Students Lying on Floor in Classroom.


We are a local business with a passion for matching pupils to tutors. 

The agency offers a professional, friendly and tailored service to suit you and your child’s needs.

Border Tutors is privately owned, working principally within the Scottish Borders.

Colin Green, an experienced teacher and parent, will carefully match your child to the right tutor from our extensive database.

We offer tuition in all subjects from Primary to Highers and also have experienced teachers who will help you with your personal statement in preparation for University.  Whether your child needs support to keep ahead, catch up in school or prepare for exams we can tailor a package to your individual needs.

Our tutors are carefully selected based on the following important criteria:

  • Experience in teaching and tutoring.
  • Up to date knowledge of the curriculum and exam syllabuses.
  • Subject knowledge. 

All our tutors are disclosure checked and references are taken.

We are confident we can match your child with a tutor whatever the subject or level studied.  Our tutors are engaging people who are passionate about their subject and have a wide range of resources including text books and past papers.

Our tutors will:

  • Provide one to one lessons where they will tailor teaching objectives to the pupil.
  • Create a personalised learning program suited to the pupil’s requirements.
  • Develop self confidence brought about by a better understanding of the subjects concerned. 
Our son hurtled downstairs in high excitement at past 10pm. 
‘Mum, Dad! I’ve just read my first ever book!’ he cried.
Gemma, his tutor, had given him the book  just that day. We had read a chapter with him at bedtime. Amazingly, he had then read the entire book (80 odd pages) to himself, in bed.  As he finally went up to bed he said: ‘Thanks, Mum!’. I asked: ‘what for?’ and he said: ‘for Gemma’.
Our son is almost 10 years old and his school has not been the best experience and left him feeling ‘stupid’ and ‘slow’. Gemma has left him feeling anything but and he really looks forward to seeing her.
We will all – always – remember ‘his first book’ and the feeling of accomplishment he has finally achieved.
