Charlotte helped both of my sons achieve their first choice school with her support of 11+ English. She made the lessons fun, varied and targeted to each of their specific needs. The exam tips and positivity proved invaluable in what seemed like an unachievable goal at certain times!

We had two 2-hr sessions with Charlotte during half term break, and our son found them to be very useful and boosted his confidence in preparation to his GCSE mock tests this week. Not only was she able to quickly identify the gaps but she also knew how best to fill them effectively. She is experienced in tutoring and very responsive to communicate to. We have been very pleased so far and look forward to have more sessions when she's available in the coming months.
