What Parents are Saying
"Huge, huge recommendation. What a special team and approach Red Bird Tutoring have. Sue Michaels and her fab team have literally been a port in the storm for us during lock down. They have been supporting and enhancing home learning for my secondary school child for 7 weeks now. The tutoring has engaged and supported him amazingly and we're so grateful that we found them as a company. The tutors have been so kind and helpful - his confidence has soared. They've been a huge support and a friendly face throughout. Big thanks from us :-)"
"The difference that Red Bird has made to my son in the few weeks that he has attended has been nothing short of miraculous."
"Red Bird have been amazing with my Year 11 daughter. She was working at 3/4 in Maths, and today we got her results and are ecstatic to report that she has achieved a 7.
Red Bird can absolutely take credit for this success; they have built her confidence no end over the last 6 months and helped her in the areas she was struggling."
"With the help of Red Bird Tutoring, my daughter received an Academic Progress Award today, which would not have been possible without the help, support and care she got from this amazing team. Thank you all so very much."
"I can't rate Red Bird Tutoring highly enough for their absolute support for my son."
"We started our son at Red Bird Tutoring in May 2019. He went from and expected grade 2 in Maths to an actual grade 4 obtained. I look back with regret on the missed opportunity I had to start him sooner. Who knows, he could have had a 6 or 7."
"Red Bird really make the effort to find out what makes each child tick, which is so important when inspiring young people to learn well.
My son willingly gives up a chunk of his valuable loafing time every Saturday morning for his Red Bird sessions - no complaints - and he comes out smiling and happy to tell me what he's been learning.
I consider this very high praise, coming from a teenager and I am happy that his confidence in this subject is growing well in advance of his GCSEs."
"From the first GCSE English language session that my son attended, his confidence has grown."
"My son says he wishes his experience at school was like that at Red Bird. He feels able to ask questions and learn without feeling under pressure."
What LEARNERS are Saying
"They're an amazing group of people with wonderful personalities, who would go to any extent to help you get where you need to be. Thank you, Red Bird Tutoring, I really enjoyed attending.
"Everybody is so kind and they can really help you out when needed. They have made me feel calm about SATS and I have learned how to calm myself."
"Red Bird is amazing! They have the best teachers who are kind. I feel good about SATS now - I feel calm."
