"We were looking for a tutor who would focus on 11 + English and work with our daughter to unscramble some things that had become scrambled at school and help to improve her confidence in dealing with exam questions. We also wanted a tutor who would work with our daughter and draw out the best in what she could do rather than trying to teach to a formula.
Josh delivered on all of this. In addition, we liked the fact that he struck a good balance between being positive, encouraging improvement and pointing out laziness or not firing on all cylinders. It was also very helpful that he was always willing to talk to us about progress and to discuss the 11+ process and applications more generally.
Our daughter will be going to JAGS. She passed the exams for all of the other schools that she applied to (Alleyn's, Emanuel, Streatham & Clapham, Sydenham and St Dunstan's) and Josh played a key part in helping her to achieve this."
