I absolutely love my role at VAKS - so rewarding watching the children grow in confidence and ability. The team are incredible at providing the best possible support for the children's progress!

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!

At our St Albans tuition centres we tutor children aged between 4 and 18 years old at every educational stage from reception year to GCSE. Whether your child is in early years, or preparing for an entrance exam at any level, we offer an unrivalled learning programme to achieve success for your child.  

In the area, we have an outstanding reputation for children gaining entry to some of the most sought after academic secondary schools throughout Hertfordshire and London.

Our 4 Plus, 7 Plus, 11 Plus and 13 Plus programmes will equip your child for the exam and beyond.

Our GCSE results year on year, are well above the national average of schools and we boast huge successes in English, maths and science.

All of our tailor made Vaks maths and English material has been created in line with the National Curriculum and is designed to work in harmony with classroom learning.


Why choose Vaks?

Vaks is often described by parents and children as a ‘learning club’, where students are individually enriched and challenged.

Whether your child is flying through school or finding it difficult to keep up, we’ll be there to build their confidence and enthusiasm, ensuring we deliver academic success for your child.

Our experienced, handpicked tutors are trained in the Vaks method so that they can inspire, encourage and motivate every student to unlock their potential.

Our student success rates speak for themselves, with – to date – 100% of our children who sit entrance exams receiving an offer from at least two of their chosen school choices in Hertfordshire or London. At 11 plus we offer a three term transformational programme which we pledge will deliver success for your child above and beyond the examination day itself.  


The Vaks tutoring method

Whatever learning stage your child is at and whatever learning style they prefer, our interactive teaching methods will transform your child’s learning. We begin the process with an educational assessment which is free of charge. This takes approximately one hour and is carefully designed to give a detailed insight into your child’s strengths and weakness. After the assessment, we offer parents detailed feedback with our recommendations for how to make improvements and set goals to develop their child as a learner.

We offer expert tuition for every learning stage, subject and ability via our unique tutoring method which incorporates:


learning through seeing


learning through listening


learning through moving, doing and touching

Our tailored tutoring approach means we are able to support children of all abilities and every learning stage.

We tutor in small groups, with each group peer matched according to their ability This is an effective way of accelerating learning development which increases each child’s confidence and delivers results.

St Albans tutors

Our experienced and passionate team of tutors in our St Albans centres interact with each child throughout the entire learning process to bring out the very best in their students. We believe in building confidence and offer a tailored approach to inspire each student to achieve their learning goals.

All Vaks tutors hold enhanced DBS checks which we renew every three years.
