  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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?


The easiest booking process around

Here’s how it works:

Book a tutor

You book.

Book online in under 3 minutes or schedule a call with one of our education specialists.

Find a tutor

We match.

We work with our team to match the perfect tutor to your child’s needs.

Meet a tutor

The magic happens.

We schedule in the first lesson and send you all the details you’ll need by SMS and email.

In the first lesson, your tutor will do an assessment on your child to see how they are doing against the standards of the national curriculum, and build a learning plan to work towards moving forwards. They will send you a copy of the assessment outcomes by email and share some goals that they will be working towards with your child.

We encourage weekly lessons for the best results – but ultimately the length, timing and frequency is up to you.

You are free to communicate openly and directly with your tutor about scheduling and timings. All payments will be through Spark Tutoring – details will be provided after the first lesson and only if you are happy to continue.

After every lesson you will receive feedback from your tutor by email, outlining what was covered and how your child responded in the lesson. Every 10 lessons your tutor will provide a detailed progress report, keeping you in the loop at all times!

The perfect Tutors in Barnsley for your children

Why Spark Tutoring Barnsley?

The main mission at Spark Tutoring is to offer your child an educational platform like no other. Here, your child’s skills and prowess in Maths and English will be tested and sharpened appropriately.

Read on for reasons why Spark Tutoring stands out as the best centre for your child’s success in education.

Extra Help to Overcome School Challenges

A common problem that affects over 75% of students’ overall performance in the UK is an incomplete understanding of the basic principles. So, at Spark Tutoring, every student is entitled to a personalised approach where the tutor is able to pinpoint specific struggles and challenges.

Find more about personalisation approach below.

We learnt that the social pressure around your kids, whether in school or at home, can influence and determine the nature of their self-esteem. So, our tutoring sections are creatively designed so your child can trust their tutors to help without judging their abilities.

Several other school challenges addressed in our tutoring sessions include language barriers, test and exam anxiety, and difficulty completing assignments, all addressed in later sections below.

Guaranteed Parental Peace of Mind

All students in our Barnsley tutoring program are handled like our biological children, irrespective of their backgrounds. As a parent, this is what you need to be sure that your son or daughter not only succeeds but also grows with the right morals.

To us at Spark Tutoring, the ability to teach and manage students is more of a calling than a profession. We will, therefore, assign your child the best tutors well-trained for the kid’s level of need. Moreover, we highly regard your feedback as a guardian, so if you need a change of tutor for your kid, you always have our support.

Improved Grades

We understand it is your desire to see your kid doing well in their studies, which is why we ensure every step and approach taken by the tutor aligns with the core mission of building the student’s academic knowledge.

Over the years of service, we have learned how to bring up sharp students by balancing their class hours with their extracurricular needs.

This is the reason behind the multiple positive reviews from parents like you, whose children’s success is our top priority.

Balanced Extracurriculars

Despite the importance of academic success, your child’s future may be more inclined toward other priorities. So we ensure when assessing every learner’s capabilities, we note their life interests and build on them while sharpening their academic minds.

So, with balanced extracurriculars, your child can effortlessly manage their school interests and life passions without feeling overwhelmed or undecided.

Our Tutoring Approach

At Spark Tutoring, our dedication is to offering your child immeasurable educational help in preparation for their future endeavours.

Here are the main services you can get when signing up for our tutoring program.

Physical Sessions

In these sessions, each tutor is assigned to a single student, and the tutor is expected to understand the students, individual needs and the best approach to address them. We’d confidently advise you to pick up on this approach, especially if you have no constraining issues that may affect the student’s physical availability.

With this approach also comes the home-based or centre-based classes. Our tutors understand their way around Barnsley, so we can arrange for in-home sessions. We’ve, however, had cases where parents feel the students will be more inclined to study in different settings from the usual home environment. In such a case, we have physical learning centres in Barnsley where every student gets allocated their personal tutor.

Our tutors at Spark Tutoring are well-disciplined persons whose security backgrounds have been well-scrutinised. So you don’t have to worry about your child’s safety at home or in our tutoring centres.

Group Sessions

Depending on the needs and abilities of your child, we may suggest having a small group of not more than five learners to boost the students’  learning. However, this is only settled upon your request or if your child’s tutor feels the student will benefit more from a group setup.

Even then, before partnering your child with any other learners, we take time to study them and only partner learners who won’t have negative influences on each other.

Online Session

With this approach, your kid gets tutored online by a specialised tutor who understands how best to engage the child despite the physical distance. This may be your go-to approach if you have multiple commitments that may affect the student’s availability in person.

Moreover, the online sessions are quite beneficial since we record each session, making it even easier for the student to watch them for a recap of any aspects they may desire help for.

Our Services

At Spark Tutoring, we recognise the importance of every subject in the UK’s school curriculum; however, we discovered that Maths and English form the major foundation for every other subject. This is why we offer English and Maths tutoring subjects to all students from elementary to secondary school.

So if your kid can read, understand, reason Mathematically, and solve any problems in their paths, they are good to pass in any other subject.

Book your child’s Maths and English tutoring sessions today to help make their future better. We also offer super flexible payment options with no hooking contracts. All you need to do is book and sign up with us. The not-more than 3-minute sign-up process ensures we have every necessary detail to help allocate the most appropriate tutor to your kid.

We’ll then evaluate the student and communicate our findings to you, then set up the first class, which you only pay for after the session is ended. Make your kid’s future bright by enrolling them today on our service for the best private tutor.

We offer Tutoring in Exeter, Chichester, Chester, Barnsley, Lincoln, Canterbury, Durham, and across the UK!

Whatever level of your child is working on, we have the perfect Tutor for them near you!

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!
