Local business owner, David Boddy of Tutor Doctor Central and Southwest London, has won a prestigious global award in recognition for his efforts and commitment to providing outstanding services to his local community and to the overall education industry throughout the pandemic.
Recently, David was presented with the President’s Award, the most coveted accolade from the annual Tutor Doctor awards. He was nominated from a network of 350 global Tutor Doctor businesses.
Working with families across the capital to survive the pandemic, David and his team, Suzie Oweiss and Victoria Davies-Jones, have demonstrated over the past 18 months that they have a can-do attitude, make things happen, are team players and work hard to accomplish the goals of both their business and Tutor Doctor as a whole. Qualities that this team has in bucketloads.
David is thrilled to have received this recognition in the three short years since their launch. “It’s an honour to receive the President’s Award. Every person involved in the business, including Suzie, Victoria, and tutors too, should be proud of receiving this. Despite the circumstances, we’ve become even closer during the last year and it’s really helped us make things happen.
“Disruptions to children’s education have been a huge issue throughout the pandemic. We feel very chuffed that our business has been recognised and feel that the award represents the value of being a team player. It’s important for businesses within a community to understand that they’re on the same team. It’s not just an individual award, it’s a shared award that affirms the community’s commitment and hard work throughout the year.”
The team’s contribution to children in the local areas didn’t go unrecognised once results day came along. “We calculated from the GCSE and A-Level results that, overall, our tutors managed to lift the attainment level for GCSE candidates by just under 3 grades and just under 2 grades for A-Level. We’re immensely proud of this achievement, as we’ve helped so many students achieve what they need in order to move onto the next stage of their lives after a frustrating period for them in particular. Through connecting with schools, authorities, and some small local charities, we’ve been able to be a part of the ongoing support for children in central and southwest London,” added David.
David, as well as being an established businessman and former press secretary of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, wants to be the most successful Tutor Doctor business owner in the world. He believes being awarded with the Tutor Doctor President’s award is not only a step in the right direction, but it validates the hard work and strong commitment to his and his team’s mission throughout the pandemic. Tutor Doctor Central and Southwest London has delivered about 6000 hours of lessons this year alone to students in Central London, Richmond, Chelsea, Hammersmith, Paddington, Chiswick, Ealing, Fulham and surrounding areas.
