Being founded in 1934 by doughty miss Freeston, Westminster Tutors is one of the oldest tutorial institute available in the country. The reason that the institute was build was that Miss Freeston realized that, unlike her, there aren’t many women who have access to tutors that can help them in securing admissions in universities like Cambridge and Oxford. Miss Freeston has spent 40 years of her life on Westminster Tutors, making it famous for its teaching in a short amount of time.
The reason why the college is called Westminster Tutors is because of the fact that the college was originally in Artillery Row Westminster. Until 1992, the same premises were occupied by the college. Even though it was originally made for girls, by 1992, the services have been extended to male students as well. Also by then, students were also given A levels and GCSE tuitions too. In 1993, Westminster Tutors was merged into David Game group and the location was changed to South Kensington on the Old Brompton Road.
