The history of Greene’s Tutorial College goes back to 1967 when Edward Greene founded a small tutorial college known as Edward Greene’s Tutorial Establishment in the seventeenth-century buildings of 45, Pembroke Street in Oxford.
Since then, over 15,000 students have been taught at Greene’s at various stages of their education. Some, like the tutors who taught them, have gone on to distinguished and prominent careers. Many, fondly remembering their own time at Greene’s as students or tutors, have returned as parents with their own children, to seek the benefits of individual tuition – and also to see how much Greene’s has evolved over the years to meet the challenges of the present.
If you are one of that handful of early students who remembers your time in the late sixties, or a more recent student, tutor or parent, please do contact us. We would very much like to hear your experiences and anecdotes, and we will see if we can put you in touch with your contemporaries.
We are building an archive of pictures and memories and we would value your contribution. Likewise we welcome any ideas as to how we might develop our alumni section to benefit you.
