The Exeter Tuition Centre is conveniently located in central Exeter, just minutes from the University, both railway stations and all shopping. There is plenty of parking in the car-park just outside and behind the Centre.

The Park House is a pretty, listed, Georgian building which has a special atmosphere of its own.  It is a spacious and tranquil environment for children to learn in. The building is well away from any main roads, so it’s safe and simple to drop off and pick up your children.

We have a comfortable lounge area where you can wait for your child, and take advantage of our free WiFi.

Audrey

Audrey started life in Zimbabwe where she grew up wild and free. She trained to be a nurse and then travelled to the UK to train as a Midwife. She married and started her own family, quickly realising that shift work and family life did not go together very easily. Undaunted, she retrained, doing a 4 year teaching degree, specialising in Science at Greenwich University.

Audrey has taught in a variety of schools in both South East London and in Devon. Her experience ranges from Special Needs to extending the gifted and talented pupils. She teaches all primary subjects including Maths and English up to KS3. She has a great deal of experience in preparing children for the 11 plus exams as she taught in London Borough of Bexley, which still has the grammar school system.

Audrey is a story teller and a published author. She has written ‘The Dragon Princess’ a modern fairy-tale for all ages. This book is being used in secondary schools for the lower ability English classes in KS3. Her second book, ‘Fireworks Night’ is due out soon and is aimed at younger children.

Audrey brings to the centre a passion for helping children to reach their full potential. She believes that education should be exciting and fun, preparing each child to be an independent learner.

Our Classes

In every one of our Classes your child will follow their own personal programme, working one-to-one with their tutor in a small group environment.

As your child progresses, their programme is adjusted to meet their exact needs at all times. Dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD and other needs are addressed by our experienced teachers. Your input is always welcome, especially at the end of the session when your tutor will discuss how your child has done, give homework, and chat about the next steps.

Our teaching method guarantees more confidence and motivation for your child.

Our Beliefs

At our Centre our teachers believe that every child needs and deserves a good grasp of the basic skills of language and number.

But we know that sometimes children lack the confidence they need to get the best out of school. Sometimes children need just that little bit of extra help. And sometimes the right help at a crucial moment can make all the difference. We believe that improving confidence, motivating through success and developing focus and concentration will bring the brightest possible future to your child.
