Sebastian has been an incredible tutor for me. As soon as the IO was introduced to me, I began looking for tutors, and I really hit the nail on the head with Sebastian. Thanks to his expertise, I was able to do an excellent job on my IO as well as have a successful start to my HLE. I highly recommend Sebastian as a tutor to anyone who is looking to get to the highest band markers.

I worked online with TutorsPlus and Steve, for help in Physics over the past several years with the hope to get top results on my exams. Not only did I do better than I hoped in my exams, I also looked forward to my meetings with him every week. He knew exactly how to explain things to me in a way that I could understand AND remember. Thanks to Steve, I will continue to focus on Physics as well as Math and Business at the University. Thank you so much.

I worked with Tutorsplus when the company just started and Alex was very friendly and supportive. She always made pupil suggestions according to my preferences and there were plenty of opportunities to fit around my available hours. I really enjoyed the variety of ages, lessons and different needs of the students I taught, and met some lovely families. Alex was always available to give any help, offer resource advice, answer questions, give feedback. It was a great experience with Tutorsplus.

I had Andrea as my french biology tutor, she was able to make me completely confident in my abilities, and helped me boost my grades. Thanks to her I was able to secure the my desired grade and be 2 points away from exceeding my expectations. Her teaching methods were challenging at first but after adjusting to both of our desires, we were able to work very effectively. I would highly recommend using Tutorsplus, as they offer great services and tutors and their platform is very user friendly.

Child centred approach. Very helpful and supportive. Great communication especially in the beginning when setting up tutors. Tutors were professional, they communicated with the school. I was able to step back as I trusted the tutors. My son's maths results jumped up considerably in a short amount of time. I highly recommend TutorsPlus.

I had two tutors from Tutors Plus, a French tutor who was terrific working with me as an adult learner and the second, a math tutor who worked with my daughter over a few years. Both were a perfect match for our needs, and I couldn’t have asked for better tutors. TutorsPlus and the tutors were responsive to our needs. My daughter's tutor was great with the math as well as in building her self-esteem. It was great to have the same tutor crossing over a long period because it provided us with a good consistency. The tutor undoubtedly helped dispel those mum daughter tensions, which grow when mum thinks she can be a teacher.

My experience with TutorsPlus was excellent. I am a final year IB student, and I just recently finished a weeks worth of tutoring with a range of tutors. Since then, I have gone from being the student stressed about my upcoming exams to a student that answers every question in class! I would highly recommend this program; it is first class. Thank you tutor plus!

I contacted TutorsPlus for help with my daughter who was struggling painfully with IB SL Bio. They listened to our needs and quickly put us in touch with Wendy. I wasn’t sure how tutoring by skype would work out but it has been great. During the tutoring sessions they speak face to face while at the same time sharing documents and worksheets on a split screen. Thanks to Wendy's expert tutoring, my daughter has gained more confidence, is doing much better with her marks and actually looks forward to her weekly session.

My experience of IB revision courses at TutorsPlus is first class. My son did the courses for higher maths and chemistry. The tutors leading both courses were highly experienced teachers. My son had been predicted a grade 5 in higher maths. He got a grade 6 (only 1 per cent off a 7). He received a grade 6 in chemistry. All communication from TutorsPlus was clear and comprehensive. A thorough pre-assessment was carried out. Class sizes were small. I have no hesitation in recommending TutorsPlus revision courses.

Exceeded our expectations !! The increase in our son's SAT score as a result of the work that two of the TutorsPlus teachers did with our son over a few months made an incredible positive difference. He was accepted into his institution of choice in the United States. Also very flexible and understanding in scheduling of sessions.

Hello, I wanted to let you know that my son's IB results came back today and he did very well in maths. Andrea Ludwig has been his tutor for the last two years, and helped bring him from an "I hate maths" perspective to one where he has been happy to engage again in a subject he used to love.Andrea was not only good with him regarding the subject itself, but also took care of him psychologically. She understood when he needed to be pushed, when he needed just to drill and practice, and when he needed to rest. My son enjoyed his time with her (even if he was always late), and they had a good working relationship.Thank you for an excellent service.

We have always been impressed with the service that TutorsPlus provides. Our daughter is at 4P in 2019 in a bi-lingual school in Geneva. We initially contacted them summer of 2018 before school started to give our daughter the opportunity to practice French and build confidence. She gained confidence from these sessions and have progressed a lot at 4P. This year, she has her exam for "Epreuves Cantonales' and when we asked her last week what areas she needs to improve - which is grammar, we immediately contacted TutorsPlus and they were able to coordinate our Tutor - Anais, who always have given excellent sessions and built a good rapport with our daughter. She is very professional and comes with materials based on the areas the child needs to work on. We highly recommend TutorsPlus!

My husband and I had the pleasure of speaking with Alex at TutorsPlus for an Educational Advisory/School Choice session. It was an invaluable conversation, that gave us great insights and perspective to inform our school choice. We have lived in Geneva for many years, yet despite having a lot of input from friends & word of mouth, we found the school decisions to be challenging to navigate. This session and the perspective & insights Alex offered were absolutely invaluable. We are now confident in our school decision for our children.I would highly recommend this service to anyone! If you are musing over school options for your children - absolutely speak with TutorsPlus. Thank you Alex & the TutorsPlus team!

I can honestly say our move to Switzerland was made so much easier based on the service we received from TutorsPlus. Thank you TutorsPlus I cannot recommend you guys enough.
