Our Teachers

Here at Impact Tuition Urmston only qualified, experienced and enhanced DBS checked teachers plan and teach our pupils’ lessons. In the UK there are currently no regulations governing who can tutor your children. Some “tutors” or “instructors” do not have teaching qualifications or experience – we believe in the value of qualified, experienced and professional teachers. You can be assured that our teachers are very knowledgeable and proficient in teaching their subjects and age ranges.

Kelly Barrett (ATD), who is the lead teacher owns Impact Tuition. We have a great team of qualified teachers with different specialisms but they all share a passion for teaching and a belief in an ethos of personalised learning and confidence building.

Impact Tuition is a small independent business, employing local people – your tuition fees contribute to local families’ incomes, not an offshore investment fund or third holiday home for a CEO!
