Advice on selecting the right school or university for your child Career / work-placement advice

One of the things you probably do before purchasing a house is to seek mortgage advice. You probably look at the "best-buy" tables when thinking about buying a new car or expensive electrical equipment. So why not do the same if you want help in finding the best school to suit your child's ability? We can assist by offering you expert advice on SATs, Primary Schools, Selective, Independent Schools and much more. Following our face-to-face consultation, we will also compile a detailed and easy to read report which you can look through at your leisure. Save time and money by getting personal guidance to plan your child's education and boost grades.

Study skills and exam technique

Your child requires at least three months to prepare for an exam, so do not leave the all-important exam preparation until a couple of weeks before the actual exam. The focus of this course is on preparing the student to answer the questions specified in the exam paper under timed conditions. Past exam papers are used and students are coached to concentrate on the areas where examiners award the most points. The thorough preparation we provide will assist your child with overcoming exam stress and the freezing-up that all too often takes place on the day. By the time your child gets to the actual exam she/he will become familiar with the format and what is expected to successfully achieve an A* or A grade.
