Home Tuition Scotland’s mission is to support independent learning for FE/HE students through the provision of dedicated, expert tutors and support workers.
We are an educational agency with a difference. Our Director has worked in the education, equalities and human rights field for over 25 years and, uniquely among NMH agencies in Scotland, is a qualified SpLD tutor. As a result, HTS offers a service that places each student’s individual needs over company profits.
Since 2012, we have grown in size through word of mouth and building a reputation for professionalism and integrity in the third level education sector. Our long-term business plan is not one of eternal growth – we are more focused on providing a transformative service for the students and clients we are lucky enough to work with.

Felicity Cameron is HTS Administrator. Felicity joined the HTS team in August 2019 and has a wealth of administrative expertise gained while working for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for 8 years in the UK and overseas and then running a family business in Edinburgh.
Felicity is currently studying towards a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree with the Open University, enjoying the flexibility of studying around work and family life.
Felicity is committed to equality and inclusion for all. Her mum was an Additional Support Needs primary school teacher and growing up, Felicity saw first hand the benefits to the whole school experience of the pupils who she supported. Felicity is determined that everyone should be given the opportunity to overcome any barriers they face to reach their goals.
Uniquely in Scotland, all HTS NMH workers are qualified to at least SCQF Level 9. We have implemented this recruitment quality criteria as our experience shows that 3rd level students thrive with support from fully qualified support workers who have studied to at least University Bachelor’s degree level themselves. HTS also has Registered Body accreditation with Disclosure Scotland which means we receive organisational updates about tutor records rather than the tutors themselves. We have worked towards achieving this accreditation as it is an important additional safeguarding measure for students, clients and HTS.
