"Going so great! Very happy with Siobhan and very happy with Minerva!

18 June 2021

"Really appreciate the structure and clarity of what’s going to be achieved and how. As I mentioned by text, the lesson was a smashing success with [Pupil] and [Pupil]. You injected a great dose of confidence in both them regarding the GCSE and A level process, including in [Pupil] who was in tears before meeting with you because he didn’t think he could ever get better at handwriting characters. He came out of the lesson jumping, believing that he can do it, and already spent today 20 minutes writing sentences with the characters he knows. Thank you so much to you and Jessica." More...

Q&As

Making a difference, however big or small, to the lives of young people in the UK and around the world, on a daily basis, makes for some motivation!

At our South London HQ, we operate with the same values that we encourage in our pupils - meet challenges with a smile and work hard to get the results we need.

We’re not a ‘school’ and we don’t act like one. We put tons of energy and personality into what we do - loving the days on the phone to parents just as much as recruiting new tutors and dishing out plentiful supplies of croissants at our monthly tutor breakfasts!

We're also very proud to have done our bit to ensure our pupils haven't been left behind during the pandemic - and we're excited for the future, continuing to see them go from strength to strength. :D

A decade ago, the world of private tutoring was very different.

The only way parents were likely to secure the services of an accomplished tutor was through a personal recommendation or by using a pre-established ‘agency’, usually a far more expensive option.

Neither of these avenues were open to all, nor did they offer the professional, forward-thinking standards that we felt a smart, modernised private education company could provide.

We started Minerva to make world class private tuition available to all, to help professionalise the industry, and to offer a level of service that we couldn't find anywhere else.

Most of our tutors work with us full time, which makes an enormous difference.

It goes without saying that a Minerva tutor requires one of the UK government's new, advanced DBS checks - but they also have to pass our comprehensive (and friendly!) recruitment interview process.

Who do we look for? In our experience, a lot can be achieved by introducing a child to an inspirational "mentor"-style figure, a role model who is able to ignite their interests where others have hit a wall. But usually this isn’t enough. Tutors need to lead by example and must instil precision, creativity, critical-thinking, and exam savviness - all essential skills for growing up in today’s fast-changing world.

The ability to inspire confidence is also key - if unlocked, confidence can have a tremendous influence on a child's ability to create and improve.

So... with Minerva, you tutor will likely have an infectious, naturally-motivational personality and a proven, razor-sharp intellect.

We've also built our own reporting system called "Temple" to make the entire tutoring process more accountable. Want to know what's been covered? Parents can now read reports on their children's progress and see the progress we're making over time. Lesson reports are available online after every lesson, and access to Temple is included in our hourly fees.

"Sessions with Alice are going really well and Lucy is loving being challenged by the work. We're very happy. Also Temple is fabulous, the transparency is great. I'm not there for the sessions so it's really helpful for me to be able to see what's being covered." 11 Plus parent, 2020

100%. We went fully remote during the pandemic and it looks like it's largely here to stay. Prior to everything changing, we were already very experienced online tuition providers - so if it's online you're looking for, we've got it covered.

"Eyeopening and has gone extremely well!" Recent parent on the effectiveness of online homeschooling

While lots of our tutoring has moved online, we are resuming 'in person' tutoring when asked by parents. At the moment, our policy puts the decision in the hands of your tutor. If they are happy travelling to you, then so are we.

Services

We provide expert online tuition in all subjects, disciplines, and exams - e.g. primary level, GCSE, A Level, IB, computer coding, entrance exams (7, 11+, 13+)

Please note that demand for tutors has risen in the pandemic and prices may be higher

We provide expert private tutors to visit your home if you are based in Greater London. Occasionally, we may be able to help with face to face tuition if you live outside London, so it's worth asking. But 95% of our "In Person" team live within the M25.

Please note that demand for tutors has risen in the pandemic and prices may be higher.

We provide full or part time homeschooling solutions for families who are looking for an alternative to mainstream school. Our homeschooling services are fully bespoke, please get in touch for more information.
