What our supermums say

Jess Howliston

“My son often gets nervous doing new things. He felt so much better about attending sessions after the 15-minute introduction meeting with his tutor. She put his mind at ease.

I honestly think the biggest credit I can give TuitionWorks is that when my son came off his first session, he asked me when his next one was and said he was looking forward to it! Coming from an 11-year-old boy who I often struggle to get to do any homework, that it high praise indeed.”

Claire Jacobs

“Booking can be done online or via telephone, which I found super easy to do. I completed an enquiry on TuitionWorks’ website and received a call that same day. My son found the assessment quite easy to follow, and even said it was quite fun!

His tutor was warm and welcoming, which alleviated any nerves, while the whiteboard was his favourite part of the lesson. It felt great that I was listened to as a parent, and how my son was included in all decisions.”

Jade Lloyd

“I like the really responsive Customer Success Team who contact you within one working day and answer any questions you have. Reminders and a link to your lesson are sent before your scheduled time. The whole set up is efficient and very professional. The TuitionWorks Whiteboard is easy to navigate, use and learn on.

Of his lesson, my son said: ‘I was worried it would make me feel not clever. But instead, I have finished feeling really proud. I feel smart.

Laura Beresford

“My son started off by completing his assessment. After each question you can check your answer and get a teacher’s explanation so you can understand where you made an error.  I liked this function as you can see immediately how you should have answered and the reasoning.
