Trusted Tutoring in Scarborough

Our tutors play a significant role in our success reputation. This is why we take time and ensure we have the best tutors that will equip your child and help them discover their maximum potential in life and academics. Among the different things that contribute to our parent’s satisfaction are the following:

We have the simplest; 3-minute booking process. It takes 24 to 48 hours to set you up with the appropriate tutor, and the kid can start their tutorial classes immediately. We have no contracts and upfront payments; instead, all our payments are made after the lesson. We take full responsibility of your child’s safety whether at home or at our tutoring centres we ensure the child is tutored by persons of good conduct.

We understand how inconvenient it can be for a parent to shift their busy schedules. So we let families agree on the best time for the kid’s tutoring and the appropriate location that won’t inconvenience them. For example, we have tutoring centres around Scarborough, but some parents prefer their children tutored from home.

  • 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 Scarborough

Our tutors prefer one-on-one tutoring to help understand and manage the kid better. But when families are too busy, we can also hook you up for online tutoring, as long as it’s adjustable in your schedule without losing important work meetings.

We have nurtured a culture of updating parents on the kids’ progress while sharing our current and future lesson plans. This way, it is possible for the current to stay up to date with everything, and you can even request adjustments on sectors that you feel the kid needs more attention. This is why communication is key and why we let parents make payments after the kid attends the session.

The perfect Tutors in Scarborough for your children

Our tutors are model citizens from within and outside Scarborough, so you can have someone that clearly understands the region around you. This means it wouldn’t be hard to find your place if you need your kid tutored from home. We are also considerate about the persons we hire for the tutoring role, and so the majority of our tutors are retired and active teachers. We also have fresh graduates from the university who are very instrumental in tutoring secondary students who are just rediscovering themselves and their life expectations.

It is our pleasure at Sparks Tutoring to work with your student’s teacher whenever possible and walk together to ensure your kid’s academic success. Although our tutoring approach is different from normal class lessons, we appreciate and complement everything done by teachers, from their guidance and moral support on your kid’s growth.

Our tutors also undergo different acclaimed training programs that equip them with the necessary skills to handle our students with the dignity they deserve while meeting our expected results.

We work tirelessly to ensure each student enrolled in our program emerges successful academically and in life instances. For example, our exam preparation programs help guide students on avoiding anxiety issues and instead focus on maximising their total marks in the exam. We will also help the student learn different time management techniques that ensure the kid can grow into an accountable person in academics and out of class as well.

One of the reasons we prefer having tutors from higher learning institutions is that we want them to share their experiences with your kid. This is why we often source freshly graduated students from leading institutions known for specialised subjects basically in Maths and English. From the shared experiences, it is possible for the student to feel encouraged and even motivated to work hard for their goals in life.

In the university, students often need constant follow-ups on when to study or not. But it is up to their determination for them to get results. Such experiences and many others are perfect for grade 12 students who are just about to transition into their academic life. So mentorship is one of the basic curricula at Spark Tutoring in Scarborough. This is why we are keen on nurturing all-rounded students who can be better people in the nation.

We, therefore, hand-select our tutors to ensure we shortlist only the best tutors that will achieve our desired dream for each student enrolled for our tutoring. Every tutor then gets supplied with the necessary resources to expand their resource centre while working with the students. This ensures the parent doesn’t have many commitments, rather than just following up on their child’s progress.

We also train our tutors to handle each student differently based on their individual challenges. This, therefore, calls for different learning methods and customised lesson plans suited to the student’s needs. This has helped us build our relationships with just the right stakeholders, including the parents, students, and teachers.

One of the many reasons that we chose to tutor this young group is because it is in their early life stages that a parent will often notice some academic struggles in their kids. And this is also the best time to engage the kids and help them learn to adapt to different environments while focusing on their studies. The majority of academic problems in secondary schools can also be traced back to the kid’s primary school, where specific concepts were not understood as well as they should.

Our primary and secondary tutors in Scarborough understand how relevant the tutoring sessions are for each student in these grades. These tutors will help your child understand their identity and learn how to make life-changing decisions. More so as a secondary school student, one can face lots of life changes that may impact their studies. Still, thanks to Sparks Tutoring, we have specialists that will help parents with the life issues of their kids while also helping them find their academic standards.

We are also aware of students that often struggle to maintain calmness during exams and tests, but know how best to help them. Send us a mail today, and fill our online form in under 3 minutes for your kid to enjoy our tutoring deal with the best tutors in Scarborough.

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!
