Peppo Tutors was set up by Adrian Levy a City lawyer and father to three teenagers. Adrian found, through attending his children’s school events and charitable work for a national children’s charity, that nothing has changed in the 32 years since he left school. Children with wealthy parents were having extra 1-to-1 tuition and performing well academically whilst disadvantaged children were left with limited or no access to extra tuition. The academic gap was widening with many disadvantaged students being left behind with no prospect of reaching their potential. This blatant inequality drove Adrian to set-up Peppo Tutors which is structured so that 1-to-1 private tuition, funds tuition for disadvantaged children.
Peppo Tutors is named after Adrian’s grandfather Peppo Levy, a chemist and an inventor, who taught Adrian chemistry, the love of literature and the importance of following your dreams. Those lessons were short lived, when Peppo unexpectedly passed away, but the memories have never faded. Peppo’s passion for knowledge and joy of learning were inspirational.
Every child needs a Peppo in their life.
