What parents say about our tutors

“When my daughter was in Year 10 she did a GCSE mock paper in her school and got a D grade. She then went to Vandana for Maths tutoring. She found her to be very patient and highly professional. Vandana always provided her with enough worksheets, past papers or on-line Maths resources to improve during the week. After tutoring with Vandana she achieved an A* grade in her GCSE Maths exam in Year 11. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.”

Mrs E Philpott - GCSE Exam

“I was very lucky to be introduced to Vandana, 3 months before my son’s Maths GCSE exam. His school had predicted him an E grade but I was convinced he could achieve higher. After just one session with Vandana it was clear that his confidence had improved immensely. Her cool, calm and nurturing approach was just what he needed at that point. He went on to get a C, 2 months later and we were all very happy. Brilliant tutoring and highly recommended!!”

Mrs M Walsh-Pammen

GCSE Tuition in Brentwood

“Vandana is an excellent Maths tutor who helped my son prepare for his successful 11+ exams. She is very polite, calm, friendly and used different mathematical techniques to clarify concepts. My son was really lucky to have Vandana as his Maths tutor who helped him to gain 1st choice of grammar school. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a Maths tutor for your child. She is very approachable and always willing to help, even with my son's homework if he is struggling. We can always count on her and she is also an excellent mentor.”

Mrs S Jain

“I am so grateful to Vandana for all the support and help she has given to my daughter Gracie to help her acheive top scores in 11 plus exam and the Chelmsford County High School exam.”

Mrs U Goreeba

“Vandana has assisted both of my children with their Maths. My daughter, with Vandana’s help and assistance, moved her expected grade from a D to a very strong B (2 marks away from an A). My son is taking his GCSE Maths this year and her help has made him a much more confident and natural mathematician. She is patient and understanding and is able to explain complex subject matter easily so that even those who are nervous of numbers can understand. A great teacher.”

Mr T Kemp

“I was extremely pleased to have Vandana tutor my two children at GCSE Maths and even went on to recommend her to my nieces, nephews and friends’ children too. She provided a very attentive and professional tutoring service to both of my children over a 3 year period. Her years of experience as a teacher and extreme patience really helped my children regain their confidence and self-esteem in learning Maths. This enabled them to pass their GCSE Maths with excellent grades.”

Mrs L McClenaghan

“Open Minds has been a great motivator to help my son get the push which we as a parents or the school as a whole couldn't give enough. I liked the way Mrs.Vandana Gupta - Director of Open Minds - said to my teenage son in very simple words "we don't believe in ok -perfection is the word.” Really grateful for all the support in Maths and English."

Mrs N Khemka
