Tutor Agency Comparison 

Updated Q1 2018

Finding a tutor agency is the easy bit. Just have a look on google and you'll find dozens of agencies offering tutoring services. But how do you know which agency charges the least (offers the best value) when most of the detail is hidden in the small print? 

To put you back in control, we teamed up with leading statistician Dr Georgios Papageorgiou from Birkbeck University of London to bring you a side-by-side cost comparison of the UK's most recognised agencies. The index is updated quarterly and sorted by best to worst value for money, so you can check the facts before you begin your search.

Money Saving Tip for Parents:

Don't be fooled by google ads or a naturally high google page ranking. That doesn't always mean you are getting the best value for money. Remember, tutors often work for multiple agencies, so it certainly pays to shop around for the best deal.


As a simple rule of thumb, we recommend starting with the best value agency. If you don't find what you are looking for then move onto the next best value agency. You could find yourself paying significantly less for the same tutor and saving yourself a lot of money - why pay more than you have to?
