Our Tutors

As a tutoring agency, the core of what Athena does is find and train the best tutors possible across the Greater London area. Our success is dependent on us doing this above all else.


Smart, Passionate and Experienced

Our tutors know what it takes to succeed. However, that alone is not good enough. Each of our tutors also knows instinctively how to channel their knowledge appropriately for their student’s tuition- making the learning process fun, engaging and ultimately successful.


To maintain this edge, Athena Tuition provides further training and support to all of our tutors throughout their time with us, ensuring they keep up to date with the latest developments in their subject areas and exam syllabus changes in the common entrance examinations, the 11+ and 13+.

Our selection process

Tutors are naturally the heart of our company. A good tutor can be a life changing experience for a student, changing their view or attitude toward a subject or even the whole trajectory of their learning. Naturally therefore, we only accept the best people with the right attitude, focusing on providing tutors with experience to families who need it.


We also take careful consideration of the personality of each tutor to ensure that we make the best match possible for each individual student.

A few of our tutors

Below are listed a handful of our tutors with significant amounts of prior tutoring experience and whose services are a good example of the level of high level tutoring quality students would receive through Athena Tuition.

Charlie Baker ConvertImage

Charles (Specialist in English)

  • Graduated from Trinity College in BA English Literature
  • Eton College

In the last two years I have tutored multiple separate students through to places at Oxford university. I have had 12 students get A*’s at GCSE and 5 to A*/D1’s at A Level/Pre-U

I maintain an organised approach to what is a very demanding subject – I first help my students to master the whole text; then to develop the fluid writing style needed to take the top grades.

“We all remember the best teachers we had at school. They are the ones who broaden our horizons and make us realise there are so many possibilities for our futures. I relish the challenge of being that person who can help students of all abilities reach their full potential, and to share the fascination and enjoyment of the incredible universe around us which has driven my physics research for the last 10 years.”

Joan Iyiola private tutor for Athena Tuition

“Not everybody has an easy time with education. Or even enjoys it. As a tutor I believe that it is both crucial and possible to find an accessible way to achieve high results within our education system. Every student has an individual approach (or perhaps may not even know what theirs is yet!), and as a tutor my aim is to enhance their learning style and developing the skills that they already obtain.”

Omari private tutor for Athena Tuition

Omari (Specialist in English, Spanish and Common Entrance exams)

  • Graduated from Oxford in English and Spanish
  • Prepared students at 11+ for Westminster, St Paul’s Girls, KCS, Latymer, Emanuel and Harrodian, and at 13+ boys have won places at Eton, Harrow, Tonbridge and Radley


“As a tutor, I never forget to treat my students as individuals: in my lessons their unique talents will be just as important as their specific needs in helping them fulfil their potential and succeed. I’m lively, enthusiastic, highly organised and have over 6 years of tutoring and mentoring experience behind me.”

Heather private tutor for Athena Tuition

Heather (Specialist in Biology, Chemistry and Special Education Needs teaching)

  • Newnham college Cambridge graduate in biochemistry

“Success is born from determination and the right tools, namely education. Growing up in a deprived area with two disabled parents taught me how education can transform a future. As a tutor, I believe that learning is a gift. Working with students as individuals, allows them to unlock this gift and reach their potential while keeping a smile on their faces.”
