I am tutoring a young man in both geography and biology, his confidence has improved massively since our lessons began and his grades are improving as a result. I have spent a lot of time going through exam papers with him which has highlighted areas that he needed help with as well increasing his familiarity with the exam questions. (He got an A and a B)

I tutor 2 sisters who are now in year 10 and 13, I also tutored their sisters all the way through GCSE and A level, they are both at University now.

I worked with Amanda as her second in science at school and can confirm that she is an outstanding teacher. The quality of her lessons are very good and both inspiring and full of rich learning.

Having known Amanda for a number of years now, I truly believe in her and her ability as a tutor. I’d have no problem in recommending her. Amanda has a lovely style in her teaching and gains the very best from her pupils. Thanks for everything Amanda

Thankyou so much for helping Rhianna. She got 3 A* in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. You helped her gain confidance in all of her subjects.

I went to Amanda for tutoring A level with Biology. When I first went to her I lacked confidence and I was failing in every area of the course. Amanda didn't seem fazed by this. Week by week I gained in confidence and went from U grades to A grades in some of my module exams. She could identify my strengths and weaknesses and worked with me to try and improve.
I am now studying Biological sciences at Aberystwyth University. Without Amanda's help I wouldn't have got to where I am today.

Pryanka has enjoyed the last three years of tutoring with you and is well on her way to achieving A* in her GCSE's.

Amanda is a great teacher who listens and is a great support. I was an adult learner needing to pass my Science GCSE. She supported my learning and created lots of experiences that were creative to ensure the learning was enjoyable.
