Qualified Tutor is a grassroots Professional Membership Organisation for tutors. We are Raising Standards in Tutoring Together by ensuring that every tutor worldwide is Safe, Skilled and Supported.

Qualified Tutor was founded in 2018 by former school leader Julia Silver, to bring support and development to tutors worldwide.

Committed to raising standards in tutoring, Julia launched Qualified Tutor the grassroots Professional Membership Organisation for tutors. With accredited training, community, and the Love Tutoring Festivals, we have now reached more than 5000 tutors worldwide with our message that ‘Tutoring is Not Plan B, it’s a legitimate profession and for some, a better career choice’.

Julia is passionate about improving outcomes for students by nurturing the adults that work with them. She is currently working on her book, ‘Safe, Skilled, Supported: How to have a Successful and Sustainable Career in Tutoring’ soon to be published by Crown House.
