Carol provided English tutoring for our 14 year old son during his year 9. It took just a few weeks for us and our son to see the immediate benefits. We were particularly impressed with Carol's ability to balance being hands off, whilst guiding our son when needed, offering pointers and tools to aid and progress with his English.Carol is experienced and talented in enabling positive outcomes over a short period of time, believing in the pupil from the outset.
We contacted Carol in August 2017 as our daughter's English Language result had not gone as well as expected Â ( She only achieved a Grade 3)Carol was very quick in getting back to us and provided our daughter with the tuition to go into the November resits well prepared and confident.Â Our daughter achieved the required Grade 5 and we are very grateful to Carol for this.We found Carol to be a very good Tutor, very knowledgeable and would not hesitate to use her again.
Carol has tutored our Son since Christmas 2017, as he was scoring '1's in his English Literature and Language Mock tests.
We are so grateful to Carol for helping to improve our Son's grades and also boost his confidence. Carol has proved herself to be very reliable and works hard throughout the session. In our Son's recent mocks he scored 6's and 7's in both English Language and Literature.
