About Us

We are an after-school, supplemental tuition service with the aim of supporting your child’s education, in English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics from primary to GCSE and A level. Our main aim, therefore, is to help improve your child’s levels in the key skills. Beyond this, we promote our flagship 11+ course and consultation service for those children who are a strong level 5 and have an aptitude to read courses tailored for 11+ examinations. If you are looking for an institute who can guide you and your child through the 11+ system then we are here for you!

We are local, personal, caring and professional, and we have over 20 years’ experience with many success stories. Our Aletheians (alumni students) are ever present in many of the grammar and independent schools of the West Midlands (and beyond). And they return to use to tutor the new generation of Aletheians!

What does Aletheia mean?

Aletheia is variously translated as “unconcealedness”, “disclosure”, “revealing”, or “unclosedness”. The literal meaning of the word ἀ–λήθεια is “the state of not being hidden; the state of being evident.” It also means factuality or reality. It is the antonym of lethe, which literally means “oblivion”, “forgetfulness”, or “concealment” according to Pindar’s First Olympian Ode. It derives from ‘alethus’ which means ‘true’, literally ‘not concealing’ from privative prefix a- ‘not’ + ‘lethe’ (‘forgetfulness’, ‘oblivion’). It is “the state of not being hidden; the state of being evident” and it also implies sincerity, as well as factuality or reality. As such, aletheia can be translated also as ‘remembering’. Its gender is feminine. It is pronounced ‘al-e-THEE-a’.
