Tutor sessions with Aileen were fundamental in restoring my confidence and my passion for English. I felt comfortable discussing and working through difficulties I was having because of her approachable nature. Her knowledge of the subject helped me understand, but also thoroughly enjoy, the texts I was studying and this was a real pleasure. Under Aileen's tutorship I achieved an A in my A-level exams and I also regained an enthusiasm and confidence for a subject with which I was struggling.
Thank you so much for helping my daughter. She said it has been really helpful and has given her more confidence to complete her assignments.
