  • 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, LONDON
  • 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?

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!

We are a reputable tutoring agency known throughout Reading. We’ve worked with thousands of families and students in the area who’ve left us gleaming reviews expressing their satisfaction and gratitude with our service. For us, getting approval and earning the trust of parents and students is our greatest achievement.

We take a unique but proven approach to tutoring that emphasises individualised attention and customised learning. But our tutors use the same materials and resources students use in school. In some cases, the tutors also work with the student’s teachers, which yields even better results. Our tutors are trusted by teachers and parents because they are;

We work with the most academically gifted tutors in Reading. They have stellar academic credentials and outstanding careers. They come from various fields and feature some of the best performing university students from leading institutions and active and retired lecturers and teachers. We understand how essential tutoring is, so we always work hard to find the best minds in Reading. We also train and accredit the tutors to provide them with the skills to deliver to our high standards with every student they work with.

Effective and efficient communication is a rare skill we seek in every tutor at Spark Tutoring. It makes a massive difference in tutoring success. With excellent communication skills, tutors can explain advanced concepts to students using simple terms, making them easier to understand and more engaging. We also rely on effective communication from the tutors to communicate with families and keep them updated on the student’s progress.

Our approach inspires students to develop a love for learning and become better people. Our tutors are relatable and have gone through the same academic and life stages as the students they work with.

The tutors also help students develop habits that increase their success even after school.

Tutoring could make or break your child’s future. You should only work to find the best tutors with proven results. At Spark Tutoring, we’re not only good at helping students make their dreams a reality but also at giving families a pleasant and convenient tutoring experience. Here’s how we do it;

We tailor our lesson schedule to fit in with yours making tutoring convenient and stress-free for families. We offer online and in-home tutoring in Reading for families with varying needs. Besides choosing the type of tutoring you want, parents also determine when they want the student to take the lessons.

With in-home tutoring, the tutor comes to your home or any other physical tutoring location conducive to learning on weekdays and Saturdays during the day. This option is suitable for families with a predictable schedule. Online tutoring provides more flexibility because the tutors are available round the clock, seven days a week. Parents don’t have to worry about arranging locations for tutoring, and with our robust platform, tutors still deliver engaging individualised tutoring. Our convenient and flexible tutoring schedules ensure you never miss an important meeting, and your child can keep doing what they love making tutoring easier and more appealing.

Every child should have access to a tutor. But most families can’t afford tutoring because of the steep rates. At Spark Tutoring, we have affordable and competitive hourly tutoring rates. We also have easy and convenient pay-as-you-go payment terms. You only pay for the lessons you take, and we charge your card 24 hours after you take the lessons. You have complete control over how many lessons you take, and we don’t tie you down to contracts, upfront or minimum payments. You can also cancel at any time.

We also send you detailed reports of 10-lesson interviews. These reports feature what we’ve covered and intend to cover in the coming lessons.

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!
