For its transformative efforts in education, Chalk n Duster has received this year’s award for Best Primary-GCSE Tutoring Business - Greater London. Founded in 2016, Chalk n Duster offers one-to-one support, group lessons, and course materials to deliver accessible educational concepts.

Tutors provide tailored resources for students to ensure they fully absorb their classes and achieve academic excellence. Chalk n Duster captures each student’s level throughout the tutoring process to measure their ongoing development. For many students, their school career did not provide enough time for them to fully comprehend their lessons. Chalk n Duster’s aim is to bridge the gaps in students’ knowledge and nurture their self-confidence. With accessible resources and tailored support, students can regain their passion for learning in a warm and friendly classroom environment. Chalk n Duster prides itself on its commitment to education and unparalleled service. Tutors provide feedback after each lesson with regular, detailed progress reports, parent meetings, and examination support. Staff are dedicated to providing the highest quality of customer service and a faultless educational experience. The company’s fee structure is 40% less when compared to similar businesses, meaning the service is more affordable to parents while guaranteeing no compromise in the quality of education. 50% of parents arrive at Chalk n Duster having previously come from other tuition centres. Most students remain with the company prior to joining, giving Chalk n Duster the confidence that it provides the best education and service in the area. Since the coronavirus pandemic, students and educators have had to quickly transition to online learning. The subsequent developments in the education sector have permanently changed how education is delivered. Chalk n Duster has adapted with online classes and a platform for parents to virtually view their children’s homework scores. The company has embraced the flexibility and learning possibilities that online learning offers. Chalk n Duster’s agility ensures that it remains abreast of the evolving landscape of education as it moves away from classroom-based instruction towards virtual learning. Teaching staff are highly qualified in tutoring and experienced in working with professors and students to deliver their supportive services. Chalk n Duster’s resources are prepared by industry experts and can be designed to cater to individuals. Classes are kept small so that every student receives the care and attention they require to succeed. Tutors nurture students’ self-confidence over the tutorial period and aim to support them in delivering group presentations to demonstrate their new knowledge. New tutors are hired with a minimum of A grades in both their GCSEs and A Levels. Chalk n Duster’s rigorous screening process ensures only the most exceptional tutors are accepted. All teaching staff must align with the organisation’s educational vision and goals to unlock the full potential inside every student. Candidates undergo several interviews, background checks, and reference checks to confirm that they are fully qualified to deliver exceptional results in their teaching. Going into the future, Chalk n Duster aims to open three more branches in the next few years. The company will continue to deliver successful, brighter futures to students with its specialised programs and high-quality tuition. Chalk n Duster provides a safe environment for students to learn, grow, and rediscover their passion for education.
