The Tutor Pages

The Tutor Pages ( has recently been founded by Christ Church alumnus Henry Fagg (2001). It's an online directory of private tutors with a difference: each tutor has submitted one or more articles on their expertise. This not only helps parents and students decide who to hire, but also makes the site a fascinating one to browse.

For example, there are articles ranging from 'How to Prepare Your Child for a Selective School' and 'Learning Latin GCSE Vocabularly', to 'A Buyer's Guide to British Harpsichord Makers' and 'How to Approach Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (1st mvmt)'.
