Why teachers to your home are becoming one of the UK’s leaders in home tuition


Teachers To Your Home is a tutoring business appointing qualified and experienced teachers as tutors, to provide high quality home tuition and home schooling for families, schools, local authorities and businesses, across the UK.

The company was founded in January 2015 by Gill and Jim Dixon, previously both teachers and senior leaders within the Independent, Grammar and State School Sectors. The business was originally envisaged to provide only a service across Oxfordshire but, over the last three years, has expanded rapidly now providing a service right across the UK.  Teachers To Your Home currently works with over 18,000 qualified and experienced teachers, who also choose to offer their skills as high quality home tutors.

Over 18,000 qualified teachers

Tutoring stands out as the single most popular way for parents to seek to assist their children’s education. The demands for tutoring continue to increase, a consequence of the increasing pressures on schools and the need for children to succeed academically. Tutoring is an increasingly large part of the UK’s education economy and is currently estimated to be worth £4.5 billion, click here for more details.

Tuition in the UK is largely an unregulated profession, with many tuition agencies and websites offering undergraduates, students, retired academics and others, as tutors. Teachers To Your Home believe that qualified and experienced teachers provide the highest quality of home tuition and home schooling.“Our teachers are not just tutors, who support learning …” says founder Gill Dixon “ … they are professional teachers, who direct learning. Our teachers are subject specialists; experienced, energetic and up-to-date with an ever-changing curriculum, and the current requirements of exam boards and specifications.”

On average 40 teachers join each day


ALL OF THE TUTORS ARE “PROPER” TEACHERS: Unlike many other tuition agencies, all 18,000 tutors are qualified and experienced teachers. The majority are current and full-time teachers in schools across the UK, across the independent, grammar, academy and state sectors. All are subject specialists; reliable and up-to-date with a changing curriculum, and the current requirements of exam boards and specifications.

THE CLIENT CAN CHOOSE THEIR TEACHER: Unlike many other tuition agencies, the families and clients are able to talk directly with the teacher before making any decisions. An initial phone call enables the teacher to introduce themselves to the client more fully; and enables the client to talk directly with the teacher, to see if they are a good fit for their needs; in terms of their character and style of the teacher, as much as their skill and experience. Tuition works at its very best when there is an excellent rapport between the student and tutor.

TUITION IS FULLY FLEXIBLE AND CONVENIENT: Unlike many other tuition agencies, there are no upfront costs, commitments or minimum requirements for lessons. Tuition can start and stop at any time.

TUITION IS PROVIDED AT THE HOME: Unlike many other tuition agencies, teachers are required to teach at the client’s home, at their convenience: weekdays, evenings, weekends or holidays; generally, one hour lessons are recommended for younger children, 90+ minutes for seniors and adults; though the rhythms and routines for lessons can be flexible and as required. This enables parents to stay close to the process, they can sit in on some of the lessons, talk with the teacher each week and have a very clear understanding of the progress being made by their child.

TEACHERS TO YOUR HOME OFFERS THE VERY HIGHEST LEVELS OF SAFEGUARDING: All teachers have Enhanced DBS Clearance (previously known as the CRB check). Teacher also provide tuition at the client’s home, in a supervised setting, to ensuring the highest standards in terms of child and tutor safeguarding.

TEACHERS TO YOUR HOME PROVIDES A PROMPT AND PERSONAL SERVICE: Unlike many other tuition agencies, all of the clients can talk directly with a consultant, who will answer any questions and be able to advise. They are open long hours and over the weekend. They take away the hassle of long and fruitless searches with online tuition websites. They can generally arrange the appointment of a teacher within 2 days, offering one or two or three teachers for each family to consider.

Gill Dixon comments “The quality of our services can never exceed the quality of our teachers, so we are very fortunate to have the energy and enthusiasm of so many gifted and committed teachers now working with us. The very best teachers do not just simply tell or explain or demonstrate: they inspire, and they change lives. This is what Teachers To Your Home is about.”

Teachers To Your Home aims to establish itself as the market leader in the UK for high quality home schooling and home tuition. Based in offices in Witney, Oxfordshire, it is developing a reputation for providing a high-quality personal service and also speaks with increasing authority for the sector, providing advice and support for families, schools, LAs and businesses across the UK.
