Edvance Changed Our Lives

Don’t just take our word for it! This is what some of our past learners are saying about the programme.

  • I have gained immense confidence in my approach to mathematical problems in everyday life.
  • Logical reasoning has also helped me a lot as I find I can apply all the skills learned here in real time and in real life. As well as improving in all areas my confidence has grown in myself and at work. I feel better equipped to face the tasks at work and for the police tests.
  • I gained a lot of knowledge on things I thought I knew that I actually didn’t i.e. times tables, decimals to fractions, time calculation, synonyms, antonyms and spelling.
  • The programme improved my understanding of questions, faster calculation time and little tips to help with solving problems.
  • I now know easy, less complicated techniques to work out numerical problems.
  • I thought personally it was going to be like you were at school, but it wasn’t, which I was pleased about. I would recommend it to someone else that needs a bit of a boost.
  • Totally not what I expected. It is way more and an awesome course. I learnt so much.
  • I especially appreciated the tutor’s style of teaching in a way which makes it very easy for a stubborn adult like me to grasp.
