Barbara is an amazing tutor.  I have nothing but positive things to say about her.  From day 1, I felt that Barbara was fully committed and engaged in helping my son realise his full potential in both maths and English.  I am very grateful for all that she has done and would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor (A++).  Thank you Barbara!

11+ Entrance Exam Tuition for Grammar School.

Hi Denise,

More than happy to provide this reference recommendation for Barbara. Dina is very fond of Barbara! 

My daughter has been working with Barbara since May 2017. Barbara helped her work towards and prepare for two 11 plus entrance exams, which she passed comfortably. Barbara is kind and patient with her, but equally sets expectations in terms of what she expects her to work towards, such as homework to be completed. 

We always have feedback from Barbara at the end of each session, so we know how our daughter is progressing. Additionally, Barbara is punctual & flexible, on occasions we have to rearrange a session at short notice - nothing is to much trouble for her. 

We have been so impressed with Barbara and this is reflected in my daughter now being the top of her class, thus increasing her self-confidence, that Barbara is now working with her on preparing her for the forthcoming SAT's. 

I cannot recommend Barbara enough! 

Please feel free to use this reference as you see fit!

Kind regards,

Subject:  KS2/3 maths 

I approached Professional Home Tutors for a maths tutor for my son at Primary School, in order to stretch him and build on the learning he was doing at school. Vanya has done all of that and more. He has a great, productive relationship with my son, who clearly enjoys the lessons. He is professional and pleasant at all times, and was willing to discuss with us, options for what material he could cover in the lessons, once my son went on to High School. 

Thanks, Kathy

Subject: GCSE Maths

I would firstly like to take this opportunity to thankyou for providing such excellent tutors. Without your help it was nearly impossible to find a tutor. 

In regards to the maths tuition from Ashwini, she was amazing. She guided him throughout offering tips and guidance. She was very patient and very understanding. It did take my brother a few lessons to grasp the concept of algebra but Ashwini was very supporting. She allowed my brother to learn at his own pace and did not hesitate to offer more help and guidance.

I would highly recommend Ashwini to other students. She is truly amazing and is an exceptional tutor. With her help my brother passed his maths GCSE.

Kind regards

Subject:  Entrance Exams

I have used this company for all three of my children over the span of 10 years, to prepare them for entrance exams. Each time, with each child the service has been wonderful. The tutors are always very patient and professional. Each child has also succeeded in their exams and were offered a place at the chosen school. I'd recommend this company to any parents who's child either needs a boost of confidence or help in specific areas of education. I am also considering extra tutoring once my daughter starts senior school if she needs it. This is the company I have and will return to for such services. I am highly recommending this company to help parents with what can be a stressful time both child and parents! Hannah was the last tutor that we had for my daughter to enter the exam for September 2017. She's is such a lovely lady, very gentle in her way but somehow and almost magically got the work done! As my daughter was alittle reluctant to have tutoring, Hannah made it painless. Thank you Hannah for making it easier for me as a parent and the work a little more digestible for my daughter. She such a fan of Hannah

Very happy with Stephen. He really put the boys at ease and was very good at getting them to sit, listen and enjoy being taught. Not an easy task. Would definitely recommend Stephen to other students. Thank you!

Year 6 Maths Tuition

I am happy for you to share this reference with new clients.

Since January 2016, my son has been receiving maths tuition from Stephen.  Initially, Oliver was very reluctant at the thought of having "extra tuition and homework" and I was a little bit anxious at how the first meeting would go.

However, from the very first session, Oliver warmed to Stephen straight away.  I thought he would dread the Saturday morning sessions, but instead he looked forward to his arrival.  He would actually sit looking out of the window waiting for Stephen to arrive!!

Stephen has been nothing short of a miracle!  My son was really struggling with his maths and his confidence was low.  After a few sessions with Stephen, he would ask me to test his mental arithmetic on car journeys etc...something that would never have happened before!  He has gone up a level in his class and is now achieving the expected level for his age.  His class teachers are amazed at the progress he has made in such a short time.  I can't thank him enough for everything he has done for Oliver and would recommend him to anyone.

Kind regards

English KS2  - years 5 & 6

Fantastic service from Michele.  She took time from day 1 to listen to us as parents and get to know J. so that she could tailor the time to help with his tutoring needs.  Very reliable, fantastic interpersonal skills and always constructive use of time.  J. is off to high school but still wants to continue with lessons!!

KS2 literacy and numeracy.

Hi Denise,

Firstly, I'd just like to say how fantastic Mary has been! She has been so great for my son and he has thoroughly enjoyed the tutorials with Mary. She has the right mix of patience/understanding/humour and you can tell she genuinely cares about his progress and about what is going on in his life. We have been very impressed with Mary.

