My son attended Vaks and loved it! I knew we had the right place, when my son attended the initial assessment and wanted to return. Vaks did an amazing job at building his confidence in his phonics during Year 2. The team are very encouraging and nurturing too. Firm but friendly and it was a pleasure to work alongside them to assist with my sons English. Thank you.

Honestly the best tuition out there, they got me from a Predicted D to an A in a matter of months for my English GCSE- I was only expecting to leave with a C grade. The impact of this was long lasting as it helped me with my A levels and I am now going off to university. They are extremely friendly and understanding and suggest a number of resources which is just extra help to improve. They are the best tuition group out there, and I have unfortunately been through a fair few before reaching VAKS which do not even compare the the quality VAKS tuition can offer. Moreover, they are all extremely encouraging and believe that every pupil can succeed; even when they doubt themselves (which I certainly did) and go above and beyond in order to help every individual student achieve what they require, if not better. Worth every penny!
