"John's nurture and passion to inspire a love for literature and all-round support for the child is so wonderful.

English, 7+ and 11+ | Camille Goodman
"Camille Goodman tutored my son on a regular basis twice a week in 2015. During her time at University she continued tutoring him and my daughter during the holidays. My children were 6 and 8 years old at the time. During that time she has always shown to be reliable, the children loved her and most of all made huge improvements, especially with creative writing." ... See Camille Goodman's tutoring profile.
ISEE & SSAT | Caitlin Rea
"Caitlin has been all around terrific. She is on time, gets right to work, and most of all has established a great relationship with my daughter. I am relieved to have such a smart and genuinely interested tutor that can interact with my daughter in a positive way that keeps her interested and motivated! I am looking forward to having her work with my son over the next few months as well." ... See Caitlin Rea's tutoring profile.
GCSE Computing | Tom Johnson
"Tom is a very patient, articulate teacher who explains things calmly, thoroughly and in an easy to understand manner. He has worked brilliantly with Olivia - her knowledge and confidence with the subject matter has improved greatly and he must be credited with taking Olivia's grades from a B to an A* within a term. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Tom as a tutor." ... See Tom Johnson's tutoring profile.
ISEE Lower Level | Catriona Ramsay
"Catriona Ramsay is a fabulous tutor - we've never engaged one before and I must say we are very pleased to know such a competent, conscientious and brilliant professional. Catriona 'got' [our daughter] immediately and understands what [she] likes and dislikes. She knows how to negotiate working on the subjects [she] is less keen on (i.e. maths) and devises creatives ways to make learning these topics more fun." ... See Catriona Ramsay's tutoring profile.
Strategy Consultancy Interviews (LEK Offeree) | Edward Smith
"Ed took me through a structured method with which to approach interviews which really helped me to break the case study problems down: displaying the logical thinking that the interviewers were looking for, and also helping me find interviews much less daunting. I'm certain that Ed's logical, structured preparation (based on his own experience of the industry) played a huge part in me receiving an offer." ... See Edward Smith's tutoring profile.
Grade 5 Music Theory | Polina Sosnina
"Polina started teaching my daughter piano at the beginning of September this year and she has already made inroads into her preparation for her theory exam, through her unique style of teaching. She is an excellent teacher. She explains theory a lot better, in a structured manner, with good examples. She is happy to go over difficult areas several times until the student grasps it. She has helped my daughter to understand the features of certain kinds of music, such as baroque, classical and romantic, which is useful not only for her piano exam but also for her GCSE music curriculum. She gives moral support when needed - be it arranging mock exams for the student to improve her/his confidence before an exam or going the extra mile to accompany the student to the exam venue on the day of the exam. I highly recommend her." ... See Polina Sosnina's tutoring profile.
