Mr L London
Following GCSE results day last week, we wanted to thank you for the maths and science and English tutoring in the last year you provided for M. He got some very good results. M achieved: 100% A/A*+ equivalents across all 11 GCSEs.
Mr O Nigeria
K has met and exceeded the requirements to take up his A level place. Thank you so much to everyone at Ivy Education for all your help.
Mrs T Brent Cross
Trausti has been perfect. He is so organized, helpful and knowledgeable and very patient. He clearly has a deep understanding of the curriculum and teaches it in such a way that my daughter has really improved significantly and is now on course to achieve the grade she wants in Maths. What has been so impressive is his ability to identify the areas that require work and after assessing to improve these "dodgy" areas with practice papers and tuition. He is meticulous and that is what is required at this stage - he is much appreciated!
Mrs M Bromley
We only have praise for Louise. W is excited about Louise's arrival and looks forward to his tutoring. This is fantastic as we have previously met with resistance from W for this length of lesson time. Louise understood W's learning style during their first session. W is engaged, happy and learning! We are very grateful to you putting us in contact with Louise and extremely happy with how W is progressing.
Mrs F Chiswick
We were delighted with Christen's approach, execution and general delivery. Our daughter finds it hard to get excited about a number of 'dry' science subjects and concentration at 11 years of age is not her strong point but Christen worked hard and appeared to keep G focused. Please thank Christen from us all.
Mrs C, parent of A-Level student Camberwell
We found Tom to be incredibly professional and thoughtful for such a young teacher. A hugely enjoyed his first lessons with him in the summer. Tom was on time, relaxed, thorough and interesting and A came away excited by what he had learnt.
Mrs R Clapham
We are so thrilled with C's progress already, he really enjoys his sessions with Tom and genuinely looks forward to them, which is fantastic. Tom has managed to bring alive an entire subject which C had previously thought very dull (English!). Thank you!
Mrs G Hampstead Heath
We are very happy with Luiza and G is comfortable with her teaching style. I am very happy with Ivy Education, it was easy to get in touch with you, you are well informed about the current education system and Luiza was punctual and polite.
Mrs M Bayswater
Emma was a fantastic tutor and had a really good rapport with C. She was very encouraging and supportive. She explained things in a clear and understandable way and C really grasped concepts under her tutelage. I would highly recommend her.
Mrs C Balham
Both absolutely fabulous! I'm sure we will be booking both of them again! Thank you for putting us in touch with two such delightful tutors.
Mrs S Belgravia
It's all been going very well. Marc took the time to really get to know M and I think this "bond" is helping M learn from him.
Mrs C Battersea
All is going well. A is now in the bilingual class and his teacher thinks he is doing fine, we keep working on spelling and writing. Melissa is very detailed on the work she is doing with him.
Mrs C Victoria
I met with Mrs C yesterday and she updated me on Y's progress. The family are extremely happy with the tutors and Y's results at school have improved noticeably. So they are very grateful to you at Ivy!
Mrs A Wandsworth
Poppy is an amazing person and fantastic teacher! We really enjoyed having her.
Mrs B Clapham
Max was great, he really was. Delightful and impressive and J liked working with him. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others. Definitely will need his services again this Easter hols.
Mrs G, parent of student sitting Common Entrance exams West Hampstead
J has greatly improved in comprehension and creative writing thanks to Robin, who has proved an excellent teacher"I know J will greatly miss Robin as he always enjoyed his lessons with him and Robin always managed to make the lessons. A big thank you to Robin for all his help with J if I do not see him in the near future.
Mrs D-B Clapham
Harmish impressed me; a very focussed together young man, as good at discussing his approach and my daughter's progress with me as he was at engaging with the youngster herself. He dealt with her teenage attitude incredibly well, got her on task and kept her there for the entire session. He told me he is used to teenage girls and often helps his younger twin sisters with their work". Clearly something which stands him (and them I suspect) in good stead! He shared some helpful ideas and materials with us as well! I highly recommend Hamish!
Mrs C Nigeria
I really do appreciate you keeping in touch with me. M's results came out on the 13th and she got admission into the University of Kent to study Law. J got his French result last week and made a B which he is extremely happy about as French has been a struggle for him. Thank you so much for your best wishes for him tomorrow. I will certainly contact you with the good news. Do have a lovely evening and thanks again for your good wishes. Ivy Education have been instrumental in the strides my children are making and for this we thank you all immensely.
Mrs E Windsor
May I also add how fantastic Delphine was, especially for English, and she was always willing and prepared for every lesson, she even offered to mark essays and answer any last minute questions I had in her own time regardless of the time of day. Highly recommended. And thank you for the great communication, I'll be sure to recommend your services.
Mrs C Dulwich
A has now had two sessions with Joseph and is really enjoying them. She has already increased in confidence in the areas covered during the sessions and I hope that this will continue next year too.
Mrs E Belgravia
I just wanted to let you know I was pleased with Ellyn and impressed by her ability to break down the concepts for T. He says she cleared up a lot of issues for him.
Mrs F Dulwich
N seems to be making good progress with Joseph. Joseph is lovely, always punctual and polite and flexible with timings, N really likes him which is half the battle and says that he explains things really well. Thank you for checking in.
Mrs I Chiswick
Many thanks for your feedback and please pass on our thanks to Tom. A has found her first tutorial sessions to be very helpful and enjoys the sessions with Tom.
Mrs F-A Essex
I also wanted to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Vincent. He hit it off with T from day one and was an excellent tutor for him - motivating and teaching him but they also had fun together. T never once complained about having a session with Vincent which is a big achievement. Thank you
Mrs C Richmond
With Delphine tuition with SW has improved very much with regards to his school. We are very happy to have her on board.
