What People Say

Very positive, professional, friendly service

Excellent, high impact interventions

My son is in Year 8. He has struggled at times at school, switching off when he has not had a good relationship with teachers. He started weekly lessons for English and Maths in September 2019. He is already benefiting and showing more confidence. My son has always needed a teacher who can encourage him and motivate him in order for him to benefit from learning. I am pleased to say that a good relationship was immediately established and he is enjoying these extra lessons and is always positive. As parents we are also kept up to speed with his progress. Communication is excellent.– Julie C
For effective, time limited and high impact interventions look no further than Busy Brains. Busy Brains worked with a group of our Y2 children who were at risk of not meeting age related expectation in writing. Busy Brains carefully assessed the children, engaged in professional conversations with the class teachers and developed a 6 week intervention programme based on 2 hours intervention per week. Busy Brains professionalism, experience and passion for primary education shone through and the children they worked with very quickly became totally engaged with stimulating and relevant activities that were tailor made to the children’s needs. Their communication and delivery of feedback is particularly effective and as a result the children made outstanding progress. Progress reports and detailed analysis was provided to assist teachers in ascertaining next steps for the children once the intervention ended.– Alexander Banks - Headteacher - Wessex Gardens Primary School


The best decision we've made

I love that my daughter gets individualised lessons and can work at her own pace. She always finishes the lessons feeling happy.– Alison A
Our first session with Dawn was amazing! I instantly knew we had made the right decision. Dawn is friendly, patient & thoroughly engaging. My daughters always look forward to their next lesson. Learning is fun & positive with Busy Brains. Highly recommend!!!– Joanie G

A real boost for confidence!

Great personalised service

Paula and Dawn are fantastic at what they do. I’ve seen them both teach in their previous jobs and know how brilliant they are with instilling confidence in children. Millie was reluctant to have a tutor at first and lacked confidence so we persevered and she now loves her lessons with Busy Brains – Paula is patient and encouraging with her and organised about planning her progress. Millie’s confidence has come on really well in the short time she has been having lessons. I can thoroughly recommend Busy Brains if your child needs that extra support or confidence!– Louise M

Brilliant Tutors!

Excellent tutor

My son (yr 5) was very against having a tutor. As soon as he had his taster session with Paula he was happy! He always does the Busy Brains homework before anything else. He has been using elements of his learning within his school work. He even did some Maths for fun this week….a miracle!– Evelyn M
Paula makes learning fun and was a lifesaver during lockdown! She easily adapted from home visits to online to assist with our daughters learning. Paula engages with our daughter and uses games as well as formal learning combined so that it is fun to do. I send over the homework prepared by her School and Paula combines this with her own work. Highly recommended.– Sarah W
