  • 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 Best Tutoring in Harlow

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 Harlow for your children

Our Tutoring Approach

The requirements for private tutoring vary hugely, but we seek to understand every learner’s struggle before starting the sessions. We then create individualised study timetables that focus on the learner’s interests.

Whether in English or Math, we will take a personalised approach that addresses their needs without assuming their strengths. We consistently monitor the learner’s progress and adjust the lesson plans, ensuring each new session benefits your child’s academics.

Spark Tutoring also incorporates critical life skill lessons to break from consistent studies and prepare our learners for the world outside the classroom walls. Typically, we do not just give the learners academic equipping; we instil valuable skills like critical thinking, effective communication, and important problem-solving techniques in them.

Our Services

Comprehensive Tutoring

Our private tutoring services elevate your child’s academic status and open them to endless potential. So, whether in English or math, we will embrace your kids and give them full attention, helping them build a strong foundation in the subject.

Following our personalised approach, our tutors ensure every challenging topic is addressed. The sessions will also include practice tests to ensure learners progress at their own pace.

We may follow a different syllabus coverage than in school since we aim to address the knowledge gaps in topics the learner finds challenging. Even then, our tutors are open to collaborating with your child’s class teacher for consistent, comprehensive learning.

Homework Help

Homework enhances learners’ understanding and improves their retention of key concepts. This is the best time to get an experienced tutor to patiently guide your child through the work.

The benefit of having a homework-help private tutor is the student learns study habits that are beneficial for their academic success. Generally, homework sessions can be shorter than regular tutoring sessions, but the steady increase in fluency and ability to solve problems matters.

Exam Preparation

Preparing for exams is often critical, as students often face large chunks of content to revise. This can sometimes feel daunting, especially if the learner has missing concepts from topics they never understood and has piled them off.

Booking a private tutor for their revision is the best help you could give your son or daughter towards their success. The learner will understand time management principles with our tutors and present clear solutions. With these factors approached, your child’s confidence is rebuilt, and they can quickly address the challenging aspects of studies with the tutor’s help.

We provide practice tests and mock exams to help the learner identify standard set topics and what the examiners often expect of them. It is not about mastering exam tricks but understanding important English and Math principles.

How It Works

In-person Tutoring

This entails face-to-face tutoring from home, any neutral setting, or our learning centres. The idea is to build a physical connection with the student, allowing the tutor to observe their progress more keenly for better guidance.

If you are tutored from home, all we need is a calm, quiet, and open room that you can easily access to follow up on the progress. We discourage bedrooms and prefer living rooms, dining rooms, or study rooms, if any.

Typically, in-person tutoring has little to no chance of misunderstandings or miscommunications. Instead, you get direct, face-to-face learning, allowing individual interaction and engaging learning experiences.

Online Tutoring

The growing technology allows us to connect with your child remotely through video calls and other digital tools. This, of course, reduces the transport constraints, especially for busy families. Moreover, it saves more time, so tutors will not be late for the sessions due to unforeseen travel delays.

Our online private tutors have the expertise to make the lessons lively and interactive despite the physical barrier. We use shared screens and other impressive virtual classroom tools that any learner would find impressive and engaging, irrespective of their class level.

Studying online also allows us to edit documents with your child and record sessions to help them with revisions and progress assessments.

About Our Tutors

If you need someone who is well-experienced and has outstanding teaching qualifications, we have them. While it may sound obvious to have the qualifications, experience matters especially when dealing with learners of different levels.

We will match you with a specialised tutor who will comfortably work with you to ensure your child’s success. Sometimes, the tutor may need to liaise with the school to streamline the learner’s experience, a duty that our tutors will gladly perform.

To ensure our tutors constantly achieve the expected results, we organise trainings that re-equip them with the latest curriculum trends. So, you’ll get a tutor willing to adapt to your child’s needs, ensuring their success.

How to Get Started

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!
