Parent Testimonial: FEEDBACK

Jovana, Jan. 11, 2019

I think that the feedback we received was brilliant because it gave you an idea of which areas he was struggling with and pointed out specifically what he needed to work on. It helped Kabir and me, because we were working together as a team - the tutor, the parent and the child. I think that is the best bit and they couldn't have done it better.

Testimonial: Trefoil Tutors

Jovana, Dec. 22, 2018

We’ve had a great experience with Trefoil Tutors for our sons. They’ve built up a good understanding of mathematical concepts and as a result I believe they’ve improved a great deal in school, but most importantly they’ve been happy going to lessons and have comfortably managed school work and assignments set by Trefoil Tutors, so it’s been a win-win for them in every respect.
