A Bit More About Us

We are fully qualified primary teacher with a broad range of experience in education.  My Primary Tutor is based in the Highlands of Scotland, offering tuition for pupils working at primary level in maths, reading, spelling and writing.  This support is delivered online in small groups and 1 to 1.   Our online sessions are interactive and create a supportive learning environment, from the comfort of your own home.  Online sessions are especially great for homeschooling support and for those living in more remote areas of the country.


At My Primary Tutor we begin with an initial assessment to help identify any gaps in learning.  Pupils attend weekly sessions which are planned around your child's needs.  Our experienced primary tutors design interactive, engaging lessons which help to improve your child's ability and increase their confidence. After each session, our primary tutors give comprehensive feedback,  with photos and links to online follow-up activities.  If you would like support for your child, please get in touch to find our more.
