    Weston Tutors

    SATs 11+ Common Entrance GCSE

    Weston Tutors was founded by a retired Primary School Headteacher, who recognised that there were many children who were underachieving at school. The reasons for this underachievement were varied, but were mainly due to class size, teacher time and the child’s own lack of confidence. Through personal provision of home tuition using material specifically selected to meet a child’s need, immediate results of confidence and progress were evident.

    Weston Tutors shares your wish to support your child and to give him or her that extra help that will make all the difference to his or her confidence, progress and success.
