We were initially unsure about the session being completed over Skype but it proved to be just as efficient and somewhat less intrusive. It also meant that the session was much more affordable!

The tutor was much more accessible as there wasn't much of an age difference. This more sociable relationship diffused any nerves that my son initially had and they were able to get straight in to the session.

Dorkaid definitely offered my child something different. We have used private tutors before but we found this different style of service very refreshing as they highlighted areas which are not necessarily considered by the generic tutor.
Sarah, Mum of 14 year old Boy , Bristol.
Dorkaid is a very innovative solution for tutoring.
For the child, it's a real collaboration to be working with a tutor who they see as a peer.
It takes away the pressure and allows the child to learn more freely and relaxed.
Dorkaid provides a much needed service that parents would welcome.
Father of 12 year old boy, Exeter.
Thank you for putting us in contact with Will's PE tutor. Her perfectionism helped him achieve his 'A; pass. She continuously asked him to redo questions, even when Will thought he had provided a good answer. She told him exactly what the examiners were looking for and told him to reword his answers. She had an excellent understanding of what was required in the paper and of the subject itself.
My tutor was really helpful as they introduced me to some really helpful exam and revision techniques. I found the process much less stressful knowing that I was approaching everything in the correct way.

My tutor taught me that I didn't need to just learn the content, but I needed to make sure that my exam and revision skills were worked on too. It made the whole process much more manageable

It was great to be able to work with someone my own age, who had recently completed and succeeded in the exams themselves.
Zarin, 15 year old Student, Nottingham
I wanted to thank you personally for the help you gave me, as I feel the past paper practices we did made a real impact on my results. I went from predicted B and C grades to A and A*s in humanities, and I doubt that it would've happened without your help. Also, thanks for your help with sciences where I got A*s except for the A in Physics.
Thomas, 16 year old Student
Dorkaid is great for me as I am able to make some money whilst studying by sharing my own previous experience with younger students. It is really difficult to find the time to work whilst studying at University but being able to complete the sessions via Skype certainly game me much more flexibility and opportunity. Many of my friends also work for Dorkaid.
