About Pinner Tuition Centre

At Pinner Tuition Centre we believe that all children can succeed if they are given the correct tuition and instruction. We encourage and nurture children so that they can grow in confidence and self esteem. Starting with an accurate assessment of each child, we identify their strengths and weaknesses and discuss any concerns either they or their parents have. We then work at each child’s pace to ensure that they have a firm foundation in each subject before we gradually increase the difficulty level to challenge and extend their knowledge.

Pinner Tuition Centre was set up in 2006 by Alison Owen to provide quality MathsEnglish and 11+ tuition to the children in and around Pinner, Harrow and Hillingdon.

Since then Alison and her team of qualified teachers have been providing individual tuition to children across the primary and secondary age ranges. We also teach Science for Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9, as well as Science GCSE.

Our qualified teachers

Our teachers are all fully qualified school teachers with many years teaching experience in state schools. Our team is made up of qualified Maths, English, Science and Primary specialists who are enthusiastic about their subjects and passionate about helping children to reach their full potential.

Teaching methods and learning resources

By using the same teaching methods used in schools we are able to reinforce children’s learning. We use a variety of resources to support learning, including worksheets, workbooks, educational software and text books. We use high quality resources in line with the National Curriculum to support children’s learning.

Ofsted registered Tuition Centre

We became an Ofsted Registered Centre in 2009 and have successfully passed all our inspections. Sending your child to an Ofsted Registered Provider gives you peace of mind knowing that:

Additionally, our Ofsted Registration means that we are able to accept Childcare Vouchers in payment for tuition fees. Families in receipt of Working Families Tax Credit can also claim back a substantial proportion of their fees.
