"I've used this website twice and its so easy to use and best of all I've had 2 very good tutors as an outcome. much quicker and easier than relying on word of mouth / people to send you their tutors details ( as they clearly state they have a great tutor you should use but are then reluctant to share incase the tutor gets too busy ???"

"The tutor I booked to work with was quite low standard and ineffective. We employed him to coach science, it was very basic and he seemed to only talk about the scoring in the past papers which anyone can see. He had the necessary references and reviews but was not at all motivational or even knowledgeable. I accept the First Tutors are not responsible for the level of coaching but think the required £24.99 to connect is a rip-off if the tutor is not up to standard. Hoping you can help to resolve this."

"First Tutors have introduced us to four tutors for my 15 year old daughter who is taking GCSEs this year. I like a number of things about this agency. The first is that they give you access to all the tutors they have in the subject you are looking for in your area. This means that you are able to review the profiles and select them yourself, rather than having the agency select them for you. Another is that the process is efficient. The introduction website works well. The introduction fee is in the region of £25 which seems reasonable. Finally, the four tutors, in different GCSE subjects, who have tutored my daughter have all been very good. I have been able to choose three who are experienced in the syllabus to be covered, and one who is not - but is able to add excellent value nonetheless. The level of experience is reflected in the cost of tuition. The atmosphere while the tutorials are progressing is calm and productive. I have found this agency to be extremely good and am happy to recommend."

"I was hesitant at first to sign up because i was afraid there was going to be too many hidden fees besides paying the tutor. However, paying the initial $9.99 fee was fair!"
