What attendees say

Students really felt the benefit of the sessions, which were instructive, insightful and full of useful tips. They also enjoyed the opportunity to learn in a different setting from someone other than me!

Politics Teacher

The usual great content and delivery from the tutor2u team. Our pupils were left in no doubt regarding the expectations of their final assessments. These sessions always help us to reinforce and consolidate the work we have covered over the two years of the A Level programme in a comprehensive and engaging manner. Plenty of insight, tricks and tips for improving exam performance, plus a multitude of supporting resources for pupils to utilise at home. Thank you once again, worth every penny!

Head of Department

I attended the workshop with my friend from school to get some extra help. Duncan and Clive were great, and made it fun to work for the day, because it was interactive and enthusiastic. My friend and I both came out saying how useful the information they gave us was, and the booklet is great as well. I have now started the online course that came with it which is great so far as well. Thank you!

Politics Student

The presenters are engaging, the activities are interactive, and the guidance is outstanding. Our pupils always come away from the day with positive things to say, and their grades have been boosted.
