Private Tutors in London

Welcome to Knowledge Seekers.
We specialise in providing bespoke private tuition for children from reception class to A-level, throughout London.

We believe that one to one and small group tuition delivered by passionate, inspiring and creative professionals is the most effective way of building a child’s self-confidence, passion for learning, and independence of thinking and we pride ourselves on our warm, personal approach to education.

Our dedicated team of experienced, professional tutors have been hand-selected through our thorough screening, interview and teaching observation process, and are then trained in our unique, holistic approach, which is designed to allow your child to reconnect with their innate curiosity and natural love of learning.

Our business continues to thrive on word of mouth recommendations and we look forward to transforming your child’s learning experience and empowering them to fulfil their potential, both in and beyond the classroom.


Should you want to stop our tutoring for any reason, we will send a full refund for all the unused hours of the pre-paid block, returned to your nominated bank account within 3 working days, no questions asked. There will be no deduction for administration.

My daughter's relationship with her tutor is wonderful. She sees her as much more than a teacher and wants tutorials for life!...her confidence in maths and English has grown, which was very useful when it came to the 7+ exams for JAPS and Alleyn's. She was offered a place at both, so is now in a positive position where we are spoilt for choice. She had a session the day before the interview to coach her on interview techniques.

Blessing, East Dulwich

We are absolutely delighted with the tuition our son has received. Nicholas loved his hourly sessions with his tutors who were young, enthusiastic and made learning fun for him. As a result he did very well in his exams and we cannot be more grateful for the fantastic work that has been done to mentally and academically prepare him. We highly recommend Knowledge Seekers as they deliver what they promise and tailor their lessons to suit individuals' needs.

Britta, Balham

I cannot rate Knowledge Seekers highly enough. The level of one to one tuition provided was first class and the dedication shown was impressive. Not only did Knowledge Seekers tutor our son to the required academic standard but he was also coached to have the confidence required to succeed in a competitive environment. He was indeed offered a place at his preferred school and we will definitely use them again for subsequent children! A big thank you.

Tonie, Surrey Quays

Our tutor is a natural. Genuinely interested in teaching kids, she got my 6 year old son excited about the material she introduced. His confidence soared as he was doing things he hadn't yet done in the classroom. He has been offered a place at Dulwich College. I am grateful to our tutor for her diligence, thoroughness and the interest she brought to the sessions. I would recommend her highly.

Kirsten, Dulwich

Our daughter's tutor was fantastic at making the sessions fun as well as highly educational. She showed excellent understanding of what was required for success at 7+ and got our daughter enthused about learning as well as developing her abilities and building her confidence for the assessments. We were offered places at all the schools we applied for and our daughter is starting at JAPS in September. We have been delighted with Knowledge Seekers and would recommend them wholeheartedly!

Alex, East Dulwich

My daughter gets on really well with her tutor and likes her style, she looks forward to the tutorials and they just get on with it; she helps my daughter to be more efficient with her studies. As a parent, I love your service as a whole because not only do I see the progress that my daughter is making, I also know I can pick up the phone to you for advice or further requests, this is the third year we have been working with you and you have always met our needs perfectly.

Michelle, Croydon

Our son was tutored in French and also for 7+ exams recently. We decided to enter him for the 7+ with only 8 weeks notice and our son sailed through the exams and was offered a place at the independent school of our choice. Our tutor built his confidence and helped him achieve much more than we could have thought possible in such a short period of time. He has thoroughly enjoyed all his sessions with her and I can't recommend her highly enough.

Sarah, East Dulwich

Our daughter literally runs up the road to meet her tutor each week. They have a really nice relationship and get on with the work really well. We feel that the initial aim of the tuition has been achieved, in that our daughter's confidence has definitely increased and we're happy to be continuing with tuition. One thing we weren't expecting was that she wrote a Christmas card for her tutor with 'I love Maths' inside it! We're now looking at putting her forward for independent school entrance exams.

Julie, Clapham

I like my tutor because she's fun and helps me to learn. The way we do lessons is sensitive; we work hard and concentrate so I learn a lot. At school my reading is getting better and better and I am starting to read chapter books.

Key Stage 1 English Student, East Dulwich

I just wanted to let you know how fantastic your tutor is and how well the relationship is going. She is a very caring and imaginative tutor and our 5 year old daughter loves the sessions and has made very good progress in all areas, including exam technique. Thank you so much for setting us up with her.

Andy, East Dulwich

My experience of working both with Alexandra and our individual tutor has been nothing short of impressive. Alexandra takes great pride in her business ensuring that parents have a consultative approach to their child's learning. Learning styles and needs are identified by Alexandra's consultation and assessment, ensuring that ample time is spent with the child and parent.

Mahta, Borough

We have been absolutely delighted with our daughter's tutor. Even though our daughter was only 5 when we started tuition, she is able to pitch the lessons just right for her. She has developed a great relationship with our daughter and has found a way of getting the very best out of her and inspiring her to try out new things, especially in creative writing. Her confidence has grown enormously and she feels able to face the challenge of a new school in September.

