We provide individual, tailor-made Geography tutoring.
We will be happy to help you with tutoring also in Burton upon Trent.
We test the student’s knowledge, and using the results of
placement tests and any other requirements, we prepare a study plan, and online tutoring can begin next week.
Tutoring can have a different focus and also length. One lesson lasts 45 minutes, but some people prefer a two-hour
lesson (90 minutes) or even longer blocks. Courses are always individual, so you don’t have to wait for the
course to open. You can start at any time. The course length and lesson intensity depend on you. Some people
choose the so-called „quick help“ in the form of 5 lessons, and others prefer regular semestral or annual
At School Populo, we can ensure regular tutoring, preparation for important exams and certificates, but we can also help with pre-school preparation or preparation for resits. Whether you need help improving your knowledge of the subject for school or work, or just for your own interest, we are here for you.
We help students with complex topics at school or with homework. We will prepare them for ongoing tests or help catch up with missed topics. We can prepare you for GCSE, A-LEVELS, and other exams.
Together with the methodological centre, our tutors will draw up a study plan for each student and regularly supplement materials for home practice.
Our sophisticated online teaching system offers time flexibility so that you can study from the comfort of your home. Apart from your own computer and connection, you don’t need any special equipment.
Each of our future students has the opportunity to take a free placement test. Based on its result, we will recommend a suitable lesson frequency and length. After each lesson, you will receive
the minutes of the lesson, the topics covered, and the evaluation of progress via e-mail. Parents and students are also informed about each upcoming lesson via an SMS message, which contains
the lesson date and time and the tutor’s name.
Many thanks to School POPULO for providing Spanish lessons
Many thanks to School POPULO for providing Spanish lessons. As a complete beginner, I appreciated that they chose a very capable, but at the same time, patient tutor who tries to adapt each lesson to my needs. Her preparation for individual lessons is always very dutiful, and thanks to her, I am getting more confident in Spanish after every lesson. I would also like to pay attribute to the coordinators of School POPULO, whose approach is very helpful and professional. The school's overall functioning has always made a friendly impression on me. I can only recommend School POPULO and its tutors to everyone.
Tutors of the Italian language proved to be a great benefit for me.
My tutor was friendly and inspiring. She was always amazingly well prepared for the classes as well as for my questions.
My daughter and I are very satisfied with the tutoring
Leanne T., mom
My daughter started high school and got lost in math from the beginning. School Populo was recommended to us by a school psychologist. My daughter and I are very satisfied, and we intend to continue tutoring until the fourth year.
I would like to thank School Populo for a very good math tutor
Amy T., mom
I would like to thank School Populo for a very good math tutor. Although he is still a student, his knowledge and ability to teach mathematics are excellent. We are happy to use the services of the School again.
I wanted to thank you for a great tutor. We were very satisfied
Marcella F. and son Matthew
Today we finished online classes with the tutor Mrs. Lily K., and I wanted to thank you for this great tutor. We were very satisfied. My son enjoyed the classes a lot. Mainly he learned a lot and gained the knowledge he lacked, and improved his grades at school. So for us, amazing tutoring, as you say, “tailor-made” :). Mrs. Lily focused on the areas he needed to improve, and we are all very satisfied. Thank you once again.
Every teacher has to start somewhere, and School Populo is an ideal place for that.
I’ve been a teacher at Populo School for some time now. Like any job, tutoring has its pros and cons. To start less positively, especially when preparing for admission exams, it is a demanding job, both in terms of time and head. Both for me as the tutor who has to teach students, be it at seven in the evening or three in the afternoon, I still have to be just as fresh and well prepared, and for coordinators who are literally struggling with the time possibilities of students and tutors that need to match. However, these negatives are well outweighed by the friendly atmosphere, pleasant tutoring premises, and the fact that students do not have to be afraid to go to School Populo, the evaluation is not set as numbered grades, but the tutors use letters to express students’ progress and activity. The amount of textbooks and teaching materials only complements all the positives that the Populo School is proud of. If someone told me that I would have tutoring as fun and I would look forward to every lesson, I would not believe it. However, with School Populo, this idea came true, not only because the tutors are "tailor-made" for each student. Every tutor has to start somewhere, and School Populo is an ideal place for that. The coordinators will help, advise and do everything to make every tutoring a success.
