Tutorial College

The prime focus of our tutorial college is to help students achieve the results to further their education and ambitions in life. Established in 1986, we’ve gone from strength in providing short- and long-term courses for students working for SSCE, JAMB, Cambridge IGCSE, O and A Level and, since 2010, the NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY).

The advantages of good results

With uncertain employment and strong competition for places in higher education, good examination results are essential. Our courses help students to achieve the best possible results in public examinations by giving them the tuition and preparation needed to face examinations with greater confidence and to perform to the best of their ability on exam day.
