Our experience with Arlen has been outstanding. My year 10 daughter has had tutoring in several subjects, and all staff have been professional, extremely supportive and exceptionally knowledgeable. In fact she has asked to continue with the support in year 11 when she returns to school. It has made such a huge difference to her confidence and I cannot thank and recommend Arlen enough. More...

Arlen Education has helped my daughter enormously with her GCSE Maths course. Within just a few weeks of starting group tuition her overall confidence and belief in herself improved dramatically. We are delighted with the progress she has made over the past six months and feel investing in Arlen Education group lessons was hugely valuable for her future. More...

My daughter benefited tremendously from the Arlen face-to-face small group sessions when she joined in the autumn. The tutors were certainly specialist professionals. Sadly, with the cancellation of the summer examinations, my daughter did not have the opportunity to show her progress but Arlen continued to support with remote learning regarding pre-A-level preparation and possible GCSE 'resit' opportunities in the autumn. 'Hard' copy resources were sent promptly in the post in readiness for online sessions. Thank you - you were there when students were 'lost' after all their hard work preparing for the now cancelled summer GCSEs. More...

Kieron and the team have been professional from the minute I enrolled Evie for extra tuition. The sessions are structured and very informative which resulted in Evie gaining significant improvement in her English and Maths. In addition to this, once the announcements were made that the GCSE’s were cancelled this year, the team were exemplary with their support and mobilisation of an online tutoring platform, extensive support with regards to A level preparation. We can not recommend Arlen enough. More...

Kieron has been working with my son for a few years now. He’s not the easiest student but Kieron’s relaxed and understanding approach keeps him engaged and focused throughout his lessons. We can see steady progress and are very happy with the service Arlen provides. More...

A great format to teach supplementary lessons: a small group of students matched with a friendly and knowledgable teacher and individual attention. Highly recommended.

We have worked with an Arlen tutor for several years and it has been a breath of fresh air. This is a dedicated company who tutor out of passion for the profession. The results have been spectacular - over 90% in GCSE's which would have been unachievable in school.

We strongly recommend them.

My son was doing badly at school in Maths which reflected in his results and attitude. What a complete change in him after just one session which has boosted his confidence massively. Well worth the money and time invested each week, thank you Sheralynne! More...

Abi quickly established my son's ability and how she would help him within the group. He enjoyed working with Abi and found it very helpful to fill gaps in his knowledge.

The lessons work well with zoom, content is covered in a fluent manor as the teachers go into lots of detail as well as answering any questions during class. However I would like a little less work set as homework because It’s difficult to manage along with work from school. More...

My daughter had been having gcse maths tuition with Arlen up until the Covid -19 shutdowns . Arlen acted swiftly and without fuss and were able to move the sessions on-line . We were concerned how the group would work and my daughter was nervous before the first session , but we are thrilled with the progress so far . She’s enjoying the lessons and is getting on well with the homework set on-line which is tailored to her needs . Communication between pupils , parents and staff is excellent and I highly recommend Arlen . More...

Very accessible due to digital learning set up, enables me to do two GCSEs outside of school without clashing with schoolwork. Lessons are excellent and the environment is great. More...

Very helpful especially with school cancellations to help keep ticking over on old content and embed it whilst also learning new content. I feel this is going to give me a huge advantage over other students my age not gaining this very beneficial resource. Teachers couldn’t be more helpful, the only negative thing I could say is some times there are connection issues making the speech inaudible at points but mostly works fine. More...

I missed nearly a year of school near to my GCSEs due to a surgery, I was extremely behind on work and revision. I joined Arlen to try and catch upon what I missed, I was so grateful for the brilliant results which were due to taking part in their revision courses. I was being taught most of the work for the first time but this wasn't a problem, the teachers were very helpful covering what you specifically needed even in a group setting. I also made some good friends during my time there, it is a comfortable and friendly environment which produces fab results. I have carried on with revision for my A levels, and went from a U to a B in a year in chemistry. Arlen is the best investment you could make in your/your child's future. More...

My daughter has been attending Arlen since Easter for her GCSEs and I only wish we had found them sooner. She loves the sessions and seems to thrive on the small groups and the more detailed support she gets from her tutors, who have an informal and relaxed approach that puts her at ease and increases her confidence. I only wish Arlen could support her for all her GCSE subjects!
I'm sure her results will improve as a result of the sessions and look forward to August to see!

Would thoroughly recommend Arlen Education (and frequently do). My son felt that he had a few gaps in certain areas of mathematics pre GCSE. The tutors at Arlen were great at focusing on the areas he needed to cover and succeeded in giving him the knowledge and confidence to achieve his desired results in the exam. More...

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Arlen Education. My son was aware that there were a few areas in his maths GCSE preparation that he needed to work on and the team at Arlen were fantastic at focusing on these areas. He enjoyed the small group revision sessions and the boost in his confidence meant he was rewarded with a GCSE grade above his target. Thanks team Arlen. More...

Services

Arlen Education is proud of the exceptional quality of private tuition we offer to our clients. Our highly experienced group of tutors are able to cover all subjects across the Humanities and Sciences. We focus on creating an active learning environment for our students, whether they are working towards entrance / national examinations, or would benefit from one-to-one help in a tricky subject.

All of our tutors are not only experts in their subject field but in bringing out the best in their tutees. Our methodology focuses on providing a positive, constructive and enjoyable learning environment for every student. We take a bottom up approach to each subject to ensure that the basics are mastered before moving onto more complex material.

13+ / Common Entrance / Scholarship
We have extensive experience in tutoring younger students who are preparing to take their CE or Scholarship Exams to independent schools in the UK. Our students have gone on to win places at all their chosen schools including Eton, Harrow, St Paul's, Benenden, Cheltenham Ladies and Oundle.

GCSEs
Arlen Education is an expert provider of academic and revision support to students undertaking their GCSEs. Given the number of subjects studied, this can be a very pressured and stressful time for pupils, but Arlen provides a well structured and clear revision schedule, taught directly to the GCSE specification to maximise our pupils' results in the exams. Many of our tutors are examiners for the GCSE qualification, current or former teachers who are able to provide a clear insight into what the examiners require.

Our firm also produces comprehensive course and revision notes in a clear, concise and readily digestible format, these are either provided to our tutees free of charge or alternatively are available for purchase direct.

A-Level / University Entrance
We pride ourselves on supporting students as they complete secondary education in preparation for university. We offer bespoke tuition and revision support to provide as much assistance as required to our pupils in what is a very stressful time. We also offer UCAS application advice, personal statement reviews and Oxbridge interview practise.
