We have been using Caledonia Tutors for the last 6 months for support with the Nat5 curriculum and have been extremely impressed with the quality of the tutors, their engagement and the standard of the tailor-made service. We have also joined with another student for shared physics lessons and this seems to work brilliantly too. We will be continuing to use this service for Highers when the time comes.

My son was struggling with Nat 5 Maths and Chemistry especially after lockdown. He now has Daniel and Aidan tutoring him twice per week and is feeling much more confident with both subjects. Setting up the sessions was really quick and easy. Both tutors have an excellent knowledge of the curriculum and teach in such a way my son understands and actually enjoys the lessons.

My daughter was struggling with two subjects for her NAT 5 exams and this was causing her to be really upset and worried. A friend recommended Caledonia Tutors as he had similar issues with his daughter. The service provided has been very professional and it was so simple to set up the online tutoring, both tutors are so friendly and helpful, they accommodate changes when required. My daughters confidence in these subjects has grown so much and I believe she is learning more here than she is from the online school lessons.

We have Ella for Chemistry. She’s patient and thorough on a subject my son finds difficult. Her lessons are definitely helping! Caledonia Tutors is well managed and very professional. They were recommended to me and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them either.

Amy was a very good tutor and she used to laugh a lot. She used to bring books for me to read which I liked. I would like to have Amy back as a tutor in the future.

Amy was kind patient and very inspiring. We saw Anna’s interest in the subject growing and developing well. She was encouraged to work hard with different learning tricks which helped boost her confidence and made her believe she had the ability to succeed. Amy went out of her way to help Anna, for which we were really grateful.

I would highly recommend Guin for tutoring. She has an engaging personality and my daughter settled in quickly with her. My daughter worked well with her and would always let her know areas she was struggling with. Guin was always honest about Lucy’s progress and offered plenty of resources to help reinforce what they had been learning in the previous lesson.

Maths Testimonials

Tia was very happy with Fraser’s Maths lessons – she felt he explained things to her with a lot of patience and in a way that helped her understand. Aidan at Caledonia Tutor’s was very helpful in setting up the lessons, and running them efficiently. We were sad to see him go and would recommend Fraser & Caledonia Tutors to anyone looking for a good Maths tutor

Stephen H - Parent

Matt as a tutor is effective at helping to explain topics with analogy and explain how things work. Another positive attribute Matt has is he pushes you, he is able to start you off and guide you when you need help, not only helping me learn but also guiding me. I’ve gained a lot of confidence with Matt’s tutoring as he reassures me when help is needed, further helping me in exams to be confident, he is also great at explaining patiently and encourages me to try but also learn from my mistakes. I would recommend Matt to others as he is an excellent tutor and can help a lot.

Callum was a very patient man with a wealth of knowledge in the field of mathematics. Extremely easy to work with as his immense skills do not only apply to his tutoring ability but to his social skills as well.

Ruairi M - Student

Can I just say that Aidan has been a godsend! What a great guy. I only wish we’d had him sooner. My daughter is feeling much better about her exam now. I think she’d forgotten a lot of things, but Aidan has been so patient and respectful with her that she’s feeling much better about it now.

Jen H - Parent

Maths (Higher)

Héloïse tutored me in mathematics over the summer. She taught me complicated mathematical concepts I had never heard of before and ensured I understood by giving lively examples and helping me through exercises that got gradually harder and harder. She was always very soft and understanding even when I struggled to understand at first, and always kept things fun and entertaining! I would definitely recommend her.

James L - Student

My son finds Zach very good at explaining different topics. He is patient, understanding and easy to approach with questions. My son is pleased Zach is also now helping with his Chemistry.

Callum was polite and hard working. He was able to connect with my teenage son and they built a good rapport. This ensured my son would work hard at his maths. If my son had any difficulties Callum would cover the issue until he understood. A genuine guy with a heart of gold.

Thomas was a super lad, who Brodie immediately connected with and whilst I didn’t ‘listen in’, Brodie said that the work they did together really did help him. Thank you for both your and Thomas help, it was much appreciated.

Martin is an excellent teacher. He is always on time, and always prepared to answer any of my questions. I’m very happy with my experience so far.

