What people say...
We believe that our clients are our best advertisers and we’re proud of the fact that almost all of our business comes from personal recommendations. So, here are some of the nice things people have had to say about us in the past!
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.-
A group of sincere people who really do care for the child as well as the results. Arran worked hard because he truly respected and liked his tutor, Kate.-
Emma went above and beyond for us, and no matter what the outcome of the 11 plus I believe Olivia will have benifited from this experience and will have excellent organisational skills and discipline for secondary school. Emma has been incredibly supportive and has provided fun, quality teaching for my daughter. She always had a smile and made my daughter feel welcome and special.-
We cannot speak more highly of Lucky Gecko and their tutors. From the very first assessment, when in just one hour we were provided with an evaluation of our child which immediately screamed out to us as ‘nail on the head’ accurate, we were confident that this was not only a group of fun, approachable and energetic tutors but most importantly as extremely skilled and knowledgeable experts in how to teach and enthuse children. Our confidence was well placed. The 11+ is renowned to be extremely stressful for the candidates, but I do not believe that this will be the case with the children that Lucky Gecko teach. Not once did we feel that our son was ‘over-loaded’ with an inordinate mountain of work, actually in many ways we felt an approach which encouraged parents to resist piling on the work. Despite having to spend 90 minutes of his precious weekend going to 11+ tutoring, our son not once complained about having to attend and in-fact looked forward to going to the sessions which he often described as fun. All in all we feel that Lucky Gecko achieved a great result for our family without the drama often associated with this very challenging test with an approach which seems to value work ethic and broader skills rather than simply ‘passing the test’-
My daughter has been lucky enough to benefit from both individual lessons and group 11 plus lessons from Lucky Gecko. I struggle to think of what more we could have asked for from a tuition company. All of the tutors are very skilled at what they do. They know their subject matter well and they also understand children; how to teach and progress them. At the same time they manage to make the lessons fun. In the run up to the 11 plus they managed to keep the children (and parents!) as calm as possible. The small class sizes gave our daughter the best of both worlds: individual attention but also a level of friendly competition. I really felt as though Charlie got to know my daughter well, with true insight into what makes her tick and she was flexible and innovative in her approach to my daughters specific learning needs. Lucky Gecko’s whole approach is highly personalised, very organised and extremely friendly.-
We would just like to say a big thank you for all the help and support you have given Sam. Choosing Lucky Gecko was a fantastic decision, Sam’s academic ability and confidence has come on tremendously in the last year. We have been greatly impressed by the professionalism, attention to detail and continuous individual support for each student. Sam could not have been better prepared for the 11+ exam thanks to the effort put in to ensuring that the tutoring was tailored to fit his exact needs. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lucky Gecko as you are totally outstanding!-
The tutors at Lucky Gecko fall over themselves to be helpful and to ensure that they provide the support that your child needs. They are enthusiastic, committed and offer a fun way of learning. My daughter enjoyed her sessions and we felt fully supported throughout the process. When we decided not to go down the 11+ route, Luke provided us with an alternative schedule of work which met our daughter’s requirements and supported us in the entrance process for two different schools. I would highly recommend Lucky Gecko to any parent and child regardless of the ambitions and needs.-
The key reason for tutoring our daughter was to give her the confidence to do her best – Lucky Gecko certainly did this. She enjoyed her classes, thought the tutor was great and went into her 11+ happy and armed with the tips and tools to ensure that she could give it 100%. Selected or not, the course has certainly been a positive experience for all of us and the tutoring for the new structure of the test has meant her school work has improved too!-