Mrs G Wandsworth
I am glad to say that Alex was a big hit, and H really learned a lot in his first lesson.
Mrs H Knightsbridge
We were very happy with your service. Alastair was very accommodating and helpful, even though I left it so late in arranging a tutor this time for my son J on our trip to London. J just loved Robin! He made it somehow fun for him and J wants to read the books that Robin recommended.
Mrs H Ealing
All went well. The kids were inspired by him, and I have no doubt they will learn plenty over coming days. I have asked him if he is available for a couple of days next week. David has been great. The kids have achieved a lot and enjoyed the process. I asked him back for two more 3 hour sessions.
Mrs M Clapham
I do want to tell you how helpful B found Alex to be. He is so charming and appears to care so much which is delightful. B loved his sessions with him.
Mrs H Chelsea
He made a tremendous effort preparing each boy their own beautiful journal. Each journal focusing on the remit I gave him (one reading the other writing). All in clever and creative ways. So, I was v pleased as I really did not want 'dry' (boring!) tutoring. David seems to have fit the bill for creative and out of the box thinking. So, thank you as it seems to be a good match.
Mrs L Jersey
Andy is a great teacher. J definitely found all the sessions helpful and Andy went out of his way to ensure she got the most out of each session, even returning one day to pick up a paper to mark that she hadn't been able to finish in time. Many thanks for all your help and I will definitely be putting the word out and about in Jersey about Ivy Education.
Mrs W Wandsworth
I have been meaning to contact you to say thank you for providing Alex to help with T's maths. He is a very nice personable and conscientious young man and he and T got on really well. She definitely felt much more confident by the end, so let's hope all the hard work from both parties has paid off!
Mrs M Paddington
Emma was an excellent tutor. She established a very positive and friendly rapport with my son and he connected well with her, responded to her teaching and felt very comfortable working with her. I would highly recommend her.
Mrs M Chelsea
Just to say thank you so much for asking David to see H. Needless to say he was a big hit and H loved his time with him. So much so - it was his favourite part of the weekend ranked above his beloved tennis, swimming and the lego exhibition!
Mrs K Kensington
Thank you very much for looking after J. He thoroughly enjoyed it and as we are assessing his tutoring requirements going forwards and are likely to be in touch again shortly.
Mrs M Wandsworth
I did her English exam yesterday without tears!! Amy was fantastic, and gave I the confidence she needed. I only wished I had organised her earlier!!
Dr N Acton
Akilah was so great and actually did such a good job that S now feels confident to carry on without tuition! We will be back in touch should that prove to be overly optimistic!
Mrs R, parent of GCSE student Wandsworth
We have always found Alex to be a brilliant tutor. W definitely benefits from the limited time spent with Alex and it has always been a very positive experience.
Mrs P Notting Hill
Both Alex and Sally are delightful, warm, and terrifically inspiring teachers. We all enjoyed them coming to the flat. Alex brings a whiteboard which makes maths more fun, and he is like a big brother to the kids. The three usually chat after a lesson. Sally and S click beautifully. Sally uses theatrical voices to motivate S's creativity.
Mrs L-J Chelsea
H has been raaaaaaaaaving about Jack ever since they met on Friday!!! He has SO many wonderfully creative ideas in terms of how to "teach" P using the natural environment on Harbour Island shells, treasure hunts etc etc. We are SO excited and full of anticipation. Thank you SO much Al, you are the best. Literally!
Mrs T White City
We have been so happy with Michael, C has improved noticeably and is making fantastic progress, scoring above average and beyond expectation for Maths and English in her end of year tests. We look forward to working with Michael further. He is fantastic! Many thanks
Mrs W Balham
Lizzie has made the past two weeks such a happy journey, she has been more than professional and thorough throughout and consequently E has tackled these exams with so much determination and confidence. To be honest I am rather in awe of what they have achieved together. I only hope that when we next need some help with revision that she will be available.
Mrs W Kent
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for yesterday. Z is so very pleased with what she was able to do with Bea and she thought Bea was marvellous.
Mrs S Wandsworth
Thanks for recommending Gavin. He was a fantastic tutor for both my kids. His calm approach was certainly appreciated by both, and I have no doubt that the work they did with him has been of great benefit. Gavin is very personable and easy to have in the house and the kids seemed to be very happy in his company, which is key.
Mrs A London
Marisa is probably the best tutor we have ever had. She is professional, well presented and more importantly totally understands what L needs. L cannot wait for her to come and last week she asked if she could do an extra half hour! Unheard of!! She is a remarkable tutor, her sessions are fun and L is learning fast.
Mrs H Sevenoaks
Ford has continued to be great with A. She won the school prize for excellence in prep school this year. That's a complete first for her to win any academic prize at all and to win the top one over all the year groups was great. Long may it last! She's gained immensely in confidence and has been applying herself which teachers have noticed in both class and on tests. She responds well to his teaching methods and calm patient demeanour. He's been a great find for us.
Mrs Y Hammersmith
I wanted to share some good news with you. L received an offer from City! He's so happy and super excited to go. Thank you so much for your support throughout this. It's been a journey and I couldn't have stayed sane without the team, esp. Eliza!
Mr L Clapham
Today we received M's common entrance results. He scored over 70% in all subjects, with an average across all subjects of 80%. I have let all his tutors know his individual marks to thank them. He scored spectacularly well in RE with an incredible 100%, French with 91%, Latin 89%, geography 85%, Greek 80%, Maths 76%, Science 73% avg, History and English a respectable 70%. Thank you again so much for all your efforts.
