So, if you’re looking for tutoring services in Portsmouth, Spark Tutoring is here to help.

  • 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 Portsmouth

Our highly qualified teachers have years of experience working with children from all backgrounds and levels of proficiency. We work with each student individually to create an individualised learning plan to help them succeed in their desired field or subject area. Our instructors are dedicated professionals who provide quality instruction tailored to meet each student’s needs and goals. Our goal is to help students develop confidence, motivation and self-esteem to reach their full potential academically and personally.

The key to our success is focusing on each student individually and creating a customised program based on their needs and goals. Our teachers know students are different and are trained on how to handle them both. This means that parents can assess their student’s performance easily. The teachers provide individualised instruction in a supportive environment where students feel comfortable asking questions until they understand the material being taught. Their curriculum is designed to meet each student’s needs, so you can handle the stress of feeling overwhelmed by difficult concepts or subjects!

The perfect Tutors in Portsmouth for your children

Our tutors are also well-trained in handling home or online classes, so you do not need to worry about having your child go elsewhere for their lessons.

We also offer flexible scheduling options so that you can find a time slot that works for everyone involved. Our tutors will also work with your schedule rather than vice versa, which makes it easier for both parties involved.

You can choose a tutor for your child based on their academic needs. For example, if your child is struggling with math, consider finding a tutor who specialises in helping students learn math concepts and solve problems. If your child struggles with reading comprehension, consider finding a tutor specialising in improving reading comprehension skills. By choosing a tutor who knows how to help your child improve in certain areas, you can ensure that they get the help they need to do well in school.

If your child is having trouble learning certain subjects at school, it can be helpful for them to receive one-on-one instruction from an experienced tutor. An experienced tutor can explain difficult concepts in ways that make sense for each student’s unique learning style and level of understanding. In addition, an experienced tutor will know how best to motivate and encourage students to have a positive attitude towards each subject.

The best way for parents to find out about a tutor’s background is to ask for references from former clients or colleagues at work or school. If possible, parents can also go through some of the papers written by tutors whenever they are interested to know more.

We also give our parent clients the right to ask about the methods used by tutors so that they can decide if these methods are appropriate for their children. They are also free to check how much experience tutors have had in teaching students who have similar problems as their kids have now. The parents are also not limited from asking how long students’ performance can improve under these methods.

We offer flexible sessions to choose when and where you want your lessons. Our tutors will come to you, at home or in school, whatever works best for you! Our years of experience in education mean we know what makes a great tutor. We want our students to enjoy learning as much as possible!

Our tutors are hand-selected for their passion for teaching and ability to motivate students. They are experts in their subject area and have excellent communication skills, which makes them perfect for one-on-one sessions with students of all ages and abilities. We have a wide range of qualified maths tutors who have experience working with children of all ages – from primary school through secondary school up to GCSE level (and beyond).

Our primary goal when we started Spark Tutoring was to provide an affordable and high-quality tutoring service for students who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Every student should have access to a good education, regardless of their financial situation or location; therefore, our prices are fully inclusive, and there are no hidden fees or contracts involved. We have a wide selection of tutors on our books who are able to offer lessons covering all levels and subjects, including English and maths; however, if you require something specific, then please do not hesitate to ask.

Our service is designed with your child’s individual needs in mind. We are flexible and will work around your schedule as much as possible. If you are looking for a good tutor for your child, consider getting in touch with Spark Tutoring. We have been providing tutoring services for several years and have a lot of experience in this area. We understand what parents want and know how to provide them with the best quality service. Our tutors are all highly qualified, and they will be able to provide your child with all the assistance they need. We also have an extensive library of tutors who can help with any subject or grade level.

Our rates are very reasonable, and there is no minimum monthly amount that you need to pay us. There are no contracts either, so if you change your mind about having us help your child, there will be no penalty charges or anything like that involved!

We also offer tutoring in Portsmouth, Scotland, Scarborough, Surrey, Leigh, Croydon, Sutton Coldfield, Milton Keynes, Brentwood, Glasgow and Oxford.

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!
