Dominic was clear, fast paced, and have managed to mend sizable gaps in the UK and USA curriculum in less than two months. His explanations were great and knowledge of exam requirements excellent. Your choice of tutors is wonderful and I am very happy I entrusted our tutoring requirements to your company."Mother of 13 Plus student

Our son was offered a place at Westminster Under, Sussex House, The Dragon and Wetherby Prep - a 100% hit rate. I don't think it would have been possible without some help, and importantly we felt like all that talent and effort was aimed in the right direction - which is largely thanks to you! We'll doubtless be coming back to you soon for advice on Public Schools, but for now we're in the wonderful position of having our son on his way to our first choice prep school."Parent of 7 Plus student
