About our founder

Summer Kay, the founder of MaxYourGrades, is currently a second-year student at the University of St Andrews, pursuing a degree in Economics and Management. With over five years of accumulated teaching experience, she has tutored individuals of different age groups in various subjects, as well as coaching Netball and Tennis.


Summer's academic journey has been fuelled by her enthusiasm for learning. She dedicated significant time to researching and implementing various revision techniques to ensure her personal success. Her academic achievements speak to the effectiveness of her revision and examination strategies, receiving eleven 9s in GCSE and 3 A*s with an A* in her EPQ at A-level. Eagerly, she imparts these valuable techniques to her students, sharing her knowledge and experience to help them excel in their studies. Summer's book "How To Revise" (free download here!) contains 35 step-by-step revision techniques and has proven useful to many a student!


The establishment of MaxYourGrades stems from Summer's aspiration to unite accomplished and experienced tutors (of university age) with zealous and motivated learners. The platform offers the highest standard of online tutoring, aimed at maximising students' confidence, grades and potential. Summer firmly believes that students possess unique insight into effective tutoring as they have recently undergone the examination process themselves. They possess invaluable insights into effective tutoring, including exam techniques, tips, and tricks, and exhibit confidence in the subject matter, especially if they continue to study their teaching subjects at university level.
