After six years of teaching in London and five in Singapore, Ben Henry founded Clifton Private Tutors in Bristol to connect top tutors with families keen to discover what their children are capable of. Our tutors are available for in-person support in Bristol and online support around the world.
Tuition grows ever more popular as families seek 1:1 support to help their child progress in a manner not possible in a classroom environment. At Clifton Private Tutors, we believe that engaging students is the key to their learning. Success is measured not only through academic progress, but on how eager our students are to learn more.
Families sign up to Clifton Private Tutors because they expect the best for their child; all of our tutors are experienced, qualified teachers, passionate about their subject area, and DBS checked. We build confidence, bridge gaps and prepare our students for an increasingly competitive world. Sessions are available online and in person.

Over the past three years, no quality has been put to the test so thoroughly as resilience. When our carefully constructed worlds are shaken like an Etch A Sketch, do we adjust and recalibrate, do we make do with what we have and practice gratitude, or do we crumble?
Confidence does not mean being loud. In our aversion to the label ‘shy’, we sometimes mistake confidence with attention-seeking behaviours, expecting children to beat their peers to the front of the line and have their hand up to answer every question in class. Confident children are not always the centre of attention. A confident child joins the conversation or volunteers to do the activity because they know it’s okay to make mistakes. So how can we help to nurture this confidence?
