Do you charge for assessment of a child?

No. We do not charge for assessment and assessment is 100% free.

How you decide group about my child?

The child will be assessed based on the information you provide. He will be assessed in accordance with the level/grade he/she is in. The test will be done in the subject you wish your child to enrol. Like for learning maths subject only assessment test will be done in maths and for English the assessment will be done in English. We put the child in the same group in accordance with his/her level/performance of the assessment test result.

Sometimes, based on the assessment, if it is considered that the child initially needs one- to-one tutoring, we may provide the child one-to-one support and bring his/her confidence at par with the group and then put him/her into that particular group. Sometimes design groups in accordance with the level/learning ability of the child to get along with the group and improve accordingly.

Our ultimate aim is provide support to your child and improve him/her in that particular subject.

What are your per hour rates?

There are different rates for different grades and are set according to different level and grades. The rates have been fixed in three different groups and also depend on the number of subjects taken for study at Excellent Tutors. Thus rate goes down up to £6 per hour if someone takes 3 subjects .So the more subjects you take, the cheaper it is.

The rates vary if you pay monthly and they bit cheaper in comparison to Pay As You Go rate. Therefore, we advise to choose monthly payment plan.

You can call the centre or visit us for further details and explanation. Our member of the staff can provide guidance and advise in this regard.

The rate list is available in the rates section of the website.

What is duration of a session?

We consider enough time must be spent in one sitting to get the result. Thus our session is of 2 hour duration. From our experience, we consider this is the ideal time which a child can spend to learn and concentrate.

Can I take one hour for each subject?

No. We are sorry that we don’t conduct one hour session.

Can I pay on weekly basis?

Yes, you can. You can pay last week fee and first week in advance and continue to pay on a weekly basis. If you decide any time to leave you can give one week prior notice and adjust the last weekly payment for that week. However, we always advise parents to pay on monthly basis as monthly payments are cheaper as compared to pay-as-you-go rates.

Do you get along with schools and help a child with class homework?

We strictly follow our own schedule and methodology in accordance with the child’s learning level based on the assessment we have done. We continue with our own pace and increase the capacity of the child. Ultimately the child is able to improve his/her position in the class and perform much better than he/she was doing before. With the passage of time the child will be able to do his/her homework himself/herself. Definitely our purpose at Excellent Tutors is to improve the child’s performance in school and achieve better results in the exams. Our experience shows that most of the kids start performing better in the class within 2 -3 months of their learning at Excellent Tutors.
