Redbridge Tuition has been fundamental in the success of my son’s 11+ exams. He was able to clear all the grammar and private school exams he sat for. They are a very resourceful team, who structure the activities very carefully and execute them to perfection. But they were also very flexible when needed to tailor the program to fit my son’s academic needs. We are forever grateful, for the seeds of knowledge they have sown.

Never in a million years did we ever think Mollie would ever achieve one of the ‘top Academic Scholarship Award’ at one of our two chosen local Independent Schools. Not to mention passing her 11+ exams and also achieving a place at Woodford County High School. Words cannot express how grateful we are to you and all the staff at Redbridge Tuition for all your hard work and dedication towards Mollie. We cannot believe all the hours of hard work and time has finally paid off, as she has gained fantastic results this year!

We have always been impressed with the personal individual way you teach. Giving each child the confidence, along with the updates on our child’s progress throughout the whole time at Redbridge Tuition. Her ability to approach her work and apply herself increased immensely right up to her examination dates, keeping her focused all the way.

We are so pleased we decided to go down the coaching tuition side offered by Redbridge Tuition. We will be more than happy to recommend your hard work to anyone who is at present in a similar situation as we were a year ago – not knowing whether to go down the tutoring route offered by Redbridge Tuition.

But what a joy it is in the end, to be in the position to have the choices!

Mollie is now looking forward to starting at Forest School and we cannot thank you and your staff enough for all your valuable advice and efforts in giving our daughter the best possible start towards her Secondary Education.
Thank you Redbridge Tuition for all your support and keep up with your brilliant work.

My son attended the Loughton Branch of Redbridge Tuition. We were impressed with the dedication and knowledge of the tutors. My son enjoyed going to the classes and we did this for approximately 2 years leading up to his entrance exams for secondary school. With the help of Redbridge Tuition, he was offered 3 schools. Redbridge Tuition makes it as engaging as possible, with some fun and games mixed in, younger children learn in this way they best I feel. I have no hesitation in recommending this place for assisting children getting ready for 11+ and private school entrance exams.
