"My son has been really happy with Anni, he feels full of confidence and now knows exactly what he needs to do to pass his GCSE English Lang. He has gone to every lesson with Anni with enthusiasm and focus - not usual for my dyslexic son regarding English. The most important aspect was that he trusted her and knew she would be able to help him pass. As soon as I spoke to Anni on the phone I felt she could help him - she understood his needs and how to help him. His exams are this week and he feels really confident this time around. We are so grateful to Anni, she has been brilliant."
"My son really liked Matthew's analytical approach and the fact that he was keen to cover a lot in a session. He knows the curriculum well and was able to cover off both Physics and Maths which was a bonus. From my point of view Matthew has been extremely easy to communicate with. Furthermore he seems genuinely interested in Archie's results and very supportive along the way. In conclusion we would have no hesitation in recommending Matthew."
"My tutor is a really good teacher and I really like him, he’s nice to me. He plays games which make my lessons fun."
"Tom joined us at a critical period, just prior to Year 6 SATS when my daughter Alyx was losing confidence in maths by the day! I can honestly say that after just week 1, Alyx’s demeanour was transformed back to her happy, smiley self! Tom’s teaching style was wonderfully effective and laid back which allowed room to learn and flourish! Even on a Friday afternoon, Alyx raced home from school in anticipation of seeing Tom. Thank you!!"
"Matthew has been tutoring our son for a few months and we are very happy with the service. Lewis has developed a great rapport with Matthew and really looks forward to his sessions. Matthew seems to put a lot of effort into tailoring the sessions to Lewis' needs and finding topics that interest him."
"Our son's tutor was brilliant, really helpful, completely understood what we needed and gave Mac the confidence to do well at GCSE's and great exam technique advice and practice for his SAT College Board exams last year."
"This company was recommended to me by several friends and I highly recommend them too.I have been using Acorn Tutors for over a year to support my children (12 and 10) with Maths and Literacy. The quality of the teaching is excellent, with innovative methods and clever use of technology to engage and enable children. The rapport that the tutor has built with my two (who are very different learners) is based on emphatic understanding of children, and obviously a sound knowledge of psychology!I like that the tutor also took the time to email the children's teachers to liaise with them. Overall a very professional, reliable, and skilled service that will be make a long term difference in my family."
"My year 5 daughter looks forward to our tutor's visit every week. He arrives with a massive bag of maths paraphernalia, which he uses to make Maths fun, accessible and engaging. My daughter loves each session and has benefited enormously from her tuition with him."
Mrs Gracey, Stokenchurch
"Our tutor provided lively, engaging and interesting tutorials in English and Maths which my son looked forward each week. In addition he was able to mentor my son through some of the other issues he faced at school which helped boost his confidence both in and out of the classroom. This support has made the first steps into senior school much easier. Thanks guys, you did a wonderful job!!
Mr Scott, Maidenhead
"Lessons were planned and implemented carefully. Our tutor has not only made English thoroughly enjoyable for our son, but has stimulated a passion for it!"
Mrs Carter, Bracknell
"I like my tutor because I like the fact that if there is something that I don't understand at school then I can tell him and he will explain it to me."
"I was in a major panic about my QTS exams, but thankfully my tutor helped me to prepare for them and after passing with flying colours, I'm now a happily-qualified teacher! Thank you!"
"I would like to recommend my tutor because he has been my maths tutor for 8 months now, and I have been improving in my maths lessons at school. He inspires me to do well in maths and sometimes to be neater. I love having lessons with him because they are fun and enjoyable."
"Our tutor is a rare mix of easy going, good fun yet able to keep the child to task . He has successfully helped both my children who have very different needs. My son lacked confidence and my daughter was 2 years behind her age group. Both have thrived. My daughter who has most difficulty has come on amazingly. I would not hesitate to recommend him."
Mrs Lloyd, Reading
"I love my lessons with my tutor because they are fun and they help me in class."
"Lilley was having difficulty after moving schools. Her confidence was failing and she was struggling in class. Since working with a tutor, her confidence has much improved, as has her performance in class, as well as her 11+ Maths work. Lilley loves her weekly sessions and her tutor brings fun to the subject. I would highly recommend."
Mr Morgan, Marlow
"My tutor is amazing and makes learning fun and not boring like school!"
"I have been impressed by our tutor's professional and individual approach. She tailors the lessons with thoughtful preparation and helpful material to support the topic. My children have been making good progress and look forward to the lessons as they are often fun and interactive."
Mrs Palmer, Bucks
"Our tutor has been tutoring my daughter for the past six months. Over this time, he has made learning fun and something to look forward to. They have built an excellent rapport and he has brought a new level of energy and enjoyment to her studies . Her confidence and understanding of what is required has been most impressive. Having taken lessons as preparation for entrance exams she is keen to continue her sessions with him - this has to be a clear indication of his abilities to engage and motivate his students I have no hesitation in recommending Acorn Tutors."
"I would like to recommend our tutor as he has helped my son grow in confidence with his written work. He has a huge amount of patience, makes the lessons fun and imaginative, takes time to get to know the child. Grades have gone up beyond all predictions. My son is lucky enough to also have him as a supply teacher at his school and was really pleased when we said we were taking him on as a private tutor, which is not a reaction a year 5 boy has to extra work! I strongly suggest if you are thinking of tuition to get in touch! Your kids will thank you."
Mrs Healey, Cookham
"My tutor is really helpful and they show me loads of cool tricks to solve sums!"
"Absolutely invaluable. My daughter has finally restored her confidence in her studies. She was really struggling and it's all really turned around since starting with her tutor. I would not hesitate to recommend Acorn Tutors to anyone looking for a tutor. Fantastic!"
"I have had a tutor since primary school. She helps me with school work and has made me feel confident again. It’s really good that she still teaches me at my new secondary school as she knows me. I can ask her questions and she helps with the much harder work."
"Acorn Tutors really helped my son who has dyslexia to study for his SATS and achieve good results. This has also helped him in making an excellent start to his secondary school. Would highly recommend."
"I had been looking for someone to tutor my daughter for a long time. I had gone to a number of other tuition companies, without success. I then got in touch with Acorn Tutors. From the offset they were so helpful and really seemed to be about the education rather than trying to make a quick buck. They gave me a few options of tutors and carefully guided me throughout the process. The tutor I ended up going with was fantastic! They were so friendly and made my daughter engage with her learning! As well as helping her with her learning, our tutor has given my daughter her confidence back. Can't ask for any more."
"We tried a number of other tutoring agencies before Acorn Tutors and we could not be more happy with our choice. Acorn have done a great job in supporting our dyslexic son and we can't recommend this agency highly enough."
My son, who had been struggling with Literacy / Comprehension, has made huge progress following tutoring from Tom at Acorn Tutors. I am thrilled to say that my son has passed ALL his SATS tests (having not been forecast to by his class teacher!) We can't thank Tom enough for helping our son pass these tests and would highly recommend Acorn Tutors to anyone!"
"We really appreciate the work that Tom did with our daughter in preparation for the Kendrick exam and also the year 6 SATS preparation. The support from Tom at Acorn tutors gave Grace the extra confidence and tools she needed and made the whole process of exams seem less daunting. Her SATS results were fantastic. Thank you. I would highly recommend Acorn Tutors!"
"We have been very impressed with Tom from Acorn Tutors. He has helped our son to make significant progress with his Maths and clearly has an enviable ability to engage and motivate the children he teaches. He is polite, friendly, enthusiastic and above all, very good at what he does. We have no hesitation in highly recommending him to anyone seeking a tutor for their child."
