Mutual respect for our tutors

We understand the respectful environment that tutors enjoy and how this promotes quality tuition. Bright Heart values it tutors and treats them fairly and provides them with an incentive scheme to motivate them to achieve the highest standards of tuition for students.

When I was interviewed by Ryan and Simon at Bright Heart Education, I was struck by their passion and commitment – not only did they care about the students, they cared about the tutors. Their heart based approach set them apart from the others, they genuinely care and are very grounded in their ethos. Over the years, they have been consistently supportive and have always made the time to speak and communicate with both clients and tutors alike. A lot of thought and care goes into their process of finding the ‘perfect fit’ for the student and the tutor – it has been really successful and I have had so many wonderful fulfilling roles due to this.

Joining the team at Bright Heart Education in 2018 has been one of the best decisions I have ever made."

I am very happy being a tutor through Bright Heart. Simon and Ryan are thorough, transparent and dedicated - a cut above the rest. I feel respected as a tutor and that makes me want to go above and beyond."
