The Almost Essential Community: Lucy, The Tutor Finder

We all are on the lookout for good tutors. Lucy started tutoring in 1991 and set up her own well-respected tutor agency in 2000. Since then she has accumulated a wealth of experience in the sector and has over 200 of the countries leading tutors on her books. In the first in a series of posts, we look at the people behind the brands Almost Essential recommends. Here is our quick Q&A with Lucy the tutor finder!

One word to describe yourself?

The last music you listened to?
My son playing his Grade 1 guitar pieces!

Your favourite restaurant?
Le Cafe du Marche in Spitalfields

The last book you read?
Notes on a Nervous Planet by Matt Haig

A motto you try to live by?
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain

Why did you start your business?
I wanted to offer more support to both clients and tutors than other agencies were doing. We specialise in the introduction of private tutors and we match tutors to students on a 1-to-1 basis. My aim has always been creating and fostering excellent relationships between student and tutor.

Looking for the perfect tutor for your son or daughter? Lucy’s tutor agency is not charging their normal registration or introduction Fees (normally £45 and £25) until 31 July 2020. You can find our more and contact Lucy’s team by visiting their profile on Almost Essential here.
