Mayfair Consultants provide a comprehensive tutor placement and educational consultancy service, tailored to the needs and progress of the student both academically and perceptually. We hope to instil in the students the means to effectively and efficiently study, based on experience, and using proven learning strategies. The tutor works closely with the pupil 1-1 to significantly improve their abilities beyond the classroom environment.
We have set high expectations of learning & development amongst our tutors and consultants, who are professionals within their field of expertise – a unique combination of tutor – professional and academic. Most are qualified at a postgraduate level with many in the pursuit or possession of a doctorate of philosophy within their chosen disciplines. We find pupils are increasingly not in possession of the necessary tools to pursue their academic careers to fruition – and we are here to provide them.
Essentially, the incorporation of study skills and aptitude in lessons of every discipline by the tutor & the continued assessment and building of a skills base with the student including thorough careers advice and guidance. We offer highly academic and professional educational consultants in London and internationally.
We offer parents peace of mind that their children are in the most capable hands. We offer a unique and comprehensive tutor service that is tailored toward the individual needs of the pupil, such as school entrance and academic consultancy.
Through assessment, realistic and achievable goals are realised for pupils to work towards with the tutor. We develop the ability to learn, utilising tools that will in the future prove indispensable & invaluable for success in any discipline & walk of life.
Finding a good tutor in London can be a rewarding process and we do not just provide a tutor for an hour once a year. We are here throughout the year 365 days a year, at your disposal, catering to your individual requirements and planning your progress. We offer both tutors in London and tutors internationally in term time and during the summer. We can also deliver tuition online using the latest voice & video technology in high definition.
