Bright Light Education

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
We are two primary school teachers and have been supporting children in their education for more than 10 years. Several years ago, after having our own children, we set up Bright Light Education. We are proud to run successful courses as well as offering a network of qualified teachers for 1:1 support.

Bright Light Education is a Corporate Member of The Tutors’ Association, the only professional membership body for tutoring and the wider supplementary education sector in the UK and is recognised as such by the UK Government. Becoming a member of The Tutors’ Association signifies a commitment to the profession, and to upholding the highest standards of safeguarding, professional practice and ethical behaviour.

Please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be more than happy to talk.

“It’s been amazing having you Danielle to help our son over the past couple of years.  I think there are so many areas where you have made a massive difference …and also really boosted his confidence.  I can’t quite believe that he won’t have you any more…..don’t think that’s quite sunk in!  A huge thanks for all the very tailored work you’ve done regarding his dyslexia, all the extra reading etc and the really positive, fun ways you are always finding to make it all as enjoyable as possible. You have been amazing!”

“Charlotte has been a fantastic tutor to my daughter, keeping the sessions interesting and fun. The combination of small group and one-to-one sessions ensured my daughter remained enthusiastic. Charlotte fed back fully after each session and gave me resources for us to use at home to reinforce the learning process. I would highly recommend Bright Light Education!”
