EDUCATIONAL CONSULTANCY SERVICES
Academic assessments and school choices
- Schools advice: Choosing the right primary and secondary school, or university, for your child is a vital and often difficult decision. As education consultants, we offer up-to-date and sound advice on school and university choices based on our in-depth knowledge, years of experience in preparing children for school applications, and strong relationships with educational institutions.
- JK’s academic assessments: Our assessments establish both your child’s academic progress and potential. The detailed results feedback and advice we provide as a follow-up to an assessment are vital in guiding your next steps towards choosing the right school for your child.
- Preparing children for exams and interviews: This includes tutoring, coaching in exam technique, and one-to-one interview coaching and practice.
- Identify and support special educational needs (SEN), ADHD, ASD, speech and language difficulties, short-term memory, executive functioning, processing, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, and handwriting difficulties.
- Specialist assessments by educational psychologists, speech and language specialists and occupational therapists.

We are featured in the Good Schools Guide A List of tutoring companies and consultancies, with a glowing review:
“They certainly know their onions when it comes to education – a combination that makes you feel instantly at ease with them, as well as in safe hands. ‘These women are something else. What they don’t know about the system isn’t worth knowing,’ one parent told us.”
“What we like about JK Educate: Katie and Lorrae’s knowledge of the educational system and curriculum and their ability to target appropriate schools through their assessment process. Correctly matching tutor personalities to suit the pupil. High standard of tutors.”
PARENT FEEDBACK TO JK SURVEY
“I would highly recommend JK Educate. Tania and team have been with our family on our son’s 11+ journey from the very beginning- from an initial assessment, all the way through to interview preparation. They also helped my son match to tutors that brought out the very best in him and supported him in a way that was most suited to him. I would highly recommend the JK team!”
“Friendly personal service which has a genuine desire to assist with children’s educational development and progress.”
“Firstly, congratulations on JK Educate being recommended by The Good Schools Guide! I also remember being impressed earlier in the year as I read an article in the Telegraph by yourselves.
You have given us plenty to think about – thank you. We are absolute beginners in the private school world and will take time over the weekend to consider the next steps.”
“We had a great experience with JK Educate, especially with Tania who gave a really comprehensive explanation of our daughter’s assessment and helped us in the decision of which direction to take in her further education (transition from primary to secondary school). Tania agreed to teach our daughter English in preparation for her 11+ exam and the progress was amazing in just seven months of work.”
