Why Purple Ruler?

Most of our tutors are from the top 10 universities in the UK who would not normally be available in every area of the country - but we can connect you with these elite teachers immediately.

We deliver focused, strategic lessons designed to reach and nurture individual pupil attainment. We don't teach what they already know, we enable them to achieve in areas they need help with.

Our students receive high-quality tuition from one consistent teacher with a proven track record over the course of 15 sessions that targets their specific difficulties.

What We Do

We teach every core subject, including Science, Mathematics and English, at every age level using a combination of customised and well-established international curricula, as well as other academic subjects.

Purple Ruler offers free demonstration lessons, 1:1 sessions for pupils where needed and every school we work with has its own project management team. 


School-led tutoring can be difficult to organise on a large scale given space and time constraints and the added administrative burden, but we take care of all of that.


We can also work in conjunction with schools leading their own tuition for the NTP and academic mentors.

  • University of Oxford - BA in English Language and Literature

  • Specialises in teaching English from KS1 through to GCSE

Sarah says: "I aim to develop my students' enthusiasm for English whilst improving the skills they need to pass any exams they may be faced with. My lessons encourage students to develop their own voice and to remain confident in their ability to answer questions they may initially find difficult."

What Clients Say


“The pupil to teacher ratio has been perfect and the tuition was finely tuned to the starting points and abilities of each group and is clearly focused on narrowing the gap. The Purple Ruler teachers have engaged the pupils magnificently and from the very first session built up a rapport with the pupils. The groups eagerly await each session and their enthusiasm for writing spills over when they return to class leaving other pupils wondering when they will access this resource!”
