The fulham Study

‘Tailored tuition from a passionate and diligent team’

The Fulham Study is committed to helping our students realise their full potential, to improve their knowledge and their confidence, and to feel supported in everything they do. By tailoring our tutoring to the specific needs of the individual, we address development areas efficiently and make the learning experience special for the students.

In 2006, our Head of School Carol Cox qualified as a Specialist Teacher and began tutoring from her home in Fulham. Carol taught one-on-one lessons there for seven years before setting up The Fulham Study in 2013. Having worked in London based, highly academic independent preparatory schools since 2005, Carol has a wealth of knowledge about what is required of a young person when moving into secondary school and is fully aware of the highly competitive arena in which the children need to perform.

Carol not only applies her expertise with children, but also provides a place where worried parents can come to discuss and air any academic concerns that they may have. Everyone, from our tutors to our Admin team, is fully committed to keeping The Fulham Study a zero-pressure and calm environment, to best facilitate our students’ learning.

Safeguarding Policy

At The Fulham Study, all of our tutors are DBS checked and receive regular safeguarding training and guidance. Before commencing work with us, we check tutor’s qualifications and experience and seek references from previous employers. Tutors understand our Code of Conduct and Safeguarding Policy. Lessons either take place at our staffed education centre in Fulham or at the student’s home.

Half Term 2019

During our February Half Term (Mon 18th Feb – Sun 24th Feb) and our Easter Holidays (Mon 8th April onwards), we will be continuing with our 13+ Clinics.
These Clinics will consist of English, Maths and Science, and will be led by highly experienced tutors who consistently teach the curriculum during term time.

We find these Clinics to be extremely beneficial for our students, as they help to clarify topics they will have learnt in school, to maintain a consistent level of studying during the holiday period and provides a space where students can interact with their peers and grow in confidence together.

The dates for these Clinics can be found by clicking here.

What Parents are Saying

“The quality of teaching at the Fulham Study is superb, but taught with such a friendly and supportive approach that my girls have always been happy to attend their sessions. They also offer a fantastic range of support services like touch typing or handwriting improvement. All the tutors appear delightful – feeding back instantly to parents and more importantly, making the children feel good about learning. The classroom environment is also great – lots of space and light – and the occasional sweet to end a session!”

“Both of my daughters have had the benefit of the expert tuition offered at the Fulham Study. It is a fantastic place. The staff are very professional, experienced and thorough and have given excellent tuition to my daughters. Their in depth understanding of the London secondary schools admissions process and exams should be highly commended. They also carry out their tuition in a very caring and kind way. They seem to fully understand the characters of the children and their best learning styles. Finally, they have been incredibly supportive to me as a parent and have provided robust and calm guidance throughout the stressful exam preparation. I would highly recommend Carol Cox and her team at the Fulham Study.”

“Carol Cox is the most wonderful, experienced teacher. When she first met my son, he hated Maths, and had absolutely no confidence. She got the measure of him almost instantly, and worked to build up his confidence, always being encouraging whilst also being naturally authoritative and firm. My son adores her and trusted her instantly, and started to give things a go, and this has led to a wonderful virtuous circle of improvement. Carol has high expectations, whilst also understanding the curriculum and working within the framework of what he is doing at school. She understands my son brilliantly, and has pushed him to achieve things that he would never have thought he could do. He has actually started to enjoy Maths and his performance at school has improved dramatically, as has his self-esteem. For a child who is struggling and needs extra support I could not recommend Carol more strongly.”

“Professional, cheerful, my 14 year old daughter finds her chemistry lessons absolutely helpful and informative. Her tutoring really ‘clicked’ with our daughter’s style of learning today. She was so happy and reassured after her session. Thank you so much for your help – please pass on our appreciation to Jess for all she is doing.  Increased her subject confidence immensely, and continues to!As always, Fulham Study remains my favourite tutor place to go, if any of my children need a bit of extra support. You help us through those worrying blips that can arise from time to time. “

“I can’t praise Woody enough! He helped our daughter to touch type a couple of years ago and he’s doing an amazingly great job teaching our son to touch type now too. He makes the lessons fun and enjoyable, which makes all the difference. Thank you Woody!”

“Outstanding! Nil immediately understood my son’s needs and was able to provide him with the necessary skills and confidence to sit his exams. Nil is a real gem and I very much appreciate her patience and support of him. Her kindness and encouragement made a real difference. Thank you !!”

“I know we spoke after my son was recently accepted to Kings College, Wimbledon, but I just wanted to send a Thank You email, for all the help and support you have given us during our tuition time at Fulham Study.We know our son benefitted immensely from attending tutor lessons, once per week, for the year preceding his 11+ exams. As did our daughter for the ‘booster month’ preceding her successful 13+ common entrance exam. She is very happy at Queen Anne’s School, Caversham, Berkshire.Thank You so much for your unwavering cheerfulness, willingness to accommodate our preferred days, times, tutors and your ability to match both children to a tutor that they were best suited to, for any given subject/lesson focus that we asked.We thoroughly recommend Fulham Study, as indeed it was recommended to us 1.5 years ago. If we need our son to have some support in the future, we will definitely contact you.”

ParentSon and Daughter attending The Fulham Study

The team at Fulham Study made an enormous difference to our daughter’s confidence and the results she achieved at GCSE. Her tutors helped her understand the process and requirements of some of her more challenging subjects, as well as helping her with her exam technique. Best of all, she really enjoyed the tutorials themselves, so it never felt like a burden to do them. She felt supported, not just by her lovely tutor, but by the whole team, who were all cheering her on. I am extremely grateful to the friend who recommended Carol Cox to me, and I cannot recommend Fulham Study highly enough to anyone else looking for subject tutoring or highly targeted prep for exams.
