Our Tutors

We currently employ more than 70 tutors, who all possess excellent academic credentials and have a superb command of their subject matter.

They are mainly currently enrolled or recently graduated students recruited from the University of Hull, who are energetic, enthusiastic and up-to-date with the current demands of the national curriculum and various examination boards. They build a good rapport with pupils and are examples of how academic success can change lives.

All tutors have to complete essential training in Mentoring and Befriending techniques and how to be an effective tutor before they can begin tutoring for Toranj Tuition. We have formal accreditation for the delivery of Mentoring and Befriending training from the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).

Tutors are now eligible to complete an Employability Passport with Toranj Tuition, which demonstrates to their future employers the employability skills they have acquired while working with our organisation. Toranj Tuition’s Passport was validated by Humber LEP in 2019 and will be up for renewal in 2022.


Safeguarding and Child Protection

All of our tutors hold DBS checks and complete child protection and safeguarding courses, which are updated regularly. Our premises, based on the University of Hull campus, meet a high standard of health and safety regulations. We have a qualified first aider on the premises at all times.
