About Primary Tutors Scotland

Primary Tutors Scotland was set up in 2021 by Petra Baillie. Every tutor is a qualified and experienced primary teacher with a passion for helping children reach their highest potential!

Our online 1 to 1 sessions provide a fun and engaging learning experience which aims to build confidence and improve literacy and numeracy skills. All sessions are interactive allowing the pupils to be actively involved in their learning all from the comfort of their own home! 

After an initial assessment, we identify the areas of support for the individual pupil and create a programme of work specific to their needs. After each session, parents will receive updates on their child's progress.

Get in contact now for a free initial assessment!

Hello My name is Amber, I am a primary teacher with four years experience across all stages of the curriculum and with varying additional support needs.
