Testimonials 1

I can’t thank you all enough for all your hard work with my son. I must thank you for both tutors who have been amazing with him, I can’t thank you enough. After Christmas I will get in touch with you for my other son for a maths tuition. Thank you once again for all your help. Mrs. E. of Highcliffe. June 2019.

It was a tough brief we set Domus; to find A Level tutors for Politics, History and Business Studies.The tutors you found for us…have made a life changing difference to our son’s life both in terms of acquisition of knowledge and personal development. This wasn’t luck – I thought Domus very determined, professional and exacting in their search for tutors to fulfill our needs and you came up with the goods. So thank you very much for that. Mr. T. of Parkstone. June 2019

Our daughter really flourished under our Domus tutor’s tutelage, we deliberately avoid citing ‘tuition’ as it always felt they worked through things in a mutual way, enjoying the process of learning together.  In our opinion, the best teachers are those who share something of themselves and our tutor was always open and engaging.  It’s rare to find teachers who actually teach by example. It’s been a delight to have found an inspirational teacher with a genuine passion for their subject who can engage with a pupil, instil confidence in their abilities and make it all a positive and fun experience. Our daughter always came away from lessons, even tough ones, bolstered and smiling. It was also always referred to as a joint effort. If it was a tricky topic, the tutor always described getting to the finishing line in joint terms. She felt very supported. Mr. & Mrs. S of Tuckton June 2019

The tutor you sent to us is such an inspiring character and our son has loved his help and guidance. We will miss the tutor in our household. Mr. T. of W. Southbourne. May 2019.

We are delighted with the progress made over the last three years.  The support our daughter has received from both tutors assigned to her during this time has been outstanding.  She never once complained about having a lesson and I believe the reason for this was due to the tutors’ gentle and encouraging approach with our daughter which gave her confidence week after week. Mrs. B. of Christchurch. May 2019

We first started with our Domus tutor to support our eldest to support his school work during a time when there seemed to be no consistency of class teacher in Year Three. Our son made such good progress that it was identified that he had the potential to take the 11 plus and so his tutor work evolved into preparing for that. As a result of this and his hard work, he comfortably passed the Grammar School entrance exam. Our younger son, who is coincidentally in Year 3 now, has been motivated by this and wants to follow his brother to Grammar so the week after the 11 plus, he inherited the Monday night slot with our tutor and we are already seeing significant improvements in his all-round school work’. Without the effort and support of our tutor I don’t think either of our boys would be doing so well. Many thanks. Mr. L. of Bournemouth.December 2018

We used Domus Tutoring for our son to help him with some exams. He was struggling with comprehension and English. The tutor we had was excellent. Very approachable and friendly but he was also firm and set clear targets. He was very good at breaking down difficult concepts in comprehension and maths and explaining it in a way that my son could grasp. Our son’s English and general approach to his school work improved dramatically and exceeded our expectations. He achieved top scores in his exams and we are very pleased. Thank you. Mrs. W. of Ringwood. December 2018

It has been very convenient to have a tutor come to our home and our tutor has been excellent and most helpful to our son. I believe our son is prepared as best as can be for the 11+. Thank you for the good luck card, he liked that. Will let you know the result when we get the notification. Our tutor has been great and our son enjoyed learning with her. We look forward to her assessing our daughter in October. Many thanks for everything you have done. We are very happy to praise “Domus Tutoring”. Thank you also to the good Proprietor with many helpful and informative emails. Thank you so much. Mrs. D. of Bournemouth September 2018 

