The Good Schools Guide review of UK Study Centre

‘Our tuition service grew out of our school placement service, which has been the main area of our work since our inception in 2006,’ says founder Elena Adamova, who adds that they also offer a guardianship service. In fact, it was because the tuition side took off that her co-founder Alex Nanian switched his role from part-time to full-time seven years later - and they still own and run the business together. Elena has a degree in journalism and marketing, together with experience in PR, while Alex – who has a BA in Economics and an MBA from the USA, as well as teaching experience in both marketing and economics – has worked in both business development and educational publishing. The staff members include English, Chinese and Russian speaking account managers all of whom studied in the UK and have extensive knowledge and experience working in educational sector. They look after the company’s main international markets as well as UK based clients.

And sometimes, just sometimes, parental pride is justified.

      There are currently around 163 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.
