Our interview Preparation Workbook is a highly popular and affordable solution for parents looking to prepare their child for interviews. 11+ Interview Preparation Workbook is designed for parents and children to work through together. The book is based on the first half of the 1:1 interview session that Education Boutique offers.
Our expert KS1 tutors provide fun sessions tailored to your child’s interests. At this age, we mostly support maths development, early reading and phonics or writing skills. We also support students who are moving the UK from international schools.
Our tutoring team are passionate about supporting learning at all ages. We offer one-to-one tutoring in all subjects including: English, Maths, Science, Geography, History, Computing, Music, Performing Arts and Drama, Music, Business Studies, Psychology, French, German, Latin, Ancient Greek. Whether you are looking to accelerate learning, supplement school teaching or support a learning need, we have a tutor to match you with.
Even during COVID, our selection process is rigorous. Initially, tutors upload all of their application documents onto our secure online portal, where a member of the matching team reviews the application. Tutors are asked a series of profile questions as well as having to upload their tutoring CV. Once the necessary documents have been uploaded we then invite successful applicants to attend a Zoom interview. This takes place with Lucy’s mum, an experienced personal assistant to some of the most successful head teachers and city bankers in the UK. This interview is recorded for Lucy to review and make a final decision. New for 2021, tutors will agree to a code of conduct formulated by the Tutors Association and if they need any guidance in the particulars of certain schools or entrance exams, a call is arranged with Lucy.
Education Boutique require all tutors to have an up-to-date ‘Enhanced DBS’ but, during the course of 2021, will be moving towards all tutors having their DBS registered on the update service.
For online tutoring, we use a mixture of Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype but, prefer the former due to the passwords, room lock and waiting room features. At present we ask our tutors not to record sessions as the storage of video data is a complex one. This year, we will be introducing management drop-ins to lessons, where appropriate.
The Safeguarding Lead for Education Boutique is Miss Lucy Alexandra Spencer who can be reached directly on 01344 374131 and pressing the correct number to raise a safeguarding concern when prompted.

Before 2020, Education Boutique delivered 90% of it’s tutoring on a face to face basis. In March, like many businesses, our tutors pivoted to 100% tutoring online. Director, Lucy Spencer, trained hundreds of tutors, teachers and schools in the initial months of lockdown; gaining national media recognition. Our online teaching methods are progressive and engaging and this is a quality we seek in new tutors for the company.
