Testimonials from Students
“A big thank you to Stephen and the EEC for helping me over the last year in order to achieve my goals. Before the tutoring I didn’t feel confident in certain areas of maths, but with Stephen’s guidance I have built the foundations for a greater understanding.” L.B. Adult/Nurse
“I used the Effective Education Centre whilst studying for my AS level English Literature retake and A2 English Literature exam. With the help from my tutor, Margaret, I was able to get my predicted grades and get into my first choice university. I found my experience at the Centre very enjoyable and that the staff were always more than willing to help out. Margaret was always very friendly and really passionate about her subject, making me want to work harder to achieve my grades. I would really recommend them to anyone who wanted some extra help and support. Thanks again for everything. :)” Student O.H.

Testimonials from Parents
“We are pleased to inform you that our son has been admitted to an independent school of his choice for year 7 in 2016. He successfully passed the entrance assessment tests in three schools. In all the assessments the schools were very commendable of his performance. We would like to thank the “Effective Education Centre” for preparing him for the assessment exams. He has become very confident in his writing, use of vocabulary and maths. The centre has really brought out the best him and we are grateful. The tutors are fantastic, committed and their approach makes learning fun. I highly recommend the Centre and can’t wait for my younger one to start. Thank you.” Mr and Mrs A.
“First, I wanted to thank Stephen for his work with K. in preparation for her Maths and Science (Physics) GCSEs. She felt that she learned as much in the few weeks she spent with him as she did during the whole two years previously. She passed her Maths and got an A and a B for her Physics which enabled her to get A for both Science exams – much to her surprise! So please pass on our thanks to him – the tuition with him made all the difference. I’d also like to thank you and Gerardine for being so friendly and helpful.” Parent of GCSE Student
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to you and your team there at the Effective Education Centre. In the 2 months that you looked after our son you managed to turn things around for him. There was a good chance that he was not going to do very well at all in his GCSE’s. We took some advice and we were given your details. With a little reluctance at first he came to see you. Very quickly he realised that you were going to be able to help him. We saw straight away that his confidence grew and he started putting a lot of work into his revision timetable.
“He took all of his exams. He achieved a pass in the 3 subjects he needed. This has given him the chance to leave school and start the apprenticeship that he wanted to get. He started this week and starts college next week. He is very happy and so are we.
“Once again thank you. None of this would have been possible without your help.” S.B.
“We have nothing but praise for the Effective Education Centre. My son (16) is preparing for his GCSEs and within a matter of weeks was put up to the very top class in Science. Tutoring at the Effective Education Centre has given him a lot more confidence in both his school work and in himself.” Mother M.G.
“My son has attended the Effective Education Centre for 3 months and already his school teachers have said he is much happier and more focused on his work. He is now taking more interest in learning and is so much better and more confident in reading at home.” Mother L.S.
“As a result of the tuition received at The Effective Education Centre, my son’s confidence has increased and his ability to illustrate and produce a book review improved to the extent that he was selected for the finals for Waterstones Bookshop.” Father J.F.
“As a result of the tuition my son is doing at the Centre, I am so proud of what he is achieving and he now has merits in English and has moved into a higher group and is achieving successfully. The staff are caring and care purely about the student and helping to build up confidence where confidence has been lost.” Mother M.B.
“After only one week’s attendance at the Centre my son’s teachers commented on his marked improvement in recognising the letters of the alphabet and his reading. Another month on and my son is showing more confidence in his ability to read and readily reads aloud. He has more confidence and self-esteem and takes pride in relaying his achievements at school; i.e. writing stories and reading books on his own.” Mr. & Mrs. S.
