ace tution what a joke!!(1 Post)
Hi i recently had a very abrupt sales rep from the Ace tution centre which has centres all over the uk . Just wanted to know if anyone 1 else had a visit from their rap a Chubby brown haired/ beared man call MATT.
He refused to answer questions like why they advertise on their websites that they charge £8.70 an hour and its 3 hour session. So i assumed that works out at £27? WRONG!!The actual cost is £41 for the 3 hour session. How? well they charge you 3 hours teaching which he said is free and you pay 1 hour for the teacher to mark the work and £13 for books!! CONFUSED SO WAS I . He couldent give me an break down in fact all his figures were wrong!!! And to add insult to injury he said he had never seen the companys website?? The rep MATT avoided answering simple questions that was on the information on the company sheet about unlimited access to books etc he didnt know the answers would you believe and some he avoided answering!! yet he represents a fast fast expanding tution centre all over the uk!! Personally they are just a business that is overcharging for everything they sell compulsory booklets for £4 each for which you must buy 4nfor every session, they are just cheap colour copied work books that have the same works as most standard work books!! so i was shocked that Mr Matt from Ace tution couldent answer mmost of my questions and did a quick simple asessment like 2 minutes on my child even mark the assessment. He gave no POSTIVE FEEDBACK ABOUT MY CHILDS STRENGTH OR WEAKNESS. THEN ASKED ME FOR £700 FOR 4 MONTHS to secure a place . I THOUGH HE WAS HAVING A LAUGH AND COULDENT BELIEVE THAT THIS MAN GAVE NOTHING YET WANTED EVERYTHING!!
Then WENT ON TO SAY THAT MY CHILD WONT SUCCEeD UNLESS THEY GO WITH ACE TUTION, AS they are the only ones that are cheap THE OTHERS LIKE KUMON ARE RUBBISH AS YOU MARK YOUR OWN WORK WITH THEM.
PLEASE parentS question these tutors and TUTION centre you will send children as most tend to just overcharge and rip people off as they know that parents want children to succeed so they give it all the talk and give you the illusion that your child cant succeed unless they go to these overprice money making centres AND THAT PARENTS CANT TEACH KIDS!! WRONG MOST OF THE MOST INTELLIGENTT CHILDREN HAVE BEEN HOME TUTORED!!
I am dispointed as the moment the man came in his was rude and brash and gave little info and lacked manners and was very professional. He wanted £700 upfront to secure a place otherwise my children will FAIL inlife and not go to oxford or cambridge!!! I told him i must discuss this with others as its a big fianicial commitment and he kept going on that he had to go and moned that he couldent come back was very unprofessional made no effort to justify why i should spend all that money he just said it not my childr wont be sucessful!! I told the man off and said that all children are gifted in differnt ways!! not all want to go uni their are other trades that dont require uni but this man has got to the worst rep ever for a tution centre he was scatty, didnt know what he was talking about and was surprised when i said i needed ime to think as its a lot of money !! He just brushed it off as if £200 a month was nothing and he said they are the cheapest FOR 4 LESSONS!! would welcome feEback on anyone with similar expereince please
