Our History

Established by Edward Greene in 1967 under the name Edward Greene’s Tutorial Establishment, Greene’s is Oxford’s oldest tutorial college and has supported the education of approximately 15,000 students over the last 50 years.

Having read Classics at Wadham College, Oxford, Edward Greene worked as a private tutor and also a teacher at Magdalen College School until he founded Greene’s.

From the beginning, Greene’s sought out the best tutors in Oxford to deliver high-quality tuition.  Built on the tutorial method that has defined Oxford University learning, Greene’s has remained true to its roots of basing its courses on individual academic programmes to students of any age and background.  Under its current principals, Matthew Uffindell and Christopher Upton, Greene’s has grown to have a register of approximately 160 tutors and 300 students.
