Private Maths Tutor Wigan


Reviewed Credible Maths Tutors. No-one does it like we do!



Are you tired of trawling the net through the thousands of maths tutors available?

Are you worried they might not be quite who they seem, or even if they're actually a qualified teacher?

"Your child deserves the best possible start in life."

I’m a parent just like you and I wouldn’t want my child to have anything less than the best.

That’s why I personally scrutinise all new tutor applications at my company – and reject 8 out of 10 candidates, because they don’t meet the highest standards I've set.

For many national tuition companies, this is an automated process - no-one even LOOKS at the applications!

But I know teaching, I know education and I know children. I was a full-time primary school teacher for over 20 years. I also taught maths for Year 6 then through to GCSE level privately, so I KNOW what works, and the kind of teacher that makes it work.

So I'm the ideal person to help you find the right tutor for your child – from over 100 professional teachers in the North West.

More than 600 parents in the area have trusted me to provide over 18,700 hours of private tuition in the last 8 years – and I’d love to help you too.

I take the stress and uncertainty out of tutor search!

What makes my company, Ash Tutors, COMPLETELY different to all the rest? 

Right now, you're in research mode. You know the problem exists and that your child probably would benefit from some one to one tuition with a dedicated and professional teacher.

So you're thinking, "I need to find out about this. How much is it? Where do I start? How do I pick a tutor from the thousands online? Can I trust them? What happens if I need to cancel, do I still have to pay? Will it work? How long will it take? How can I ensure they'll put maximum effort into it? Is this tutor credible? Do they need to be insured? How do I know if they're qualified? Should I ask for a DBS? How do I know they haven't been sacked from a school? What exactly will they do for the money? What happens during holiday periods?..." I bet I've thought of a few questions you haven't, and I bet you're thinking of some that I haven't!


So, we've established you're presently researching things - and highly unlikely yet to be in a position to buy, and that's fine, it's what I'd expect from a Google ad! So I want to convince you that I'm a genuine, honest and trustworthy business owner (and teacher!) who knows exactly how to solve your problem.


Any money spent on a private tutor is wasted money if it doesn’t actually make any difference! There are plenty of cheap alternatives - who will happily rock up at your house with unplanned lessons, no learning goals, little motivation and no sense of being monitored.

(My son's tutor) has been a fantastic inspiration to (my son) and totally changed his attitude to doing maths. I am very grateful for all (the tutor's) help, encouragement and support over the past year and will definitely continue to promote Ash Tutors. (My daughter) has also improved dramatically with her English. Again (the tutor) has really worked hard with her. She has now moved into the top set and is much more confident, enjoying her English lessons with a positive attitude." Mrs Thomason, Wigan



  1. Agreeing with client and tutor specific, written LEARNING GOALS as to what you’re specifically hoping to achieve by using a tutor for your child.
  2. Ensuring that all parties are focused on the learning goals  (in a gentle low-pressure, low stress way!). Lesson focus will be on learning in a fun way - but clarity of purpose must be maintained by all parties to ensure those goals are reached.
  3. Ensuring that all lessons are planned and specifically tailored to your child’s needs.
  4. Ensuring that feedback is given every lesson, to keep the you informed and the child on track for success. This enables parents to continue the learning or consolidate it between lessons.
  5. Ensuring parents and tutors are aware of the tutor's roles and expectations by providing a WRITTEN DOCUMENT prior to lesson commencement.
  6. Ensuring there are pre assessments - shared with you, and then regular updates on these assessments so you know the rate and amount of progress.
  7. Ensuring the monitoring of tutors by continual contact with the parents.
  8. Offering continual email support that is age-specific to your child, to involve the whole family in the learning process.
  9. You can stop tuition at ANY point - only 1 week’s notice needed.
  10. 1 to 1 works for anyone - the key questions is how long will it take? If it’s taking too long you can stop tuition, or try a change of tutor.
  11. There are many things wrong with the current educational system. However, many of the features of our service are taken directly from it. Why? Because it works. There is a difference though. Ours is a ‘gentle’ clarity of purpose, rather than a stick to beat people with!

The Truth About Most Other Tutoring Agencies

During this research phase, you will have seen lots of other private tuition companies online.

But did you know many of these are simply automated directories?

They are little more than shop windows that put tutors in front of parents – with no checks, no advice, no follow-up monitoring, no continual added value, no recourse if things go wrong, no ANYTHING!

At Ash Tutors, I do so much more.

"Thanks Geoff, your service has been outstanding, more companies could do with some of the drive and enthusiasm that you have!" Kay Livingstone April 2016


Your child could be having their first Maths lesson in just a few days. With Ash Tutors, you’re not tied into any sort of contract – you can stop tuition at any time.
