What People say about Brighton Tutor...

"Sophie tutored my daughter in Maths in the run up to her SATS. Sophie immediately helped her to feel at ease and used a number of different methods to help her engage. As a result we feel her confidence has noticeably increased both when completing her recent maths homework and in her attitude towards her exams. I highly recommend Sophie!" 
Julie, parent. May 2018
"Our year 4 son was lacking confidence and skills in Maths and we felt he needed some extra support to grasp the basics and catch up with his peers. Initially apprehensive and reluctant to go, he built a great relationship with Sophie and it was really noticeable how much he has come on.  He says he really enjoyed spending time 1:1 with Sophie and in his own words, 'She is kind helpful and supportive.'" 
TM, parent. March 2018
"Thank you so much for always understanding and teaching me so well! You have taught me so much and helped me get a lot better at maths.I am so happy I am finally not in the bottom set!!! All thanks to you." 
SB, Year 7
"Yes, the tuition has really helped S. I will definitely recommend you for children needing a maths boost. Her confidence has improved massively and she is even getting 100% in some tests." 
SB's parent. October 2017

"Our son Cameron was tutored by Sophie throughout year 6, this was to give him a greater understanding of SATS papers. He had been very low in marks in previous years. Sophie worked wonders with Cameron, taking him through papers and giving him the confidence he needed to face SATS week head on and get great results. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sophie and thank her for all of her hard work."

Wendy, parent. October 2017

"Sophie taught our Yr 6 daughter in order to bring her up to the level needed for secondary school. She was calm, kind and patient and gave our daughter the confidence to tackle new problems in both Maths and English. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor."
Adele, parent. September 2017
"Sophie stood out from the local tutor crowd as she had taken the initiative to create her own website and was therefore readily contactable without having to sign up to any tutor finding websites or forums. I was impressed with this entrepreneurial attitude, added to which she is a qualified & practising archaeologist, which further sealed the deal. Under Sophie's tuition, my daughter progressed from struggling in the lowest groups in both English and maths, to being comfortably in the middle groups - all in under a year. My daughter always came out of her lessons in a good mood and her self-confidence has grown tremendously under Sophie's guidance. Sophie is a very competent tutor that I highly recommend." Parent, March 2017
"Sophie is very nice, reliable, patient, flexible and Professional. My daughter has really enjoyed working with Sophie and has learnt a lot. Sophie has helped her to pass a first entrance exam and will be helping her with maths and English for the second exams. I highly recommend Sophie."
Allison, parent. December 2016
"I wanted additional support for my daughter to help prepare her for year 6 SATs. She really enjoyed tuition with Sophie - she was very happy to go to lessons and she improved her results in maths and English. Tuition with Sophie has also given her more confidence in her own ability." Melissa Hopkins, parent. May 2016
"My 9 year old son was really struggling to grasp Maths concepts in a large class of 30 and was dropped to the bottom group. Freddy's 1:1 sessions with Sophie have made a huge difference. Within a couple of months he's gone up two sets in maths and his confidence and capability have improved enormously. Sophie has a thorough understanding of each child's individual needs and also a great knowledge of national curriculum expectations and targets.  Sophie ensures Maths lessons are both fun and constructive and as a result my son comes away with a real sense of achievement and pride. She also communicates very well with us, keeping us regularly informed on his progress. I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone." Polly, parent. April 2016

"Sophie tutored my 10 yr old daughter for a secondary school entrance exam. Sophie was great. My daughter loved her lessons from day one. She always came away happy and excited about what she had learned that day. Sophie provided a relaxed and varied learning environment which gave my daughter the confidence she needed to sit an exam. My daughter would have loved to continue with Sophie; however it didn't seem necessary as happily she passed the exam." Helen, parent. February 2016

“Sophie has been a real find.  Both my children (aged 10 & 8) were initially apprehensive about starting maths tutoring, but Sophie immediately put them at ease.  Sophie took the time to understand their individual needs (from me and the children themselves) and both children respond really positively to their 1-to-1 sessions with her.  Sophie has created a positive, trusting environment for them to learn.  Sophie sets a good balance of creative and fun activities (they don’t always realise they’re learning!) which they both enjoy and they love the “star” reward system.  Overall Sophie’s tutoring is highly recommended and complimentary to their primary school learning." 
Kate, parent. July 2015
"My daughter is now making real progress. Sophie is very approachable, patient and flexible in her approach to teaching. Would highly recommend (and my daughter has given her 10/10!)." 
Claire, parent. May 2015
"Sophie is a great teacher, very organised and great communicator. R has made steady progress under her guidance." 
Tannaz, parent. May 2015
"Sophie is an amazing tutor. My son was a very reluctant learner and school-attender and he has been completely turned around by Sophie’s patience and hard-work. She makes his learning really fun and tailored to his interests. He always comes away beaming and cried recently when we missed a session at half-term! I thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for Maths and English help for their children. She will make a significant and lasting difference straight away, and give your child’s learning the focus and attention it needs." 
Clare, parent. March 2015
"Sophie Hunter has been tutoring our daughter on a weekly basis for the past two years in maths and English. During this time the progress our daughter has made has been considerable as she has been able to dedicate time to areas that she has struggled to grasp when in school. This has led to a growth in her confidence, both in school and at home. Our daughter always enjoys her lessons with Sophie and has never complained about the lessons, which shows that Sophie has mastered the delicate art of combing learning with fun. We have and will continue to recommend Sophie to our friends." 
Rob and Jo, parents. March 2015

"Our daughter used to struggle with maths at school but after just a few months of Sophie's patient guidance in a personal environment, she jumped two sets and won Star of the Week for her renewed confidence and ability. She loves her weekly sessions with Sophie, whether English or Maths." 

Jeremy, parent. February 2015

"Since starting with Sophie, my Daughter's confidence in both maths and literacy has improved greatly.  Sophie has been a very positive, encouraging and supportive teacher enabling my Daughter to learn at her own pace whilst building upon her skills to improve her understanding. I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone considering a tutor as her approach has been the nurturing and reassuring influence my Daughter has needed to grow her confidence and ability." 
Sharon, parent. February 2015