Mrs L, parent of 13+ student Kensington
I have already told the tutors individually but wanted to let you know O is definitely entering Stowe thanks to his amazing results! Am beyond proud and happy with his results. I wanted to say again a big thank you to all the amazing tutors who have contributed to O's success. It's been a long year to organise all of these tuitions and to be able to rely on them to commit to O and see his progress from October to January then from March to now. I have enjoyed seeing them weekly and cannot recommend them more to anyone. True professionals and teachers. This needs to be said as so often people forget what it takes to teach these kids who are tired and stressed from these exams. O has understood the importance of discipline and regular revisions and his hard work has paid off.
Mrs C, parent of year 4 student Wandsworth
Tom was AMAZING!! S loved him. Prior to Tom's arrival our nanny was doing the role - lots of rows. Tom made learning enjoyable for Sebbie again. We loved him!
Mrs B Kensington
Joseph was great with D. They did an hour and a half, and D didn't moan about that (I would never be able to get him to sit for that long!). I could tell that D really liked him and he was so pleased with himself afterwards, and felt like he had really achieved a lot. So, thank you so much". he is going to be a big help!
Mrs D-G Kensington
Alastair, I wanted to say thank you for teaching the boys and looking after all of L's work during my absence. You are doing such a great job I do not even get to see it, given L finishes it all in record time! And I am super impressed with L's additions.
Mrs Y Chiswick
Alastair and his team provide a wealth of knowledge and insight into entrance exam procedures, which was gratefully received as this was our first time going through such a process. The tutor provided was not only encouraging and enthusiastic but also understanding and patient and always had time to talk through any queries we had. The support on interview preparation was top notch, and arranged at quite short notice, and helped to calm our nerves when we felt anything but calm. When we first decided to go down the route of putting our son in for 8+ exams at some of London's top boys' schools we hadn't realised how stressful the process would be. Alastair was always responsive, composed and gave much needed practical advice along the way. We really couldn't have asked for more. We will be back when it is time to go through the process all over again with our second child!
Mrs G Kent
T took the Winchester College (scholarship) election exam and got an academic exhibition. Maths was C grade and English was an A grade. The maths tuition helped a great deal in him achieving his award.
Mrs H-S Wandsworth
I cant thank your team enough for all their help and yours, A is very chuffed with himself and Stowe here we come!!! And please can you pass my / our huge thanks to Susie and Sophie - truly great!!! Although they think it is all over, we have G next who is 11! So will be in touch again very soon I am sure!
Mrs R Wandsworth
T got an offer from Epsom College which we are all thrilled about. Virginia was such a big help with preparing T for his pre-tests, I have already let her know the good news and personally thanked her!
Mrs V, parent of 9+ and 11+ students South London
Everything is going well with Jessica. L appreciates her very much. She is very kind and calm and I think this is important for L. It looks like L is improving a lot. We can also recommend Sophie, my daughter's tutor who is preparing her for the 9+ exam entry at Alleyn's school. Sophie is a Primary teacher so she definitely knows what she is doing. But beyond that, T is a complete fan of hers! Sophie is a very organised person, she is always smiling and makes T's subjects more coherent than expected. We are very pleased!
Mrs T Kensington
We definitely want Louise for half term. A is really enjoying working with her she seems to be able to strike the perfect balance of getting the work done in a way that A almost does not realise he is learning and sees it as fun, which with a very full on school environment at the moment prepping for 8+ is exactly what we need.
Mrs T Chelsea
J loved Sophie the tutor you sent home to us. She was professional she helped get J to remember everything and put notes into his revision book. He felt she helped him progress a lot in the 2hrs a day over the week she was with him. He even preferred her to his old tutor. J even got into his chosen choice of school Harrodian! We are happy to say and we had positive feedback from them saying how well he did. I just wish we had used Ivy Education a year before a lot more to have prepared for Eton, as he went there unprepared unfortunately. Although they may still give J another chance to retake it, and if so we will definitely be using Ivy Education again!
Mrs Y Wandsworth
We had just moved to the UK and Chloe spent the Summer going through the syllabus with A, allowing her to have a confident start to the new school. She was great at familiarising A with the syllabus in a fun and joyful way.
Mrs B Streatham Hill
First impressions were of incredible preparation and sound knowledge of the field. She is very punctual, polite, friendly and has taken the perfect position with both twins to already boost their confidence and get them positively engaged.
Mrs J Wandsworth
I would like to express my gratitude and deepest appreciation to Ivy Education especially Ella & Xanthe for assisting M in his new education environment (granted, there was a lot of catching up to do before this, praise God that he is doing well & up-to-date with the school syllabus!).
Mrs J Wandsworth
Gavin was a great tutor and managed to engage L well and encourage him beyond his age bracket. We would highly recommend Gavin and should we need tuition in future we would be happy to have Gavin again. Gavin was a great role model for L who is much more confident about writing and in his Maths.
Mr B London
E was an excellent choice for A. Knowing that he is a kinaesthetic learner she went to great lengths to enhance his learning through diagrams and activities. She also ensured plenty of breaks when she saw A's concentration lagging. The proof for me was seeing A really enjoy the lessons which is great given that Biology & Chemistry are subjects he finds really challenging
Mr N London
He really warmed to her - she is bright and clear, but most importantly relates to him as a student: the way he thinks, the motivations he has, the issues he's facing. So she is focussed on helping him where he needs the help (rather than just telling him what she thinks all students ought to know). Perhaps this is in part because she is still studying herself? Anyway, we were delighted with her. Thank you!
Mrs S Balham
T had Camilla as a bit of an intensive blast for Geography and she was absolutely fantastic. She was so jolly and great fun and T says that she really helped him understand a lot of things he had doubts about. We could not recommend her highly enough! She is brilliant!
