 Overview of Purple Ruler's Educational Approach:

At Purple Ruler, we believe that tutoring is done best when students are given a

  • consistent, experienced teacher

  • Who understands their goals and helps to provide bespoke guidance

  • To ensure that their level of academic progress aligns with the rest of the school.


Our work is bespoke to each student or group, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. There is no AI or recorded lesson. Everything is live instruction. 


We also believe in 0 wasted resources which is why:

  • The price of 6:1,  5:1,  4:1,  3:1,  2:1  lessons are the same as a 1:1 lesson. £29.17. This is the cost per hour, not per student. There are no additional fees of any kind. 

  • You can remove students whenever you want.

  • Add students whenever you want.

  • Combine groups to save cost 

  • Cancel groups to save costs. 


Who are we? 

Established in 2016 in The United Kingdom, we were launched when a computing company merged with a learning center with one single aim: " to make high-quality, bespoke learning support affordable for the public sector so that every child has an equal chance to succeed".  We now operate in 34 countries across 24 time zones, serving thousands of schools.

How do we lower the barrier to attending our lessons? 

1) Recorded video introductions let students, parents, and schools know who to expect. 

2) Incentives for attendance, covered by us.

How do we deliver AP in the context of EAL? 

The program for EAL is built around online immersion lessons. We focus on having students engage in active use of the language as well as writing and reading exercises with their students. 

The lessons in our curriculum apply to our Purple Ruler English Level (PR English Level) below. As long as students are making progress through our levels you are going to see advancements in the other related benchmarks you can see in the diagram. 

We focus on teaching interdisciplinary topics through English to make rapid gains in applying increased English skills across the curriculum. Our teachers must have their students actively speaking, reading, and writing for the lesson to pass our quality assurance standards.

Your teachers can use our submission forms to tell teachers how to shift their focus where necessary, allowing for even greater alignment with the curriculum.
