Sherpa uses it's own safe online classroom, the interactive whiteboard. Students can message tutors through our platform, book slots for 1-1 private lessons and talk freely over video-chat.
Whilst in the lesson, our whiteboard has the capabilities to teach all subjects and can transform visually to cater to all your online learning needs, for example Maths, English, Music and Science.
Tutors and students have uninterrupted private lessons, just as they would in person, but also with the use of our technical study help tools and online resources.

You have come to the right place! Our tutors all have teaching experience and have been helping students smash their exams for many years. Simply follow these instructions:
Click on the ‘Find a Tutor’ button at the top of the page, this will take you to our range of friendly teachers. You can filter your results by subject and education level. Our most popular being IB, GCSE and A-Level tutors.
You can then message a tutor of your choice by viewing their profile and clicking ‘Get in Touch’. This sends them a direct message and from there you can have a free 20 minute introduction and arrange a time to book your online classes.

1-1 online private tutoring boosts a child’s confidence and allows them to tackle their challenges head on in a friendly environment. Tutoring has proven to help children pass their exams due to the specific study goals they can set with their tutor and the focus that comes with being the only one in the class. Moving tutoring to an online environment like Sherpa allows you to achieve your aims from home, connect with great tutors and use our online study resources.

With 100% focus from the tutor to the student 1-1 private tuition lessons are incredibly effective. Being guided through the syllabus at your own pace allows you to understand all topics and work through at your own pace. Giving you the best chance to get those A*s. It is a great idea to set target grades with your tutor. This gives you both something to work towards and at the end you will be able to see how much progress you have made.

Online tutoring is to work alongside a child’s school syllabus. Throughout a school term there are often various topics that are harder to understand or get brushed past quickly in the classroom. Whether it be an English literature text, a maths equation or exam technique, online tutoring is there to fill those gaps and keep brains active over the school holidays.

At Sherpa we only pick tutors with teaching experience, it is all very well being an extremely knowledgeable person but transferring that information to the student is most important. Our tutors have both teaching experience and extreme knowledge of their field. We personally interview each and every tutor who applies, and only around 1 in 8 tutors who apply make it onto the platform. The best combination to achieve A*s.

You betcha!
