At Cavendish Milton, we provide tutors with our own unique content, crafted by specialists with years of experience in Education.
All tutors are rigorously trained in how to implement this content, which is tailor-made for our Programmes of Study and designed using the latest research in Education Science.
The only way to access these unique resources is with a tutor through Cavendish Milton.
Our tailor-made content is rooted in Assessment for Learning Methodologies, which means that an experienced professional in a one-to-one setting can focus a lesson exactly where the student needs it most, and do so every single time.
Each lesson sits within a customised Programme of Study, which shows both the parent and tutor the measurable progress achieved by our pupils through all of their lessons with Cavendish Milton.
We believe every child has the right to fulfil his or her potential, which is why we designed this approach in the first place. No matter the class size, in a school no child gets the one-to-one benefit that tutoring brings, and our methodology maximises this advantage.
We set achievable targets for every pupil, and work hard to ensure that every child has the best chance possible to achieve their goals – be that entry into a preferred senior school, university admission, or a certain grade on an exam.
At Cavendish Milton, we specialise in preparing children for taking 11+ exams in all their formats.
Our material in Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning is outstanding, and unique in its ability to help pupils progress through programmes of tuition.
We utilise our specialist Assessment-Led approach with every single pupil, showing you exactly how we are progressing towards challenging and measurable targets for success.
We know how competitive the UK education market has become, which is why Cavendish Milton brings together years of experience from professionals who have not only helped hundreds of pupils through the process, but who have experienced the system themselves.
We provide Entrance and Admission support at every step on the way through your child’s educational journey, assisting parent and pupil to make the right choice for their future.
No matter the subject or the level it is studied at, Cavendish Milton will provide you with the expert support required to reach your full potential academically.
Our tutors are all subject specialists with honours degrees from top universities in their chosen subject. They are selected by us for their exceptional teaching ability and passion, and all undergo our rigorous training programme.
Ranulph is the Managing Director of Cavendish Milton. He founded Cavendish Milton to build an agency around the passion & expertise he developed over several years as a professional tutor. His ambition is to build on the hugely successful Assessment-Led teaching methodology he has spearheaded by training other tutors in his methods and building specialist content to support them. Ranulph’s teaching has focused on standardised tests taken by pre-adolescents, such as the 11+ exams often taken by pupils in the UK. His Assessment-Led approach has seen great results, with his pupils regularly achieving and often exceeding their educational goals: be that entrance to a specific school, exam success, or academic fulfilment more generally.
His Assessment-for-Learning expertise has seen him consult for several Educational Service Providers in both the private and voluntary sector, including the charity Action Tutoring, with whom he dedicates much of his time outside Cavendish Milton. Elsewhere in education, Ranulph has worked as a Home-Educator for several families, and he continues to teach both Physics and Philosophy at A-Level, often working with the Oxford Tutorial College.
He begins part-time study at the University of Oxford for his MSc in Educational Assessment in Autumn 2018. There he will conduct research and submit his thesis, focusing on the validity and efficacy of Standardised Aptitude Tests taken by 9-11 year olds, taking his professional expertise into an academic setting. He read for his BA in Philosophy and Economics at University College London (UCL). Prior to founding Cavendish Milton, he worked in Investment Banking at JP Morgan Chase & Co., where he covered European Telecoms in the Equity Research team.
Alison is Senior Tutor at Cavendish Milton, with responsibility for and oversight over all areas involving recruitment, tutor-training and operational management. Prior to joining Cavendish Milton, she has served for several years as the primary co-ordinator and supervisor of the Cambodian NGO ‘Pour un Sourire d’Enfant’ Summer-Camp programme. There she was responsible for the day-to-day management of more than 1000 children and 200+ staff in multiple locations across Cambodia, as well as taking sole responsibility for the international recruitment of volunteers throughout the year.
She furthered this expertise as a Recruitment Consultant with the London-based Timberseed, having previously worked in Luxembourg with CACEIS and EY. She decided to join Cavendish Milton in order to merge her expertise in operational management with her love of education – private tutoring in particular, which is a field Alison had engaged in previously on a part-time basis for many years. She boasts a fantastic record of success, and is fully subscribed to the Assessment-Led approach of Cavendish Milton. Alison specialises in the teaching of French, Italian and Spanish and is experienced in teaching children with dyslexia.
Alison reads at the University of Oxford for her MSc in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation, where her subject specialism is on interventions targeted towards the reintegration of victims of sexual trafficking into society, a passion developed through many years of working with sexually exploited children in Cambodia. She previously read for her BA in European Social and Political Sciences at University College London (UCL). Away from Cavendish Milton, Alison volunteers with the Survivor's Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