Emily, East Dulwich

Our tutor really helped my daughter with tailored lessons that made her much more confident and happy. As a result my daughter had good advancement in a short period of time because of the focus on her individual and specific needs.

Giselle, Dulwich Village

We are delighted with our tutor. She is patient, very pleasant and very responsive to my daughter, who sometimes likes to sing her answers and move around while she is learning. The tutor is very creative in her teaching style, and as long as my daughter is learning she doesn't mind how it happens. She has an even handed approach which works very well. Her confidence in maths has just leapt, she is doing consistently well in her grades now and is very focused and keen.

Lolita, East Dulwich

Our tutor has given my child a lot of confidence to progress with his maths. My son really enjoyed working with him and saw him very much as a role model. I could see that he was highly motivated to do his best in all his work as a result. I believe Knowledge Seekers tutors excel in giving students a wide variety of techniques and instilling in them the confidence to succeed in their exams.

Vicky, East Dulwich

Since starting work with Osa, my daughter has shown a true passion for learning once again. Osa offers a teaching style that suits my daughter's age and concentration span. Whilst focusing on areas of weakness; variety, the National Curriculum and fun are all elements included in Osa's teaching. I would highly recommend working with KS to enhance your child's learning and love of learning!

Mahta, Borough

We are delighted with the tutoring our son received. We were looking for supportive, informal tutoring, a slow burn - in addition to school work and parental led homework. We wanted an informative, relaxed environment, which allowed questions to be asked and educational inconsistencies to be ironed out. We are delighted to report our son received offers from all of the schools to which we applied. I am more than happy to recommend Knowledge Seekers.

Kirsty, West Norwood

Tutoring really boosted my daughter's confidence and she found the structured approaches to tackling problems very useful. She received a 50% scholarship to St Dunstan's, a scholarship at JAGS and was offered a place at City London School for Girls but decided to take a place at Alleyn's. We're really pleased with the results and we are now having our younger son tutored by Knowledge Seekers for his 11+ exams.

Paul, East Dulwich

We're so very grateful for all your work with our daughter. Her result was fabulous and we're so proud of her. It's great that you've given her so much more confidence and have helped her to organise her thoughts and organise the material, so all credit not only to her but also to you.

Parent of year 6 student, Dulwich Village

Our tutor has shown great empathy and created a fantastic bond with my granddaughter. She is so caring, patient and understanding...My granddaughter has benefited a great deal from the tuition, improving a grade in her reading level within 10 weeks and the school teacher has commented on her increase in confidence. We are looking forward to continuing the lessons next term.

Catherine, Catford

Our daughter was offered a place at JAGS, Sydenham high school for girls, Streatham and Clapham high, Dunraven as well as Graveny (she was in the top 5% of over 2500 applicants at Graveny). We have accepted a place at JAGS and she is looking forward to starting her new life there in September...You have helped our daughter so much in the lead up to her entrance exams and gave her the confidence to shine and gain entry to a fantastic school.

Dee, Dulwich

Knowledge Seekers have provided an excellent tutor for my daughter, who has made a great improvement and has moved up in her maths group to the middle group. I am so pleased and very happy with our tutor and I think my daughter would really miss her because she is a very easy person to get on with and my daughter really looks forward to her maths tuition.

Mrs Gill, Vauxhall

This is the second of my children that have been working with Knowledge Seekers. My daughter has really improved her ability to work under time pressure and increased her confidence in tackling entrance tests. She scored very highly, getting 140/140 on the grammar school tests. She was offered places at both JAGS and Alleyn's so she's going to start at Alleyn's this year.

Paul, East Dulwich

It was always a pleasure to see our tutor who is, according to my son, a very good teacher. She is calm, very good natured and responded well to him. I forgot to tell her that in his Year 8 assembly last week he was singled out as being the only child of the entire year group who was either exceeding or on ALL his targets. I'm sure that achievement was in no small part thanks to her steady efforts.

Emma, Dulwich Village

We are very happy with Knowledge Seekers. Our daughter is very hard working but her results weren't always showing through and this affected her confidence. She enjoys her time with her tutor and always gets a lot out of it. It is her confidence that has really improved, as have her results. With her tutor's help, she is now more resilient and has learnt techniques to help her look at where she went wrong and deal confidently with things.

Charles, Dulwich Village

Our tutor is outstanding. She is very committed, coming over for a session at short notice to help my daughter before an unexpected exam ... She has made a substantial, fundamental difference to the way my daughter approaches maths. She is much more confident. In the hard sense she had a very good test result last term- up in the 70s, which is a massive achievement for her. She has achieved far, far in excess of what I expected from a tutor.

Ceri, Gypsy Hill

I'm really pleased. My son's English has improved several fold. Since starting tuition his school grade has steadily gone up and continues to do so. The tutor talks to him about problems in school, gives him strategies to deal with problems, and has really increased his confidence. They've also helped him with his articulation and expression of ideas and are very approachable and friendly. I've already recommended them to someone.

Jocelyn - East Dulwich

I enjoy my tutorials because they are not all about tests; you get to choose what you want to study so there is variety. I like the fact that if there is something that I don't understand at school then I can get more attention from my tutor.

