active and retired lecturers and English tutors and also high=performing English students in leading universities.

Before the selected tutors can join our team, they have to complete a triple-step security check, including face-to-face interviews, double reference checks, and manual background checks. We only hire the most qualified and trustworthy tutors to add to our pool.

Qualified tutors receive training and accreditation to ensure they can deliver to our high standards. We also provide them with an expansive resource centre where they can get all the material they need to provide the best support to the students.

The beauty of working with Spark Tutoring is how easy we make tutoring. Getting started on our platform takes less than three minutes. You fill out a quick online booking form, or you can schedule a call with one of our education experts. Once you provide us with the student’s details, we will match you with the perfect English tutor in Cambridge for your child within 48 hours. You don’t have to worry about scrolling through tutor profiles to find the best one for your child. Once we set up the first lesson, we will conduct an assessment against the national standards, which will give us a clearer picture of the areas we need to work on, and we will start developing a customised learning plan for the student.

We select tutors that we believe will have the greatest impact on the students they work with and help them achieve their maximum potential.

Everything about Spark Tutoring is simplified. Even our payment methods are simplified. Our tutoring rates are by the hour, depending on the type of tutoring you select. The rates are transparent without any hidden charges or penalties.

We charge your credit card 24 hours after your lesson with our pay-as-you-go payment system. We only charge you for the lessons you take. You’re not tied down to a contract, minimum payment, or prepayment. You can terminate the tutoring service at no additional cost or penalty.

We make it easy for parents to stay updated on how their children are doing academically, even when busy. The tutor sends you an email at the end of every lesson. The email details what was covered and how the student responded.

We also send you another more detailed report after every 10 lessons. This gives you a detailed report of how the student is doing and the areas we intend to work on in the coming lessons.

Don’t take any chances with your academic future. Work with the best and most reputable tutors with a proven track record of delivering exceptional results with our customised approach to learning.

Frequently Asked Questions:


When is a good time to start tutoring?

There is no better time than now! Remember, tutoring is not just for students who are struggling – it is for all students! Even the brightest of students will be driven to achieve their full potential with the support of a Spark Tutor.

We have students of all ages working with our tutors; from early Primary school to A-levels. The best time to start working with a Spark Tutor is todayso book your first lesson in under 3 minutes here.


Does my child really need a tutor?

Every student will benefit from the support of a Spark Tutor, because we offer so much more than just academic support.

Our tutors have been selected for their ability to motivate and inspire the young people they work with. Your child will grow in confidence, do better at school and gain a life-long love of learning.

A Spark Tutor offers more than just help for those struggling at school – they are mentors that will help your child realise their potential.


Does your tutoring follow a set program? What is the lesson structure?

Every lesson we do is tailored around the unique needs of the student. There are no pre-set programs or courses we follow – it is personalised one-on-one learning, targeting exactly what your child needs every week.

Your tutor will have full access to our resource centre – which is packed with thousands of worksheets, textbooks and learning programs. They will use these as they see the need arise in your child.


What ages do you support?

We work with all Primary and Secondary School age students from Reception (Ages 4-5) to A-Levels (Year 13/Ages 17-18).

How do I get started?

Getting started is easy. Book online in under 3 minutes or speak with one of our team members and we will get it all organised from there. We work with our tutors to match your child up with the perfect tutor for them and send you all the details for the first lesson. No payment details are required upfront – we will check in with you after the first session to see how it went and you can submit payment info then!

Are your tutors qualified?

All our tutors go through our unique training and accreditation process and have passed all required reference and child safety checks (DBS) to work with us.

We do not require our tutors to be degree qualified to work with us, and in most cases are younger, University age tutors that excelled in school themselves. We actually find students respond best to this age group of tutors; they can build real authentic relationships and the school curriculum is fresh in the tutor’s mind, creating a mentor-mentee relationship rather than one of authority from a teacher.


How do I track my child’s progress?

You will receive feedback by email after every lesson letting you know what was covered and how your child engaged with the content.

Every ten lessons your tutor will also provide you with a detailed progress report, providing an insight into their development, where they are still struggling and what they are working towards over the next ten lessons. This progress report can also be shared with their classroom teacher or any other family members.


Do you offer any discounts?

We provide a 5% discount for any family that does 2 or more hours of lessons per week. This can be with siblings, multiple subjects or multiple lessons.


How do we find the right tutor?

Getting the match right between student and tutor is so important. When you book, we ask you a number of questions about your child to get a better understanding of both their academic needs and personality. We then match these with one of our tutors that we believe will be a great fit for them.

Obviously, the best test of any tutor is meeting them face to face, which is why your first lesson is covered by our 100% happiness guarantee – so if you don’t think the tutor we have selected for you is the right one for your child, there is no charge and we will work with you closely to find a tutor better suited to them.


Where does the tutoring take place?

Our lessons happen in your home or online in our online classroom, allowing your child to connect with their tutor face-to-face from any device at any time.

How do I pay?

We have the world’s easiest payment system. You simply submit your debit or credit card information once after the first lesson and you are charged 24 hours after each lesson occurs.

We’ll send you a notification shortly after each lesson with the scheduled charge and a receipt 24 hours later after the payment has been processed.

There are no contracts, prepayments or minimum commitments in partnering with us.


Do I have to have lessons every week?

Growth is all about consistency, so we encourage weekly lessons for best results.

However, this is not a requirement in partnering with us. If you need to miss a lesson every now and then, no problem – just let your tutor know at least 24 hours before a scheduled lesson and there will be no charge.


How long do the lessons go for?

Most lessons go for an hour, with many families opting for 90-minute lessons. Ultimately the length of the lesson is up to you – just chat with your tutor and let them know how long you would like to work together.

When can I start?

It usually takes us 2 to 3 business days to get everything lined up, so a good rule of thumb is to book now to get started next week.

We will keep you updated on any potential delays, and of course let you know by SMS and email once we have scheduled the first lesson.


How much does it cost?


Do you offer a free trial or lesson?

Your first lesson is covered by our 100% happiness guarantee – so if you aren’t happy with the tutor we match with your child then there is no charge for the lesson.

This allows you to meet your tutor completely risk-free, but it also means that your tutor gets rewarded for their hard work when they do a great job. It is win-win for all!
