Testimonials

Jasleen KS4

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the past 6 years. Not just for boosting me academically but also for the motivation you gave me when I was overstressing. You made me realise that no matter what is on the paper on results day, I should feel very proud of how hard I worked and tried. Thank you so much, Jasleen.

Ethan SpLD

We were so pleased to find Andrea, through a friend’s recommendation. We were despairing about what to do with our son. The school said that there was nothing wrong with him but we knew that he was finding the work really difficult. Each day he would come out of school and have melt downs at home. He always took out his frustrations from school on us and his younger sister. Although we booked Ethan in for help with his reading and spelling, we received so much more. Andrea very soon recognised that he likely had dyslexia, which was a huge relief to us as we had suspected this for years. She talked to us about different methods to help him with his school spellings etc so that we no longer had the weekly battle and then upset, related to the class test. Andrea enabled us all to recognise the strengths of Ethan, rather than just focussing on his difficulties. She also carried out some assessments that showed that his memory was very poor. We were able to show her report to the school and they did begin to support him with the recommendations Andrea gave. 

We highly recommend Aspire Tuition due to the professional service but particularly because Andrea always went the extra mile for our son.

Oliver KS2

After a few weeks of you being shut at the start of lockdown, Ollie started to ask if he would ever come to Aspire again. He was so pleased to see you over Zoom. Although he hates writing at school, he is more than happy to work for you and it is great to hear him laughing and coming out with ideas when working online with you. Thank you for being one of the few people to get the best out of him.

Harry 11 Plus

We must thank you for the continued support to our son whilst working towards his 11 Plus exam. It was difficult for us to make H. commit to focussing on the work at home so having a dedicated time each week with you made our lives much less stressful. Despite him saying how hard he had worked during the sessions, he also admitted that he felt so much more confident in his own abilities and the work outside the sessions has also become less of a chore for him too. 

Elsie KS2

Thank you Andrea, Elsie had a big smile on her face after she finished her session with you which only confirms to Martene and I that we have made the right decision in engaging with you. 

Ada KS2

Thanks so much for this morning. When my husband got home and asked Ada how it went she told him it was great (with a big smile on her face), so I’m really pleased she’s feeling so positive about it!

Jessica Year 4

It was lovely hearing Jess work with you again this morning. She’s really enjoying her sessions with you, which I’m sure will make a big difference.

Year 6 student KS2

Amber had her school report this week and it confirmed she is working at an excellent level for maths. But more important Amber enjoys her sessions and learns without feeling like it’s a “chore”. I think the one to one online really suits her learning style 

Year 5 student with literacy difficulties

Thanks Andrea. She went straight on after her session with you and made a word search with this week’s school spellings as well. She’s apparently told her teacher all about it today and her teacher has asked her to email it to the school.

We’ve seen such a difference in her since the summer. She seems so much more confident and, as you said, is now so much more willing to give things a go! She absolutely loves her sessions with you and always comes away feeling so positive and encouraged. We can’t help but recommend you!

Thank you for everything you’re doing to help her!

Jackie Snowdon

We were finding that the size and mix of some of the classes in secondary school were making it difficult for Josh to learn to his full potential, that’s why we first came to Aspire. 

When our eldest son, Josh, was studying with David and the Aspire team he gained an A in his GCSE maths, which he definitely wouldn’t have managed without their support and they helped him immensely. 

When Josh left, our youngest, Joel, was also keen to start learning with Aspire. Joel’s initial assessment showed he was behind where he ought to be, which was a surprise to us but he has now caught up. 

Having the one-to-one help but within a classroom environment with other children really helps Joel. He enjoys it more and finds it easier than studying at home. Sue goes through things that have been covered at school that Joel doesn’t fully understand and Joel is a lot more confident now. 

Joshua Snowdon

I really enjoyed my time with Aspire. 

I first started coming when I was predicted a C in my GCSE maths and I wasn’t happy with that. During my assessment with Aspire I was told that I had the potential to get an A. I planned on doing A Levels in law, psychology and history so I needed to get at least a B for these. 

During the lessons, David always took the time to explain things and would he would also plan them so we would look at the things that I was struggling with in school. He always encourage me and I achieved an A in my GCSE. 

I kept in touch with David as my brother is also going to Aspire. David knew that I was applying to study law at university and he helped me with my personal statement. I’m now at the University of Essex studying law. 

Aspire helped me much more than just getting an A in my GCSE Maths, they helped me get where I am today.

Anjali

I really enjoy Aspire as even though I am learning so much, it doesn’t feel like I am as I am having so much fun!

Being taught by the teachers at Aspire brings huge benefits, I have learned things that I have not been taught in school.

What are the benefits of tuition?

Tuition allows gaps in learning and misconceptions to be uncovered because of the high teacher to student ratio. Often a child is stuck with their learning not because of the difficulty of the subject matter but because they do not have requisite prior learning in place.
