Thank you for all your hard work with our son, especially for giving him the confidence to succeed in the 11+- the main thing he was lacking before coming to you.


I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for my son, we will be forever grateful.


Thank you so much for your guidance and support you have given our daughter for the 11+, she couldn’t have done it without you.


We take this opportunity to thank you for your tremendous help for our son to pass the 11+ exam with a 252 score.


Thank you for all your help and support in preparing Alex for his 11+ exams. He has loved your lessons and still claims you are the only person he ever learns anything from. Alex couldn’t have passed without your help so thank you.


Thank you so much for all your help. I’ve learnt a lot and enjoyed it very much. I will never forget this!


Thank you for the help that you have given our son. We initially needed tuition to bring him up to speed as he was so behind in class. He has improved so much since then. He has really settled down and caught up. We never believed the 11+ was for him because he hadn’t ever enjoyed learning until attending your tuition and realising his full potential. Thank you