I contacted Domus Tutoring as I was concerned my daughter, who was in year 9, was starting to struggle with mathematics at school. Domus asked me many pertinent questions to better understand her requirements. Domus provided me with a very professional and highly competent tutor who quickly established a rapport with my daughter. The tutor was careful to establish with both me and my daughter what it was that we wanted – did we want homework or was that too much on top of her current homework commitments? Our tutor  – and it did feel as if she was very much there for both of us – also went through my daughter’s school book on each visit to see what she was doing in the class room. Maths homework set by the school was discussed and if help was needed it was given. Any mocks undertaken were looked at and areas identified that needed strengthening. Periodically my daughter was tested on work done weeks later to ensure she had retained that knowledge. At the end of every lesson the tutor would give me a de-brief on the lesson and how my daughter was doing, and she was always honest with both of us. It is fair to say my daughter does not enjoy maths, but I could hear my shy daughter talking and laughing with her tutor which was lovely. As my daughter progressed through senior school some of her maths teachers were less than ideal. There were changes of staff and my daughter would have to establish a relationship with each of them. The constant was her maths tutor via Domus. We are now awaiting her GCSE results, but I know I have done all I can to support my daughter thanks to Domus. I know that they gave her the best opportunity to pass this exam & I know, without them, the chances of her passing, or even passing well, would have been vastly reduced. I have recommended Domus to various friends over the years who have used them for a variety of subjects and for differing age ranges. All have been very happy with the service they have received & all have noticed an improvement in their child’s work. I recommend you to try them and judge for yourself. Ms. L. of Iford. August 2018

Thank you so much for finding two tutors for my A Level retakes, it helped me massively to understand the subjects in a way I couldn’t before.  So incredibly helpful and kind, would 100% recommend. Miss. T. of Barton August 2018

I would happily recommend Domus Tutoring. I have used them a number of times for both of my children in both primary and secondary schools, always with a positive outcome. Mrs. B. of Christchurch. August 2018

 Since being tutored for English and Maths I have seen improvements in all aspects of my work and these skills have also been carried onto other subjects. I am still awaiting my GCSE results but regardless I’d like to say that I have enjoyed my 5 years of tuition from Domus. Many thanks. Mr. L. of Highcliffe August 2018

We have been very pleased and satisfied with the progress our son has made since he started tuition you have provided. He is now working at his age level in both Maths and English which is super! He has benefited greatly from the one to one sessions. His confidence has increased and he is enjoying learning. If he requires extra assistance in the future we will be touch. Thank you for all your assistance. Mrs. H. of  Christchurch. August 2018

Thank you for the good luck card. I hope all has gone well for my son, we will find out in August! I am very pleased with the standard of teaching provided by the tutors arranged by Domus. My son’s needs in 2 different subjects were different but the tutors were able to adapt to give him what he needed. I found both friendly, approachable and very flexible. Both went out of their way to provide additional materials and resources and my son’s knowledge gaps were capably addressed. I believe he went into his GCSEs far better prepared than would have been the case and with regards to Spanish hopefully looking at a good pass rather than a straight pass.  Kind Regards Mr. Q. of Queen’s Park. July 2018

Our tutor has been absolutely outstanding and our son has really enjoyed having him. Our son is now doing really well and I no longer feel he needs the tuition. Many thanks. Mrs. D. of Somerford. June 2018

I feel that my son has come on in leaps and bounds since being tutored by his Domus tutor and now I’d like to see how he gets on once at secondary school. I will definitely be in touch with you if I feel the boys are ever in need of extra tuition again. Many thanks and best wishes. Mrs. D. of Bournemouth. June 2018

Thank you so much, to all at Domus Tutoring, you’ve been a great help. Amazing service from Domus Tutoring who were also able to magic up tutors at short notice, which for our daughter really helped settle nerves during a difficult period running up to exams. Excellent and reliable tutors both long and short term for us. Highly recommend. Mrs. S. of Ringwood. June 2018

I would like to thank you for finding a tutor for my daughter.  The tutor has been helping her with the complexities of Year 5/6 English and maths for approximately 2 years and we are both very happy with the progress she has made, in terms of both ability and confidence.  The tutoring was targeted around the  11+ exam, but then we continued until the SATS. I would like to express our thanks for arranging such a suitable tutor for my daughter – her natural, kind way of teaching suited us and the knowledgeshe has is exceptional.  We will miss her weekly visits as she quickly became a member of our little family.  I would highly recommend Domus Tutoring and our tutor. Miss. T. of Southbourne. May 2018

