Tutorial and education advisory services
Welcome to Hooton Tutors.
Thank you for visiting our website.
We are open for business and providing online tuition and catch-up lessons.
We are a family team, who have been successfully supporting learners since 2004. We have gained an excellent reputation as professionals who inspire students, provide educational tuition and offer advice for families
"Hooton Tutors provide a caring learning environment that has helped my sons in their studies. They not only guide and help, but also provide me with a great deal of feedback on their progress and key learning objectives. My sons report that their tutor is friendly, helpful and approachable."
Who are we?
We are all CRB cleared, fully qualified to Honours Degree level and beyond and have many years of experience teaching successfully in schools.
As professionals, we recognise the need to keep our own skills sharp. We are therefore committed to our own continuous professional development, regularly attend courses and keep abreast of research in the areas of education and psychology.
Why choose us?
Each lesson is conducted on a one-to-one basis. We are all fully qualified professionals with many years’ experience in schools. We have a proven track record in helping our students to meet or exceed academic targets and raise confidence in their own abilities.
We believe that teachers should be inspirational. We aim to instill in each of our students a lifelong love of learning and to encourage them to view themselves as competent and successful learners.
Although each subject has its own skills and knowledge we recognise that an essential aspect of learning is the student’s confidence in his or her own abilities.
"Tuition is very good and well structured. We enjoy feedback and assessments. C. is always keen to go to her lesson and enjoys the way things are explained to her."

- Candice Flanagan Harris - Val & Ben are fantastic! They tutored my son for this 11+ and St Anselm's entrance exam which he has recently passed, both with a very high score. They are both very calm and friendly, my son thoroughly enjoyed his sessions. I would highly recommend Hooton Tutors, they really understand the best approach for the individual child's needs. Thank you both so much for all your hard work we really do appreciate it.
- Helen Kini - Both our boys have been tutored at Hooton Tutors one by Val and one with Ben over the last few years. We really appreciated their thorough assessments, guidance and support throughout the process. It resulted in both our boys achieving their goal of completing the 11+. Both boys learnt a lot during their tutor sessions especially around test technique and the work set filled in gaps of learning allowing them to feel more confident generally. Val and Ben will advise you whether your child will thrive at a Grammar school and not just pass the 11+ which I believe is very important. Thank you both very much.

- Sarra Kennerly - My son attended lessons with Ben in preparation for the 11 plus exam. Over the 2 year period Ben was absolutely brilliant. Patient, invested, knowledgeable and a really lovely person. Even over difficult lockdowns he ensured that Mylo had regular FaceTime lessons, and always kept us up to date on his progress and areas that needed work or improvement. Mylo’s love of maths really developed under Bens tuition and his school teachers have commented on how advanced he is. Mylo recently passed the 11 plus exam with a really great score. We really couldn’t recommend Ben, and Hooton tutors highly enough. Thank you Ben from the Kennerley family!
