The Tutors’ Association’s 5th AGM

The Tutors' Association

I am a regular attendee at The Tutors’ Association’s AGMs (a young baby was to blame for the one I had to miss) as having been a corporate member since its inception in 2013, I am fully supportive of the work that they do.


This year, the location was a study room at UCL – not quite the grandiose location of St James’s Square as last year – but a fitting atmosphere to talk about our industry. The President, Adam Muckle, and the Honorary Treasurer gave another positive report: the TTA is engaging with projects such as mentoring at Centrepoint and teaching in prisons; Adam continues to speak at events and in the press; they have almost sold all their sponsorship for their second conference to be held at The Barbican Centre in October; and they were even asked to provide a Private Tutor profile for the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services’ Prospects website (what an advancement!).

I asked Adam whether he felt that the public’s perception of private tuition was changing and everyone agreed that yes, there has been a shift – notably there seems to be fewer sensationalist articles in the press about our industry. Membership is growing at a rate of 31% per year (currently around 720 members) and considering that the 200 or so corporate members have a reach of 30,000 tutors, there is a real sense that our industry is taking note of TTA and recognising its value, both in the benefits it offers its members and its aims and vision.

Sarah and I will be attending the national conference in October – and Dan is going to be one of a panel of five talking about well being and mental health and. Do come and join us!
