First Tutors: Dance enables dance instructors to promote themselves through free online self-made profiles, which are then accessible to anyone in search of private dance lessons in their local area. We are the UK's leading online teacher-matching service.
First Tutors: Dance offers private dance instruction for any ability level required. Dance lessons are available for beginners to intermediate, advanced to competitive, or simply for recreational purposes across a broad range of dance styles. Our directory of dance teachers specialise in everything from Ballet and Ballroom to Salsa and Jazz.

First Tutors is also very proud to be recognised by The Good Schools Guide as a recommended place to find a private tutor. Tuition agencies must undergo extensive questioning before being listed in the guide.
First Tutors has been fortunate enough to win and/or be nominated for several business awards.
First Tutors has again been nominated by Education Investor for an award announced in November 2011. We picked up the trophy for best supplementary education provider in 2010 and have been nominated again this year. These awards celebrate the successes of the education industry and are judged by an independent panel of highly esteemed industry experts.
First Tutors won at Education Investor's award ceremony in November 2010. We picked up the trophy for best supplementary education provider (a category which primarily includes private tuition companies). These awards celebrate the successes of the education industry and are judged by an independent panel of highly esteemed industry experts.
Anita Moss, Director, took to the stage to collect the award and comments, "We feel delighted to receive this award, particularly given it recognises our role in education. Whilst we are considered a dotcom business our primary passion is to facilitate helping people learn, so be recognised as a strong private tuition firm is particularly meaningful.
Not so lucky with this one, but still delighted to be a finalist! This award recognises "young British entrepreneurs and digital excellence". First tutors was a finalist with three other businesses run by young entrepreneurs.
First Tutors won twice at the Big Chip Awards, celebrating the best of the digital industry. Judges remarked that, "A simple, effective use of interactive media to link tutors with those needing their services, the site was clear, the business model uncomplicated and the success obvious."
We were almost recognised for our strong use of technology to join tutors with tutees! Oh well.
We pick up an award for helping families to find tutors in a much more affordable way.
First Tutors is regulated by the Department for Business (BIS), with whom we enjoy frequent discourse as an agency with tens of thousands of tutors on the books! We are also members of the Federation of Small Businesses.
