Student and parent testimonials

“I only had lessons for two weeks leading up to my exams, but in such a short period of time my grade went from a C to an A. The English lessons we had together were some of the best I’ve ever had! – Shauna, Y11, West Island School

“I used to hate Chemistry but after Dr. M started teaching me, I have built up a solid foundation and am also considering taking it up at higher level for the IB.” – Akshay, Y11, Island School (Akshay moved from initially receiving a grade C for his placement test to an A* for his final exam)
