What people say about us...

I found Sebastian extremely personable and professional to deal with. He discussed our needs and requirements and then accompanied us to the first appointment for introduction...the tutors gave guidance from their own knowledge and experience which, was extremely useful. I would have no reservations in recommending this company, they are excellent, down to earth and really easy to deal with...

Linda R-W (Parent of GCSE Maths/Science student)
I would strongly recommend Ruth - she was very flexible and accommodative. Ruth helped my daughter to focus at the relevant bits for the exam, which she passed under her guidance.

Divik S (Parent of Entrance exam student)
I would have no reservations in recommending Ruth as a tutor. She has been professional in all respects. I find her structured approach deeply reassuring and I'm impressed at how she applies a gently nurturing approach to get the best from the children.

Helena W (Parent of 11+ student)
Exeter tutors have been excellent in preparing my son for 11+ exams. He made it through both local grammar school entrance tests. Ruth was particularly nurturing and instilled confidence besides teaching strategies for self directed learning and tackling the exams. I will recommend Exeter tutors very highly.

Jasjeet S (Parent of 11+ student)
Thank you so much for all of your help over the last couple of terms. My son has suggested on several occasions that he would really like to continue coming to sessions with you after the 11+ exams, which I think is testament to how much he has enjoyed seeing you. I have been surprised at just how much he has improved recently, and I have very much valued your ability to hone in on the areas that he finds particularly challenging.

Sally J (Parent of 11+ student)
Ruth offered a professional and friendly service that prepared my daughter brilliantly for the grammar school entrance tests. She took the tests feeling confident and prepared, we are over the moon with the results of the exam! Thank you to Ruth for making Ava feel welcome and relaxed when in your care. Would highly recommend.

Laura l-L (Parent of 11+ student)
We arranged weekly chemistry tutoring for our daughter through Exeter Tutors Ltd. Her tutor has been excellent and has really helped her to gain a better understanding of difficult areas. The first time we met her tutor, Mr Swana made sure he was on hand to introduce us personally and he has been very helpful in arranging dates and times, holiday breaks, etc. Invoicing is very straightforward - done via email on a monthly basis. I would recommend their excellent service.

Carrie J (Parent of A' level Chemistry student)
Ruth helped our daughter with her preparation for an 11+ exam. Ruth was excellent. She was encouraging, structured the tutoring very well, and fun to work learn with.

Greg R (Parent of 11+ student)
We sought tuition for our daughter in GCSE level biology, chemistry and physics after a period of time off school left her some way short of the grades she would require to do her chosen subjects at college. She was immediately very comfortable with Mr Swana and found his teaching methods very easy to understand. We also found him very accommodating and flexible when arranging lessons. With Mr Swana's help our daughter achieved the grades she required. Would definitely recommend.

Gary P (Parent of GCSE Science student)
I have been going to Exeter Tutor Ltd for the last 6 months now learning written English, with the help of Sebastian I am slowly getting over the fear of English. He has a good way of explaining the concept of day to day English. I am able to understand English and more importantly I can remember it. If the atmosphere was like this when I was at school I would have done so much better in written English. If you struggle with written English or want to improve it, I can highly recommend Exeter Tutors to you.

Andy R (Adult learner)
Extremely pleased with the help given to my daughter at the science and maths workshops. She thoroughly enjoyed them and gained some great knowledge and tips. Would highly recommend Exeter Tutors.
I strongly believe the sessions you ran helped her gain confidence as well as knowledge.

Sarah F (Parent of Student on Science/Maths Revision Workshops)
Professionally organised and very supportive sessions - highly recommend
