Tutoring that fits with your family

Small groups offer the chance to work with peers facing the same challenges and to bounce ideas off each other, quickly leading to an increase in confidence and academic success.

And then there’s the hot chocolate and toast we serve at our tutoring centres – rumoured to make a small-group session the highlight of your child’s academic week!

But we know that our Saturday groups don’t work for every family, so we also offer individual tutoring at a time to suit your family.

Small Group Tutoring

We are thrilled to have welcomed our learners back to our tutoring centres!

Our Dunstable tutoring centre is at:
Ashton St. Peter’s Primary School, Dunstable, LU6 1EW

Our Huntingdon tutoring centre is at:
Brook Farm, Ellington, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, PE28 0AE
GCSE English for Year 11.

£150 per month, per subject
Maximum of 4 learners per group

Individual Tutoring

Ideal if you can’t make our Saturday small-group tutoring sessions or if you would like your child to work on an individualised program.

Our individual tutoring takes place online, however we may be able to offer in-home tuition, depending on your location.

Any subject.  Ages 5 – 18 years.

£45 per hour

Our Tutors

It takes a special person to become a Red Bird tutor.  Not only are they all exceptional teachers, they’re also passionate about helping each of our learners fulfil their potential.

All of our tutors are qualified and experienced classroom teachers.

Many of our tutors are current Heads of Year, Subject Leaders or members of Leadership Teams in local schools – tutors don’t come much more highly trained than ours!

Whichever tutor your child works with, they’ll benefit from Red Bird’s approach that focusses on giving learners the tools and support they need to inspire a life-long change of attitude to learning, rather than focussing on a quick fix.

For your peace of mind, all of our staff hold a recent DBS and we’re voluntarily registered with Ofsted.

What Parents are Saying

"Huge, huge recommendation. What a special team and approach Red Bird Tutoring have. Sue Michaels and her fab team have literally been a port in the storm for us during lock down. They have been supporting and enhancing home learning for my secondary school child for 7 weeks now. The tutoring has engaged and supported him amazingly and we're so grateful that we found them as a company. The tutors have been so kind and helpful - his confidence has soared. They've been a huge support and a friendly face throughout. Big thanks from us :-)"

Red Bird can absolutely take credit for this success; they have built her confidence no end over the last 6 months and helped her in the areas she was struggling."

Parent of GCSE English learner

"We started our son at Red Bird Tutoring in May 2019. He went from and expected grade 2 in Maths to an actual grade 4 obtained. I look back with regret on the missed opportunity I had to start him sooner. Who knows, he could have had a 6 or 7."

Parent of GCSE Maths learner

"Red Bird really make the effort to find out what makes each child tick, which is so important when inspiring young people to learn well.

My son willingly gives up a chunk of his valuable loafing time every Saturday morning for his Red Bird sessions - no complaints - and he comes out smiling and happy to tell me what he's been learning.

I consider this very high praise, coming from a teenager and I am happy that his confidence in this subject is growing well in advance of his GCSEs."

Parent of GCSE Maths learner

"From the first GCSE English language session that my son attended, his confidence has grown."
