Not just your average tutors
A bit of background…
Lucky Gecko was founded in 2005 by Charlotte (Charlie) Boad, whose aim was to create a unique team of tutors that went the extra mile for their clients and always put the students first. Soon, word spread and the business began to grow, and in 2007 Kate Bridges joined the fledgling company, followed by Emma in 2008 and Luke in 2009. Together, they developed a range of courses, materials and mobile apps, all with the emphasis on making learning fun.
So what makes us different?
In a nutshell, everyone at Lucky Gecko genuinely cares about their students. This is not a typical ‘nine to five’ job, and all of our tutors are extremely dedicated to making sure that every child has the best possible experience with us. We treat each of our students as individuals and we take the time to really get to know them. We are lucky enough to have the freedom to tackle subjects in the way that best suits each child and we tailor-make our tuition programmes to focus on their own specific areas of difficulty.
We like to encourage the idea that, with a Lucky Gecko tutor, our students are part of a team. We support them when they need it, but also encourage them to have the confidence to work independently, so that they can move forward and succeed without us. We don’t believe in ‘over-tutoring’ and our goal is always to get students to a point where they no longer feel that they need help.
All of this is only possible because of the great team of like-minded people who work here. So, to find our more about them, go to our tutors page.
Don't just take our word for it...
Lucky Gecko is both a conscientious & professional tutoring establishment. Our son was tutored by Luke and I can honestly say he looked forward to attending the sessions each week. Luke is a wonderful tutor and is able to quickly develop a trusted & respected relationship with the students…The organisation as a whole is extremely well run and I have been very impressed by the administration. We were always informed of changes to the scheduled lessons and always given options if additional sessions were being laid on.We highly appreciated the open door policy & always felt that if we had a problem that it would be dealt with immediately. Thankfully never required.
I can’t praise or thank Lucky Gecko and in particular Charlie enough for all the help and support that she gave my son and I to get us through the whole 11+ experience. The whole package was excellent; the weekly lessons, just the right amount of work between them, summer work tailored to his individual needs, practice papers and mocks. The feedback about how he was doing was always positive and encouraging. Most importantly Charlie gave him the confidence to believe he could do it. He has learnt skills and knowledge that will help him in all his education not just in passing his 11+. Thank-you so much, I’m not sure either of us would have got through it without Charlie!
My daughter actually enjoyed coming to the classes! Really dedicated tutors and really enjoyed the personal contact.
