The Good Schools Guide review of Athena Tuition
Founding partners are Wesley Sanders and Nelson Lo, who met when they were at Exeter University. Wesley, who is education and marketing director, deals with all the back end business, while Nelson, who is client service director, is the main point of contact for clients and tutors, as well as taking responsibility for the company’s international clients, who mainly come from China, Hong Kong, US and continental Europe. Both of them tutor – Wesley in history and economics and Nelson in 11+.
Nelson and Wesley each work from their respective London homes and asked to meet us at a Kensington café – ‘a typical meeting point for clients and tutors,’ they explained. ‘Previously, we had an office in Chancery Lane, but we found it was a waste of time as clients usually like meeting at their home or out and about, and tutors prefer to communicate by phone or over a coffee. The office just felt like an extravagance, and took up valuable commuting time,’ explains Nelson, although the men were toying with the idea of taking an office, this time in Hampstead, as the business continues to grow.

The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants offer assessments in English, maths and in reasoning. Most schools assess these subjects when considering a child for a place. This is especially important for children coming from different countries with different educational systems. But there can be many reasons for checking a child's progress in these basic skills.

Perhaps you suspect your child has some learning difficulty and you would like advice on what you should do. Or perhaps it is becoming clear that your child's current school is not working for him or her, and you need help to find a mainstream school which has better SEN provision, or to find a special school which will best cater for your child's area of need. Our SEN consultancy team advises on both special schools, and the mainstream schools with good SEN support, from reception through to the specialist colleges for 19+.
Special Educational Needs Index
There are currently around 164 state funded grammar schools located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. There are a further 69 grammar schools in Northern Ireland, but none in Wales or Scotland. Almost half of these are in what are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston, with only a few grammar schools.

As proud parents, we all know our children are unique. They're smarter than anyone else's, funnier, certainly more attractive, better behaved and above all bursting with the kind of talent that would leave Daniel Radcliffe or Charlotte Church standing. And sometimes, just sometimes, parental pride is justified.
