Trusted Tutoring in Gravesend

Private tutoring stands out for its flexible teaching methods. Instead of showing learners how something works out, tutoring helps them understand why something has to be done in a specific way. This raises their confidence and self-esteem levels, of course, showing them that they, too, can handle any problems.

At Spark Tutoring, our primary focus is not just on academics. We want to build on your child’s interests to shape their future. We also equip our learners with valuable non-academic skills such as critical thinking, resilience and teamwork.

So, enrolling your kid with us means we’ll give you back an educationally-equipped individual who knows their place in the community, no matter their age.

We welcome students from primary to high school for Math and English tutoring. Your child needs not to be struggling to join us! Our doors are open to anyone who wants to improve their grades and develop better study habits. Our services are about helping students succeed, no matter where they start.

  • 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, Gravesend
  • 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?

    TRACEY, BRIGHTON

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 Best Tutoring in Gravesend

We believe learning knows no limits as long as there is interest. So, we offer flexible private tutoring online services for all kids from elementary to high school. While this may deprive the learner of physical interaction with the tutor, it comes with multiple other benefits that you should consider. Firstly, with the online service, you don’t need to worry about your child’s location at any time. So, if you need peace of mind and confidence that your child is always safe, the online service is the best option.

All you need for this setup is a computer with access to the internet in a calm, quiet and less destructive room. We understand most parents worry about their children possibly wandering around the internet when unmonitored. To curb this, we have a clear and straightforward manoeuvre website, which is solely controlled by the tutor.

The perfect Tutors in Gravesend for your children

When planning our tutoring sessions, here is what we base on:

Student Evaluation: We give our first-time learners oral tests, questions, and strategic exams that will expose their academic struggles in the relevant subjects. During the assessment, we give them time to rephrase their answers following the guided instructions. This aims to bring out the student’s strengths and weaknesses for an even better-strategised tutoring approach.

Customised timetable: Based on the evaluation findings, we develop an effective timetable that addresses each topic of interest to the learner. We also share the outcome with parents to ensure they feel comfortable with the length of the tutoring sessions and other aspects of them.

We set goals and include small achievable milestones with little rewards that will push the learners to work smart. Therefore, these motivate your child to work beyond the usual stats with their academic goals in mind.

The timetable also includes life skill issues to discuss during breaks to help refresh the learners’ minds. These also prepare them for real-world life, where communication, adaptability, resilience, and teamwork are essential in the career industry.

Continuous Evaluation: Even after the sessions kick-off, we conduct continuous evaluations to ensure the tutoring aligns with our desired goals. This makes it easy to adjust the tutoring approach where necessary, ensuring it’s very effective and meets the learner’s goals.

Our Services

Comprehensive Tutoring

Our greatest strength is in offering a comprehensive service where your child not only masters the concepts but understands them from their foundation. In whatever subject, the tutors take time to break down concepts. They then research previous related topics to give the learner a well-packaged and easy-to-understand output.

Therefore, the service involves multiple techniques meant to ease the tutoring sessions. These may include hands-on activities and real-world applications intended to elevate the learner’s understanding.

However, since every learner has unique learning styles, our comprehensive services are structured and customised to adapt to every learner’s self-paced learning process.

 Homework Help

When doing their homework, learners often have doubts that can only be cleared by a tutor guiding them on the subject matter. Even though homework originally was meant to strengthen the learner’s understanding of topics taught at school, its common for doubts to pop up.

We offer tutoring in GravesendGosportHorshamMargateRochesterSittingbourne and across the UK!

So, getting your child a tutor to guide you through their homework makes the difference. First, the homework will be completed on time, and then the learner will have their confidence strengthened. This is because the tutor’s input ensures that every concept is broken down fully for easier understanding.

Exam Preparation

Preparing for exams has never been easy. Time management, especially with piles of resources to revise, has always been an impacting factor, leaving most students panicked and with exam stress. Our tutors, however, have the know-how to balance your revision time, ensuring you get the best grades.

With a custom timetable, the tutor will help maximise your child’s study time while teaching them the basics of time management in exams. This will leave the learner confident and ready to sit for the exam, positively influencing their results.

We use practice tests, past papers, and exam simulations to open the learner up to what to expect from the exam. At the end of the preparations, your child will have learned how to write legibly, recheck their answers and show all their work in preparation for the exams.

How It Works

In-person Tutoring

In-person tutoring involves a personal approach where the student or tutor commutes to the agreed-upon tutoring location. Whether it’s at the student’s home, the tutor’s home, or our learning centres, it guarantees a face-to-face interaction that’s quite beneficial for the learner.

If at home, the student has the advantage of a familiar studying environment, so their mind will be settled. Our tutoring centres have a pack of resources, all meant to enhance their learning experience, of course, with better peer interaction during break times.

Online Tutoring

Online tutoring services involve one-on-one interaction with the tutor but over the internet. This would need a computer or mobile device with access to the internet in a distraction-free environment. Even then, the approach is beneficial, as the learner gets tutored remotely without commuting.

With access to multiple online equipment, the tutor can improvise and redirect the sessions as they desire to make them more engaging and beneficial for your child.

About Our Tutors

A critical difference between our tutors and the rest is we personalise their tutoring experience. They wouldn’t mind sharing their own school experience with your child to motivate them. They are also innovative and open to using different materials to ensure nothing stands between your child’s success.

Generally, our tutors are friendly, approachable, and nonjudgmental. So your child can ask for clarifications and not feel judged or rushed to understand specific concepts. Their years of experience explain their knowledge and specialisation in different math and English topics.

How to Get Started

Contact us, and we’ll discuss about the services you need. You don’t need upfront payments, just reach out and we’ll organise everything.

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!
