One Stop Tutors provides highly qualified and experienced tutors in Harrogate and surrounding areas. Our tutors offer one to one and small group tuition from Key Stage 1 to A level, both face to face and online. We have subject specific tutors for Maths, English, Science and Languages plus most school curriculum subjects.
All One Stop Tutors have a proven track record of teaching or tuition.
Our tutors can be seen in the Tutor Gallery which provides details of experience and qualifications alongside testimonials and a short bio summarising their approach. We also offer adult tuition and many other tutors who are not included in the gallery. Our aim is to match each student with the best tutor for them, depending on availability, area, subject, teaching style, personality, gender and individual needs. If we don't have a tutor that meets your needs we will endeavour to find one.
One Stop Tutors is owned and managed by Jacqui Cardani, herself a tutor in Biology A level and GCSE Science
Jacqui moved to North Yorkshire in 1997 after completion of her PGCE and spent several years teaching, mainly at Huntington School in York. She also works as an examiner for AQA and lives in Knaresborough with her husband and two children, who go to Secondary school in Harrogate. As a parent and tutor, Jacqui can see two perspectives, both of which influence the management of One Stop Tutors as it evolves and grows. She is also well aware of the recent changes in the education system with the new GCSEs and A levels and the impact these have on students.
It was by chance that the idea for One Stop Tutors came about. After tutoring her niece and seeing the benefits of one to one tuition first hand, Jacqui set up as an independent tutor herself in the summer of 2014. Immediately taken aback by local demand, Jacqui was inundated by requests for ‘do you know a good tutor for Maths, English, Chemistry …’ Having worked in sales and the community as well as teaching, Jacqui knew lots of potential tutors and referred students locally. From here One Stop Tutors was born, providing a platform for other tutors to promote themselves without the cost of advertising, setting up a website or paying big commission fees from each lesson to an agency.
One Stop Tutors’ main objective is to provide excellent tutors with the reassurance that all academic and safety checks have been done already. We take an altruistic approach, charging only a small monthly or introductory fee to tutors so that our tutors feel valued, students get good value for money and it also allows us to take on only the very best local teachers and tutors. In return One Stop Tutors check enhanced DBS status, check academic references, interview tutors to ascertain suitability and most importantly we continue ongoing checks and receive feedback on individual tutors from students and parents. It also means that in circumstances where parents feel uncomfortable querying a tutor directly, they can ask a question via One Stop Tutors. .
There is no extra cost to students for this service, but we do ask all students to be willing to provide feedback after a few lessons and testimonials where they feel it is appropriate.
