What parents say about Clever Kids

Clever Kids has become a huge part of our daughter’s Maths education.  Her confidence and results are amazing!! I would not hesitate to recommend Clever Kids to parents

Parent

We have been really pleased with our daughter’s progress.  She feels that the one hour per week she spends at Clever Kids is more beneficial than a whole week of classes

Parent

Clever Kids provides a nurturing teaching environment with excellent communicators who have assisted in building our child’s confidence in her own abilities.  Clever Kids tutors helped identify ‘holes’ in our child’s learning, gave her fabulous resources, empowered her to fill in the gaps, and create a better level of confidence in her own abilities across the board.

Parent

Clever Kids has been amazing for our two children.  Over the years they have provided specialist teaching for our dyslexic son when schools could not.  They have also provided tutoring in Maths and Physics for our daughter and I can say it was with their help that got her the high marks and the confidence to go into her exams prepared.  But one of the most outstanding things they did was for our son, who had no confidence in his ability.  He is now doing so well.  His confidence has soared and he is happy in himself.  The one-on-one with his tutor who became a mentor and a friend who listened was just over and above.  Very grateful to have found them.
