Online tutoring is scientifically proven to increase grades & confidence

One-to-one online tutoring can transform academic performance and boost confidence, setting students on the path to long-term success.

3 in 4 students improved by up to three grades with GoStudent’s personalised tutoring
90% of students who improved academically also reported increased confidence levels


A comprehensive independent study, conducted by Research Director Dr. Tricia Thrasher, surveyed 2,616 parents and students using GoStudent across Europe. The research was designed to evaluate the impact of one-to-one tutoring with GoStudent on students' academic performance and self-confidence across various school subjects. Students ranged from 6 to 18 years old and primarily received tutoring in Mathematics, Sciences, English, and Foreign Languages.

Supporting Academic Recovery

Around 7 in 10 students who were previously on track to fail a subject achieved a pass grade after committing to personalised tutoring.

Strong Science Progress

83% of science students improved their grades after 9 months of consistent tutoring.

Excellent Maths Progress

80% of maths students improved their grades after 12 months of consistent tutoring.

"One-to-one tutoring with GoStudent not only enhances academic performance but also boosts student self-confidence and motivation. I believe that these attributes associated with one-to-one tutoring with GoStudent will contribute to a student’s overall learning process, promoting lifelong learning."