Mrs B Fulham
M did brilliantly in her GCSEs and in the subjects where she got extra help from Ivy Education she exceeded expectations, she somehow managed to get an A in French and got double A* in Science and an A* in Maths. Jacques gave her a real confidence boost and despite the short period of time he had to work with her he managed to find the key areas to work on to pull up her grade. Klevis equally worked on her confidence and clarified areas in Chemistry in particular where she was in a muddle.
Mrs L Clapham
Will has been great - very diligent, compassionate and encouraging. He helped L tremendously. Her predictive grade for Math is a 'A' which will need to tested against her results in August but this is a huge improvement on her previous grades. We were very happy overall and would love to have Will tutoring L in the future.
Mrs C North London
Fatma is an amazing tutor, words can hardly express her talent. My daughter A is very comfortable with her. We are highly impressed with her teaching skill. A was struggling with Economics but Fatma's way of teaching makes it much easier for A to understand the subject. Fatma is not only an excellent tutor, she is also very polite, very accommodating and punctual with her timing. I am so fortunate to have such a good tutor who has been a good example for a teenager like A. She has motivated her to get ready for a good university, as well as to work hard for a brighter future. My all best wishes for Fatma. Thank you so much Ivy Education for providing me with such good tutor.
Mrs W Balham
We cannot thank you enough for all your help in making sure E had the perfect tutor for her revision. Becky was a complete star in encouraging and nurturing her towards her exams and the time and effort has 100% paid off. We are totally thrilled with the results and look forward to working with Becky again next term. As a result I now have a much more confident and enthusiastic daughter. THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Mrs B Putney Putney
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for putting me in touch with David. M says he has been brilliant and she is really getting to grips with Chemistry! Which is good!!! He was always on time and friendly and I have said I will give him a reference if he needs one. Thank you so much again, I really appreciate you helping us out.
Mrs C Dulwich
Thank you for your good luck wishes for Annie's mocks. She got an A in one Psychology paper and is still awaiting the result of the other.
Mrs E Wandsworth
We are absolutely delighted with M's results - thanks also to Alex for his amazing work - M got an A* in her Physics and Chemistry. We are absolutely delighted and have texted Alex directly to say a big thank you!!
Mrs B, parent of AS-level student Clapham
J was poor on the Gov Pol side prior to me getting Sean involved. Sean focused on that and he got a fab A there so well done Sean! J is continuing with Gov Pol, so sure we will need his services next Easter again, so please can J be first in line for him!
Mrs F Dulwich
I have been meaning to email you to say how pleased we are with the hard work and dedication that Lora is putting into pushing D through AS-level French. You are right to describe her enthusiasm as infectious and she has gone to a lot of trouble to figure out the AQA specifications. Fingers crossed we can do enough to ensure that he gets a reasonable grade in the summer.
Mrs B Notting Hill
I'm glad to say that young T reports back very favourably on the weekend's work. He had his first Maths exam on Monday and tells me that it went well and that the preparation he received from Tom was excellent and just what he needed. I had a short phone call with Tom afterwards and was impressed by his manner and the detail of feedback he was able to give me on the pupil. Very useful for me to pass on to his new American school. I wouldn't have any hesitation in approaching Tom for Maths tuition in the future. Thank you for sending me someone so good.
Mrs B Barnes
I for one am very happy with the start that the girls have made with Tom. They seem to have enjoyed the sessions which considering it is Physics and R's belief that she cannot 'do' Physics is a fantastic start.
Mrs C Dulwich
Joseph has been an enormous help to A. He has given her confidence as well as identifying areas that required further work. As a result she completed the first part of her Maths iGCSE last week and was able tackle it with a new found confidence and in a relatively calm way. She is about to have a session with Joseph today which will help sort out some last minute areas that she is unsure of. We are very grateful that the tutoring has been successful and will certainly be in touch should we require tutoring in the future.
Dr D South London
We are delighted with the boys 'results. Please let Nora know that W got an A* in his French and could you tell David that G got an A in his Spanish. The boys found both tutors extremely helpful and approachable. I have nothing but praise for both of them and would highly recommend them.
Mrs K Clapham
Many thanks for your lovely email re S's iGCSE results. Her final count is 8 A*'s, 2 A's and 1 B for Maths! Which is a fantastic result. Alex sweetly texted S to see how she did which was very kind of him. She started back at Kings on Tuesday and is hard to believe she is in lower sixth! Her A-level choices are: French, Philosophy, English Literature and Biology. Many thanks for all your support for S and will be in touch if she needs any further help in the future.
Ms J Belgravia
I was particularly pleased with Chris, who was extremely helpful throughout the process - not only was he very well organised about our classes but he also offered advice and tips for what to focus on and how best to study for the other topics. Charlotte was also very helpful; as soon as we got into a groove and she had a proper chance to delve into the BPP syllabus she was fantastic and very supportive. Both Chris and Charlotte were flexible and pretty much always accessible to me, which was wonderful. I would definitely have them as tutors again.
Mrs K Clapham
S has really found all her sessions with Alex very useful indeed. Her mocks start tomorrow so I did mention to Alex that once she gets her results I will let you both know. Alex is a lovely young man and a great tutor. He is punctual, reliable, very organised and thorough. He explains everything to S and then makes her get on with it. He always gives feedback and positively encouraging and just gets her! S really likes him and says he really helps her understand everything much more. I have found Ivy Education and yourself to be very professional - you always follow up for feedback and always try to customise your service to meet each person's individual requirements. (Not easy I am sure at times). I do think it also helps from your prospective - as you know the pressures on these students from the schools they attend and also the standard from the parents - especially when they have been through a system like Thomas's!
