The Good Schools Guide review of Exceptional Academics

Exceptional Academics staff

Rarely do the owners’ names pop up so frequently in our survey responses – testament to the very personal way in which this outfit is run by Dara Hanley and Matthew Chan. ‘Great company, great people – Dara and Matthew are professional, highly skilled and knowledgeable in their disciplines.’ ‘Dara and Matthew are very good at what they do – and so friendly too.’ ‘Dara runs this agency to an exemplary standard.’ Etc. And with both clocking up a huge number of tutoring hours themselves (Dara tutors six days a week; Matthew five), you might even get lucky and wind up with one of them (unlikely, though, given the waiting lists).
