We initially began offering online lessons in response to Coronavirus-related lockdowns. However, it soon became apparent with advances in technologies (faster WiFi, new video calling software, and whiteboard software) that online lessons could be just as beneficial as in-person lessons. This is exemplified by recent parent and tutor feedback. While we ensure that set up is straightforward, should you encounter any difficulties we can arrange a video call where we will walk you through all of the steps.

I was a bit concerned about tutoring online but it has been brilliant. The virtual whiteboard that’s used makes it easy to see what’s going on so really helps understanding. Not having any travelling time to and from the tutor makes it so much more efficient. Plus the amount of resources you can access from the tutor is excellent. Really cannot fault it.

My son has Rosie as his Higher English tutor. Highly recommend. English is not his favourite subject and she has really helped to engage him. He definitely feels the benefit of the sessions. The online system works perfectly and would 100% recommend.

I have found the online lessons with Aidan really helpful. The online whiteboard and the tablet work great for Maths and I always feel much more confident on the topic after my lessons.  I like that there’s no travelling involved and I can do lessons from my room.

Maria Thompson (Student)

Maria has Aidan as a Maths tutor

My daughter was hesitant to try online tutoring initially, but now I don’t think she would go back to in person! The system Caledonia Tutors has in place works seamlessly. My daughter says she gets more work done in lessons now than she used to as well. It also makes planning and rescheduling lessons far more convenient and straightforward. I cannot recommend it enough, and my advice would be to anyone thinking of starting to give it a try!

Rachel Stewart (Parent)

Rachel's daughter has Guin as an English tutor

I think online lessons work extremely well for those students who have enough self-discipline to pay attention. Then I can get everything across just as well if not better than in person lessons. Also getting an iPad and stylus really helped, now I think I find it more efficient than in-person lessons.

Biology and Chemistry Tutor

After each initial session, I genuinely believe the online whiteboard application creates the same collaborative feeling as in-person tutoring. Also, I’ve found a couple of my tutees have had their lessons quite spaced (for example going a whole week without an actual maths lesson) so I think they’ve found it beneficial to have something more consistent like tutoring in place to ensure they keep on top of their knowledge

Jack Charters (BSc Maths with Biology)

Biology and Maths Tutor

I moved to online teaching back in March and over the last several months have come to genuinely prefer it to in-person lessons. It gives both myself and my student a more flexible timetable without restricting any of our normal lesson content. I have also found that it is the superior medium for more self-conscious or unconfident students and can encourage more regular and open communication between the student and the tutor. For History and English the contents of my lessons are largely unchanged: we review set work and discuss improvements and strategies. However, when I set short work during the lesson it gives the student the illusion of privacy while they work. I find it removes a lot of the pressure to perform that comes for a student with in-person lessons and helps to build confidence.

My daughter (S2) had a great experience of maths tutoring with Caledonia Tutors. Anisha was exactly what we'd hope for in a tutor. My daughter definitely felt it helped her exam performance. Taking a break but would use again.

Excellent tutoring service which was tailored to my son’s individual requirements. Communication was excellent and everything about the service was very slick from start to finish including the clear payment process. The improvement in my son’s grades was remarkable. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Tutoring was very good
I found the tutoring to be of high quality and my son really engaged well with Allen which is unusual! My son was undertaking maths NAT 5 and I will give better placed to give a review when he gets his grade. If he passes I will be very impressed!

I am so happy I discovered Caledonia Tutors. I live in a rural area in the Highlands and was finding it hard to find a tutor for my son locally. After searching online I came across Caledonia Tutors - and I haven't looked back! I answered a few thorough questions to help them find the best tutor to suit my son's needs. Jessie has been tutoring my son in Higher Physics for the past few months and I can't speak highly enough of her. Jessie's knowledge, enthusiasm and love of her subject shines through, and she has not only helped my son with his learning of the subject but has infected him with her passion for it too - just when his was starting to wane under the pressure of looming exams! Jessie is friendly and approachable yet professional and focussed, and I would not hesitate to recommend her. Jessie: thank you - we will miss you when this is all over!
For anybody unsure about the online aspect of tutoring I would say that our young people are very familiar with using digital technology for their lessons already - many, like my son, are issued tablets in high school, and most have had experience of online learning during the Covid lockdowns. Taking the travelling aspect out of the tutoring equation also helps, not to mention that online we have access to a larger pool of appropriate and suitable tutors rather than just settling for whoever is available locally.
Thanks to Caledonia Tutors and Jessie, my son is now much happier with his understanding of Physics and is feeling much more confident about his upcoming Higher exam.

Great, patient maths tutor
Anna was a great support for my daughter who was studying for Maths Higher exam. She was very patient and worked well with my daugther. It was a bonus that she was also available to answer those small silly questions every once in awhile, when not in a session.

Adian of Caledonia Tutors was very easy and professional to work with. Nice to see a young company, full of young students and professionals working with the next generation. Thank you.

Eve is excellent
Eve started tutoring my son in Chemistry recently and I cannot believe how quickly he has grown in confidence. Covid and lockfowns had taken a toll but with Eve's excellent teaching he is now really well prepared and feeling confident about his exam this week. She is calm, encouraging and engaging and i would have no hesitation in recommending Eve
