Exeter Tutors have been working with my daughter (Year 9) to improve maths confidence and it has been such a boost for her. The lessons are tailored, focussed but relaxed and she feels so comfortable- she has even said that she enjoys maths (unheard of in this house!). Lessons have been delivered online during lockdown and this has worked really well. Would definitely recommend this company.read more

The support we have received from Exeter Tutors has been fantastic, from them finding the right tutor for my daughter to the high quality support for her learning that she has received. Not only that, but in these difficult times, her tutor always takes time to notice how she is and to support her well being, which is very much appreciated. I can't recommend them highly enough.read more

My daughter initially had tutoring for GCSEs and now for A Level Chemistry. It has really boosted her confidence in the subject. The tutors are really helpful and approachable and have gone the extra mile to make sure she properly understands the topics.read more

When our daughter announced she wanted to study Classics, my first thought was how? However, a quick search found Exeter Tutors, what a find! They put us in touch with Mike Beer, a hugely experienced Classics specialist. He put together a programme giving an overview of the topic, advised on available resources and a plan for going forward. Exeter Tutors were quick, responsive and communicated quickly, I would certainly reccommend using them.read more

We were very happy to have Mike as our daughter’s tutor for the 11 plus. Mike was very supportive throughout the whole process, tailoring content to our daughter’s strengths and weaknesses, providing additional materials through the letterbox, and making sure lessons continued throughout all the challenges of 2020! Mike helped build our daughter’s confidence as well as her knowledge - giving her the outlook she needed to handle the test day and ultimately pass the test. Thank you Mike!read more

Couldn't recommend Exeter Tutors more highly. Catherine was a wonderful tutor, patient, empathetic, conscientious, and really good at phasing in challenging work in a supportive way. We were a bit anxious embarking on tutoring, worrying that it might be a bit of a pushy thing to be doing, but it has enormously benefited my son (Y5) at a time where sadly mainstream education was unable to cater for his needs. Exeter Tutors (Ruth and Seb) were also brilliant on both admin, communication, and the couple of mock exams we did. Overall an incredibly positive experience.read more

Ruth, I cannot express in words the gratitude I feel towards the amazing support you have given to my daughter in her 11+ preparation. Truly exceptional! You sought out gaps in her learning, expertly targeted material to address those gaps, and gave her a boost and confidence to achieve at the highest levels. It is true learning in the fullest sense – delivered in a calming assured manner. My daughter is now more self-assured and has control of her learning and the confidence to push forward new boundaries. When you need a Mary Poppins to help enthuse and support your children this is the place to go. Highly experienced diligent teachers providing strategic support to help with your children to develop them as young people.read more

Fantastic and professional service throughout. Our daughter has been tutored by Mike, whom she took to from the very first lesson. Mike had a great approach to our daughter’s individual needs – she responded well to his patient, calm and encouraging teaching style, relaxed but focused atmosphere, and was also able to apply his practical advice during tests and exam. She was looking to each and every lesson on a Friday evening!Ruth and Sebastian are experts in organising 11+ mock exams, the value of which we cannot praise enough. Quick and detailed feedback on each tested area, as well as the close-to-real exam environment, were most certainly an invaluable preparation for the real event.Today we have learnt of our daughter having been accepted to the grammar school of her choice and we cannot be grateful enough to the professionals who have helped make this become reality – thank you Ruth and Sebastian. Thank you Mike!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

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 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

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

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

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
