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.

Caitlin (English) and Cara (business) were an excellent help for my son’s highers. Online tutoring was easy to organise and tutors responsive to contacts.

Gracie has helped my son very effectively in English. My son had been put in the wrong set at school …the tutor helped us with understanding of his ability and school moved him up a set. Thank goodness for Gracie!! She patiently listens and explains concepts well on his level … they have fun , learn effectively and get on really well in the Nat 5 online lessons. She has quite a fun dynamic style of teaching so her pupil feels more involved. Fingers crossed he keeps up the new level of interest… Thanks for helping us Gracie. You are a talented tutor.

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.

Will’s positive, fun and relaxed approach made a huge difference to our daughters confidence. He quickly developed rapport despite tutoring online and has really helped increase her skills and her confidence. Thank you!

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.

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'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.

Eszter Sojtory (BSc Biomedical Sciences)

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.

Hello - just wanted to let you know that Abbie sat her exam last week - she was pleased with what she did and fingers crossed she gets the result she hopes for. Abbie and I just wanted to thank you for all your time, patience and coaching that undoubtedly helped her do her best in the exam today. We hope you have an amazing summer and we will be in contact about the next stage later in the year.

Excellent Tutors
We have been using Caledonian Tutors for a few years now and they are always top quality. My daughter also did one of the headstart courses for Higher Biology last summer. This was an excellent way to get ahead as she basically covered the first few months of the higher course in a few weeks and Biology is now one of my daughter's top subjects. Shona delivered the biology headstart (and we kept her as a weekly tutor) and she is excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend these headstart courses and tutoring in general.

Highly recommend for Maths tutors
Aidan responded very quickly to my initial query and set up both our daughters with Maths tutors within a few days.
Our daughters had Callum Macauley for Higher Apps of Maths and Jack McDermott for Nat 4 Maths support, and we can highly recommend both. Both girls have improved their understanding and now have more confidence in their ability.

Clare - French Tutor
My daughter was tutored by Clare in preparation for her French Higher. Clare was fantastic and built up my daughter's confidence and helped her really understand French in all aspects of the course. She provided relevant resources and exam based preparation. Clare was kind, organised and really supported her learning. Thank you and we will be in touch in August when the results come out!!

Thanks for the help
My daughter has had the privilege of having Chloe as an English Higher Tutor through Caledonia, Darcy’s confidence has increased ten fold since her tutoring sessions and I’m confident Darcy will get the results she needs from the exam. Chloe is a lovely girl, with a wealth of knowledge to share & help others.

Fareha - Excellent Maths Tutor
My daughter has been receiving maths tutoring from Fareha since September last year. The improvement seen with her prelim grades was better than l had anticipated. Fareha takes time to explain certain aspects that my daughter is not sure of and they go over classwork that hasn’t been explained enough in school lessons until my daughter is comfortable. Fareha is an asset and the whole tutoring experience has been great from start to finish, she keeps me up to date on progress which is also great as a parent. Thank you for all of your help and whoever receives your help next is a lucky student.