My granddaughter started attending tutoring at Populo
Eleanor L., grandmother
My granddaughter started attending tutoring at Populo last year when she was in the ninth grade, and her grades were like on a rollercoaster. The worst was chemistry, and she improved in it a lot. In the second half of the year, we replaced chemistry with Biology and I must say that the progress was evident. In the spring, I arranged a few mathematics lessons for my youngest granddaughter (6th grade), who needed to improve her grades for the report card, and she also improved. It is true that both girls were interested in improving. If there was no interest, it probably wouldn’t be that good. I definitely appreciate the environment – a friendly atmosphere, and tutors who can work with moody teenagers. After each lesson, parents receive on their e-mail an evaluation, but here I have the impression that there is a tendency rather to praise. This year, one of the granddaughters continues attending Populo.
At School Populo we were very satisfied with our tutor
At School Populo we were very satisfied with our tutor. Our son made a significant shift in understanding the subject that he struggled with. His tutor was friendly, helpful, and interested in our son’s current subject needs that needed to be explained and practiced.
I can recommend School Populo to those interested in taking classes
I can recommend School Populo to those interested in taking classes. We have a very good personal experience with the tutoring coordinator, Miss Barbara P., as well as the German language tutor Miss Barbara K., always a professional approach, friendly approach, willingness.

I would like to thank School Populo
Alice T., mom
I would like to thank School Populo for a very good math tutor. Although he is still a student, his knowledge and ability to teach mathematics are excellent. We will be happy to use the services of the school someday.
Daniel started tutoring at School Populo in September 2017 and now he spends most of his time preparing primary school pupils for an admission test to high school. He studies Mathematics and Descriptive Geometry with a focus on teaching at the Faculty of Science at University, so Daniel also tutors those subjects. He decided to pass on his knowledge of mathematics to the younger students just before he sent his application to the university and he does not regret this decision at all. Daniel enjoys working with students. He believes that each individual needs to have the topic explained in a different way, so he always takes the opportunity to make his students understand it as much as possible. He also makes the students enjoy mathematics and look forward to the lessons using his friendly approach, so they do not have to be afraid of asking him for help. In his free time, he tries to improve his English, plays floorball, goes to camps as a leader, and likes to visit new places and meet new people.
Wenceslas, Ph.D., Ing.
Physics, chemistry, technical drawing, electrical engineering and computer science tutor
I have never wanted to be a teacher. But I couldn’t keep that at all. As an external teacher of technical and science subjects, I actually constantly dabble in the craft of real teachers. Otherwise, I mainly focus on applied research in the fields of physical chemistry and electronics. Why did I choose School Populo? Because I want to be a peer counsellor to students, not a beadle, desperately trying to maintain discipline in a classroom full of people. People who don’t care what I tell them, don’t care what I show them in the lab…. who have minimal interest in any educational activities and creative activities. I know that I can make a lesson attractive and unconventional. Then I feel even more disappointed when I see students waiting desperately for the bell to ring and for their escape deep into the big city. School Populo is unique in this – almost everyone who comes is interested in leaving with something inside their minds.
Italian language tutor
Christina completed her university studies in Management Informatics at the School of Business Administration. She works as an Italian tutor at School Populo. She gained knowledge and a close relationship with the language through several years of experience in Italy, where she studied and was gaining new work experience for eight years. She likes to pass on not only knowledge of the Italian language but also practical advice on traveling and working in this sunny and energetic country. Christina prefers a one-on-one approach to teaching, where the lesson can be adapted to the knowledge and type of perception of each student individually. She obtained the CISL certificate at the C1 level. She spends most of her free time in the mountains or mountain biking and doing other educational activities. Her motto is: Reading and moving will help you banish all unnecessary and regressive thoughts ... you won’t have time for that.
Mathematics and physics tutor
Alena has been working in School Populo since September 2017. She has been professionally engaged in individual tutoring for more than 11 years, i.e. since completing her studies in Demography at the Faculty of Science, Charles University. She later took a Montessori pedagogy course and is currently completing a pedagogical minimum for secondary schools. She says that the best teacher is the one who studies something himself because he can take on the role of a student. Therefore she constantly attends some educational courses (English, French, or art workshops for adults). Alena perceives learning primarily as mutual enrichment – the teacher passes on his knowledge, the child then its view of the world. She likes to relax, having walks in the woods with her dogs, painting, or reading a good book.
