Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Athena Tuition’s mission is to enable as many people as possible to benefit from the personalised learning experience of a tutor. We are dedicated to serving the whole of Greater London from our base in Hampstead.


Our society still runs its education system in the Victorian mould of 30 children in a classroom with one teacher and one learning plan. A key drawback of this system is that not one child in a class has their learning experience tailored directly to their needs, all of them having to, instead,  accept a “one size fits all” approach.


Tutors allow us to improve on this model by providing students with that personalised time, focusing on the aspects of a subject that they find particularly difficult or challenging, complementing the formal education they receive.


We fully appreciate that every student has their own way of learning. Nevertheless, the examinations they have to pass are the same.


We maintain that education is about more than just passing exams – it’s about establishing a framework for learning that will last a lifetime. We, therefore, ensure that we match each student with a tutor suited to your exact specifications, in order to maximise the benefit of the tuition sessions. We look carefully at a student’s interests and hobbies, and provide a tutor that we think is the best match to get them through the exams they face with maximum success, and to prepare them for life to come.


Athena Minds extends our philosophy of one-to-one, targeted assistance beyond that of pure academia, to the realm of mental health.
