Ruth was incredibly helpful from start to finish- finding us a tutor at short notice, helping out... with resources and being supportive in between. The tutor we had, Jennifer, was matched very well with our daughter who responded to Jennifer's calm, friendly and patient approach.read more

We have been having tuition with Exeter Tutors for a couple of years now for our daughter, and have... found them to be so professional, and a pleasure to deal with, always aiming to help and go the extra mile. Most importantly, the sheer quality of tuition provided by Miranda (Science) and Eva (maths) is of the highest quality, significantly helping my daughter to improve her grades dramatically. If you are wondering whether to get extra tuition for your child, do not hesitate to contact Exeter Tutors!read more

We had an excellent experience with Exeter Tutors. Our tutor, George, was brilliant with our son,... and the advice and administrative support provided by Ruth and Sebastian was excellent. Our son also found the 11 plus mocks really helpful, and those were also run very effectively and smoothly.read more

I had Eva as my maths tutor and I cant recommend her enough. I am 20 so had many maths teachers... over the years and she is by far the best one I’ve had, she made me look forward to each lesson and enjoy maths again. I am autistic so my brain works differently to most but when I didn’t understand she would re word it and come up with another way to explain it, no matter how many attempts it took. Best maths teacher ever!!read more

We decided to work with a tutor after the horror of home schooling left us all with a touch of... PTSD. Exeter Tutors quickly set us up with a regular slot with a tutor who I'm sure would be fine for some kids, but wasn't the right fit for our son. When we approached Exeter Tutors to review the arrangement, Ruth was very receptive to our feedback and facilitated a transition to Stephanie. She has a lively and dynamic style that keeps our son engaged. She rolls with his injections of humour, and swiftly brings him back on track, and gives lots of positive feedback so that he often comes bouncing out of the sessions feeling proud of himself. After working with Stephanie, our son was offered a place at the grammar school of his choice.read more

I have been very impressed with Exeter Tutors having used them twice now to guide my two daughters... through the 11+ process with success.

In particular the past year had challenges with face to face tuition for many months. However, the tutor Mike managed to put my daughter at ease and build a great relationship with her over Zoom. This was strengthened when face to face sessions were possible.

The mock 11+ exams are really helpful as well.

I would recommend Exeter Tutors.

Firstly I want to say huge thanks to Sebastian and Ruth for finding the perfect tutor , Sabrina... for my daughter, and the professional support through preparing the 11+ Exam for the grammar schools!My daughter did really well from the grammar schools' 11+ entry exam. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our wonderful tutor, Sabrina for making this possible! Sabrina is a very loving , kind and experienced teacher. My daughter was immediately very comfortable with Sabrina at the first lesson and found her teaching methods very easy to follow, she did not want to miss a single lesson ! Sabrina monitored my daughter's progress very closely and altered her teaching plan accordingly , which was extremely helpful.My daughter took a series of mock exams run by Sabastian. The mock exams were professionally organised virtually and in class, the results were sent to the parents in 24 hours. I found that the mock exams were so useful for the students to have a real feel of the actual exams. Thank you Sebastian for your hard work!All in all Exeter Tutors is a professional, trustworthy tutoring company! Couldn't recommend Exeter Tutors more highly!read more
