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.
