    Our Purpose

    Dedicated to providing only excellence in education. At Learning Better,  we achieve outstanding results.

      Just before my Higher prelim, I was sure my results weren't going to improve. But, after having Chris tutor me, I was able to improve significantly from a just a borderline pass in my prelim to an A in my final higher English exam. Highly recommend him and I'm very grateful for his help

      Miguel D

      Chris has been tutoring our son in English and maths for several months now and his confidence and understanding of both subjects has grown so much during this time, helping him achieve much better scores.

      Chris has made the lessons interesting and fun for our son and given him so many tips on how to plan and organise his learning experience. Thanks Chris.
