The Benefits of Online Study Groups

July 02, 2020 by Hannah
Image To support students during the pandemic, Tutorfair is setting up Online Study Groups which allow students to continue their learning in a small group with a top tutor - at 50% of the tutor’s normal rate! Tutorfair’s Online Study Groups are specially designed to help tutors cater to the changing needs of students and to help ensure that lost learning due to school closures is recovered.

What are the benefits of group tuition?

Research has shown that small group tutoring is as effective as one-to-one learning. Groups will allow students to learn with high-quality private tutors delivering lessons tailored to them. Working with friends and other students will also enable interaction and social engagement during the lockdown whilst being more affordable than one-to-one tuition as well as accessible throughout the country. 

How does it work? 

You can head to our online courses page to view current groups that are already running and ready for you to join immediately.

We also have several pending groups where we already have one student registered and they are waiting for another student to buddy up for 50% off.  You can view current pending groups here. 

Alternatively, if you can't see a group you'd be interested in then you can let us know by emailing and we can help set this up!

Can I form a group with a friend? 

This is a great opportunity for your child to buddy up with friends and receive top tuition in a fun online learning environment - at a discounted rate. All you need to do is email Hannah at with the subject/ level to set this up.

Which platform do the tutors use?

We give our tutors the flexibility to choose which online classroom they use for their lessons. However, most of our tutors for Online Study Groups use either Zoom, Skype or Bramble.


Once you have registered and paid for your group session you will receive an introduction email from your tutor with details on how to join.

How do I make payment? 

Payment must be made by bank transfer in advance of the lesson once a lesson time has been agreed. Invoices will be issued, and upon payment, receipts will also be issued.  Payment can be made to Tutorfair via bank transfer. The lesson is not confirmed until at least 2 students have made payment.

In the event that not all group members have paid before the lesson start time, the lesson will either go ahead without them (when the remaining group has 2 students or more) or be rescheduled (if the remaining group has only 1 student).You can view our full Payment, Cancellation and Refund Terms here.
