The Tutoring Heroes Story
The Tutoring Heroes story began with its Founder, Alan, who dreamed of creating a tutoring service that not only boosts academic performance, but sparks the lifelong love of learning he believes is every person’s right.
I started teaching because I wanted to show children that learning IS cool. Everyone loves to learn. We only differ in what we prefer to learn and how we learn best – which is something traditional tutoring often fails to accommodate
– Alan, Founder
Alan has taught for over 10 years in Jersey and London, and has been judged as delivering “outstanding” lessons in every Ofsted inspection during that time. Like every Tutoring Heroes tutor, he believes that learning should inspire students and that building a child’s confidence is the best way to help them succeed in the classroom.

1-on-1 online tutoring
Tutoring Heroes started out offering after-school 3-on-1 tutoring sessions in Jersey and Guernsey. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, all in-person sessions were suspended.
As consistency is key to progression, the decision was made to begin offering lessons online instead. This has turned out to be a fantastic move for the students, who now benefit from 1-on-1 sessions with their tutor and lessons which are tailored to their specific learning needs. The move to online tutoring was also a popular decision with parents, who no longer have to cart their children off to in-person tutoring sessions!
Since the move to online tutoring, Tutoring Heroes has been able to support more than 800 students across Jersey and Guernsey and continues to go from strength to strength. The families we work with are incredibly important to us, and we’re proud to be loved by parents and learners alike.
