Widening participation, changing futures
The AfSU Tuition Centre works to promote student achievement and create stronger student outcomes. It provides tuition in a group setting with AfSU Subject Tutors.
- Students are taught in 1 hour sessions, with a maximum of four hours per day.
- Helping get students into top UK universities by pairing tailored group support with the external AfSU community.
- Instilling ambition and helping students aspire towards achieving extraordinary results in their chosen pathways.
Group settings, redesigned
Through producing an in-house model, we will be teaching students in groups up to a maximum of 5*, with each group being taught by an AfSU Subject Tutor.
- Pairing up with a mentor who is a subject specialist and who attends a top UK University* in your desired pathway.
- Groups are created based on grouping students who are at similar stages of learning and by following the AfSU Scheme of Learning.
- The AfSU Scheme of Learning will work closely with the content covered by major examining bodies in the United Kingdom.
Generating student success, changing narratives
Through our Subject Tutors who attend top UK universities, we are able to provide unique and insightful methods of tuition - only at AfSU.
- Providing resources and opportunities to enhance students academic success.
- Giving students access to exclusive and unique academic resources to help them gain top marks in exams.
- Guaranteeing student success and enhancing post-18 student outcomes by helping students gain admission to top UK universities.
The AfSU Tuition Process
We have tried to simplify our booking process as much as possible. With no subscriptions, and a pay for what you use model, the tuition centre allows for students to only attend where they want to and to only pay for sessions they use. The chart below describes just some of the ways in which we support our students.
Booking your Slot
Book your session via our dedicated tuition website which can be found by clicking the button above. You can book slots up to four hours maximum a day, for subjects based on our capacity. There is no commitment - you only pay for the sessions you wish to attend, on a weekly basis.
Attending the Session
Once you've booked your session, we'll assign you to a group (of people at a similar ability to yourself) led by one of our Subject Tutors. You'll be following the AfSU Scheme of Learning, which follows the specifications and guidance set out by the major examining bodies in the United Kingdom so we can ensure you're being taught what you should be for the level you're at.
Support and Checkups
After you've completed your session, the tuition doesn't stop there! You'll be able to reach out for help during the week, at anytime, via the AfSU Discord where our active community of students can help you with questions you're stuck with, or even general advice you may need.
Pricing & Subjects
We have tried to keep our costs as low as possible so that we can accommodate as many students as possible whilst also retaining our high standard of teaching and tailored support. We have included our price plans below for GCSE & A-level students. We offer support for all GCSE and A-level subjects so long as there is availability. For FAQs, please scroll down to read further.
Frequently Asked Questions
Find answers to our frequently asked questions below. You can visit our dedicated tuition website which answers billing, queries and your account questions by clicking on the button below.
Can any student attend the centre?
Any student can attend the tuition centre – we welcome students from all backgrounds (ethnically or economically) and prioritise students coming from under-represented groups.
Are your services free?
AfSU aims to support students regardless of whether they attend the tuition centre or not. We will continue to provide our support through Discord, where we regularly respond to questions and interact with our community where we can.
The tuition centre offers students the ability to be taught in a group setting and cover gaps they may have in their knowledge across a wide range of subjects. This service does cost money, and we have our pricing models described on https://afsu.org/tuition.
When I book my slot, how do you put me in a group?
During your first lesson with AfSU, we will give you a thirty minute assessment which will give your tutor an understanding of the level at which you’re at. We then group you based on your results, each group will be covering the same content – just at a different pace. This is so you’re put in the group where you’ll be able to learn most efficiently.
Who are your subject tutors?
The AfSU Subject Tutors are handpicked members who currently attend University (or equivalent) and are specialists in their subject areas. Tutors are:
- Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Checked
- Attend monthly Subject Tutor training

- Recommend educational routes and avenues that students may be interested in
