We’re a successful private tuition agency – we know that because it’s what our students and parents (and tutors) tell us. This is what some have had to say about working with 121 Home Tutors tuition agency.

“Hi Alison, I wanted to let you know that Alex received offers from all 3 schools – SGS, CHS and King’s. He seemed to enjoy the exam days and relished the interview experience… just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and support. Alex was well prepared and confident going into the exam hall each day. Kind regards, Jayne.” 11+/entrance test prep.

“Hi Alison, As you may remember, you have supplied tutors for me over the past couple of years. I should say that the last tutor, John Tiplady, you supplied for GCSE History, was superb. He demonstrated a huge commitment to working with my daughter, having planned and prepared sessions carefully, taking Leah’s particularly needs into account. His materials were very good and he helped Leah gain confidence in a subject that she had previously found very challenging. As a non-qualified teacher, he particularly demonstrated exceptional skills.” Mike S

“I first learnt about 121 Home Tutors when I met Alison socially. I have used them for GCSE French and Maths and I would use them again now I need for find an English Tutor for GCSE English.”
– Maggie Evans, Wilmslow

“Aidan has been absolutely brilliant!  He has helped my daughter enormously – even recording her lessons (at no extra charge) so that she can verbally practice what she has learnt during her evening lesson. Her improvement has been so marked that her German school teacher phoned me to congratulate my daughter on her excellent improvement and her achievement of an A in a recent end of term exam. Aidan also put my daughter at ease as she isn’t very confident in front of strangers.”
– Sara Mellor

“James had a really productive session with Mark. Thank you very much for initiating the contact. Given the success with Mark, please could you put me in touch with someone for English Language at A2 level. Thanks.”
– Stephen Griffith

“Thought you might like to know Andrew got a C grade in the maths exams [he was entered at foundation level and gained the highest possible grade]. We are all delighted and thank you for all your help… we couldn’t have done it without you. He is now able to go to Lymm High School.”
– Mark Davin

“My daughter Halima received tuition from Alison for 6 months prior to taking her GCSEs this summer. Alison tutored Halima for triple science and mathematics and provided an excellent and thoroughly professional service. Halima found Alison to be both helpful and very knowledgeable in the subject matter and approach to the examinations. She got 7 A*’s and 3 A’s, Physics and Chemistry – A *, Maths and Biology – A [she later had biology remarked and got an A*]. Halima did really well in her GCSE’s and we would like to thank you for your great help, without which Halima would have been unable to even write some of the subjects she has now passed.”
