What People Say

What real people say about Bright Light Tuition


"In such a short time, I have learned so much about comprehension. I’ve always found language analysis hard but now it seems as easy as kicking a football."


"Charlotte is an amazing tutor who made a remarkable difference in Tireni's English comprehension and writing skills. My daughter started with Charlotte in September 2016, just before her 11+ exams in January 2017. Within 5 months, my daughter grew in confidence and her concentration improved dramatically. Charlotte was patient in explaining and teaching my daughter and at the end of each lesson I got an email from her updating me about how the lesson went and areas where Tireni needs to improve. Charlotte also ran Workshops for the 11+ which were amazing and Tireni gained a lot from the whole process. Also with Charlotte's help Tireni got offers from six independent schools and now she will be attending Putney High in September 2017. Due to my experience with Charlotte tutoring Tireni I have enrolled my younger with her. I just want say thank you so much for your effort and you definitely made a huge difference with my daughter Tireni."


"We are very grateful to have been introduced to Mrs. Okumura with regards to tutoring our daughter for the 11+ exams. My daughter's understanding of Maths has increased significantly and rapidly. Danielle is an excellent tutor, very patient, professional and firm. As a result of this, her confidence has increased phenomenally and she was able to pass her exams with very high marks to top independent schools from Ealing and beyond. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mrs. Okumura's services to anyone looking for a very friendly, professional and caring tutor. Thank you again for everything!"


"I would really recommend Bright Light Tuition. The teachers are so helpful and kind. I have learned a lot of new things."


"The Interview Practice Workshop was amazing. We learned so much about how to behave and how to deal with unexpected questions. It was wonderful!"


"The Creative Writing Workshop was a brilliant day. It was really fun because we learned a lot of writers' tricks. We also did a writing test and a continuation which you would get in an exam. This workshop is amazing and so are Danielle and Charlotte."
