Tutoring all subjects and levels

We help students aiming for places at selective grammar and independent schools face the 11+ and entrance exams with confidence.

Primary school pupils anxious about SATs, meanwhile, are given a great confidence boost with personal tuition.

The stress of GCSEs and A Levels is greatly alleviated with one-to-one tuition and coaching in study skills and exam techniques.

A number of students also benefit greatly from ongoing support throughout their school years, especially if they struggle with literacy or numeracy or have dyslexia or SEN.

We are also very happy to provide individual tuition or tutoring for small groups of home-educated children based in  Northumberland/Tyne and Wear.
