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 8s and 9s + equivalents across all his 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 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.
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 8 in French and got two 9s in Science and a 9 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 and 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 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.
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
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.
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 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 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.
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!
Parent of Year 10 student London
Nishi has been a huge success and Maddy is really enjoying her lessons with her. I have been told that she is patient, kind, easy to talk to and never patronising.
