    This is tutoring reimagined.

    Sophia is an intuitive on demand mobile app that connects tutors who love teaching with parents seeking high quality tuition. Gone are the old industry days of delays, disappointments, expensive 'middlemen', vying for jobs and monthly invoicing. We consider ourselves to be a disruptor of the private tuition industry as the first on demand mobile app in the UK and believe this to be a badge of honour.

    Safety is paramount at Sophia. All tutors are vetted against the Safer Recruitment in Education standards for Keeping Children safe in Education and are met face-to-face by our highly experienced Education Team, so that there are no strangers on the platform. We wouldn't put anyone on the platform that we wouldn't feel comfortable with tutoring our own children.

    Private Tuition you can trust. Sophia is delighted to be an industry leader in protecting all of our Sophia clients; students, parents and tutors. Every Sophia tutor working on the platform has a valid DBS certificate, verified references, and we are the first tutoring agency in the UK to ensure that every session booked via the Sophia App is covered by both £1million Professional Indemnity and £2million Public Liability Insurance.

    All Sophia tutors have been fully vetted and met in person by our experienced education team, this includes holding a valid DBS certificate and verified reference. This ensures that all tutors on our platform have passed our stringent verification and onboarding process and comply with our high expectations.

    Sophia Tutors are banned into our unique Tier system based on their qualifications and experience. Parents are able to select the tier option that best suits the learning needs of students.

    We regularly collect feedback to ensure you can book an outstanding and consistent tuition session - every time.

    The Sophia App is not quite ready to download yet. We expect the App to launch on iOS and Android towards the end of August 2019. We are currently inviting outstanding tutors to sign up to Sophia and begin the verification process. Parents interested in using Sophia can register with us via the links on our website so that we may keep you updated and let you know as soon as Sophia is ready.

    We'd love to hear from you if you have any questions.
