My son had failed the prelim in November for both his science subjects prior to us engaging with Edinburgh Tutors. The good news is that he got 6 x A and 2 x B in the results which arrived this month. He moved from a fail in both sciences to 2 x B passes in his science subjects.
These are all the comments we have received unprovoked and "warts and all".
Rebecca was an excellent tutor, and Helen benefitted a lot from her time with her.
I really want to also say how pleased we are with both Olivia and Jenny. They have and are making a great impact with our son and he's feeling far more confident.
They are also very conscientious.
Thanks for your help again in supplying a tutor, Lorant was lovely and am sure has made a huge difference to Michael's chances of passing (fingers crossed!).
"I just wanted to say a big thank you to Jan for his excellent Higher Maths tuition this year - my daughter's confidence grew significantly and resulted in her achieving an A in her exam which she is absolutely thrilled with!"
Thank you. Both Tutors (Modern Studeis and Spanish) were excellent.
Just want to let you know that Jonathan achieved his 3 A's and is over the moon. Obviously we're thrilled and just want to congratulate David on his outstanding tutoring in Biology. Last summer Jonathan was sitting on a C at AS and David has brought him up to an A grade in all 5 modules. We couldn't have asked for better! You have a very special student there and we wish him enormous success in his field of medicine.
Sophie doing really well. Her Tutor Lisa was fantastic and really helped her build her confidence and develop her techniques with regard to answering questions.
Craig is an excellent tutor and a very nice person as well. I saw a difference in Jennifer from the first lesson. She is already much more confident about her English.
I just wanted to thank you Alicja and Fiona very much for helping my son get through his subject which had become a real block for him. He has just started Higher English and seems to be enjoying it. Fingers crossed!
I would like to let you know how pleased we were with Gavin's work. Despite having to study for exams himself he was committed, well prepared and enthusiastic in his work with Louise, and has helped her focus and come to grips with areas of both Maths and Chemistry. She is now more confident she can do well in her exams.
We are delighted with the service, Thomas is superb, inspirational and Grace really looks forward to working with him.
I would be delighted to support you and the Team in any way I can, and will not hesitate to recommend you to colleagues, families and friends.
I think Chris's tutoring probably saved Charlie from total meltdown on Higher Maths... from all accounts a very difficult exam... took all of the students by surprise. Thanks once again for your services, I will recommend you to friends, and probably be in contact before Advanced Highers next year!
Beth's tuition with Laura has been invaluable. Laura's patience, enthusiasm and engaging manner ensured that Beth enjoyed her tuition sessions and also gained the skills to tackle the exam with confidence.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, for your prompt response to my request for a tutor for my son. I was most impressed with Jonathan. He was friendly, polite and hardworking. Euan enjoyed the sessions, and found them extremely helpful. They certainly boosted his confidence.
I can't emphasise enough just how much we love Miss Robbie. She has taken my son on the most miraculous and fantastic educational journey and he adores her (as I do). Miss Robbie has such a special gift, an empathy and understanding of a child's mind. She is truly unique and incredibly precious.
I am just emailing you to let you know that my daughter had her last biology session with Graham this week as she was now finished her O' Levels. I just wanted to say how delighted we have been with Graham and we would recommend him to anyone. He has been reliable, knowledgeable and a pleasure to have in our home and we are delighted with the level of service you have provided for us.
My son has certainly found Jonas to be great and a super help. He is a really nice young man. Fingers crossed for the exams!
I would like to take the opportunity to say how impressed we were with Lucie's tutoring skills. Following a poor result in Maths prelim our daughter's confidence was at rock-bottom. Lucie established a good rapport from the outset and her calm, methodical and encouraging approach to her tutoring was exactly what Molly needed to give her faith in her ability to tackle the subject and inspire her to work hard for her exams. Our daughter came out of her Standard Grade exam saying that she had found it easy because she knew exactly how to tackle each question - and she has achieved a Grade 1 (up from 2/4 in the prelim). She is very happy and going forward to her fifth year with renewed enthusiasm.
Just getting back in touch to say that Tom achieved a 'B' pass in his Geography, up from a 'D' in his prelim, and all due I'm sure to Ferdia's excellent work! He has emailed her to let her know, and that he is therefore into Glasgow to study Zoology, after a gap year. We are all delighted!
Firstly Alicja, I must thank you for all your help with providing tutors to help Martha over the last couple of years. They have all been such a great help to her, and she did very well in her GCSE's. She has contacted them all individually to thank them for their help, and she became very fond of them.
"the two tutors we had were great and both of our children felt they had benefitted a lot from having the one to one sessions. Each of the tutors were friendly, helpful and were good at explaining the subject clearly. Thanks for your help!"
I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to Ian for all his help. My daughter went into her Biology exam feeling much more confident and very supported after all the work he did with her. His logical, thorough approach suited her very well and helped her to move through the revision syllabus easily. She also thoroughly enjoyed working with him every week as he made the lessons a very positive experience.
I would like to give positive feedback for one of our daughter's tutors - Aidan Thomson. Aidan was Elissa's Maths Tutor and was always reliable, patient, enthusiastic and encouraging. He offered extra sessions in the run up to the exam and even offered to text him, with any last minute questions - a great tutor.
My tutor was kind, friendly, very patient and helped me by setting homework that was thought-provoking and structured to strengthen my weaknesses: in particular, with timed essays. I would have no hesitation in recommending Edinburgh Tutors to my friends and other students.
I found the extra exercises and worksheets really boosted my confidence, while any mistakes I made were carefully explained.
I feel that the tuition I received was the main reason I was able to obtain a grade A in the final exam. Last year I got a C, and my tutor made me realise that I am capable of achieving much more.
I felt very confident after a few lessons with my tutor. I am very glad I had this chance to work and learn and without my tutor I would not have gained solid 3.
My tutor is always friendly and makes the two hours a week as interesting as possible.
My tutor was extremely helpful and understanding, and as a result I felt that I was improving with every session.
