My son enjoyed the lessons with Ruth and he thought the lessons were very helpful. He also took several mock tests with Exeter Tutors. Ruth helped him with his weak areas based on the results. I highly recommend Ruth as a tutor and Exeter Tutors for the mock test.read more

Thanks Ruth. You have been patient and encouraging in equal measure, and your knowledge of the process has been massively helpful.

It`s the first time I have searched for a tutor via this type of website. Apprehensive at first, I have quickly realised that Ruth has a genuine interest and real passion for providing quality service. She has provided me with insightful feedback to my detailed questions that I had to begin with, as a parent of a young student. Communication with her has been easy, transparent and prompt right from the outset, and – most importantly – had a human touch. All this has helped me make my decision to go ahead with the tutor choice for our daughter. I appreciate the trial lesson she has been offered before making a permanent commitment; the tutor/student match seems to have "clicked" right away and we are now excited to continue tutoring on regular basis.Thank you, Ruth.read more

I would highly recommend Exeter Tutors for 11+ tuition. My son really enjoyed all of his sessions with Kirstie and her encouragement and support has been invaluable. The mock tests were also very helpful and the feedback we received from these enabled us to see which areas he needed to improve on. They were also excellent practice for the real exam.read more

Ruth at Exeter tutors was so helpful and managed to find us a great tutor (Mike) to help our son prepare for his 7+ exams. Mike was so patient as English is definitely not my sons favourite subject and managed to keep him engaged for an hour each week (no mean feat!). I'm happy to say that my son passed his 7+ exams too. I would definitely recommend Exeter Tutors.read more

Ruth from Exeter Tutors helped my 7 year old son with his handwriting, grammar and spelling. She was wonderful, giving him praise and encouragement. He really enjoyed his sessions with her and was excited to show me what he had learnt in each one. His School Teacher has already commented on the improvement in his handwriting. Our heartfelt thanks Ruth!read more

Ruth at Exeter Tutors is a fantastic teacher. When our son started lessons he had no confidence, and a fear of maths. Ruth was kind, patient, encouraging and thoughtful in her teaching methods. He will be starting secondary school in September with a deeper understanding of the fundamentals, confident and knowing that maths can be enjoyable! Our Exeter Tutors experience has been excellent from start to finish. We would highly recommend them.read more

I can't praise Catherine enough for being such a thoughtful and inspiring tutor for my child. She helped confidence building to get ideas in the brain down on paper for people to see, and then so much more in an extended period of fun learning and development. Five stars!read more

I would not hesitate to recommend Exeter Tutors. My son was tutored by Kate for his 11+ and albeit fairly last minute she was able to fit in around our hectic family schedule and she was happy to work along side us - guiding us as to what we should focus on with him so that she could focus on the bits we were not confident to do ourselves. My son warmed to her immediately and he achieved the results he wanted. Thank you Kate! The mock exams were also a very useful experience for him and definitely helped calm his nerves on the day itself.read more

Ruth was truly amazing! My daughter absolutely thrived off the back of the lessons. Ruth was extremely supportive and encouraging and has re-ignited our daughters belief in herself and given her the opportunity to pass the 11+ and choose her next school. The quality of the teaching was exceptional and better still our daughter loved every minute. Truly unique.. we can't recommend Ruth enough.read more
