A selection of comments we have received from parents over the past few years.
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!
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.
I cannot recommend Leigh Tutoring highly enough and would say that if you are considering having your child tutored for the 11 plus, Leigh Tutoring is certainly the place to go. My son attended Leigh Tutoring to help with his 11 plus studies and I can honestly say I couldn’t have chosen a better place. From the moment my son started he was motivated and willing to learn. With the small numbers in each class the children get all the help and attention that they need and Keely and her staff ensure that the children are all happy in their learning environment.. My son has just passed his 11 plus and has gained a place at Southend for Boys. We are over the moon and know that without the dedication that Leigh Tutoring has offered this may not have been possible.
We would like to thank you for all the help you have given our grandson over the last 10 months. He has gained enormously from this experience and enjoyed it as well. The teachers have been incredibly patient, giving him extra support and even extra lessons free of charge as he is dyslexic. I am over the moon that despite this difficulty, he has passed the 11 plus and will be starting Westcliff high school for boys in September.
I would like to praise Keely and the team for their fantastic support of our daughter in the year she attended Leigh Tutoring leading up to the 11+ exam. She passed the exam with flying colours and gained a place at her first choice school, Westcliff High School for Girls. Her scores exceeded our expectations. It proves that with a little effort, commitment and a small financial outlay tutoring is well worth it considering the rewards. My son is already making good progress with Leigh Tutoring ready for the exam next year and I hope that Keely and the girls are still about when my youngest takes the exam in 2022!! Once again, thanks from a very proud Dad.
A big thank you to the teachers for all the hard work they have done with our daughter over the past 2 years. Yesterday we learnt that not only did our daughter pass the 11+, she also secured a place at Westcliff High School for Girls! Considering we live well outside the catchment area, this is a massive achievement and without the support, guidance and teaching from Leigh Tutoring, this would never have been possible. The environment in which the children study is bright and spacious, and children are made to feel comfortable from the outset. Once again thank you, from all of us!
My 9 year old daughter has attended Leigh Tutoring for over a year now and her grasp of numeracy and literacy has increased enormously. The small class sizes and caring staff is something she has really responded to, and she always looks forward to the class. Thanks to all staff.
I would like to thank the staff at Leigh Tutoring for all their help leading up to the 11 plus exam. My daughter’s confidence has soared and the improvement in English and Maths is amazing. Even if she doesn’t pass her 11 plus I am happy that all the hard work has helped her school work and will stand her in good stead in her new secondary school.
