Private tuition with a personal touch…

Local tutors in Manchester, Stockport & Wilmslow, Cheshire


I’m Alison Warburton, experienced tutor and founder of the Wilmslow, Cheshire based private tuition agency, 1-2-1 Home Tutors. Being a tutor myself I understand what it is that parents look for in a tutor and also what they want from a private tuition service.

I have a BSc (Hons), MSc and PhD and have spent the last 12 years tutoring, teaching and lecturing, helping students improve their grades in Maths, Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics), 11+ & entrance exam tests and primary studies at all levels to GCSE & A Level and tutor in Manchester and Wilmslow, Cheshire areas. When I started tutoring parents would often ask me to recommend private tuition and tutors in other subject areas – they wanted a personal recommendation, an opinion they could trust. So I founded 1-2-1 Home Tutors, designed specifically to offer a bespoke tutor matching service between the needs of a student and the right tutor.

Because I am still an active tutor, parents of students – and sometimes the students themselves - continue to ask me for a recommendation for other subject tutors and happily, I can now oblige! 1-2-1 Home Tutors has now grown and we have over 150 private tutors in Manchester, Stockport and Wilmslow, Macclesfield, Cheshire areas registered with us and offering 1-2-1 home tutoring help in many subjects and at all levels. Additionally, because I am in continual contact with many parents, I frequently receive ad-hoc positive feedback about the tutors I've recommended – it’s great when the tutor I’ve recommended has such a positive influence and its great to continually hear words like the tutor’s fantastic, really good, excellent and so on. That’s when I really know we’ve recruited not just a good, but an exceptional tutor.

Speaking to parents, and students, I know that what they really want from a private tutor is a tutor who is not only knowledgeable about their subject and the requirements for tests and exams but also someone who is able to relate and communicate with students’ and who cares about the students’ education as much as the parents do. After all, children are the most precious thing in the world so you want the absolute best for them. And I’ve found the same applies to people who are seeking out private tuition for themselves, they want to better themselves and need a personal recommendation and a listening ear to make the right choices.

So if you need a tutor in Manchester, Stockport, Wilmslow, Macclesfield & East Cheshire areas, or are looking for private tuition for your children or yourself in any subject and at any level, or if you are a tutor looking to become a tutor, then please get in touch and we’ll help you find the right tutor to get results.You can either email us, complete our find a tutor form or call on 01625 531 360.
