Exam Preparation

Union Tuition London provides experienced tutors with strong academic records. They are carefully matched up with clients based on your goals and desired learning outcomes. Harry and Michael personally interview and hand-select their tutors. They look for individuals who have not only proved themselves in their own degrees and other qualifications, but also possess the necessary interpersonal skills and empathy to achieve results in private tuition. It is our standard practice for a student to be assessed in whichever area they are looking to improve, prior to lessons beginning. The tutor is then presented with a document outlining the areas a student finds difficult, so they are able to immediately make progress from the first session. We offer tutoring in all major academic subjects, as well as arts-based subjects such as photography, music and drama. Our company is based in London and this is where most of the tutoring takes place. However, our tutors also work out of London on request and outside of the U.K for longer residential placements. We have also created many of our own teaching resources, particularly for the 7+ and 11+ assessments. If you would like to use our papers and practice booklets, these can be purchased on request.
