LUKE JONES LLB (1st Class Hons); BPTC; Barrister; PGCE (Outstanding); SET
Founder and Royal Tutor
Teaching Experience: Luke is a UK qualified teacher and Barrister (Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn) and is widely considered one of the best private tutors in the world. His track record is impeccable, and he boasts a 100% success rate spanning nearly 10 years. Whilst working in education, he became the youngest Head of Department in the UK, achieved a 100% pass rate and the best results in the College's history and received a commendation from the Minister of Education for his role in transforming a Sixth from College from an OFSTED grade 4 'inadequate' to a grade 2 'good' (the first time in history such a jump was made).
Luke's own academic record is flawless: as one of the first members of the National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youths, he went on to achieve one of the top five highest marks in his GCSE English Language, scoring higher than 47,000 students. At the prestigious Nottingham Law School, he was awarded a Dean's Commendation after achieving 1st Class honours in law and finishing top of his class. Luke then went on to achieve a further two degrees and qualifed as a teacher, before being called the Bar of England and Wales as a Barrister.
Today, Luke's passion is in teaching and education. Alongside his private tutoring work and consulting, he is the director of education at a global education charity he co-founded with the family of one of his previous students, which is based in Dubai and has enrolled students from three different continents. Luke then set up Royal Tutors in 2016, as a result of his growing concerns around the adequacy of tutoring provision in the UK, particularly at the top level, where he considered both tutors and students were getting a bad deal as a result of unscrupulous tuition agencies that would often put profits over pedagogy. As a result, Royal Tutors set the highest tutor requirements in any tutor company in the UK, with Luke then personally selecting only the very best tutors based on their tutoring ability - as excellent qualifications do not always translate into effective teaching.
That said - Royal Tutors now cover 25 subjects and boasts over 30 elite tutors.
Luke now tutors predominantly in London with his cohort of VIP students, many of which he has tutored for a number of years. Luke's current cohort include 2 members of a Royal Family, the daughter of the Governor and Viceroy of a British Overseas territory, an internationally acclaimed celebrity, alongside the children of a number of CEO's and CFO's of global companies, government officials and other high-net worth individuals. Luke is also proud to tutor several state-educated students with ambitious parents that go to considerable lengths to ensure their children get the best start possible!
As such, this is a role and responsibility that Luke takes very seriously - which in the past has seen him cancel vacations and business trips to ensure the success of his students.
When not tutoring, Luke makes himself available to students and parents 24/7, 365 days a year through Whatsapp/Text/Email. He feels it is important that the tutor also plays the role of a mentor - which means availability, accessability and openness all come with the role!

DR A MMATH PHD
Teaching Experience: I believe my role as a tutor is to provide my students with individual assistance and support with their problems, and equally importantly, to try and ignite their interest. I try and engage my students, to stimulate them, while still making them feel comfortable around me. It is essential that students not only get good grades, but also understand concepts, learn to think mathematically and solve problems themselves. Rather than just showing them how to solve problems, I encourage students to think and work through things themselves, while only gently prodding them in the right direction. This tends to be greatly enhance their knowledge and self confidence, and many are surprised at how well they do. Apart from having considerable teaching and tutoring experience at all levels, I am also friendly, patient, and enjoy tutoring very much.
