Meet The Tutors

Because our tutors are in high demand, we do not make all profiles and individual rates publicly available. Some of our current tutors have made their credentials partially viewable below as examples of the profiles we create. Please make an enquiry and we will match you with any appropriate tutors and send you their full profiles for you to make your choice (see “How it Works” for more information).

Why Choose Canis Major?

Canis Major is almost unique amongst tutoring services in that we only employ tutors who have degrees from Oxford or Cambridge and who have a proven track record of helping students excel and achieve at the highest levels. Many of our tutors have received awards and scholarships in their field and all have demonstrated excellence in tutoring and coaching students for a wide range of exams.

Some of our tutors have also made significant contributions to the world of sports and the arts; current tutors include a blades-winning Oxford rower and an internationally performed playwright.

One of the main struggles for providers of tuition is regulating the quality of tuition provided. Many large tutoring websites simply do not have the resources to guarantee an elite service. Furthermore, almost anyone can sign up to these sites and background checks rarely include an interview.

At Canis Major, we scout out those individuals who have already demonstrated an exceptional talent for tutoring, and whom we have interviewed to ensure the highest standards of professionalism and care.
