One Stop Tutors is owned and managed by Jacqui Cardani who is a full-time Biology A level and GCSE Science tutor
Jacqui moved to North Yorkshire in 1997 after completion of her PGCE and spent several years teaching, mainly at Huntington School in York. She also works as an examiner for AQA and lives in Knaresborough with her husband and two children, one of whom is in the 6th form at Ripon Grammar, and the other is about to start a Veterinary Medicine uni course. As a parent and tutor, Jacqui can see two perspectives, both of which influence the management of One Stop Tutors. She is also well aware of the current stresses within the education system and the impact that lockdowns and teacher-assessed grades have had on students.
It was by chance that the idea for One Stop Tutors came about. After tutoring her niece and seeing the benefits of one-to-one tuition first-hand, Jacqui set up as an independent tutor herself in the summer of 2014. Immediately taken aback by local demand, Jacqui was inundated by requests for ‘do you know a good tutor for Maths, English, Chemistry …’ Having worked in sales and the community as well as teaching, Jacqui knew lots of potential tutors and referred students locally. From here One Stop Tutors was born, providing a platform for other tutors to promote themselves without the cost of advertising, setting up a website or paying big commission fees from each lesson to an agency.
One Stop Tutors’ main objective is to provide excellent tutors with the reassurance that all academic and safety checks have been done already. We take an altruistic approach, charging only a small monthly or introductory fee to tutors so that our tutors feel valued, students get good value for money and it also allows us to take on only the very best local teachers and tutors. In return One Stop Tutors check enhanced DBS status, check academic references, interview tutors to ascertain suitability and most importantly we continue ongoing checks and receive feedback on individual tutors from students and parents. It also means that in circumstances where parents feel uncomfortable querying a tutor directly, they can ask a question via One Stop Tutors.
There is no extra cost to students for this service, but we do ask all students to be willing to provide feedback after a few lessons and testimonials where they feel it is appropriate.
