Welcome to Lucky Gecko… the friendly tuition company!
We offer group lessons to Year 4 and Year 5 students in preparation for secondary school. We are based in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire but also offer courses in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our courses are fun, confidence building and uniquely tailored to each individual. We believe that our students should be at the very heart of our business, so they are always our first priority.
We have also created our own range of workbooks and iOS apps which are available in our online shop.
This site should give you a good idea of who we are and what we do, but don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to talk to us in person.
Our experience with Lucky Gecko was faultless. Jack was always keen to attend the next lesson, and once the serious work had been done, Jack always enjoyed the fun games at the end of most lessons – a great balance. Thank you all for being so approachable and always there to offer support and constructive advice.
You were fantastic to take us on at a late stage & walk both my son & I through the whole 11+ process – we had NO IDEA – & you got him to a stage where he knew what he was doing & had the confidence to sit the exam & so did I!! Just wonderful. Very, very professional and not forgetting personal service. Charlie, you are a star!
A really positive experience overall. In the 11+ classes, my son learned a lot about exam techniques and the style of the tutors kept him upbeat throughout what is a difficult process. I would also commend the tutors on how well they coached the parents through the whole thing!
My daughter and I were extremely happy with the experience of working with Lucky Gecko, in fact she was upset when it came to the end of the tuition classes! Kate’s bubbly nature and way with children certainly made what could have been a tedious experience very enjoyable. My second daughter can’t wait until it’s her turn!
I cannot think of anything that could have improved on the quality, commitment and thoroughness of the tutoring and support that my daughter received. I cannot recommend Lucky Gecko highly enough.
All aspects of your service and support are highly recommended, more than once Lucky Gecko exceeded our expectations (…)Your programme of tutoring not only taught the children techniques and disciplines for their future school days, they also enabled us as parents to observe how our child worked; what motivated him and ultimately where he would be happiest for the next stage of his life. (…) We were told at the beginning that Lucky Gecko were not simply about getting a child through the 11+ but also about giving them life skills and helping identify the correct school environment for the next stage – together you achieved both of those things so thank you all once again!
Excellent tutoring & support, tailored to my son’s needs. Excellent support for parents also! My son’s tutor was very approachable & had excellent communication/people skills. The tutoring package (i.e. instructions; practice papers; e-mails etc) were excellent, and feedback regarding my son’s progress was frequent.
My daughter has been very happy with your way of teaching and has always looked forward to coming to her sessions with great confidence, knowing that she is going to be looked after and learn something new.
You have a highly professional team that engages really well with the students. You know when to make it fun and when things should be serious. From my experience you aren’t afraid to deal with difficult situations and you are honest about a child’s performance.
