I highly recommend this centre to anyone wanting to support their children to improve in these areas.

Been here since it opened. Love the teachers and the area. Highly recommend to all!

My daughter has been attending stagepro for nearly three years, at her previous drama school she had refused to try any form of dance, but within months of joining Stage pro was happily learning ballet, Jazz and Tap. Stagepro teachers have provided some amazing experiences for the kids, including performing at the Opera House Blackpool and London. She has improved so much and gained not only confidence but some really lovely friends along the way as well

Private Tutors

3Rs Tuition Limited

69 Sankey St, Warrington WA1, UK, UK – 01925 555567

Looking for a tutor is hard as there is so much choice. I called and emailed quite a few and to be honest, few of them inspired me. What stood out with 3Rs Tuition was that they offered proper plans for the tuition and then they updated them every six weeks. When you are stretching your family budget to provide the best for your kids, you need to know what you are paying for. The set up is usual having visited the national companies. Instead of the large rooms with loads of kids, they have small rooms for each tutor. I was also surprised to see whiteboards. Both my children have now been going to 3Rs since January and they love it. Simon is really good fun when he teaches and Andrew quietly helps the children relax and feel at home. If you are looking for a tutor, go visit the centres first and then and only then make your mind up.

I would like to thank Simon and everybody at 3Rs Tuition. My son was struggling with both maths and English. We tried a tutor at home and he hated it. We changed to 3Rs Tuition and suddenly he was keen to go every week. He liked the whole set up. Small classrooms meant that he felt he could ask questions without embarrassment. All we have to do now is wait until August for the results.

Kumon Maths & English

First Floor, 525 Liverpool Rd, Great Sankey, Warrington WA5 3LX, UK – 01925 723341

I take Immense pleasure in writing about the facilitator Jane Kerfoot who has been promoting maths and English to the younger generation promoting independent learning. Jane kerfoot and her team has built this institution with great dedication and efforts with the views of success and development of a child. The motivational,personalised attention and interest provided to the students has made our children achieve the accolades at way beyond the age appropriate. Jane kerfoot has always encouraged the kids to challenge themselves with minimal or no stress. Encouraging and appeasing the work has made our children more confident and portray the same at the school where their abilities are higher than expected. Evaluating the abilities of a child and exercising appropriate work load which has been the key motives of Jane and her team has caused less burden to the parents and the children. This has alleviated the anxieties to all those involved in demonstrating excellence and in maintaining learning.