Mrs C, parent of AS-level student Dulwich
It's all going great. We have nothing but praise for Richard and B's school is impressed with how well he is doing - he scored highly in the two AS level tests he did earlier in the term, which is impressive given that he has only been doing the work since the summer.
Mrs K Clapham
I just wanted to let you know that Hester was absolutely brilliant. She was just what C needed and I think she really made a difference. Thank you very much for organising for her to see us. With C's English Language done and dusted and English Literature next week we have stopped seeing her, but I would definitely recommend her to others.
Mr O London
I passed the Numeracy Skills Day first time thanks to the great support of Carolyn. She really has been fantastic, very patient and a positive influence on enabling me to get this great result.
Mrs W Wandsworth
I'm pleased to say that E achieved A*, A*, A, and her place at Oxford. The A was in French and we were hugely relieved it wasn't lower. Sophie was wonderful and I'm sure gave E the confidence she needed and some vital consolidation which enabled her to achieve this result. R managed a B in his GCSE French which again was a huge relief and we have nothing but praise for the help Sophie gave him. He had 2 other B's and the rest were A's so a good day. I will of course be in touch as soon as we get to the point of needing more help for N. He's doing ok at the moment but we'll see how Year 9 progresses before deciding which areas might need your expert assistance. In the meantime, thank you for everything and I hope things are going well for you.
Mrs S Dulwich
M got her Spanish iGCSE result last week and amazingly she got an A*! I emailed Rosie to let her know and to thank her again all her help and support for M. I am sure that her input made a huge difference. M's Spanish teacher at school will be amazed. She had said that if M got an A they would have a party!
Mrs S Highgate
Darius came for 4 x 2 hour sessions. My son really enjoyed these sessions and Darius boosted his confidence hugely.
Mrs M Clapham
We are thrilled with his results in the subjects Alex tutored B in. Maths: A, Chemistry: A, Physics: A. Overall he achieved 8 A's and 2 B's so we are delighted. Thanks again for putting Alex our way. He was marvellous and I am very happy to recommend him to any future clients.
Mrs U Kilburn
A is very happy with the all of the tutors. Indeed, he confirmed that yours are the best teachers on the subjects he has ever had, including from his College. I am, therefore, hopeful, that his results will demonstrate a better understanding of the concepts, and wish to convey my thanks for the effort put in, especially by Bilal. He has gone beyond the call of duty to support A. He sat for the first retake yesterday, and he sounds very confident" so I am keeping my fingers crossed!
Mrs A Nigeria
Unconditional offer to Edinburgh. Thank you ever so much. Unbelievable, the last Business Studies tutor was great! She had her best scores in her worst subject! Over the moon.
Mrs B Wembley
J has enjoyed the tuition and we are delighted with all the tutors she has had. I would highly recommend Ivy Education to my friends, and wouldn't bother looking for any tutors elsewhere in the future, as it would be pointless.
Mrs T Clapham
AK has been a great help to C with his maths tuition. He is extremely professional, polite, friendly, patient and helpful.
Mrs D Dulwich
GCSE English seemed like an insurmountable challenge for R a year or so ago and we decided to give him a little extra help by contracting a tutor. Tom came to our house for just over a year& he is a thoroughly decent person who happens to be an excellent teacher. He was friendly, approachable and cultured and seems to have instilled in R a love of reading slightly offbeat American novels. Tom is an excellent tutor and I would be happy to recommend him to any parent or student.
Mrs M West Sussex
Dan has been a huge success and has helped P enormously, they also have a great deal in common re the acting and film world. Dan has been consistent, punctual and very good at communicating with P.
Mrs U Westminster
A was very happy with her tutor, she found it easy to understand the concepts being taught and grasped the topics she had issues with. Overall we are pleased.
Mrs J Wandsworth
Matthew was very helpful to A, who has passed with an A star, I'm very pleased with the way Matthew brought A's level up in Maths. Thank you very much for providing us with such a wonderful tutor.
Mrs G Fulham
It's hard to navigate the world of tutoring services and I was so pleased my friend Emily recommended Ivy Education. With the help of their lovely tutors, my daughter went from dreading Maths to achieving one of the top marks in her class!
Mrs L Battersea
I am very happy that I was put in contact with Ivy Education. My needs were fully discussed and understood, and an excellent and appropriate teacher was assigned extremely quickly and efficiently. Thank you! I would recommend Ivy Education to friends looking for tutors.
Mr Joffy Conolly Headteacher, Soho Parish School, London
Ivy Education provide a good quality reliable tutoring service that has had a measurable impact on the progress of our targeted children. Our tutor Poppy was extremely punctual and reliable and proactive in her planning. She worked well with our children and behaviour management was always good.We have particularly valued Ivy Education's flexibility.
Mr Richard Smith Teacher of Maths & Numeracy Leader, Harris Boys Academy, London
Ivy Education were fantastically efficient and accommodating to work with. The tutor they supplied was enthusiastic and professional. He worked with pupils that were struggling in mathematics and helped the majority of them to catch up and make excellent progress.
Mr James Stacey Deputy Headteacher, St Joseph RC Primary School, London
I have spoken to Louise about continuing to work with us. We would like her to pick up 2 more sessions after half term. When her current run of 3 sessions ends we will probably ask her to start a new run of 2 or 3 sessions again too. I hope that is ok. Her work is having a real benefit.
Mr James Stacey Deputy Headteacher, St Joseph RC Primary School, London
Louise has been excellent so far and we communicate weekly. She is very diligent and thorough. We have seen benefits already in the children's work and we hope this continues. Many thanks indeed.
