St Nicholas Preparatory School & Nursery

23 Princes Gate, Knightsbridge, London SW7 1PT, UK – 020 7225 1277

St Nicholas is a friendly school where kids are happy to go. They have a fantastic library (and librarian!) overlooking an amazing private playground. The location, in front of Hyde Park, is so convenient for all kind of sport activities. My son was sad to leave and soon my daughter will be.

‘A happy child learns better’ is the school’s motto and the truth is, everything is at hand here to get and keep a child happy. Small number classes, dedicated teachers, rules and rewards, great facilities - Hyde Park as a sport ground!, the Imperial college’s sport centre, a ‘real’ back garden as garden, a big library, good food, and a variety of before/after school clubs. Plus attractive day outings, bush craft and ski holiday.. As for parents, there are an approchable and reactive staff, strong values, weekly newsletters with detail of what was taught, talks on the curriculum, exams and other parenting issues.. The school has an international audience which broadens the horizons and it also offers an integrated French CNED. My eight years old daughter can’t stand being sick: she misses school!

Charterhouse Square School & Nursery

40 Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6EA, UK – 020 7600 3805

Charterhouse Square School is founded by original headmistress Jamie Mason with school fees set at £425 per term! Over the course of the next two decades we go on to gain a reputation for all-round academic performance. In March the school becomes part of Cognita – a worldwide group of schools founded by Sir Chris Woodhead, former head of Ofsted. In December Caroline Lloyd takes over as headmistress fifteen years after first joining the school. When space becomes available in an adjacent building, the school expands to occupy a total of seven floors in our much-coveted Barbican location. This allows the school to add a dedicated Early Years area, a school library and an art room. n further work to improve the school site, the entire basement and ground floor of number 40 is completely remodelled. The addition of bi-folding glass doors to link our Green Room to its outdoor sand and water area is a particular hit with the children. Charterhouse Square School celebrates its 30-year anniversary with a surprise party for the children and a ball for parents, teachers and friends of the school. The school is also featured in The Good Schools Guide for the first time.

Adult Education

Westminster Adult Education Service

Lupus Street, Pimlico, London SW1V 3AT, UK – 020 7297 7297

really good teachers that make such an amazing amount of effort! but unfortunately i do feel that this college lacks resources. people with disabilities in the class require personal assistance ... unfortunately these poor people are left to deal with there own situations or the teacher has to take time out to show them. when i studied my graphic design level 2 the people in my class .. i made some good friends and i couldn't have asked for a better teacher but again i do feel that we lacked resources. The people at reception ... some of them are really friendly and some of them are just really unhelpful. The facilities at this college really do need to be improved but if your looking for somewhere as just a stepping stone then definetly book in ... the teachers are very experienced.

Bodyology Massage School

Student Central Building, University of London, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HY, UK – 020 7100 7903

I discovered Bodyology School of Massage thanks to one of my friend who trained by Bodyology as well. It was such a nice discovery while I was thinking to become massage therapist and looking for a good, reliable school here in London where invest my money and time to get a professional certification. It was a lovely journey with Dror, Simon and Sally, wonderful and passionate teachers. A memorable experience with all my classmates as well as colleagues! Bodyology is an excellent way to introduce yourself in Holistic Massage, learning many different massage techniques. Studying anatomy, physiology, pathology and practicing a lot, makes the difference in starting your career as massage therapist. Thanks Bodyology

As a massage therapist , I've been awarded top rated salon 2017. As so many clients rated my massage treatments with 5 stars. I would like to say Thank You!! To The Bodyology Massage School, for providing a high standard of training. The theory classes were interactive, this helped me to retain information for longer. In the practical classes, we learnt how to tailor massage treatments to each clients individual needs. My clients always comment on how much they benefited from my massage treatments. As a graduate I continue to learn from Bodyology, though the virtual campus content and having access to the videos from my practical and theory classes.

Bright Young Things: Private Tutors in London and Tuition Centres

8a Lower Grosvenor Pl, Westminster, London SW1W 0EN, UK – 020 7723 0506

I have worked with over 8 London agencies and I can assure you Bright Young Things are by far the best to work with. As well as securing me more work than any other agency, they are a super fun and friendly bunch of people to work with. It was clear from day one that they genuinely care about the tutor's experience with the agency and this really shines through when you work with them.

A lovely tutor business. A great team

Tutor House

2 Soho Square, Soho, London W1D 3PX, UK – 020 3950 0320

Tutor House not only provided for our daughter a way forward at a difficult time, but a transformational experience. Over two years two fine tutors home-schooled our daughter in English Literature and Politics, which enabled her to complete her qualifications and for which she received an A* in both subjects. This was not an easy assignment. Our daughter suffers from a rare and complicated medical condition which had led to her being removed from school entirely. During this period she was frequently ill and her otherwise productive sessions were interrupted as a consequence. Throughout both tutors continued to set a very high standard of academic achievement, and she persisted, trying to meet it as best she could. In January, we received the happy news that she has been offered a place at Cambridge University, which she has accepted. What seemed to us at the start a very daunting mountain to climb has resulted, through her work with Tutor House, in a place at the mountaintop. I can't assess this wonderful turn of events without acknowledging that profound contribution which has had the power to change the course of a single life so dramatically, and for which we, as parents, are naturally so grateful.

Tutor house helped me with my resits in PE and Psychology helping me go from 3Bs at A level to A*AB. Both Alex and Inez were great with helping me with exam technique and confidence leading up to the exam. They also advised with personal statement writing for UCAS and university, giving me helpful tips and advice which contributed to me getting an unconditional offer to study at the University of Birmingham. I would really recommend tutor house, their tutors are knowledgeable and motivated to help you get your best grade.

Tavistock Tutors

30 Brewer St, Soho, London W1F 0SS, UK – 020 7803 1190

I am currently being tutored by a Tutor called Sebastien Krier, he has a great approach, friendly, helpful and very kind. For me what makes Sebastien stand out is his nature of trying to help people succeed and treats his students like he would want to be treated. His also a man of his word so any promise that he makes he would ensure that his promise is made out. I believe this is crucial I'm very lucky to be in touch with a tutor like Seb, I believe I've met someone who I can talk and ask help anytime of my life !!

Tavistock Tutors put me in touch with Angus who tutored me this summer in preparation for my undergraduate exams. Angus was extremely accommodating of the lesson plans that I wanted and had great understanding of work we were doing. Angus was also extremely clear in explaining things in a way that I could understand that I couldn’t before his help. His teaching style of making me think of the answer, even when I had absolutely no idea, was extremely beneficial as it required me to always be focused rather than him just telling me the answer and me running on autopilot. I would recommend Angus to anyone needing organic chemistry help.
