An analysis of all our feedback to date has shown that the three most often-used terms for our service are:
“We looked for a tutor for my son when he was at the end of year 4 to start tutoring for preparation for the St Olave’s exam. Tutor Doctor was the only company I phoned that said they would come and visit and have tutoring at our home. This was important for me as I was a childminder at the time and the sessions would have to be while I was looking after lots of other children.
We were very impressed with the service. Joyce came round and assessed my son and interviewed him. She then matched him with an excellent tutor for 11+. Each session he was given homework which then formed the basis of the next session, marking it and going through any areas he didn’t understand. Following each session we had a written report shortly afterwards summarising his progress and a monthly update. We were pleased that the tutoring was tailored exactly to his needs and weaknesses and not just a computer programme as in some tutoring places. She was confident in my son’s abilities and he was offered a place at the school. He is now very happy there.
Our younger son has just embarked on the 11+ with another tutor who we are also very impressed with. Again, Joyce came and assessed him which showed up some interesting things that I had not thought about before. I am confident that my younger son will do well with him as he has a good rapport with the tutor and the tutor is very calming and understanding.
I would not hesitate to recommend Tutor Doctor to anyone and in fact 3 of my friends are also signed up!”
“I like the fact that there is a system upon which Tutor Doctor operates, the Big Apple. This helps to have all our work and reports systematised. The communication with TD is of good quality, and there is also consistent care for the ‘person’ so that pupils are given quality customer care and we who tutor are not just seen as employees. The additional training we receive such as X Skills is also great and helps to improve the quality of our work”

“I worked for Tutor Doctor Bromley for almost two years, first as a tutor and later on as an education consultant. The only reason I stopped working for the company was because of growing family commitments, otherwise I would still be with them now. I found the whole process straightforward. I enjoyed working with the company because of its honest and direct approach in dealing with families. I was so convinced that Tutor Doctor Bromley was selling a useful product, in terms of tuition, that I agreed to do consultations with new families just to spread the good news to them. I was happy to have my professional name and credentials associated with Tutor Doctor Bromley. Joyce Batten’s approach is a positive and fair one. She is a very approachable business woman who works hard to bring out the best in all of her tutors. She firmly believes in the importance of tuition and her enthusiasm comes across to new customers immediately.“.
“I definitely recommend this company to my family, friends, colleagues and associates as I feel that it is providing an important service for many, many families in the local community”
J. Alexander, Teacher
“Thank you Joyce. Catherine has been absolutely amazing. She has helped Alannah so much, I don’t think Ålannah would have done as well but for Catherine. She became our friend and was always so patient with Ålannah. She always arrived at my home with a smile on her face and Ålannah always looked forward to seeing her. I cannot even begin to say how much Catherine has helped Ålannah and I would like to thank her so much for this.
Joyce, it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you and your professional service and I would highly recommend your services to anyone thinking of tutoring their child. Thank you again very much and my best regards to Catherine.
Carmel Bresnihan – Beckenham
“I was very impressed with the process and efficiency that Tutor Doctor were able to find a suitable tutor at short notice, just a couple of months before my daughter’s English GCSE exams. The tutor, Gail, engaged with my daughter really well so she was able to really focus on what she had to do and she improved both her English grades in two months. Just wish we had discovered Tutor Doctor earlier.”
“We are extremely proud and pleased to let you know that our son has been awarded a Subject Prize for German which will be presented to him on Senior Speech Day. His teachers have obviously recognised the big improvement he has made in the subject, which Simone through Tutor Doctor has played a huge part in. The feedback he received after his speaking exam has given both our son and us confidence that he will achieve the A2 Grade in German he needs for his continuing Studies at University. Thanks to Tutor Doctor and Simone our son has gained great enthusiasm for the subject and is now confident enough to continue to study German at University.”

“Once again I would like to thank you for providing such a wonderful service for my daughter.”
Mum – Bromley
“I would firstly like to thank you for providing me with such an excellent and lovely tutor. She has been amazing and has helped my son no end. By the end of his time with her, he had full understanding of verbal and non verbal reasoning. He has done extremely well on his entrance exams and this is down to his effort but also the excellent work that the tutor did with him. He felt very confident and was never nervous. I am now considering tutoring for my daughter so will need to speak to you about this at some point. If possible, I would love to have the same tutor! Thank you again Joyce.I am so pleased with the results from Tutor Doctor, my son has now passed his maths GCSE . The tutor we had was so professional and gave my son the confidence and most importantly the knowledge to pass this exam . Thank you Tutor Doctor, I only wish I had contacted you sooner, from one very delighted mum!”
CL – Bromley
“My son needed quite a step up in his grades in the short time available before the English exam but I am delighted to say he got the top mark in his group! We are now awaiting the second lot of results about which we are quietly hopeful. A big thank you for the big improvement!.”
DM – Eltham
“My husband has been working well with the tutor and certainly feels he has been gaining from the English classes. He is now working and over the past few weeks the hours have been increasing not decreasing. We would like to thank you for your kind advice and support to us, it was a pleasure meeting and speaking with you. When we require TutorDoctor again I will contact you.”
NF – Forest Hill
“My son came home with some good news last week and it was followed up with a letter from his head of year – he has been moved out of extra support classes for maths and science and is now in main stream classes. So, a big thanks and onwards and upwards from here”
CR – Thornton Heath
“I’m happy to announce that our son has passed his Common Entrance 13+ examination and has been accepted at Kings Senior. We are grateful to you and all your teachers for their assistance.”
SO – Lagos
“On introduction was very efficient, personable and friendly. The tutor that was provided for our son has been 100 percent perfect. I think the most important thing at the beginning is the connection between tutor and child and we could not be happier but most importantly our son is so happy and at ease! Which proves that the way that Tutor Doctor works is right because they select almost a bespoke tutor to the child which in our opinion works!.”