Mrs S Belgravia
I wanted to reiterate what a great job Helene did. It's a great service you offer. Understanding your child's academic baseline and learning style is a great foundation to build upon. Helene is a true professional and inspires a great deal of confidence. She is a real ambassador for your company.
Mrs M Shortlands
Firstly, thank you for introducing us to Helene. W thoroughly enjoyed the time he spent with her and we found her feedback and the information she shared with us very useful. We have already ordered the books Helene has suggested we get.
Mrs M Chelsea
I just wanted to thank you so much for arranging for Helene to come and see H yesterday. She was absolutely brilliant and I just wish I had met her a year ago. H and her really clicked.
Mr Y Dubai
Thank you very much for arranging the time with Helene and sharing the results. Helene was extremely helpful and professional. She was able to connect instantly with our little son and gave us superb actionable feedback afterwards. We really appreciated her input and couldn't have wished for a better consultant.
Mrs H Chelsea
Thank you for the report which we will read with interest. It was very helpful to talk to Helene and both P and I very much enjoyed her company. Helene was very clear and very accurate, I felt, about where the weaknesses and strengths lie.
Dr M Isle Of Dogs
Thank you very much for sending S's report, as I said we found the assessment worthwhile and very reassuring that the problem lies in more exam practice and technique rather any other problems. Helene's feedback and suggestions were of tremendous value to us and since then S has been more tuned and more enthusiastic about practicing.
Mrs P Notting Hill
I'm really touched by your well wishes for S. Thank you for thinking of her. I'll let S know that you are cheering for her when I see her. We will let you the results when we have them. Please say hello to Helene from us.
Mrs M Chelsea
I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help, advice and time. We are so overjoyed that H will be going to Northcote and we really wouldn't have had that chance without you. An enormous thank you from us both.
Mrs O Earls Court
Thank you for introducing us to Mr George Marsh. We all enjoyed talking with him. My husband was particularly pleased to have gained an insight into the British exam system and instant feedback on the boys' performance. As for the interview today, the boys came out very much relaxed. Mr Marsh put them into a right frame of mind and certainly it helped.
Mrs N Clapham
Liz Hill was amazing! Lots of great tips for us.
Mrs Y Chiswick
Just letting you know that M got in to St Paul's Juniors, we found out today and are over the moon, as I'm sure you can imagine! Thank you so much to you and your team for all your help along the way; please do thank George for us too.
Mrs T Clapham
Sarah has been a great help and has given I lots of extremely helpful advice which has even lead to her changing her mind on the course she now wants to do at university.
I was going to write to you in any event to say that Sarah has been brilliant. She has provided an outstanding service, of the highest standard and advice that has been invaluable. She has been available at all hours and always provided rapid and helpful responses. Furthermore, she was able almost miraculously to step in and resolve a last minute crisis just before the deadline for filing T's form - only because she is so conscientious and reads her emails at all times, and has enormous experience. We have all been immensely impressed and are very, very grateful. We feel we owe her a deep debt of gratitude.
The consultation went very well. Sophie is very professional, with excellent knowledge of the school market. She was very quick and efficient; she quickly understood what we needed and guided us efficiently in selecting the right school for our daughter. Without Sophie's help, we would not have been able to truly understand the school system and the right options for L. We are happy as she has helped us to find academic SEN schools which offer BTEC courses and which will be a positive challenge for L. Furthermore, Ivy Education was able to tailor make the consultation, providing the service we needed at a discounted price. I would be happy to recommend Ivy Education to anyone.
Lucy English, History & Geography Tutor
I'd like to thank you (and everyone else at Ivy) for the last few months. Having worked with a number of other tutoring agencies, Ivy has been by far the most supportive, reliable and professional and I'm grateful for all the lovely clients I've had since September. I will, of course, recommend you to anyone looking for tutoring work and I hope to work with you again in the future. Please pass my thanks on to the rest of the office!
Gary History, English & Geography Tutor
Can't thank you and the team enough, for all the support and real professionalism. Absolutely first class. Ivy is a superb agency, because of it.
Melissa Primary Tutor
To all at Ivy tutors, thank you so so much for your flexibility - I love tutoring for such an efficient agency. I'm hoping to carry on tutoring Z when I return - I'll keep in touch. Thank you again so much.
Luzia Maths, Physics & Chemistry Tutor
I would also like to say that I have been really impressed with Ivy Education - I have worked with many agencies, but none of them nearly as good when it comes to supporting both tutors and parents. I was also impressed with the thorough vetting process, as well as the feedback from the agency and the general support. In addition, I have never once had to call up to hassle someone to get paid - the payment arrived on time every month.
Marina English Tutor
I just wanted to take a moment to say how pleased I am to be working for Ivy Education, and how impressed I am with its work. Over the last few years I've worked for various tutoring agencies and had a range of issues, including late payments, lack of communication and support and job descriptions that are nowhere near the real task! There's never been a hint of this with Ivy; you are the only agency I know of that actively checks up on how things are going with tutors as well as clients, and it's such a breath of fresh air! Eliza in particular has been really helpful and seems to always be in a good mood! I'm really impressed with the "Tutoring for All" initiative and the pay structure you offer - you're certainly the first agency I would recommend.
Jack Primary Teacher
This experiences has reminded me why I started training to teach years ago as the pupils are motivated, engaged and passionate about learning in smaller groups. They appreciate how lucky they are to have extra tuition and it shows in the effort they put into each session. This in turn has motivated my planning to benefit their learning, be engaging and to target gaps in their learning. I would recommend more qualified teachers to explore and support tutoring as an alternative way to advance education.
