My daughter (S2) had a great experience of maths tutoring with Caledonia Tutors. Anisha was exactly what we'd hope for in a tutor. My daughter definitely felt it helped her exam performance. Taking a break but would use again.

Excellent tutoring service which was tailored to my son’s individual requirements. Communication was excellent and everything about the service was very slick from start to finish including the clear payment process. The improvement in my son’s grades was remarkable. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Tutoring was very good
I found the tutoring to be of high quality and my son really engaged well with Allen which is unusual! My son was undertaking maths NAT 5 and I will give better placed to give a review when he gets his grade. If he passes I will be very impressed!

I am so happy I discovered Caledonia Tutors. I live in a rural area in the Highlands and was finding it hard to find a tutor for my son locally. After searching online I came across Caledonia Tutors - and I haven't looked back! I answered a few thorough questions to help them find the best tutor to suit my son's needs. Jessie has been tutoring my son in Higher Physics for the past few months and I can't speak highly enough of her. Jessie's knowledge, enthusiasm and love of her subject shines through, and she has not only helped my son with his learning of the subject but has infected him with her passion for it too - just when his was starting to wane under the pressure of looming exams! Jessie is friendly and approachable yet professional and focussed, and I would not hesitate to recommend her. Jessie: thank you - we will miss you when this is all over!
For anybody unsure about the online aspect of tutoring I would say that our young people are very familiar with using digital technology for their lessons already - many, like my son, are issued tablets in high school, and most have had experience of online learning during the Covid lockdowns. Taking the travelling aspect out of the tutoring equation also helps, not to mention that online we have access to a larger pool of appropriate and suitable tutors rather than just settling for whoever is available locally.
Thanks to Caledonia Tutors and Jessie, my son is now much happier with his understanding of Physics and is feeling much more confident about his upcoming Higher exam.

Great, patient maths tutor
Anna was a great support for my daughter who was studying for Maths Higher exam. She was very patient and worked well with my daugther. It was a bonus that she was also available to answer those small silly questions every once in awhile, when not in a session.

Adian of Caledonia Tutors was very easy and professional to work with. Nice to see a young company, full of young students and professionals working with the next generation. Thank you.

Eve is excellent
Eve started tutoring my son in Chemistry recently and I cannot believe how quickly he has grown in confidence. Covid and lockfowns had taken a toll but with Eve's excellent teaching he is now really well prepared and feeling confident about his exam this week. She is calm, encouraging and engaging and i would have no hesitation in recommending Eve
