Bespoke tuition at all levels of study

Our name

“Ubi Tutors” originates from the Latin “ubi”, signifying “where”, denoting our platform as a prime locus or destination. This choice stems from the age-old Latin saying “ubi maior minor cessat” which means “where the greater is present, the lesser recedes”. This maxim, often invoked in legal discourse, emphasizes the ascendancy of a higher principle in instances of conflict.

“Ubi Tutors” aims to encapsulate this essence of excellence. The name itself suggests a promise: when you come to Ubi Tutors, you arrive at a place where premier academic guidance is paramount and that aims to be the destination, the “where” students can turn to for support.

Beyond its foundational meaning, the name was also chosen for its phonetic appeal. “Ubi” has a round, melodic resonance, making it memorable and inviting. Its brevity mirrors the efficiency and directness with which the organization operates.

Furthermore, “Ubi” embodies the idea of a journey – the quest for knowledge. When students ask, “Where can I find guidance?”, “Where can I achieve academic success?”, or “Where will I be truly understood?”, the answer points to Ubi Tutors. It’s more than just a name; it’s a testament to the institution’s mission and a constant reminder of its commitment to being the definitive place for academic excellence.

In conclusion, “Ubi Tutors” is more than a label; it’s a philosophy. It combines a sense of destination with the commitment to superior quality. It’s the fusion of historical wisdom with contemporary needs. And above all, it stands as a symbol of the journey and destination for academic aspirations.

History of our group

Ubi Tutors was established in 2020 by a group of friends whose shared passion for education ignited the desire to impart knowledge to others.

In the early stages, we focused on providing in-person tutoring services at the University of Cambridge, becoming a beacon of support and guidance for students.

Expanding our reach with the online platform

In a short span of time, our educational reach extended to the University of Oxford.

By 2021, we had launched the Ubi Tutor web platform, which became a significant milestone in our journey, allowing us to expand our services to online tutoring, seminars, and tutorials.

Our platform has become an invaluable resource for students worldwide in need of university guidance. No matter their location—be it Iceland, South Africa, China, or the United States—students can now receive personalized tutoring and support from the comfort of their homes. The advent of the web platform also enabled us to enhance our service offerings, granting students new avenues to learn and grow.

Francesco was a fantastic tutor. He has massively improved my self-confidence. He helped me write my application for my Masters degree (MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies) at Oxford and also ran me through a mock interview so that I could practice my interview techniques in preparation. He was always a message away whenever I needed to ask a question about my university application. I be turning to him for advice and revision techniques as I approach my finals later this year.

I am extremely satisfied with the guidance I received from Jonas. The admission process, which I initially found to be quite confusing and overwhelming, has become a well-defined path thanks to his mentorship. Jonas was not only knowledgeable and experienced, but he also had a great ability to break down complex information into simple, understandable terms. With his support, I was able to navigate through the admission process with ease and confidence. I am truly grateful for his guidance and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of assistance with their university admission journey.
