I have been with Classroom teachers for the past three years. I must say it is the best agency I have ever worked with. Especially my consultant , Amba, goes extra mile to help . As a SEN Home Tutor , it is very difficult to find work as it is so limited and "niche" and not other agencies deal with vacancies as such, but Classroom , is one of the best agencies to deal with this kind of work.

They came to Sydney to discuss working and they sounded very friendly at the interviews and when I was in Australia at the time. However, this was not the case once in London.
