Why choose Online Tutoring?

 Do you feel that your child could do with extra academic support after missing out on months of school due to the Covid-19 pandemic? Is there a specific school or college they want to get in to and need help getting the right grades? Do you feel your child will benefit from being taught in a 1:1 environment as opposed to a large class? 

We have looked at the most common reasons why parents are frequently turning to Smile Tutors for their online tutoring. 


Online tutoring provides a wealth of benefits that can completely be personalised to suit your student’s needs. With class sizes in the UK continuing to grow, and children trying to catch up on missed lessons due to school closures, a 1:1 tutoring experience could be exactly what your child needs to succeed. Tutors on Smile Tutors can provide initial free trials where you, the tutor and the student can sit down and discuss exactly what the student needs and what their goals are. Our tutors will then provide a completely personalised tutoring experience to ensure your child reaches their goals. 

Adhere to Local Government Advice 

With the Government guidelines with regards to Covid-19 ever-changing, online tutoring can provide a safe and convenient way for your student to receive education, without having to physically invite a tutor into your home. With new local additional restrictions being updated all the time, you can rest assured you are always in line with Government Advice when using Smile Tutors online.
