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 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, 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 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.

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 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 more

Ruth was truly amazing! My daughter absolutely thrived off the back of the lessons.

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

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 more
13:46 05 Oct 20
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.

I have had support from Exeter tutors all though my GCSEs and A levels and I don’t have a single bad word to say, the quality of the teaching has been outstanding throughout. When I joined Exeter tutors I had one to one sessions which really helped to massively bring my grades up and also improve my confidence. I also attended the GCSE revision workshops during half term which consisted of small class learning and lots of exam practice. These workshops prepared me for my upcoming exams and helped to improve my exam question technique. I also had one to one teaching throughout the entirety of my A levels with helped me hugely to stay on top of content despite the disruption of COVID, without Exeter Tutors I would not have been able to take my mini assessments this year with confidence I did. I always felt like my lessons were a safe space to ask questions and go over content which I wasn’t confident about after going learning it in school/college. I have nothing but thanks to give to Exeter Tutors and I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of more

We used Exeter Tutors to help our daughter as with a combination of things including covid she was struggling both academically and with confidence. I think being frank and honest I would say that a tutor is not the cheapest in terms of cost but in terms of value we have found it a superb investment in not only our daughters future but more importantly for us right now, her immediately confidence and interaction in the classroom. Over some time now we have seen her enjoyment of school increase dramatically and she is slowly making progress catching up. We love hearing about her school days now, previously she wouldn't share anything about her day. I think from personal experience I would definitely recommend Exeter Tutors.

For us it was a lot more pressured second time round, he really wanted to get in where his brother had. Thank you Mike and all so much for all your more

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

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 Hart. Stephanie 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 more

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.

We have been receiving support from Exeter Tutors for a number of months now for our daughters' Maths support - and soon to be GCSE maths exam. The objective was to fill the gap in knowledge that we as parents did not have to support her in terms of maths, and to lessen her stress which was paramount as she has special education needs and needed the extra support. The school was not able to fulfil this I am sorry to say. It wasn't a 'nice to have', but a necessity in our case. The classes in our case were delivered remotely and have been worth their weight in gold in terms of stress relief, never mind the growing confidence and knowledge my daughter has in Maths. She also attended the half-term exam workshops in maths and science this year which were also very well delivered and highly more
