"All my sons grades went from Cs to Bs in 3 months.""All my son's grades went from Cs to Bs in 3 months." – Parent from Chigwell School
"I have to say, things are just getting better and better for us at home. Even friends and family have commented. Both my husband and I agree something is happening and we are very grateful. William's increased attention reduces our stress and of course that itself has a positive impact." - Parent from Woodford Green area.
My 13 year old son had an evaluation with smart Start Minds last October. He started having his concentration training a month after that and half way through the training sessions, we began to notice a difference in his ability to focus on his school work for longer. He began to spend longer on his homework and was also happy to do revision after completing his homework. He now feels very good about himself as he can see that his grades are improving. I’m so happy to see his attitude to learning change for the better. My son is now a very independent learner and I cannot thank the amazing team at smart Start Minds for such an excellent job.

Would you recommend us to your friends? Please say Yes or No and explain why:
- Yes, because some of my friends struggle to focus at all times even outside of school and I definitely think it would benefit them.
Please write a short review of your Smart Start Minds experience:
- I have really enjoyed doing the concentration training because I have met some really nice people and have enjoyed the whole experience because now I know how to keep focus in class without daydreaming. Thank you
"We continue to get good feedback from O. She got 'star of the week' yesterday at school for her class for 'her beautiful handwriting and diary entry' which is a first, her writing content has been good in the past but her handwriting has got in the way. The concentration training seems to have calmed her whirlwind approach in all areas with great results."
