COVID UPDATE: With the increase of the spread of Covid-9 (Coronavirus) we are offering remote tuition - via Skype or other internet services - for those who are self-isolating or want to restrict any possibility of infection during lessons. All of our tutors are able to teach remotely, without visiting students' homes so anyone who needs tuition during this difficult period can get all the help they need

  • Recently my son felt he had lost confidence in his English coming up to exams, so Craig supplied a wonderful English tutor who, within a few sessions was able to give my son back his confidence and go into his exam feeling so much better

    Caroline, mother from Holland Park
  • I was recommended De Silva Tutors by a friend and I shall forever be grateful. I have been incredibly impressed by the professionalism, encouragement and enthusiasm shown by both the tutors and support staff and I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

    Lucy, mother from Fulham
  • I really looked forward to my tutoring sessions as they were really fun and the tutors helped me to understand topics that I hadn’t understood at school

    Maddie, GCSE student in West London
  • My two sons have had a fantastic experience with tutoring from De Silva tutors. It has given them a real love of learning, has kept them focussed and also allowed them a chance to really go into deeper understanding than they do in their (excellent, state) school.

    Malcolm, father in Bayswater
  • Craig De Silva is a one-man band but his results are symphonic. He goes to considerable lengths to match a child with the tutor best suited to him.

    The Good School's guide
  • A warm, efficient agency that seems to sprinkle magic dust on parental stress and anxiety and turn out kids as relaxed as founder Craig De Silva himself, reaching their potential not through pressure but through improved confidence and a love of learning.
