Anita Busby Gold Medal Tuition

The inspiration

Gold Medal Tuition is the vision of Anita Busby.

The idea came about in 2013 when her son started year one at his local school. It was discovered that he was found to have a reading age below the national standard for his age.

The teacher decided that extra help was needed for him to catch up. He was enrolled in an intensive reading programme at the school. These were one to one sessions with an teacher on a regular basis, over several weeks. It was soon afterwards that Anita noticed that not only had his reading improved, but his confidence grew too.


He was assessed at the beginning of the programme. His reading age was recorded as four years, eleven months. At the end of the programme , which was seven months later, he was reassessed. This time his reading age had improved to seven years, two months.

“I immediately saw the difference having one to one attention had on my son. I knew that if this could help one child, there are many out there who could benefit too”

After many years working for the NHS, Public Health Laboratory and a Pharmaceutical company, she was looking for a new venture. It had to be something that would make a difference in her local community and would bring her satisfaction. She used the skills gained in those industries into forming Gold Medal Tuition Limited.

At Gold Medal Tuition, we believe that “If you give children the tools and resources to overcome difficulties and build self-esteem, they will succeed beyond their wildest imagination. Truly reaching for the stars”.

Our aim is to help all students achieve their potential by giving them encouragement, understanding and individual attention.