I would like to take the opportunity, despite the outcome of the GCSE results, to let you know how happy I have been with both of my son’s tutors. He has never grumbled over seeing them which I think speaks volumes and also considering how long he has been seeing his maths tutor. They are both exceptional tutors who I would, and have, highly recommend with their vast amount of experience and adaptability. They have been a pleasure to have in my home. The maths tutor is kind and her willingness for my son to do well is on a par with how I feel. Equally with the English tutor who has gone above and beyond any of my expectations. My son’s words to describe them are kind, helpful and positive. Thank you so much, fingers crossed for good results and thank you kindly for the good luck card. Mrs. DS of Highcliffe. May 2018
Thank you. My daughter has been very happy and loves her teacher; she’s going to miss her when her tuition lessons finish!!  Many thanks. Miss. S. of Springbourne. May 2018
We want to thank you for our tutor, she has been brilliant and helped our daughter so much. Thank you. Mrs. M. of Littledown. April 2018
We are more than happy for our words to be put on the Domus Tutoring website as we were very pleased with the work our tutor did with our daughter, thank you. We found her to be a fantastic tutor and she has really helped our daughter improve on her school work so thank you for that. Mrs. B. of Highcliffe April 2018

My daughter’s science tutor has been amazing! Their final session will be 31st May 2018. I will contact you again in the autumn when I know where my daughter is going for 6th form as she may want an ‘A Level’ English Literature tutor to give her a bit of confidence. Also, if she doesn’t pass her GCSE maths I will need a tutor. Should this happen, we would like our last tutor to help her again as we understand that he does also teach maths. Many thanks for all your help as always…I’ll let you know how my daughter does in her science exams. Mrs. A. of Highcliffe. April 2018

It was a pleasure to see how well my son responded to the excellent tutoring he received. He clearly enjoyed his sessions, quickly developing a rapport with his tutor and engaging very well for the whole hour. We would be happy to recommend Domus tutors. Ms. B of Pokesdown. April 2018

We have been very pleased with the work the tutor did with our daughter, thank you. We have found our tutor to be a fantastic tutor and she has really helped our daughter improve on her school work and we are pleased with the progress. Thank you. Mrs. B. of Highcliffe. February 2018

For the time being we’d like to give our son a break from tutoring whilst he settles into senior school and all the after school activities he’s signed up to plus the daily homework! If he requires support in the future we would definitely like to continue with the same tutor who has been an excellent influence keeping our son motivated during each lesson which resulted in good SATs results.  We’re extremely grateful for her patience and support over the last couple of years. Many thanks. Mrs. H. of Iford. October 2017

We have recently had a parents evening and I’m very pleased to report the teacher has been very impressed with my son, his learning and the levels he is attaining. With this in mind, we have decided to stop his tutoring at Christmas. We have been very impressed with the tutor. She has instilled a confidence into my son with his English – his keenness to learn, read and write has been as a direct result of our tutor.  If we were to feel he required any further assistance with any aspect of his work, we wouldn’t hesitate in requesting tuition and the same tutor again. Mrs. M. of Mudeford. October 2017

I cannot praise our tutor and her ability to help my son enough.  She has done the most amazing job getting him through Year 6 and passing all his SATs!  Now our son is in secondary school he is doing well and after a discussion with our tutor she feels that she no longer needs to help him. If we require further help with his secondary education I will definitely come back to Domus Tutoring. We will of course continue to have the same tutor for our younger son on a weekly basis. I have nothing but praise for our tutor. Mrs. D. of Littledown. October 2017

My son enjoyed his tuition lessons. The tutor had an amazing manner about him and was very patient with my son; the tutor made sure he really understood what he was learning. The tuition my son received from the tutor was amazing and has helped my son considerably. Ms. S. of Christchurch. September 2017

