I didn’t plan to get tutoring for my son, however, by the end of year 4, it became apparent that his school were doing very little (ie nothing) towards the 11 plus and if we wanted him to stand a chance of having a grammar education then we would have to do it ‘off our own bat.’ Leigh Tutoring offered a great preparation at a good price. The best things about learning in a group were that my son didn’t mind going to the classes because he knew other children were too and it also brought out the competitive element in him. The staff are lovely conscientious teachers who understand kids. Keely took great care to work on my son’s weaker points – his maths – so he benefited from individual learning even within the group setting. She also noticed other weaknesses, his timing issues for example and worked on ways to overcome them. By the time the exam came around my son knew exactly what to expect.. There are no guarantees with the 11 plus, but thanks to Leigh Tutoring I feel absolutely confident that we did the best we could to prepare our son.
Words aren’t enough to say just how fantastic Keely and her team are at Leigh Tutoring. My son has just had the amazing news of getting into Southend High School for Boys and he couldn’t have achieved his potential without their support and guidance. He is the youngest in his year and a very lively child but after his first time at tutoring, he came out saying that he loved it. The small class sizes allowed him to ask questions and get answers from the teachers (unlike the large class sizes at school). A big thank you to everyone that taught my son!
