« Christine has been tutoring my daughter in the lead up to her GCSE English language and literature. To say we are delighted with the progress she's made is an understatement! From the initial meeting, Christine quickly identified the gaps in her learning and with her expansive knowledge of the GCSE syllabus and examination techniques ensured that Niamh was taught both the content and skills needed to feel more confident in the subjects. I have no hesitation in recommending Christine as a tutor. »

Christine has been tutoring my daughter in the lead up to her GCSE English language and literature. To say we are delighted with the progress she's made is an understatement! From the initial meeting, Christine quickly identified the gaps in her learning and with her expansive knowledge of the GCSE syllabus and examination techniques ensured that Niamh was taught both the content and skills needed to feel more confident in the subjects. I have no hesitation in recommending Christine as a tutor.

Christine has conducted individual and group sessions at regular intervals right up until the exams which has given Cameron essential techniques to tackle each exam confidently. Christine has been able to show Cameron how he should approach each paper, what the exam board (AQA) require, how to structure his answers and just as importantly give him confidence going into each exam. Thank you so much Christine you have taken the pain away from English revision!

My son has thoroughly enjoyed his learning experience & we all feel that that it has benefited him immensely. Christine is very passionate about learning & make lessons interesting & enjoyable. I can't wait to inform Christine of his exam result & will definitely be utilising her services again when my daughter starts her GCSE'S.
Can't thank her enough!