Key Stage 3 English and Science Student, Dulwich Village

When Rachael started with Knowledge Seekers for French, Maths and English tuition she lacked confidence in these areas and her target grade was C. The tutors were very good, not only in their subject knowledge but also in their teaching manner. As a result Rachael achieved an A grade in her Maths and English and an A* for her French GCSE. Fantastic results, which would not have been possible without the tuition received from Knowledge Seekers.

Angela, Nunhead

I am absolutely delighted with the GCSE tutor you provided for my son, he is very upbeat and friendly and they get through the work very quickly together. My son has a plan for the rest of the year and is coming on very nicely. I have to say he is helping my son enormously, in fact I think he is the perfect person for him. Thank you, I am looking forward to him achieving great things.

Martina, Hackney

Your tutor has been absolutely fantastic with our daughter. She is just such a gentle, lovely lady and she has built our daughter's confidence so much. It was really wonderful to see the tutor break down the work for her and see them work together. We are awaiting the exam results and my daughter is confident that they went really well. The tutor is absolutely great and I wouldn't hesitate to ask for her help and support again.

Selina-Jane, Charlton

I'm really pleased with my daughter's tuition. She enjoys it and finds it very informative. It helped her to raise her grade in History from a D over a short period of time. With her tutor's help she was able to get an A.

Rachel, Denmark Hill

My tutor has really helped me to become more confident with my sciences. She has helped me organise what I already know so that I can answer exam questions better. She also makes things interesting by connecting them to real life examples. I feel much less anxious about doing my exams now. Thank you so much!

GCSE student, Brockley

Knowledge Seekers have provided my children with the tools they needed to enhance their performance at school. Recently my daughter was due to take three GCSE science modules but she wasn't feeling very confident. After a few sessions with her science tutor, she took her modules and got one A* and two A's. We highly recommend Knowledge Seekers to anyone who is looking for professional and dedicated tutors for their children.

Jasmine, Wandsworth

Please extend our thanks to the tutor for doing such a good job, both the girls thoroughly enjoyed their sessions and feel confident about the upcoming exams. We will definitely be back in touch in September for A-level tuition!

Devika, Thornton Heath

We really appreciate the time our tutor spends with our daughter and have seen a big improvement in her English. Before tuition, she refused to speak English in front of the family, and was very quiet with her friends. She would also never speak up in a group or in public. Thanks to Knowledge Seekers she has grown in confidence, and even asked a question to a complete stranger in the bank recently, which she would never have done before.

Nancy, East Dulwich

Knowledge Seekers took on the tutoring of our son (15) in French at short notice to prepare him for his GCSE orals. Over the course of several hour long tutorials the tutor made a notable improvement both in his spoken French and in his self confidence about the subject as a whole. His tutor is a charming young woman who impressed both our son and my wife and I with her diligence and skills as a tutor.

James, Dulwich Village

I have found my tutor effective and easy to work with. As a result of her tuition I have made fast progress in English, which I had initially struggled in. In four months of tuition I have improved my grades from grades D and E to grades A and B and this has greatly helped in my other subjects as well.

GCSE English Student, East Dulwich

When first attending my tutor sessions, I immediately noticed my improvement in my maths. I was predicted a B but I came out with a grade A which was extremely surprising because throughout my childhood I struggled a lot with Maths but after attending the sessions I felt a lot more comfortable with the subject, she gave me confidence. One to one sessions with my tutor, an experienced teacher helped me a lot, and I am extremely grateful for her help.

GCSE Maths and Science Student, East Dulwich

I must thank you for your assistance you gave my daughter in getting a grade A in Maths GCSE recently. Prior to your to tuition she was at grade C level with a hope of getting a grade B. I believe that your tuition lessons in the weeks leading up to her exam had a significant impact on her final grade.

Ken, East Dulwich

Thank you very much for all your support and please give my thanks to your tutor for her tuition. My daughter is feeling much more confident and as a result is much more motivated. She is very happy with all the support the tutor has provided her. She has followed all her advice, even to stick the mind maps on her bedroom wall!

Ana, Camberwell

I am very happy with my son's A-level biology tutor, he is doing an excellent job. His teaching techniques are varied and he involves my son throughout his lessons. They have since provided us with another excellent tutor for A-level economics. He really enjoys his tuition and his results have proved that I made the right decision to use Knowledge Seekers.

Carol, Streatham

I was struggling with an essay on jurisprudence and with it being my final year the pressure was on. I went along for some tutoring sessions and was very impressed, the subject matter became clearer and I was more confident with preparing a piece of work on jurisprudence. I would definitely recommend my tutor as she helped me attain the grade I was seeking to achieve.

Simi, Wimbledon

I really like to learn in these tutorials. I like doing spellings and I love the books my tutor buys for me. I love to write and do homework. I like it when my tutor makes me carrot juice. I like to learn with the card games.

Key Stage 1 English Student, Eltham

I like my tutor because she's fun and helps me to learn. The way we do lessons is sensitive; we work hard and concentrate so I learn a lot. At school my reading is getting better and better and I am starting to read chapter books.