I can’t thank Domus Tutoring enough for supplying such an excellent English tutor for my son who has just finished his GCSEs 2017.My son’s tutor was not only professional, caring and always happy, he was extremely supportive and a very enthusiastic tutor.Through having one to one tutoring, my son went on to achieve all expectations in his English Language and English Literature GCSEs. I definitely recommend having a tutor as my son’s tutor taught him to be ‘The best that he can be.’ Mrs. H. of Southbourne September 2017

My daughter has always really enjoyed school and excelled in English however really started to struggle with Maths when they heightened the expectations  of the children last year.  We experienced periods of tears when she realised that she could not independently complete her homework and would not accept help from us which would often lead to unnecessary stress at the weekends. We decided to seek the assistance of a tutor once a week during year 6 to prepare her for her SAT’s.  We are pleased to say that she really enjoyed her lessons and if she did find a particular piece of homework challenging then it became the focus of the next tutor lesson.  Her recent school report stated ” that there had been a huge increase in her confidence over the past year and shown real determination to grasp new concepts.  She made steady progress and should feel really proud of what she has achieved.   She has worked exceptionally hard to improve her quick mental calculations with some pleasing results, sometimes surprising herself!”. I know that at school they were always pushing forward onto a new topic and my daughter fell behind and didn’t know how to catch up.  I really feel that she has a good basic grounding in Maths now and no longer fears the subject.  I would not hesitate to recommend Domus Tutoring service and would certainly consider again in the future if needed. Many thanks and best wishes. Mrs. L. of Christchurch. July 2017

Original testimonial is on the testimonials page 3 and dated October 2013. My reason for writing is to give you a copy of our son’s final Year 6 report and his SATS scoring which I think you will be very pleased with.  We still have enormous gratitude to you and hold you very highly in our hearts for all your help and support you gave to our son – we really will be eternally grateful. If ever you are passing you are more than welcome to pop in for a coffee and a catch-up – our home is always open to you. Thank you.Mrs. L. of Walkford. July 2017

Our daughter enjoyed being taught by her tutor which obviously made her more enthusiastic. I have been delighted with the tutor and her teaching methods and how well our daughter has developed and enjoyed her time learning with her. She was very thorough and gave our daughter a mixture of learning tools and tasks. Her tuition was fantastic, she was more than prepared for each lesson, her creativity and format to learn from was superb. She was organised, early to each lesson and used the Greek mythology theme very effectively within the learning. It was great that our daughter had such a good relationship with her, which in turn helped her develop further, particularly in maths. The Domus proprietor has also been a great support from the start and put my mind at ease, entering into something I felt was fairly daunting. So I’m very grateful to you both. Thank you for being so very good at what you do! Mrs. W. of Ringwood. July 2017

I would like to thank you for finding a tutor for my daughter. The tutor has been helping her with her Maths since last November and we are thrilled with the progress she has made, in terms of both ability and confidence. We would like to express our gratitude for all the hard work our tutor has put in over the last few months and we wish you both all the very best.  We will be recommending Domus Tutoring to anyone we know who is looking for a tutor. Mr. & Mrs. L. of Pokesdown. July 2017

We have had very thorough and flexible tuition, care and advice from everyone at Domus with both our children. The teaching has always accounted for different learning styles. The tutor is positive and approachable, we will miss her. She and the proprietor have been a huge support and we appreciate the care they have shown our children and their tremendous experience in their field. Mrs. W. of West Southbourne. July 2017

The service we received from Domus Tutoring was excellent.  Organised brilliantly by the proprietor.  We have used the same tutor for both our daughters (two years apart) to help them through their GCSEs.  One hour a week of one to one tuition, made a real difference. The tutor tailored every session to their needs, helping them both cope with the more difficult aspects of the curriculum.  It has proved to be a real benefit to both our daughters. Thank you to Domus Tutoring and our tutor! Mr. & Mrs. D. of Highcliffe. June 2017

