Success Stories

We give your child what you never had

“Saba was struggling in maths, she would get frustrated and give up.

After six months of tutoring we were pleasantly surprised with the rapid progress she was making and her achievement of Grade A* was amazing!  We were over the moon. Now Saba is progressing onto sixth form to study Mathematics and Sciences.  We found the service fantastic and it’s the best investment you can put into your child.

We highly recommend A Star Tutoring to serious parents who are ambitious and want their child to achieve the best.”

“At school Isabella’s grades weren’t as we perhaps thought,

she’s done extra homework and we’ve tried with her too but to be fair since she started to go to A Star she’s really improved.  She went from the bottom of the class to the top sets. It’s worked well. I definitely recommend you get in touch with A Star,

it’s certainly worked for our daughter so I can’t see why it wouldn’t work for other people – it’s been a great help.”