Mario B - Student

Maths (National 5)

I met Fraser for tuition for Advanced Higher Maths in January after getting a a C in the prelim. He was an excellent tutor, always explained things well and in more than one way and made sure I understood what I was doing before moving on. Fraser would prepare lessons in advance and ask what I was wanting to go over in the next lesson so no time was wasted. I am hoping to have achieved an A grade in the exam, which I couldn’t of achieved without Fraser. I would recommend him to people of all abilities.

Science Testimonials

My daughter has been working with Nav for a wee while now for her Chemistry tuition and she’s been really good at explaining things and has improved her confidence levels. She’s a lovely person who takes her time and doesn’t rush through the work so my daughter feels comfortable asking her questions she might not have in class. Highly recommend!

Nicola H - Parent

Chemistry (National 5)

Héloïse helped me with physics, chemistry and biology in my last year of high school. She was always very patient and allowed me to understand concepts I had never understood with teachers or doing personal homework. She has a very lively way of explaining difficult things and helped me work my way through the curriculum at my own pace, while being supported by her advice and exercises.

Yana B - Student

Biology (National 5)

We found our son’s tutor to be really competent. My son’s understanding was greatly improved and his grades demonstrated this. Our tutor was very kind and understanding who got on very well with my son. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Angie B - Parent

Chemistry (National 5)

Aidan has been working with my son for the last year on Maths, Chemistry and Physics. The improvement in his confidence was noticeable after the very first session and learning these subjects became a pleasure again.  He really benefitted from the opportunity to discuss difficult concepts 1:1 and has blossomed as the months have gone by, scoring all A grades in his prelim National 5’s. Aidan is friendly and approachable, always punctual and efficient, and forms a friendly, cooperative and effective working relationship with his students. We will definitely be keeping him on for support with Highers and I recommend him unreservedly.

I found Lara to be conscientious, reliable and flexible. Charlotte said Lara really helped to make her feel more confident with Chemistry. She was organised and patient – she took time with her if she didn’t understand something.

Jacqueline L - Parent

Chemistry (National 5)

We are singing your praises this morning! To think last year Dylan got a no mention for Maths and an A this year. Your tutoring was the difference! I’m also delighted with his C in Physics. And beyond the grades, you have given Dylan faith in his own abilities – and that is priceless! Thank you so much!!

Susan H - Parent

Physics (Higher)

Nav is always happy to help, explaining things well. She is friendly and is approachable to ask if I have any questions. I went from getting 27% in a school exam to 84% with Nav’s help!

Elle A - Student

Chemistry (National 5)

Fran’s general knowledge and understanding of my subject was invaluable. She is an extremely caring individual, and this resonated in the countless hours she invested in my revision. She is patient and considerate, but also pushed me to recall and retain all the information I set out to. I felt more confident going into this exam than ever before, and I would recommend Fran as an academic tutor without hesitation.

Megan G - Student

Biology (1st Year University)

All the hard work with Lara identifying problem areas on past papers really paid off with me gaining an ‘A’ in my NAT 5 exam! Thank-you Lara.

Christian R - Student

Chemistry (National 5)

The Physics exam was easy and almost exactly like past papers we had done. Your tutoring was perfect and what I needed at the time. Thank you so much and see you next year for Higher Maths and Physics.

Guin was my daughter’s tutor for Higher History last year. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to any parent looking for a History tutor. My daughter loved lessons with her and her grade improved substantially over the 4 months we had Guid as a tutor.

History (Higher)

Aidan’s tuition for the Maths and Physics content for the Cambridge University BMAT exam was absolutely invaluable. By targeting specific areas within the specification, it quickly became clear that his teaching is very closely aligned to the needs of the student. His patience and commitment absolutely cannot be overstated. He was able to really boost my confidence in areas that were previously my weaknesses, allowing me to walk into the test with so much more confidence than I had expected. Recently, I have been offered a place to study medicine at the University of Cambridge – something that would never had been possible had I not achieved a high BMAT score.

Alex D - Student

Martin is an absolutely wonderful tutor. After I had my first computing session with him, I felt like it made the whole course easier, because he explains things so clearly. He’s helped me so much, particularly when I have important exams coming. We programme together, and he shows me tips that I didn’t know before.
