The Good Schools Guide review of Exceptional Academics

Owners Dara Hanley and Matthew Chan take centre stage, despite being based in Dublin and Hong Kong respectively. Both still tutor as well as overseeing assessments, recruitment of tutors and matching them with clients. They are singled out for their integrity: ‘I was impressed that they immediately discounted the fee when the pandemic hit and tutoring went online.’ ‘As the entrance exams got closer, I thought maybe twice weekly tutoring would be better but they said that would be too much – they didn’t just go for the money.’ Always on hand, we also heard – ‘I have asked Matthew some technical questions during lessons and he’s never too busy to help with low level issues like that,’ remarked a tutor. They are supported by office manager, Laura Hughes.
