Trusted Tutoring in Merton

Do you ever question the necessity of tutoring, especially if your kid is a top performer? At Spark Tutoring, we have the answers for you. Our private tutoring service is not only subject-oriented but also a life-changing course where your kid gets prepared for the real world beyond classroom activities.

We offer Maths and English tutoring for all learners from elementary to high school. Our choice for these subjects over the others is because of their importance across all schooling levels as well as their application beyond the classroom walls.

Any student growing up in the UK needs a better foundation in Maths and English since these form the basis for almost every other examinable subject in the UK’s curriculum. The English language also forms an important basis for effective communication across half the globe, while Maths applications are relevant in everyday activities.

Sparks Tutoring, therefore, provides the best private tutoring service for any student needing academic help and real-life exposure. Since we started the service, we are glad to have formed a great team of tutors whose passion and dedication to seeing students succeed is unmatched. The tutors’ hard work and determination have kept us afloat in the tutoring industry for over a decade.

  • 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 Merton

Our tutors’ great service results in a large community of achievers and independent persons who can face any challenge in life and find their way out. If you want your son or daughter to experience this too, enrol them in Spark Tutoring Merton today!

At Spark Tutoring, we value our parents and students’ peace of mind and well-being. So, we also offer online tutoring services for interested students. Although these may lack the physical interaction between the tutor and the student, it has multiple benefits for the learner and the parent.

The perfect Tutors in Merton for your children

Firstly, online tutoring services save on fuel or bus fare that would be used if the learner were to attend the sessions at our tutoring facilities in person. It also saves a great deal of movement time, which is important for students who have to work around busy schedules, such as those preparing for exams.

Another advantage of online tutoring is that the student gets unlimited access to research materials recommended by the tutor. This helps better the learner’s understanding of challenging concepts, therefore reinforcing their learning experience.

The online service from Sparks Tutoring also ensures recorded sessions to ease the learner’s revision moments. With the video sessions, your child can comfortably revisit any past lessons and review different concepts that they find challenging. An additional advantage of these video recordings is that the learner enjoys the review at their pace.

We also offer tutoring in Hammersmith and FulhamBarking and DagenhamHaringeyHaveringKensington and ChelseaMertonRayleighRichmond upon ThamesTower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

Our online sessions are planned with great flexibility in mind, which means we can schedule some classes for evening hours when the learner is settled from their day-to-day engagements. Whatever your preference is, we will respect and realign to ensure your normal schedules are uninterrupted.

About Our Tutors

We are ranked as the best-performing private tutoring service because of our tutor’s selfless attitude and passion for academics. These men and women are not just ready to help any interested students but also well-equipped with everything needed to propel your kids towards success.

While academics is our main mission, we are proud to have tutors whose interest in seeing young minds succeed knows no limits. Our tutors are always ready to guide any student on important life matters, especially the senior students who are about to join higher learning institutions. This is why we not only look at the tutor’s academic experience when hiring them; we also focus on their general conduct and commitment to mentorship.

We also aim to raise a generation that can stand for what is right, fight their way through and solve any challenges posed on their way. So, to achieve this goal, the tutoring team must be ready to serve as positive role models that our students can look up to at any time. It is no wonder that our tutors are also great persons of integrity from some of the best learning institutions any student can want to attend. This puts us a step ahead in building the learner’s trust and mentorship mindset in our tutors.

Our tutors also understand the importance of patience and empathy when dealing with young minds. With this virtue, we are able to handle students of all types without discriminating against them. Patience helps us understand that not all learners have equal abilities, so we know when to be patient with a student when they are struggling to understand a certain concept.

Similarly, we are also aware of different child mistreatment cases in Merton. So, our tutors are alert to spot any learner suffering from trauma-related issues. This helps us handle the learners accordingly, rebuilding their confidence in class and helping them realise their worth. So, nothing should stop you from enrolling your kid with Spark Tutoring in Merton. Whether you need a tutor who can handle a physically challenged student, we have great people who will show them love while helping them build on their academic strengths and weaknesses.

Our Tutoring Approach

We use specific study plans at Spark Tutoring to address individual students’ needs. Whether your child has challenges in Maths, English or both subjects, we will create an individualised lesson plan to balance their weak and strong areas. So upon enrollment in our service, a specialised tutor is assigned to assess the learner’s ability; then, we will know how best to approach the kid’s needs.

As our parent, you too have a say over the kind of tutor you want for your kid. Our website has a service page dedicated to our tutors, their achievements, qualifications and other relevant information that matters to you. You can scroll through and pick one whose qualification matches your child’s needs.

However, we will discuss the available options with you and see that the learner is given the best attention. To get started with our private service, please fill out our enquiry form, and then we will reach out and discuss more with you about your preferred tutoring approach. Remember, you can choose the online service, home tutoring, or in-centre tutoring. Whatever it is, we promise to respect your choice and offer you the most affordable charges. Enroll your kid today with Spark Tutoring Merton and get their future shaped in advance.

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!
