A Word From Nikki...


Many thanks for taking the time to look round the Lemon Tree. I’m Nikki de Villiers – Lemon Tree’s founder, teacher and writer. 

First off, it’s a privilege to work with children. And always has been since my first post as English and Special Needs teacher in 1992. It’s also a huge responsibility I feel entrusted with.

I understand more than anything that you want to give your children the very best start in life, so they can make their mark on the world and be happy… 

Yet sometimes, our children need more than what they experience in school. They need a teacher who can devote time to them, who can explore new ways to unlock their potential, who can help them overcome any obstacle.

That’s why I established Lemon Tree Tutors to connect parents with outstanding specialists who know how to make a difference. Tutors who have the time to put your child first. Qualified, vetted tutors you can truly count on…

What continues to inspire us? When parents tell us how proud they are to see their children achieve so much in such a short space of time. When young people overcome a challenge that stumped them. And when switched off youngsters enjoy learning again, it makes our hearts sing. 

The Lemon Tree Difference

Unlike some national agencies that farm out enquiries in seconds, we do our homework. After assessing your child’s needs, we painstakingly match your child to the right tutor. From then, we personalise lessons with an holistic approach. 

Best of all, we even achieve the impossible as we never give up.  Something our parents hugely value… Because English, Maths, Science and 11+ tuition are our most popular subjects, our tutors have all-important expertise in their subject – another bonus point.

In Surrey, though a handpicked tutor team can teach face-to-face in Weybridge to Guildford, our specialists are successful online tutors who support you wherever you are.  

Similarly in West Sussex – around the Chichester area – we have specialist English and Maths tutors on hand. However, online tuition has been so successful that parents choosing convenience are happy to work with a tutor they can rely on…

Do get in touch today to see how our Surrey and West Sussex tuition experts can help your child achieve their ‘impossible’ too…. Look forward to hearing from you.

Kindest thanks
