At its heart, we know that education is a simple thing. Young people, whoever they are and wherever they may be, need to experience the joy of achievement, their own and others'… and then they need great teachers. And that is it. All the rest - the systems, the structures, the next initiative, the measurement, the policies, is like much of the political posturing we so often see, just noise.

We want children to open their minds and be aware of the best achievements and most exciting discoveries, finding inspiration in the very best that has been known and said in the world. We want children to develop the ability to discriminate between the good and bad, between the flabby and precise, between the superficial and substantial, and between a fake and the real thing.

There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students.

At Teachers To Your Home, we know that learning matters. In a world full of the celebrity and the trivial, we still hold on to real values and quality.

This is what we believe. This is what we are about. This is our why.

Every week, another 50 teachers sign up to offer their services, attracted by the prospect of joining a truly professional operation, brimming with passion and commitment.

Teachers to Your Home continues to grow and, over the coming months and years, will launch new services dedicated to improving the standard of education both in the UK and abroad.

do it best

  • Brilliant teachers love their subject and have excellent subject knowledge. They also continue to develop this knowledge. They continue to learn.
  • Brilliant teachers have strong personalities and are completely in control of what's going on around them. They can "act" their part; are respected by their students; are often warm, accessible, and enthusiastic.
  • Brilliant teachers are very hard working, putting great effort into preparing lessons, marking work and giving extra time and energy to their students.
  • Brilliant teachers are prepared and highly organised. They know what they want to achieve through the lesson, the term, and the year.
  • Brilliant teachers set high expectations for all students, not giving up on underachievers. They are determined that every student will master their subject.
  • Brilliant teachers care for their students, connecting with them, engaging them in the lesson, and involving them. They know how to deliver a lesson with the right pace and challenge, using the right resources to stimulate learning.
  • Brilliant teachers believe that it is student effort and teaching quality alone which will determine how well a student does … it is not the student's ability. The less able student will also get there in the end.
