We're on a mission to reform tuition standards. In a nutshell we work with individuals as well as tuition agencies and educational recruitment companies to introduce quality assurance in an otherwise unregulated industry
Our training is akin to a pocket-sized PGCE designed specifically for tutors, used as part of an induction process for new tutors or as continued professional development for experienced tutors
The Level 3 Award in Tutor Training Theory 'PRESET' is recognised, endorsed and quality assured by Training Qualifications UK, who are OFQUAL regulated. Following on from this training is the Certificate of Certified Tutor Status (CTS). This is an evidence based route for tutors.

Achieving Certified Tutor Status

They are committed to upholding and maintaining high standards of tuition and adhere to the roles and responsibilities in accordance with the Myelin Academia Tutoring Standard (MATS).


Reforming Tutoring Standards

Myelin Academia empowers tutors with the skills to teach their specialism with confidence and prepare students for life beyond the challenges of education. When word of mouth isn’t available, clients and agencies can trust that a tutor has the necessary training to develop learners with lifelong transferrable skillsets. 

Online Platform

Verify Authenticity of Certification

Addressing the need for standards as part of entry-level reform by creating a new framework for tutors

These standards have been developed by Myelin Academia in response to the unregulated nature of the tuition industry. As it stands there are no formal, consistent or standardised requirements for tutors to work within. This document provides a new framework for tutors & outlines their roles & responsibilities.  

The Level 3 Award in Tutor Training Theory 'PRESET' & Achieving Certified Tutor Status presents an opportunity for tutors to develop & demonstrate these standards, either on entry to the profession or as part of continued professional development.
