The Good Schools Guide review of Bright Heart Education
Launched in 2018, this company is run by a three-man band: Dr Ryan Stevenson, Simon McQueen and John Salmon – all thoroughly dedicated to whole-person tutoring rather than pushing youngsters through entrance exams.
Originally the brainchild of Ryan (BSc in politics and international relations from LSE; BSc and PhD in chemical engineering from University of Cape Town), who built up a name for himself around SEN while working for other tutor agencies. ‘I could see what was missing in standard approaches and how a more holistic form of tuition was needed.’ It helped that he was also working as a therapist for a charity at the time – ‘The active listening in particular formed a backdrop to my approach.’
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.
