WHAT IS TUTORYOU?
TutorYou is an Italian tutoring network in which students play the main role. TutorYou’s unique philosophy relies on ‘Students Helping Students’ as we strongly believe in the communication and relationship ‘peer to peer’. We help students achieve their maximum potential in all International Baccalaureate subjects, giving them the opportunity to improve their grades with the support and close monitoring of a personal tutor. Our tutors, which are now more than 250, come from the most prestigious University in the world and are top IB and A levels graduates. We are currently giving academic tutoring to IB, A/AS level and IGCSE and MYP students in International Schools in Italy and UK Boarding Schools.
We organize IB and GCSE Summer, Fall, Spring Revision Courses as well as pre-IB Revision Courses during which our tutors help students, sharing their experiences, thus consolidating their knowledge before the exam. Each subject is fully review in 3 days for a total of 18 hours in groups of maximum 5 students and a tutor. Moreover, we offer courses for each subjects and grade in order to put students which are on the same level together. Furthermore, our tutors also offer University counselling support during the process of making University choices and applications. We believe that no one knows better the process of application than someone who has just been through it. The tutor will assist the student in: University and Course Choice, writing of Personal Statement, gathering of documents (reference letter, predicted grades…) as well as completing the application on UCAS. Please get in touch as we have tutors who are prepared to help you throughout the entire process.
Why are we different?
TutorYou’s philosophy is :
TutorYou is a unique service composed of exceptionally motivated young individuals, who are endowed with an unrivalled talent. Our tutors guide high school students up the ladder leading to the highest International, academic and professional targets.
All of our tutors are ex-IB Students and most of them have also gone through the entire MYP and PYP programs. They have therefore developed and ultimately absorbed the ethical and moral principles of the International Baccalaureate. This means that they inspire an attitude of academic honesty to the students, along with all the other core requirements that are the backbone of the IB student’s personal development. Furthermore, tutors often report an appreciation of the challenge they experience while sharing ideas and knowledge with equally motivated high school students, who are being taught by outstanding educators in their schools. This result to be intellectually stimulating for both students and tutors!
TutorYou by no means claims or intends to replace school academic service, nor it wants to generate shortcuts, or by-pass teachers in any way.
TutorYou simply offers extra support to students. Students who are new to the program and are struggling, even with the basic steps required for embracing and succeeding in, this challenging path, as well as those who solely want to improve their grades. We believe that this is a unique and a precious resource for families.
Please, find below a description of how we work and of our main activities:
Our programs offer IB, A/AS Level, MYP and IGCSE students the opportunity to achieve their full potential in all IB, A/AS level and IGCSE subjects by working closely with their own personal tutor who will provide bespoke, tailored, educational support to suit the individual IB requirements of their tutee. All of our tutors, which are now more than 250, are top IB or A levels graduates. They are now studying at, or have graduated from, some of the most prestigious universities in the world. They have therefore developed and ultimately absorbed the ethical and moral principles of the International Baccalaureate. This means that they inspire an attitude of academic honesty to the students, along with all the other core requirements that are the backbone of the IB student’s personal development.
We, at TutorYou, match each of our top graduate tutors with the most appropriate student to provide unique, tailored educational support for every client. Once appointed, our tutors work with the students via one-to-one online sessions, with the support of a e-learning platform, monitoring the work closely and providing feedback tutorials for coursework.
We offer a Pre-IB Maths course, specific for students coming from the Italian education system that wish to start the IB. We also organise pre-IB courses for students that want to consolidate their knowledge – particularly focusing on Maths and English –for the entry IB exams.
We are a UCAS registered Centre; we assist students with their UCAS applications and their university degree choice due to our Office Services and our Global Students Network, which is creating a strong link across countries. For any query, prospective students can contact the members of our Global Students Network, who are university undergraduates studying the same subject of interest or who are attending their required University. These matches often lead to guided University visits. Moreover, TutorYou offers extensive preparation services to apply to UK, US and European Universities, including Personal Statement, TOK, and Extended Essays guidance, as well as interview preparation.

We assign a personal tutor (IB graduate, current university student) to students who are looking into building their pathway to university. We believe that no one knows better the process of application than someone who has just been through it. The tutor will assist the student in: University and Course Choice, writing of Personal Statement, gathering of documents (reference letter, predicted grades…) as well as completing the application on UCAS. TutorYou offers extensive preparation services to apply to UK, US and European Universities, including Personal Statement, TOK, and Extended Essays guidance, as well as interview preparation.
Global Student Network:
Our latest project is the creation of the Global Students Network; this is a community of university students around the world, creating a strong link between the continents. By keeping in touch, members of the network are able to communicate across diverse Countries and Universities. The Global Network is also useful for High School students who are unsure about their future. Whether they have any questions or doubts about certain universities, or whether they want to visit some, they will be able to get in direct contact with a student from the university they are interested in and eventually meet him/her directly on campus if they wish with guided university visits.
Workshops in Italian High Schools:
We promote the educational programs of our Partner Institutions organizing Workshops and University fair in Italian High Schools, which provide a great opportunity for students to meet both University representatives and our tutors. In this way, high school students can learn about university degrees and understand how other students are coming to terms with university life. These events are free of charge for both University representatives and the schools which host them. We closely collaborate with: Liceo Cairoli, Istituto Marcelline in Milan, Liceo Severi Correnti, Istituto Leopardi, Liceo Vittorio Veneto, Istituto Beccaria and many more.

TutorYou promotes world-wide Summer Residential Programs in collaboration with Colleges and Universities. These courses offer innovative academic and extra-curricular activities, as well as Community Service options. TutorYou offers help with the choice of a selection of the best Boarding Schools for Italian high school students, who decide to complete their fourth or final year abroad, before university. Some of the boarding schools that TutorYou works with include: Taunton School, Hockerill Anglo-European College, Charterhouse, St. Clare’s Oxford, TASIS, Abbey School, Fettes College, Buckswood College and Christ’s Hospital. This allows them to gain a qualification from high profile UK institutions and successfully apply to UK and US Universities.
