Developed in partnership with professional online UK qualified tutors, our lesson space combines video calling software, like Zoom, with our very own interactive, online whiteboard to not just match face-to-face, but surpass it.

You’ve come to the best online tutoring website for this one! Our qualified tutors have been helping students revise and pass their exams for years. To find an online tutor simply follow these instructions:
Sherpa uses its own safe online platform that comes with the advanced online classroom.
Online lessons are performed over our interactive whiteboard for private one-to-one
lessons. You can book these private lessons on our online messaging system which works
like similar message boards to Whatsapp, email and Facebook Messenger.
Once the online lesson is booked with a tutor, you’re able to talk freely over live video chat which operates similarly to Zoom and FaceTime with an online interactive whiteboard built in, which both the tutor and student can draw and write on as well as upload documents to. Our tutors can also use screen share functions to boost your child's academic potential whilst also having the ability to transfer them lesson notes!
After the online lesson is done the learning doesn’t stop there! Students can download and view all of their lessons notes for revision!
Our advanced interactive whiteboard has the capability to teach all subjects at all levels from our top experienced tutors. Learn any subject ranging from Maths, English and Science to Music, Japanese and Computer Science. We work on all levels as well as:
Online tutoring is similar and almost identical to distance learning. Online tutoring is the process of tutoring in an online, virtual, or networked, environment, in which teachers and learners participate from separate physical locations in real time.

It’s one of the new ways students can reach their full academic potential with the help of experienced teachers online.
With 100% focus from our experienced tutor one-to-one lessons are incredibly effective.
Being guided through the curriculum 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 9s and 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. One-to-one private tutoring boosts a child's confidence but only with the correct learning style curated by the tutor. This is why finding the best online tutor is crucial.
New studies show that online learning is not only at least as effective as face-to-face, but is often even more effective in terms of engagement and retention rates.
One-to-one 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.

Tutor websites and tutoring services like Sherpa also allow you to learn from the comfort of your own home! It is like having a home tutor there with you.
Your child can learn online with successful tutors with any subject, anywhere, at any time. Allow your child to reach their full potential!
Online tutoring is to work as a hybrid model for teaching alongside pupil's school
curriculums. 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 tricky maths equation or a crucial exam technique, online tutoring is
there to fill those gaps.
Online tuition will be more sought after in the school holidays. This is because most online tutors are free during the school holidays and so are the students who are needing revision sessions. So, remember to book your sessions in advance!
At Sherpa we only pick tutors with the correct teaching experience. It’s all very well
being an extremely knowledgeable person but being able to transfer that
information to the student is one of the most important skills that a tutor must
have. Our tutors have both teaching experience and expert knowledge of
