My encounter with Smart academics is through Karen. She is brilliant! She has been tutoring my two kids for about 2 years and she has been able to get the best out of them but they still enjoy her lesson. She has an individual approach to the kids; she try to understand their needs then teach them. That is a rare skill.
Company response : Thank you very much Rafah
I get so much job satisfaction from working with your very intelligent children. It's always a pleasure to work with learners who engage with their teachers, soak up the work and run with it! Ask any teacher...

I chose Smart Ed UK as an exam centre to re-sit GCSE Maths as a mature student. Karen was extremely welcoming, immediately put me at ease and offered kind words of support and encouragement. Smart Ed UK is an ideal choice for mature students uncomfortable with the idea of sitting exams in a school or college setting. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an exam centre.
Company response : Thank you Michelle
It was an absolute pleasure - especially to send you your successful result!

Excellent tutor! Not only did Karen help our son to achieve a C in his English GCSE but she encouraged him and helped improve his self confidence and self esteem. Can't recommend her highly enough! Liz and Edward Bilcliffe

Very happy with Smart Ed UK. They took me on very last Minute to sit my GCSE Science exam and if it wasn't for them I would not be at the current stage in my education. I fully recommend their extremely kind and very professional service to anyone.