Thanks again and I won't hesitate to recommend your business.

Kind regards

Hi Denise.

Please add the testimonial to your website for Liz

'When my daughter went in to year 5, she needed a bit of extra help to boost her confidence with literacy and numeracy.

I approached the home tutors agency and they put me in contact with Liz. My daughter connected quickly with Liz, and she has tutored her for the last 2 years, preparing her for her SATS. Liz is a friendly lady, and built an instant rapport with my daughter. She knows what to teach and how to get it across in a way that doesn't intimidate. I would highly recommend Liz as a Key stage 2 tutor'

Maths tuition for yr 3

We are more than happy to recommend Bethan. She was a great tutor for our daughter, and it is only because we are now moving house that we have ended the extra tuition.

Bethan instilled in our daughter a new-found confidence in numbers. She now embraces number problems with relish, which is a result of Bethan's positive attitude and consistent praise. Our daughter's own level of understanding of maths, and her confidence, has increased and this is wholly down to Bethan's input. As I say, on the one hand the downside of us moving house is that regrettably we were unable to continue with the tuition

Tutor:  Mariana

(18 months tuition in Maths and Physics GCSE)

Mariana was a fantastic tutor who had excellent knowledge of Maths and Science.  Chloe instantly liked her and felt very comfortable with her.  She was very approachable and her lessons were organised but tailored to Chloe's needs at all times.  Mariana was flexible around holidays and nothing was too much trouble.

I would like to thank Professional Home Tutors for putting us in touch with Mariana as she gave Chloe the confidence and ability to enable her to get her GCSE grades she deserved.

Tutor.... Susan E.

A level Biology - about 8 month's tuition

Sue was extremely professional.  Right from the start she focused immediately on Jake's weak areas and addressed them.  Her level of commitment and punctuality are beyond question.  She pitched all the tuition at just the right level for Jake.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Sue to other clients.

Tutor….  Samantha D.

(15 months’ entrance exam  tuition for 9/10 yr old girl)

Sam was an experienced tutor having a deep knowledge and understanding of the requirements of obtaining a place in Bolton School.  She has a good demeanour and my daughter benefitted greatly from the manner in which Sam taught her.

Tutor: Kay R.

(8-10 weeks GCSE English tuition for yr 11 boy)

Kay was an absolute Godsend.  Her knowledge of English and English Lit. was second to none.  She inspired Bradley and, with her ability and knowledge, gave him so much confidence to believe in himself and to do well in English – something his teachers at school hadn’t manage to achieve in 5 years!

Mrs. J.


17th August 2012

Tutor..... Stephen H.

(A level chemistry tuition for 17 yr old girl, from September 2011 to June 2012)

Mr. H. Was an excellent tutor for our daughter.  He is very knowledgeable in the area, has several years of teaching experience and has a vast range of resources.  Without his help and tutoring, our daughter may not have achieved the grade she achieved.  He was always punctual and very organised.

Tutor...  Zaheer A. & Tahir P.

(3 months’ A2 biology and chemistry tuition)

Just wanted to say thanks for the Biology and Chemistry tutors that you provided.

My daughter has already spoken to Zaheer (Biology) to thank him as she somehow managed to get an A*! She is so happy about it that I can't even begin to put it into words! She was on a mid B after AS (despite a lot of hard work) so to turn that into an A* is just incredible. Suffice to say that it wouldn't have happened without Zaheer and we will be eternally grateful for the work that he did with her.

She also secured the A that she needed in Chemistry. Again, I don't think that this would have happened without Tahir and he also deserves a massive pat on the back!

All in all this means that she has got the grades that she needs to pursue her chosen career - which was looking highly dubious 6 months ago. I am so glad that I contacted you and will strongly recommend you to anyone who needs it.

Thanks again,

Mr B.

Hannah moved up from Grade 4 to Grade 5a since her tuition lessons with Mariana.  Hannah relates to Mariana and enjoys the lessons.

29th August 2012

Tutor......Karen O’

(One, sometimes 2 lessons per week for 2 months prior to the GCSE English exam, for yr 11 girl, aged 15.)

Karen’s subject knowledge was excellent – very in depth.  Katie had got a D in the mocks in English lit. (target A*) and it seemed it was her exam technique and confidence that were in the most need.  Karen gently steered her in the right direction.  She was always on time and got on instantly with Katie and was able to get the best out of her.  Once the lesson began, Karen’s enthusiasm was infectious and they often worked for longer than the hour.

Mrs. J. B.

Katie achieved her A* at GCSE.