I was recommended Domus Tutoring by a friend of mine. Following a detailed conversation with the proprietor, I felt confident that she understood what was needed, and therefore sourced the right tutor for my daughter who is studying for A levels. Having never used a tutor before, I was not aware initially how important it is to get the right tutor for my daughter’s personality and learning style. This has been a key component to the success of the tutoring, and so I am very grateful to the proprietor for taking the time initially to really understand what was required. I have found the whole process and relationship with Domus Tutoring and also our tutor to be highly professional, easy and friendly. There has been a reassuring attention to detail regarding expectations, safeguarding and communication. Our tutor has been an excellent choice. He has had a strong and positive influence on my daughter. His academic and teaching credentials are exemplary, and also I have found that he really understood what made my daughter “tick” quite early on, and so was able to tailor his approach to her. She quickly developed a trusting and warm relationship with him and has grown in confidence as a result. I genuinely believe that he has made a significant difference to her learning this year. As a parent I couldn’t be happier with the whole process. I would certainly fully recommend both our tutor and Domus Tutoring. Mrs. S. of Lower Parkstone. June 2017

 Firstly, can I just say what a great experience it has been for both boys to have your tutors for their exam preparations. Our GCSE tutor, has really made a difference in our eldest son’s progress and he actually feels, for the first time, like he will be able to manage the exams. Both of our younger son’s tutors have also shown great patience and support too and we are delighted with his successful Common Entrance results. So thank you. Mrs. C. of Poole. June 2017

After about 5 years and one term, our daughter had her last lesson with our tutor  two days ago and her SATs start tomorrow. The progress that she has made in that time is phenomenal. She started by being barely able to write the first line of any literacy exercise and now can work independently on her own to a good standard. Her maths has always been stronger than her literacy but she has continued to improve in this area and made great progress as well. Not only has the standard of her work improved, but her attitude to work is now more positive. This has been demonstrated by her spending a lot time recently doing SATs practice papers and revision sheets on her own initiative without us needing to prompt her. Overall we are delighted with the results of the tutor’s hard work and also we would like to thank you for sending her to us. We feel quite sad as our tutor has become a regular fixture at our house and we will miss her weekly visits. Finally thank you for the card that you sent to our daughter and the kind and encouraging words that it contained. She was particularly pleased to pick out that the bear on the card had written her name on the letter that it was writing. If we have any future tutoring requirements we will be in contact. Best wishes.Mr. & Mrs. A. of Christchurch. May 2017                                                      

 

I am very pleased with the progress my son has made with our tutor. He liked her, has enjoyed working with her and I was pleased that he engaged well with her. Many thanks. Mrs. P. of Bournemouth. May 2017

Our daughter really enjoyed her lessons with the tutor, a lovely lady, kind, attentive and patient  a great teacher. We wouldn’t hesitate to ask for her again should the opportunity arise to re-initiate Latin tutoring in the future. Once again thank you for your support. Mr. & Mrs. S. and daughter of Ringwood March 2017

I was really pleased with the way the tutor got to know my son and used his interests to inspire his learning. I’ve seen my son’s confidence really grow. Many thanks again for everything. Miss. M. of Hengistbury Head. March 2017

 Thank you once again on sending us another lovely tutor, I will not hesitate in recommending your services to others. Mrs. P. of Iford, February 2017

 We will miss our tutor. We have had a fantastically positive parents evening report mainly due to his hard work. We have been extremely happy with the excellent level of tutoring which our son has received over the past 10 months or so. We will certainly be back in touch if he feels he needs guidance once again. Many thanks indeed. Mrs. S. of Southbourne, February 2017

 Our Domus tutor was a fantastic tutor to our son. He built a great level of rapport which meant he gained his respect and trust. This enabled him to grasp our son’s attention so he enjoyed the work and even said he found it fun!! Thank you for your support in preparing our son for the 11+. Ms. O’B of Christchurch, October 2016

