“The tutor from Star Child has been extremely helpful for my 10 year old son, Richard. She has built a good relationship with him and keeps him interested and focused. She is knowledgeable about the 11+ and entrance exams and is structured in her approach. I would highly recommend Star Child Tutoring.”
“Star Child tutoring has been an important part of my children’s education for a number of years and in different capacities. It initially started by being an important support to their day to day learning by assisting and focusing on areas they were finding hard within the curriculum.
The tutors’ knowledge and teaching techniques are very much up to date and support the national curriculum well, they are patient and find different ways of making topics relevant to each child and therefore engages their interest, the lessons become fun rather than intimidating.”
“Our Son needed extra help with his school work as he was behind the expected stage for his age group, we suspected he had dyslexia and so needed extra support and encouragement. We would often struggle to get him to sit down to do his homework. After his first lesson it was such a great feeling for everyone in the family starting the week knowing we weren’t behind, he started to get better results almost immediately in his spelling tests which in turn gave him more confidence.
Star Child has a great method of teaching phonics, the tutors have a clear, logical no fuss approach and a confident manner which is just the right balance of authoritative guidance and encouragement, I would highly recommend them.”
“Star Child has played an important role in supporting my eldest son throughout the run up and during the 11+ plus exams for secondary schools. He was taught the techniques needed in all subjects and helping him to gain the confidence to tackle the more complex questions in exam papers.
He has been offered places in the schools we were hoping for, one of them being Berkhamsted school. The tutor was always been kind, patient and enthusiastic during the sessions using their experience and knowledge to make the learning experience fun and unthreatening to my children and this I believe is a real talent.”
