Over the last nine years, we have assembled a team of outstanding teachers and experienced tutors to help augment and support, rather than replace, a child’s educational development at school.
Our team consists of a small, hand-picked group of tutors, who undergo a rigorous interview process and training. We work with professional teachers, academics with a proven track record and tutors with a genuine talent for working with children. We offer our tutors professional development seminars led by qualified teachers and provide them with teaching resources of the highest quality. All our tutors and staff are DBS checked, first aiders are always on site and all staff undergo an in-house child-protection workshop.
Our tutors teach weekly 90-minute lessons from purpose-built classrooms from our office in Elstree. Our lessons follow full Schemes of Work with accompanying classwork, weekly assignments and tri-weekly assessments. Our tutors are supported by a full-time administrative team who ensure that the tutors’ time is spent doing what they do best; planning, teaching and evaluating outstanding lessons.
The work done in lessons is supported by a state-of-the-art website with parent and tutee portals. All lesson materials are loaded onto the portal along with weekly personalised feedback from the tutor about each tutee in order to ensure that all three members of the tutoring triangle (parents, tutees and tutors) are all on the same page.
At Trefoil, we believe that our commitment to providing exceptional educational services does not finish at the end of each lesson. Our online portal and dedicated office team help ensure that there is a close connection between the student, the tutor and the parent. We aim to support our students and their families through all of the educational choices they make and so run a series of advice evenings throughout the year.
