Rania was always available for my daughter and helped her in many subjects. She was excellent..

Simon's tutor definitely allowed him to pass math this year. He was failing at the beginning and he ended his year with 88%. A huge thank you!.
We really like Jean-Francois' work. He gives everything of himself for the success of our child. Bravo!.
Congratulations to your whole team and particularly to Andrea who, through her advice and careful attention, helped our son get his self-confidence back..
Excellent service. We will continue next year. Our place is already reserved for September..

The ministry of Education should take your work into consideration. You could be in charge of the end-of-year exams, the slower students would be less stressed. A tutor per student makes all the difference.

I am writing to you to mention that I am very happy with the organization and especially with the tutor Saâd B. In fact, I wish to highlight his professionalism, his seriousmess, and his desire to help his students succeed. My daughter mentioned that he explains things very well and transmits information very quickly, he has a good pedagogy as well. My daughter, as I mentioned when we first signed-up, has an attention deficit and her grades since the start of high school have been between 50 and 65%. This year, for the first time, she got 92%, which is a great achievement! This is thanks to the teacher's patience, know-how and joy of teaching, his availability to answer questions, his desire to help his students succeed, and his encouragement. I thank you and I hope Saâd will stay within your organisation for a long time such that all students can benefit from his teaching..

Also, thanks to the work he did with his tutor, our son has manifested greater confidence in his mastery of the subject..
Thank you for the services you offer because we were in a difficult situation with Samuel's school work. Thankfully you exist!.
