Welcome to Inkerman Tutors
Hello and thanks for visiting our site! Here’s a bit about how we got going……
Back in 2008, when we first came to Chichester, I was pleased to land a job teaching Latin part-time at a prestigious local prep school. I then set about locating a tutoring agency with which to sign up for supplementary work – as I had previously done in London. There wasn’t one. It seemed to me that an important local service was missing. National websites on which random tutors advertise their services are impersonal. As a client, I wouldn’t use one: parents want only the best for their children, and need to be absolutely sure that the tutor they employ is going to deliver. For a long while, I nourished the idea of setting up a local tutoring agency which would help parents by providing carefully chosen introductions to this end.
Inkerman Tutors was duly born in 2016 and has been a success from the off. Inkerman is unique in that we meet our prospective tutors face to face and get to know them a little bit. The personal element is our calling card. That, and the fact that our tutors are all qualified and experienced: a safe pair of hands. We pride ourselves on matching students with tutors who we believe will connect with them and answer their needs. Our results speak for themselves in the form of parent testimonials and student performance in exams.
In 2018 I took up a second teaching job, this time at a senior independent school. I have many excellent colleagues and contacts within the teaching profession, who themselves have contacts. With online tutoring taking off – even locally, for reasons such as time-management and convenience – we are now reaching further afield into other parts of the country.
I am certain that our tutors are special, and will enable your child to develop in confidence, gain a love of learning and reach their potential.
