Claire was a lifesaver for my dyslexic daughter who was really struggling with A-level chemistry. Her endless patience and confidence building skills helped enormously. Without her help, my daughter would never have passed.

Claire tutored me for several months in the run up to my Chemistry A Level - with her help I improved greatly over the period, understood concepts I had never been able to grasp before and most importantly gained confidence in my ability! Claire was very flexible in her hours and was able to tutor me more often as exams neared which was especially useful. I would recommend Claire to any student looking for some Chemistry help.
