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!
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.
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
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.
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.
