YOU SAY...





They helped my teachers understand...

My LUDOWIDE mentor helped my mum and me to explain my difficulties to the school. The teachers became more understanding, such as not being as strict if I forgot to do/ bring in my homework, and helped to reduce the number of things I had to remember. They also helped me to manage difficult or stressful environments at school, like having my own room for exams.

LUDOWIDE FILLS a VITAL GAP...

LUDOWIDE fills a vital gap in the support of children’s learning and wellbeing. By addressing every aspect of a young person’s life – not just their academic progress or their emotional life in isolation – LUDOWIDE mentors and tutors genuinely inspire and empower. They seem to find the key to a child’s self-belief, and we have seen pupils taking astonishing steps in confidence and success. The fact that they take the family with them on this journey means   that, in time, the young person is able to walk independently rather than relying on external support. The only tutors and mentors who aim to work themselves out of a job!

The service went above and beyond...

LUDOWIDE has been amazing for my two sons. The service went above and beyond. The tutor was more than just an academic teacher, providing me with very personalised and thoughtful feedback and advice not only on their English level but also on their well-being.

confidence has grown...

Our daughter is coming on in leaps and bounds in her maths. Where previously she hardly ever raised her hand in class, she is now offering solutions regularly and 9 times out of 10 getting them totally right. I can see how much her confidence has grown under the guidance of her mentor at LUDOWIDE.

My mentor helped me to make healthier choices...

My self-awareness improved. My LUDOWIDE mentor worked on helping me to identify signs that I was becoming stressed, such as subtle changes in my emotions. I also started to notice how things like sleeping and eating affected my mood; we came up with playful solutions to my sleeping routine. My mentor helped me to make healthier choices. I noticed that I had more energy and felt less lethargic. I also learnt that exercise helps and started climbing, bouldering and doing boxing. I find that I can channel my energy into this when I feel overwhelmed or restless.

We feel so much closer as a family...

We feel so much closer as a family since having used LUDOWIDE mentoring. Our daughter is now able to recognise signs that she needs help and reach out for it.

They use different techniques...

LUDOWIDE does not hesitate to use different techniques to interest and motivate their sessions. My son bounces to the door every time his mentor arrives.

personalised advice...

LUDOWIDE tutored my 13 year old son for a few months. The tutor has helped him gain an academic scholarship at a top London day school, providing him with the most personalised advice on his reading and writing. The mentoring we received alongside the academic work was invaluable. The tutor would write down or email us tips for the exams, so that my son felt fully supported during the process. After a few months, he was confident enough to work on his own and although we don’t speak English at home he is now at the top of his year group in English.

...helped my son build confidence...

LUDOWIDE has been incredibly inspiring for my 11 year old son, not only from an academic point of view but also on a more personal level. The tutor has an amazing connection with him and a real interest in his well-being. In fact, more than a just an academic coach, the tutor has been a fantastic mentor for him. LUDOWIDE has helped my son build confidence.

They are thriving alongside the teaching...

When we first came across LUDOWIDE, we asked around and found that a lot of my daughters’ friends actually had mentors from the company too! We were overwhelmed by how positive the feedback from our friends were and now have a different mentor for every one of our three children. They are thriving alongside the teaching of LUDOWIDE.

transformed my shy and worried son...

My son used to say he didn’t like English. It was knocking his confidence in several areas of his learning. At ‘What you want to be when you’re older’ day at school at the end of the year, he proudly stuck a label on his jacket that read: author. Our LUDOWIDE tutor has transformed my shy and worried son to accept who he is whilst also reaching for the stars

...like and older sister...

My daughter looks to her mentor like she would to an older sister - for advice, guidance, a challenge and a good laugh.
(Father of 11yr old girl, August 2018)

Our daughter communicates honestly and openly now...

As with many other young people, we noticed our daughter used social media to connect with peers and to experiment with her self-image and identity. We were amazed with how the mentor at LUDOWIDE came up with various innovative and fun exercises to explore the discrepancy between our daughter’s ‘offline’ and ‘online’ image. It’s amazing that she now recognises the impact that social media was having on her mood and self-esteem, and has identified that she had been using it as a coping strategy. Instead of using photographs as a mask, our daughter has now uncovered a passion for photography that she shares honestly and openly with followers in a blog.

invaluable life coach and role model for our daughter...

The famous Persian poet Rumi once wrote: “It’s your road and yours alone. Others can walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.” In the often-challenging journey of a child’s life, LUDOWIDE’s teaching of positivity, flexibility, playfulness, independence and resilience made them the perfect choice for us as a family. They have helped our daughter to walk the road and enhanced its beauty enormously. The mentor has been an invaluable life coach and role model for our daughter, supporting her while teaching her to walk the road alone.

practical and playful solutions...

This is probably the easiest reference I have had to give given how special LUDOWIDE is for young people. My daughter and I would not be where we are together now if it wasn’t for them. Through their mentoring, they have helped us find practical and playful solutions, as a family.