Louise Primary & English Teacher
Things are going really well at St Joseph's; I really like it here. There's a great ethos and James has been super supportive. He also gives me positive feedback weekly which is motivating. The children are also making great steps to improvement so I am thoroughly happy.
David English, Maths, Science & Art Tutor
The children inspired me, too. They both dived in with a smile and complete friendliness and maturity. Didn't feel like teacher / pupil dynamic at all. They were just both absolutely great and very pleasant to be around, and I'd happily help them out anytime.
Alex Maths & Science Tutor
I just want to thank you ever so much for the faith you put in me initially as a tutor, and the excellent opportunities, families and individual students you have exposed me to. I can very honestly say that tutoring has had a major impact on my life, and I often found myself most happy when tutoring! It's a really incredible thing you have going at Ivy.
Simon Maths & Languages Tutor
All children should be entitled to receive the best possible education and it has been extremely fulfilling to work with pupils of all backgrounds, many of whom would not be in a position to pay for a private tutor without the financial support of the Pupil Premium funds.
Mrs W Wandsworth
I’m pleased to say that E achieved A*, A*, A, and her place at Oxford… Sophie was wonderful and I’m sure gave E the confidence she needed and some vital consolidation which enabled her to achieve this result
Mrs E South Africa
Your offices were helpful from the get-go. They were able to find a suitable Tutor in the first try so that we did not have to go through many interviews. They were also helpful when I was not able to do the payments as requested, as I do not have a British Bank account. C had two Tutors, both of which were engaging and were able to keep him interested in subjects that he struggles with. They have helped him improve and enjoy the subjects, which for a 10-year-old boy is no easy task. Thank you for all your help and making the online tutoring such a success. I am very grateful
Mrs E South Africa
The tutoring is going very well at the moment. I was worried that it would not work so well over Skype, but my son seems to enjoy it. He especially likes Jake which is, of course, a huge plus.
Mrs. B Fulham
Nicola was a great success, T really enjoyed his lessons with her – he made English fun! That was fantastic. I recommend and I will get in touch in the New Year to arrange further tutoring
N did brilliantly in her GCSEs and in the subjects where she got extra help from Ivy Education she exceeded expectations, she somehow managed to get an A in French and got double A* in science and an A* in Maths. Jacques gave her a real confidence boost and despite the short period of time he had to work with her he managed to find the key areas to work on to pull up her grade. Klevis equally worked on her confidence and clarified areas in Chemistry in particular where she was in a muddle.
Jeremy was fantastic and answered all our questions diligently. There is nothing further required at this stage, but we will surely be in touch if things change
Ilana King Assessor
Understanding each child as an individual and identifying their academic attainment and areas for development is the key to ensuring their educational success. Using assessment to determine the level of a child relative to their age and stage will help parents recognise how their child compares to the standards against which they are being measured, allowing targeted work and faster progression.
Liz Hill Ivy Consultant
It can be hugely beneficial to students to have 1:1 support to focus on individual learning needs and promote confidence.
Mr N Manchester
We are very pleased to have Eisha. She is precisely the calibre of tutor we were hoping for. She is excellent in all respects. We intend to continue with her in the coming months on at least a weekly basis.
Mrs S Wimbledon
Peter was fantastic and was certainly a tremendous help to J and his advice was very constructive and beneficial. Please, please pass on our thanks. I would highly recommend him. A very valuable experience.
Mrs S London
I just wanted to thank you for finding such a fantastic tutor for my son. Roy’s bright, professional and has really inspired my son. He arrives prepared for the lessons and keeps my son on task for the full two hours which is very impressive! My son also tells me that’s it’s really helped him at school. He’s also continuing the lessons to help him during this difficult time.
Mrs S London
N had his first session with Ravi and he said he was fantastic. He said he thought he was the best teacher he’d ever had. He said he explained everything very clearly and he learnt a lot.
Brodie Bibby One of Ivy's expert consultants
Together, Ivy Education and Sharky and George have devised a course that not only covers the essentials required for the 7+, 8+ and 11+ entrance exams, but also incorporates a huge range of exciting, hands on activities and games, that build on the academic curriculum whole also creating a sense of fun and increased motivation towards learning
Recent event feedback from a parent
S said how much fun the learning part of the session was, which he was really pleased about
Recent event feedback from a parent
G really liked how everyone worked together in the learning part and then got to play together as Crusades afterwards
Recent event feedback from a parent
Both the Ivy teaching and the Sharky & George playing was interactive and inclusive. I have to say that the Crusades and Code Cracking seem to crop up frequently at family dinners now
Mrs O, Parent of 11+ student
I’ve been really impressed by Coco’s approach to her tutoring. She tailors each lesson to reflect the needs highlighted by the previous lesson, which is great and shows that she has an in-depth knowledge of her subject.
Mrs E, Parent of 11+ student
We very much liked Coco and her teaching technique. We felt that she would be a good fit for our daughter who was initially quite nervous/ apprehensive but seemed to relax. Coco has a very patient and kind manner which is better for my daughter’s character. We are very happy with Coco and thank you Ivy for pairing her up with my daughter.
Mrs M, Parent of Year 5 student
Josie is absolutely lovely and my daughter has warmed to her already. It was wonderful listening to them talk. We are extremely happy Josie thus far.
Mrs B, Parent of 11+ student
Marguerite is a fantastic tutor. She has a gentle nature that is good for my son's anxieties and is on time and very organised. I would highly recommend her. After two English sessions my son's scores have gone from 36,43,46% to 74%-70% in his weekly tests.
Mrs L, Parent of 11+ student
We are really happy with George and the help he is providing for our son. We’ve actually arranged to have an extra weekly session with him!
