Whether you’re looking for small group or 1:1 support, we have the perfect tutors for your learners!

Saturday small group sessions at our Dunstable tutoring centre or 1:1 sessions online are an excellent use of your PPG, or CLA funding. Red Bird tutors are kind and caring: we have experience working with learners as support for their EHCP, those on temporary or permanently reduced timetables and other vulnerable learners.

We’ve worked with Red Bird Tutoring consistently over the last 3 years with some great results and feedback from our students.
Analysed impact and progress shows that on average each student improves at least one sub grade within a tutoring program with over 75% of all tutored students being on or above target by the end of the year in English, Math’s or Science.
With over 120 students completing a tutoring program over the last 2 years it has been an overwhelming success with 85% of all students recommending the tutoring for others.

Red Bird Tutoring is a group of friendly, 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!

We’re all also trained in the use of coaching techniques so that we can quickly boost confidence, raise engagement and help develop study skills that learners can take back into the classroom.

Simply put, our tutors love to teach. We’re interested in the science behind teaching, we attend conferences and read extensively. We’re proud that our tutors love teaching so much that they also choose to teach with us on a Saturday!

We have worked with Red Bird Tutoring for 4 years now and have been very impressed with their services.  The students who we have sent over the years have fed back that they have found the sessions informative and confidence building, and we have seen their grades rise accordingly.  The staff are friendly and caring, and they can be very flexible to our specific requirements as a school.  We look forward to working with them in the future.

I thought I would just let you know how thankful we are for the Red Bird Intervention that you arranged.

The girls have loved attending the sessions and our whole class is astounded by how much their knowledge of SPAG has improved. We are doing revision at the moment and these two girls are in their element.

They are so motivated and positive and I am delighted in the confidence they have gained. They always wanted to do well in class, and now they are doing well in class.

What a difference this has made to these two, happy, little starfish….

We were initially worried that our Year 10 students wouldn’t attend group tutoring on a Saturday, but attendance at Red Bird was almost 100%.

"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."

Parent of GCSE English learner
