Welcome to Up Your Grade Tutors…

My desire is to introduce your child to the best academic private tutors local to Harrogate. I am a science teacher of 8 years and know each of our subject tutors personally. With this experience you are guaranteed to secure an experienced educator. All our current tutors hold specialist teaching qualifications and have years of invaluable experience teaching in schools.

My dedicated team of private tutors have proved themselves to be excellent at motivating, confidence building and guiding their students to enjoy greater success. Simply registering to act as a tutor with Up Your Grade doesn’t automatically mean you will be suitable to receive offers through us!

I appreciate that finding the right person to work with your child through an online tutor search can be overwhelming and unpredictable. Currently the tutor industry is completely unregulated; meaning anyone can act as a tutor. Our service eliminates any risk in quality and we can reassure you only the most capable, motivating and suitably qualified teachers and tutors receive offers of work through us.

To reassure you of the confidence I have in all our tutors; all our first lessons are 100% Guaranteed. If you are not happy in any way; we will pay for another session with a different tutor – no questions asked!

That is my promise to you,

Andy Gardner, Biology BSc, PGCE Science