Mrs W, Parent of 11+ student
Joe has really been a fantastic help for my son and whilst we haven’t had long with him (because of the exam being brought forward from Jan) he has given my son a lot of support and confidence for his exam. I really cannot speak highly enough about his professionalism and excellent teaching style and would recommend him to anyone looking for exam support for their child. He has always strived to go above and beyond what I had originally expected of him, providing reading lists and researching the new exam process for this year.
Mrs S, Parent of Year 9 student Kensington
Ivy has been invaluable- when A started she was a year behind- with Ivy’s tutors she is now ahead of her class in French and Latin! The tutors have been world-class and the service is always considerate and helpful. We couldn’t be happier!
Mrs V, Parent of Year 5 student London
"I just wanted to tell you how much A enjoys the lessons with you. He has told me today that he cannot believe that an hour flies so quickly. He really loves writing now. If you remember from where we have started, it is unbelievable! I would like to express how grateful we are as parents for such a progress!"
Mr S SE London
I would like to let you know that O has made it to Dulwich Prep! Thank you so much for tremendous help! The assessment was quite similar as assessment with you. Very friendly, easy environment. He wasn't stressed at all. We have worked on the areas you highlighted and it was surely game changer but also fun for me as I knew what to focus on.
Mrs M Putney
Just to follow up I wanted to let you know that we put into place all the strategies you suggested and we have had the result we dreamed of! S has received an offer from Wimbledon High Prep School (our first choice) and offered a wait list place at Putney High Prep. Thank you for your advice!
Mr Z, Parent of Year 1 and Year 3 students London
Mrs Bowman was extremely professional and knowledgeable and the meeting was most helpful. Her advice has helped us reach a decision also given us peace of mind.
Mrs F, Parent of Year 5 student Penn, England
You certainly have succeeded in providing excellent tutors and I am very happy I went with Ivy instead of the other agencies I was considering.
Mrs S, Parent of Year 8 student London
My daughter is very much enjoying her sessions with Ada. Having to cover a whole year’s worth of work in a few months is daunting, but Ada’s calm and assured manner has given my daughter the confidence that she may be able to achieve this.
Mrs C, Parent of Year 13 student London
Christopher has been excellent and I would be happy to recommend him to other students or act as a reference for parents!
Mr W, Parent of GCSE Chemistry student London
Many thanks for introducing the excellent Amaia Uriz Huarte , who is doing a lovely job with my son A in chemistry!
Mrs J Wandsworth
Caroline has been an excellent tutor for my daughter's EPQ. She has motivated my daughter to progress and advance her approach in a very encouraging and importantly informed way.
Mrs L Chiswick
I thought George was very specific and targeted in how he approached working with my son. I shared some thoughts about how my son approaches learning, and George really took them on board. We traversed a lot of ground in a short time which was exactly what we needed. He formed a helpful bond with my son that made the whole process both more productive and relaxed than it could have been. The Ivy Education team are great, very responsive and helpful.
Mrs S Sutton
Gavin is an excellent tutor. He has tutored my son for last 3 years to finally achieve his 11 + targets, we have already received St Paul's 13+ offer today and hope to receive more over the next few weeks. Gavin is excellent in doing targeted work and has great communication with my son. My son enjoys his lessons and looks forward to it.
Mrs T, Parent of GCSE student Wandsworth
I’d like to take this opportunity to say how happy we are with our tutor's teaching of S. They’ve formed a good working relationship and is making really great progress and really enjoying his Maths work.
Naima Parent in London
Ivy Education delivered each and every time I called on them for assistance with my kids. We immigrated in the middle of their high school career and they required a great deal of help to adjust to a new curriculum and the UK academic standards. They have now all successfully completed their A levels and Ivy Education assisted them throughout their journey. Thank you for getting us the right tutor for our needs. Some of their tutors have become lifelong friends.
Bryony Parent & Headteacher, London
As a mother of 4 children and also a Headteacher, when I decided to arrange tutors for my children, I knew that I couldn’t accept anything but the best for my own children so I was probably a challenge for Ivy Tutors! However, they have been utterly professional, reliable and committed to offering a ‘bespoke tutor’ match for each of my 4 very different children. Each of the tutors we have had over the years have been not only excellent teachers, but also very positive role models for our teenagers. I genuinely highly recommend Ivy Tutors to other families.
Mr S Canary Wharf, London
Thank you for all your support and patience. Your lessons made a huge difference and her teachers at her current school remarked that they felt she had come on quite a bit since the last time they saw her in person. Apparently, she told them a couple of things her “Teacher Anna” taught her, and they were perplexed by who “Teacher Anna” is…
Genevieve Parent in South Africa
I engaged Ivy Tutors for my children aged 14, 12 and 7 following a strange period of "educational flux" which occurred when we moved from Kenya (on the English Curriculum) to Cape Town (South African system) for 9 months and then back to the UK. My kids missed the Autumn term whilst waiting for their visas in the UK and then arrived just in time for the long holiday in SA, spent two terms in their SA Schools, one in Covid lockdown and then needed to start UK schools the following September. All in all they were behind by nearly an entire academic year and we were super stressed! Ivy tutors worked so hard to find a remote tutoring solution that fitted our budget and timelines. The tutors were picked really carefully to match our children's interests and personalities and the lessons were engaging and extremely effective. All of our kids entered their new schools in the UK having caught up and with more confidence in their abilities than they have ever had before. I thank my lucky stars that this solution was available as I am certain that it helped immeasurably to smooth over what could have been an educational disaster for our children. Thanks so much Ivy Tutors for a really special service!
