  • 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 Harrogate

We ensure each tutor applying for a job with us has double-checked background security issues and meets the average criteria, including pleasant academic credentials. Our tutors are then subjected to vigorous tests that help determine how they will handle different issues when tutoring our students. From this, we arrange frequent workshops and training to help them familiarise themselves with the environment they will encounter and how we expect them to handle different students.

Every child is gifted differently, so our tutors will prepare a customised lesson plan for your kid after assessing their strengths and weak points in the relevant subject. Then, understanding how important effective communication is, the tutor will frequently email you about the student’s progress based on the lesson plan created.

This lets every parent review and comments on their feedback, including what they feel we need to focus more on. With this, we’ll love to implement your feedback and work closely with you to ensure the child achieves their life goal.

We assume that if our tutoring fails, it is up to us. This is why we put every effort into ensuring our tutors meet our standard service terms that will maintain our successful reputation. However, spark Tutoring is not just about the marks, we are interested in the students’ general life, and that’s why we have tutoring for both Maths and English subjects.

The perfect Tutors in Harrogate for your children

We must also acknowledge the importance of parents working with teachers. Over our years of experience, we have enjoyed the support of different teachers who ensured the students can perform at their best, whether at home with the tutors or in school with the teachers.

Our tutors also know some students often struggle to concentrate fully in class. So the tutor comes equipped with every necessary element to help them hold and manage the student’s attention for the rest of the session.

We understand the importance of academics in today’s life, but we also know that lots of things go into academics for the student’s success. So we ensure our students have frequent life lessons engaged in helping sharpen their mindset and prepare them for real-world realities. This is more so important for any student completing their year 12 level.

Our tutors are residents of Harrogate, so they can easily navigate their way to your location if you need in-home training. However, other parents prefer having the students tutored from new environments to help maintain their attention in the sessions.

If you are not for in-home tutoring, we can gladly have your kid at our offices, where we’ll also engage them fully and ensure they can achieve their academic goals.

We also have online tutoring sessions for any interested parents. However, we understand how online classes often have engagement issues, but our tutors are well prepared for such situations. So you are assured that your kid will stay engaged just as they would in a physical session.

Most of our tutors are drawn finalists on campus, while some have already graduated from their specialised courses. The real deal here is having a smart brain tutor who is passionate about coaching young students. We believe our tutor’s life from elementary school through campus has had many life-shaping encounters, so we’d love our students to prepare for this.

However, it’s not about getting any student from the university to join our team; we ensure the students take specialised courses relevant to our main subjects of study, which are Maths and English. We also ensure the tutors have smart brains, evidenced by their academic credentials. General behaviour and good conduct is also key element for us since we want someone with an infectious positive attitude that our students can look forward to. We are also determined to get someone we can entrust with the student’s safety.

Maths and English are the foundation for every other subject your child will learn between year 1 to year 12 and in higher learning institutions. So we believe if your kids can master and understand their way around these subjects, they won’t have difficulty dissecting contents in other subjects.

We also know that apart from school life, Maths and English are the basics for real life in the corporate world. With a good foundation in these subjects, your child can easily express themselves wherever they find themselves and be sharp enough to understand different life concepts. Our goal is to raise a generation that can boldly stand for what is right and find its way through any situation.

This means being the biggest cheerleader for your kid; you need to ensure they have a perfect foundation in English and Maths. And Spark Tutoring tutors at Harrogate are the best choice for you. However, we also understand our parents are often busy, so we wouldn’t want to hook you up with binding contracts.

So you will only pay after every tutoring session. This makes it easy for you to opt-out whenever you want. However, we take full responsibility to ensure your child can succeed academically. Grab your chance today, get an experienced tutor assigned to your kid and enjoy our packaged services. Of course, you also don’t have to pay when your kid has not attended any session. But we prefer that you communicate at least 10 hours in advance to enable the tutor to prepare for other lessons.

We also offer tutoring in West London, Durham, Harrogate, Huddersfield, Tunbridge Wells, Maidenhead, Swansea, Bedford, Enfield and Online Tutoring Watford.

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!
