What Others Say About Us
The centre was recommended to me by a friend and it was the best decision to choose Primus. For the last 12 months, my daughter attended the 11+ preparation sessions at the centre. We have been extremely pleased with the level of teaching and professionalism and dedication by the team providing the support to the children.
I can't recommend this Primus Tuition centre enough especially the individuals who run the centre. So professional and supportive, Yahya is always there to help. My daughter & son attended classes for GCSE's & 11+ preparation respectively. The tutors are highly experienced & are teaching at an outstanding level. The Science & Maths teachers are exemplary. Thank you Ben & Pedram!
Primus Tuition has helped my kids in preparing for 11+ and GCSCs, and my experience was great with the standard of education and guidance provided. They have experienced teachers. I recommend parents who are looking for good tuitions in this area.
My son attended the centre last year to help him with GCSE EXAMS and he achieved outstanding results . He was usually getting 4’s and 5’s but since he attended the tuition centre he managed to get 7’s in his exams. Thanks
A professional and dedicated team that provide an excellent educational service. Highly recommended.
A professional, high quality service run by two highly qualified and experienced individuals who know how to get the best from their students. My son has been there for three months, and since then, has received an award from school for doing well in Maths as well as coming top in his class in the Term One assessment. The price is excellent value for money, but the quality of the teaching is what makes me give Primus Education a big thumbs up.
