Parents, Carers and Teachers say…
“I would just like to thank all of you at the school on receiving a glowing report. It really is wonderful to see her so engaged and growing into herself. As I stated when she first joined the Foundation, I was more concerned about her social and emotional development than her educational development but she has engaged in all three and it is all down to the focus and attention she receives from all of you. Thank you all so much”
Year 7 dad, April 2021
“My son had had difficulties in mainstream school and had become disengaged, however under Joanna’s tutelage he became more willing to engage with learning even doing his homework, which had been a big issue previously. As a family we noticed a big change in my son’s attitude to learning and study, which we fully attribute to him having Joanna as a tutor.
Throughout his time with her, Joanna was encouraging and patient, which helped my son engage in his lessons. She challenged him and his understanding in a way that did not make him feel belittled and ensured that he achieved his best, while making on going progress throughout the lessons and his time with her.”

“Thank you so much for being there and guiding my son even through the most difficult days. You always go above and beyond for him and we’re so thankful.”
Year 1 mum, Feb 2021
“Debbie was very friendly to my son and her relations were so cordial that he enjoyed the lessons without any fear, rather with joy. He willingly sat for the class, in fact, he usually waited for the class. Her style of teaching was very much suitable as my son improved a lot with the lessons given by Debbie. We are grateful to Debbie for the lessons she gave.

“Please thank your staff and especially T’s tutor, who have all worked so hard to make his time with you, and during these difficult times, a positive experience for T and his family”
Karen Sitch, Harris Federation SEN Consultant
“I would like to thank you and the rest of the teachers that have worked with K during his time at TTF. He really has come a long way and had some truly unique opportunities that he wouldn’t have got elsewhere.”
Year 11 mum, June 2020
We are so delighted with the quality of teaching and support from the Tutorial Foundation. Our daughter is on the outreach teaching programme and her tutors are fantastic. They go at our daughter’s pace and because she finds it hard to engage always think of different and imaginative ways to help her to do her best. Charlotte in particularly is wonderful. Inspiring to all of us, she has improved our daughters confidence by recognising her strengths even when she doesn’t. We have no hesitation in highly recommending the Tutorial Foundation.
Year 10 mum, May 2020
“Thank you and the rest of the teachers for all the work you are doing with P. P went missing just before she finished her mocks in November, by then I think she was beginning to dislike maths, she was truanting and missed most of her maths lessons, but today she came and said “Mum I really really like my lessons with Sharon. I really enjoy maths.” P has shown a great aptitude for learning and enthusiastic spirit I felt she had lost. Once again thank you Sharon for bringing that back”.
Year 11 mum, May 2020
“Thank you so much for the support you all gave him in the time he was with you. He is a much happier, less anxious and stressed child than he was back in September, we are very grateful for the positive affect you all had on him.”
Year 9 mum, Feb 2020
“I would just like to let you know we really appreciate having found your Tutor service. My son had lost all faith in schools and definitely teachers. Not having attended school for a year and being treated very harshly by stand in teachers and teachers alike. My son had lost faith in dealing with education although he really wanted it. The first day he was terrified thinking your tutors would be like dealing with teachers. I tried to explain it wouldn’t be but he was still scared and credit to him he tried. After the very first day he asked “can I do that again?” Which made me so happy. I couldn’t believe he said it.”
Year 9 mum – Feb 2020
“I want to sincerely thank you for all the hard work you did with J and I know that without your interventions and help he would not have been able to achieve this move to a new school.”
Ian Hewison, Attendence Team Leader, Lewisham – September 2019
“Thank you Julia for giving my son a chance when nobody else would and thank you for believing in him, as I did. He has done so well since being with you. Your school is amazing and so is the staff”.
Year 11 mum – July 2019

“…Thank you Aimee for everything. You have been such an amazing support for A and myself. I was so proud of him even just entering the building this morning! Today couldn’t have gone any better and to see Julia as well after was lovely. Words cannot express what you personally and The Tutorial Foundation has done and is still doing for A. He has come such a long way.”

Ali Hodgson, Assistant Head Teacher, Chislehurst School for Girls – Sept 2017
“… I’d also like to say thank you to you all. After 3 days, I seem to have my lovely son back. We’ve had a difficult time over the past year and I was dreading how things were going to work out with you guys. He walked out after his first day and informed me it was brilliant and he loved it. Thank you for making such a huge difference to my son in such a short space of time. “
Allison (parent) – Sept 2017
“I feel that he has really made a huge amount of progress with his independent travel this term. My son has at last got a friend. I will forever be grateful to everyone who has helped engineer this friendship and build his confidence. Please can we allow this term to continue as normal, my main focus has been to get him to want to leave the house in the first place! Hopefully we can find new goals for the New Year.
Genuine appreciation for all you do.”
Keeley (parent) – Dec 2016
“Since attending The Tutorial Foundation my son’s attitude towards learning has been completely turned around, going from not attending school or ensuring he got sent home to willingly going with a smile. His confidence has grown, as has his self-esteem, losing the negative attitude. I really feel that any qualifications he achieves will be solely down to the help and support of all the staff at Tutorial Foundation.”
Vicky (parent) – May 2014
