About us


  Joe Butler-Biggs   Education: BA Philosophy, London School of Economics.  Specialism: Dyslexia and SEN. Numeracy and Literacy.   "I think that the best advice I can give to any new tutor is to listen to your student. If they aren't talking, you aren't asking enough questions. The best learning happens when both minds are working together."

"I think that the best advice I can give to any new tutor is to listen to your student. If they aren't talking, you aren't asking enough questions. The best learning happens when both minds are working together."

The London Academy of Tutors was established by two tutors who had a desire to make significant, positive changes to an industry that can be variable in quality.

We studied History at Cambridge (Jack), and Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at the London School of Economics (Joe). These subjects focus on how knowledge is acquired, and ten years of successful examinations and subsequent years of private tuition, teaching English to speakers of other languages, teaching children with SEN, providing classroom assistance and assessing method and teaching approach at every step of the way, has allowed us to develop a deep understanding of how to effectively communicate ideas, and how to optimise the tutoring relationship.
