Tutoring days run from Monday to Saturday, but do vary from location to location, so check with your school or tutor.
Each tuition session lasts for 2 hours.
Our tuition is for children aged between 5 and 16 years old.
Our groups are never more than 1 tutor to 6 students, so we can give individual support and attention.
Learning Hive provides weekly and monthly reports to keep you updated. We also encourage an open atmosphere where parents can speak freely to our Tutors. Our aim is to help students make accelerated progress from their starting points by planning personalised learning sessions tailored specifically to their needs. We measure progress by taking into account their baseline assessment and then subsequent formative and summative assessments, illustrating the impact of teaching on learning.
Our policies and procedures are available upon request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Core subjects (English, Maths and Science) from KS1 to GCSE.

All our tutors are fully vetted and compliant - we closely adhere to a ‘safer recruitment’ and ‘safeguarding’ process. It is mandatory that each tutor has an Enhanced DBS check and List 99 check. We also gain references for all tutors from previous employees to ensure there are no gaps in employments or causes for concern. We will only hire tutors who fully comply with our ‘safer recruitment’ and ‘safeguarding’ expectations, as we understand how important it is to ensure that all those who work with children are fully compliant.

Combining expert tutors, small group sizes, meticulously developed materials, and a flexible syllabus based on ability, not age, we deliver outstanding results for both students and schools.
Learning Hive can provide academic support to students with no extra cost to the school. This means it does not cost the school when working in partnership with Learning Hive, however the school benefits from the students' improved academic performance.
It costs the school nothing. Actually, Learning Hive contributes financially to the School.
Yes, it is absolutely safe for students to learn with Learning Hive - all of our tutors and staff are fully complaint with ‘safer recruitment’ and ‘safeguarding’ procedures.
Learning Hive will carry out a baseline assessment with all students and design a programme specifically tailored to each student’s needs. Formative and summative assessments will identify the impact of teaching on learning and the programme is adjusted to ensure that the student is making accelerated progress.
Learning Hive supports schools by enabling their students to access tuition sessions that will help their students improve their academic performance. This, in return, will help the school to improve their overall academic performance, meaning it's a ‘win-win’ situation for schools to partner with Learning Hive.
The minimum requirement to become a Learning Hive Tutor is that you should either have a degree, or be currently undertaking one from a RUSSELL GROUP university. Significant teaching/tutoring experience is also preferred. To become a tutor you must be aged 18 years or over.
All Learning Hive tutors must have excellent spoken and written English.
We look at a number of factors to decide which tutor would best suit the needs of the student. The key criteria are the qualifications tutors have in the subject to be tutored. We also look at whether tutors are able to meet any individual requirements a student may have.
As a general guideline, a tutor will have studied a subject at least two levels above that at which they intend to tutor. However, if we consider a specialist subject to be complementary to another qualification then the tutor may be allowed to teach that qualification. For example, a tutor with a Physics degree would be allowed to tutor Maths at GCSE.
Yes, but you should bear in mind that the summer period is quieter than during the academic year.
Yes! At Learning Hive, we ensure that you are assigned the same session each week to give you the opportunity to build a rapport with the students you teach.
