“Intensive tuition, but effective!”

Written on: 15/04/2014 by Sparksup198 (1 review written)

KSOL provides thorough and effective teaching at the weekly sessions that really helped my child get to the root of any problems. The daily computer activities are particularly good as they are short, progress through levels and give instant feedback. My son also attended some exam training sessions which really helped him with timing and exam technique. The company is well run and the tutors have high expectations of the students. However, the course is intense and parents need to make time… Read Full Review

“Positive outcome”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by 445Parrish (1 review written)

KSOL enabled us to understand what was required of our daughter in order to be ready to do the 11+ exam. The mocks were really helpful to experience the large room full of students and the results allowed us to pinpoint target areas over the summer before the exam. We scored an AQS for our first choice grammar. Thrilled… Read Full Review

“A must have experience”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by Phillipszo442 (1 review written)

I truly recommend the program. I started when my son was in year 4. It was pretty easy at the beginning but then picked up quickly to much more tricky work. Maths, verbal and non-verbal were absolutely great. English comprehension was missing. Repetition was very useful. Mock exams were definitely useful for the children. However it was quite daunting that we, as parents, were not allowed to have the material, which was available with other mock exams with different business. The detailed… Read Full Review

“A little extra help, a lot of extra confidence”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Blake301 (1 review written)

I would definitely recommend KSOL, and would certainly use this service again for my younger children. My son found most of the online tests fairly easy, but they highlighted some areas of weakness, which could then be addressed. I feel that the most beneficial aspect was the mock exam, which allowed him to get used to the formal exam environment without any of the pressure. Would he have passed without KSOL - probably, but he went into the exam totally relaxed and feeing confident. Money… Read Full Review

“All the difference”

Written on: 07/03/2014

My daughter has just been offered her first preference grammar school, Kings Edwards V1 Camp Hill which is undoubtedly down to the difference made by the KSOL team. Although she was already bright and able, the programme focussed on her specific weak areas as well as invaluable exam techniques and tips. By the time she came to sit her 11+ she was fully prepared and pretty relaxed having done four previous mock exams. Despite the extra effort of attending on Saturday mornings as well as the… Read Full Review

“The Best”

Written on: 06/03/2014 by AEK1 (1 review written)

KSOL are the Market Leaders if you are serious about your child passing the 11 plus exam. KSOL helped my son passed all of the exams including KES and QMGS. He also got a place at Camp Hill, one of the toughest schools to get into in the Country. The Team are the best and I will be sending my second son there as well… Read Full Review

“Thank you KSOL Team !!”

Written on: 06/03/2014 by AlexisBird (1 review written)

I wish to thank the KSOL team for their fantastic approach to preparation for 11+ and also independant school entry. The method and structured approach which KSOL adopts with a targeted approach to address individual child's needs is excellent. I can attest to this because BOTH our twin children with quite different personalities were provided support which targeted their individual areas where they needed help and addressed them. Our children appreciated the environment and encouragement… Read Full Review

“Success achieved with KSOL”

Written on: 24/02/2013

Our son would not have achieved his place at KES Birmingham without KSOL - it is a simple as that! The daily on-line tests are backed up by superb tutoring on Saturdays (in Shirley), challenging the pupils to push their knowledge well beyond what they encounter at school. All the tutors genuinely care about the children, and hone in on areas each child needs to work on. The four mock exams were invaluable for our son in developing key exam and time-management techniques, so that when he came to… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Fantastic”

Written on: 27/04/2012 by Parveen1 (1 review written)

Having attempted some private tuition for my daughter, I felt that she was not being challenged and needed more fun, yet working hard at the same time. KSOL was mentioned to me and I started her on the intitial online package, which at first seemed easy, but what it is doing was building the foundation for your child to achieve whatever they wish. She then went on to the graduate package with the online tests and the visit to the centre every Saturday. The team here were great motivators and… Read Full Review

“Superb Education”

Written on: 16/03/2012

My daughter began the intensive KSOL course in 2011 and loved the challenge. My daughter found the staff wonderfully supportive and full of knowledge. She enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and classes she attended in Warwick. The team at KSOL are incredibly generous with their time and support both to the children and the parents equally. Great team. Parents pick up important tips and understand how best to help their children. We can't speak highly enough of KSOL and intend for our son to… Read Full Review

“best 11 plus tuition”

Written on: 07/03/2012 by pdhesi (1 review written)

My son started doing online tests in year 4 on the early bird programme. This got him into a good routine, and when he started year 5 , he was more than ready to start at the centre. The staff at the centre have an excellent rapport with the children and my son was always eager to attend. The mock exams are an essential tool to enable the children to get used to an exam environment, which can sometimes be quite daunting.I cannot recommend the staff, and the KSOL programme enough.My son got into… Read Full Review

“We enjoyed the KSOL programme and achieved success”

Written on: 02/03/2012 by Rajrakhi (1 review written)

Another success under your watch. My son has been offered a place at Queen Mary’s Grammar School, his first choice. The KSOL programme has been wonderful in supporting both my son and I through 11+ preparation. The daily routine of online testing/reviewing answers, weekly feedback an encouragements plus the mock tests all enhanced my sons chances of success and played to his preferred learning style. I hope all you receive similar feedback from all your students, because your services… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/03/2012 by jassansi (1 review written)

My daughter enrolled on the year 5 online training and weekly tuition. It was a big commitment for a 9 year old but one she embraced with enthusiasm and energy. The teaching was friendly, focused and sympathetic to the needs of our child and this allowed her to learn at a steady pace building on the skills she learned in school. The tuition although aimed at progress in the 11+ gave her greater confidence in her school work which also benefited. I met the KSOL team via the Institute of… Read Full Review

KSOL has been a great help for me,it helped me get through my 11+ which now means i will be attending Queen Mary's Grammer school for boys.
Not only do you learn many things at KSOL you also have alot of fun and you can feel perfectly confortable asking whatever question on whatever subject you need help on.
The tutors are briliant- they are very patient,supportive and they are amazing teachers.
You sometimes get given targets to help you acheive your absoloute best.

The KSOL programme has been an invaluable experience for our Son, as well as ourselves. Just like many parents we were entering the world of the unknown, in preparing our son for the 11 plus exams for the first time. We are very fortunate to have discovered the KSOL programme, as our Son has not only developed academically, but also grown in confidence and this is all thanks to the team at KSOL, who provide a very warm and friendly atmosphere which promotes the best from each child.

Written on: 18/03/2011 by Sembian (1 review written)

The 11+ results have just been out for my son. We are based in London. We didn't put him through any tutoring and we were dependent on the daily online tests from KSOL. He found the online tests extremely helpful especially while tackling the tests for the North London Consortium schools. We've found them to be extremely professional and prompt in responses (including the final gift). The four exams he did at Birmingham, in a real exam environment, served as more than mock tests allowing him to… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/03/2011

KSOL was the difference between my son getting into a King Edwards grammar school and not. KSOL taught not only the techniques required to pass the exams, but also it gave my son the confidence he needed. Lead by Anita and Aron, the team focuses on each child. The team are great at motivating the children, always giving positive feedback. My son would come from school and couldn't wait to do the online work (it didn't feel like homework). The whole package offered by KSOL: Online work… Read Full Review
