Extra details

Better Tuition is an independent tuition centre, based in the heart of Urmston. Run by husband and wife, Paul Syrett and Christine McLaughlin, we have been offering the highest standards of tuition since 2008.  Children attend once a week for sessions lasting 1 hour and 15 minutes.

At Better Tuition, every child is assessed and taught individually within a small group. Our positive approach will boost your child's confidence and bring out the love of learning which we believe is inherent in every child. We achieve excellent results in SATs, GCSEs and entrance exams. Each face-to-face lesson costs £28.

Better Tuition's qualified teachers work with children face-to-face in a ratio of 1:4 or 1:5. This provides the right mix of support alongside the opportunity to practice new concepts independently. This balance is highly effective in developing your child's confidence and self-belief. 

Since the first lockdown, we have also offered one-hour group tuition sessions online. These lessons cost £22.

Young people feel empowered at Better Tuition. Within a few weeks, their confidence soars in line with their scores in school.  We have helped many hundreds of children achieve and succeed in school and beyond. We offer tuition in maths, English, science and entrance exam preparation for Trafford's grammar school system.

We offer a free assessment or free trial lesson to families who would like to find out more. To find out more about booking your FREE assessment, please call Paul or Christine now on 0161 748 3912.
