My son has joined the Progress Academy just a year before his 11 plus exams. Initially, we were not sure how an Online tuition would suit him and get through his exams. But Progress Academy's coaching and commitment towards their students are tremendous. Every child gets individual attention and care. My son felt the class very interesting and engaging. As a parent, we saw the improvement in him and gained confidence. As a result, my son has cleared his 11 plus with flying marks.
