« 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.

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!

Christine has provided an extremely friendly, reliable, punctual and professional service. My son has worked with her both individually and in small group sessions in the run up to his GCSE examinations. I feel that Christine's help, advice and support has been invaluable. He has now been able to enter his examinations feeling more confident in his ability to answer and interpret all of the questions.

I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending the services of Everything English.

My tuition at Everything English has enabled me to understand and formulate appropriate responses to GCSE questions. I hope that this will bring me much more promising results on results day. English as a subject has always been by far my weakest, this was mostly due to a lack of confidence with my ability to form complex sentences and accurately analyse texts. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Everything English and am very thankful of the skills that I have gained from attending the sessions.

I cannot recommend Everything English enough. Christine is incredibly professional, and worked together with my son to develop the best programme for his GCSE English exam. Following the tutor sessions, my son was better equipped for the exam and confident of his abilities.

Thank you so much for all of the help you have given me over the last few months. You have given me the confidence in my work and ability and have helped me through these exam. Thank you. From Ethan.

Christine greatly helped boost my son's confidence by providing clear strategies for understanding and applying criteria. She also gave him a better understanding of what was expected from a language question as opposed to a literature question. He found the sessions incredibly enjoyable. He improved his written style by embedding quotes, and he realised just what was needed to get the highest grades.

I just wish I had found her earlier! I would definitely recommend her to everyone.

Christine was a huge help in assisting my daughter Lucy prepare for her IGCSE English Language exam. She gave Lucy the tools to understand what was required from the questions and how to answer them clearly and concisely. Lucy really enjoyed the sessions and is returning for tuition in English Literature! Highly recommended!!!
