About us

The Tutor Website was created in 2011, by Jamie Thomson - a private tutor and freelance copywriter who also runs Brand New Copy.


What We Offer


TTW is an educational services website that provides practical advice to tutors, parents and other educational professionals on the tuition industry in the UK. Our website offers:


- Access to free eBooks and publications

- Latest industry news and trends

- Quality educational articles

- Advertising space for tutors


Our intention is to provide practical and up to date information about the private tuition industry in the UK whilst providing a family-friendly service with a particular emphasis on safety.


Not An Agency


Unlike other tutoring websites, we are not an agency. We provide a space for tutors to advertise their services at a minimal cost in our private and home tutor directory, ensuring parents and students have free access to tutors’ contact details. This also ensures that all parties involved, do not have to pay agency fees. We've undergrone routine inspections from the UK employment agency and satisfied all their terms of not being an agency.


Our Publications


To date, we have published three ebooks, The Tutor's Guidebook, A Parent's Guide to Private Tuition and The Private Tuition Boom, all of which have been comended by parenting organisations and several universities in the UK.


Our educational blog is updated regularly with useful articles relating to home education in the UK and we've been asked to review educational products and websites by leading educational organisations in the UK.


Our Acheivements

Our website has been featured in the Guardian, the Telegraph and the Independant. Our publications are also used by several universities in the UK. We're recommended as a Family Friendly Site, by The Good Web Guide and by The Parent Practice.