My daughter decided she wanted to sit the 11+ six months before the exams were being held. After a while of helping her myself, I decided to enlist the help of a Domus tutor. I am really glad I did as her tutor’s experience of what to expect and help with exam technique was really invaluable. She was also very positive and gave my daughter confidence, which I am sure helped her to gain the good pass she did .I was also impressed with the follow up offered from the owner of Domus Tutoring after the 11+ results came out.  I was given excellent advice on my daughter’s pass mark and whether she was in a strong position to put the grammar school as her first choice. Many thanks from us both for the tutoring and advice. Will let you know in March how my daughter got on. Mrs. L-C. of Christchurch, October 2016

We were recommended Domus Tutoring by a friend. We initially wanted a tutor as we felt that our child was being over looked at school and not reaching his full potential.   After discussing our concerns with Domus we decided to opt for a tutor who would help our son pass the local 11+ exam.  The tutor who was recommended matched our son’s needs perfectly. She understood his learning style and worked on his weaknesses where he lacked confidence. Over the 2 years she visited us, she felt part of the family and brought the best out in our son. Homework was never a chore and in fact enjoyed. Needless to say he passed the test with flying colours and did extremely well in his SATs as well. We miss her weekly visits. Mrs. L. of Christchurch, September 2016

I am extremely happy with the service received and very impressed with my tutor. I felt the ‘A Level’ exams were very challenging but I did well at them so I am hoping for the best in August. When I find out my results, I will email you to let you know! Desperate to find out now! Mr. M. of Littledown. July 2016

We are very grateful to our tutor for all his help and hard work as our daughter has certainly improved in her English over the last year or so. Mr. & Mrs. A. Christchurch, July 2016

Thank you so much for the genuine care and support we have received from Domus. We initially sourced a Maths tutor through Domus for our eldest son in his GCSE year as his confidence had taken a nose dive. We were so impressed with her that we then decided to combine her visit each week to also tutor our youngest son. I cannot fault her professionalism and enthusiasm with both children. Through her calm and caring approach, combined with faultless subject knowledge, she has greatly boosted their confidence and self belief which in turn has helped improve their grades. My eldest awaits his GCSE results and we are continuing with the same tutor going forward for my youngest son. I would not hesitate in recommending Domus to anyone requiring a tutor. The Proprietor goes out of her way to listen to individual requirements to ensure she proposes the best tutor to suit your needs. She even sent my son a hand written good luck card at the start of his GCSE’s which shows what a truly caring company Domus is. Mrs H. Barton on sea, July 2016

We were more than impressed by the level of professionalism and enthusiasm that the Domus tutor shared with our daughter.  The one to one sessions in English and maths really boosted her confidence levels and her self-esteem.  It was remarkable to see our daughter’s progress improve and we look forward to receiving her KS2 SAT’s results.  Many thanks to our wonderful tutor.  Mr & Mrs W. Christchurch, June 2016

Thank you so much for the tutoring that our son received from your maths tutor. She was absolutely brilliant and instantly clicked and understood our son. Her patience meant that she managed to get him to focus, read the question slowly and carefully and instantly improve his scores. These skills transferred to all subjects and fingers crossed he should be rewarded with some good SATs results. We have been impressed and may get in touch with you next year for a little help with our daughter who will be in Year 9 – thinking about getting her prepared for ks4.  It is certainly something we will keep in mind as she progresses towards KS4. Many thanks. Mrs. E. of Highcliffe, June 2016

Our son feels that he did really well in his SATs and even declared some of them to be ‘easy’! Thank you for the good luck card, he appreciated it. We will desperately miss our tutor. She has made such a positive influence in our son’s learning and he really looks forward to her coming. Had he not been moving to a private school we would have kept her on. He will be upset to lose her as will we. I definitely think that his confidence in himself is from the tutor’s positivity. I’m not sure when the SATs results are released but  as soon as I receive them I’ll let you know. Thank you. Mrs. M. of Queen’s Park, Bournemouth, June 2016
