You can tell a lot about a person from speaking to them! If you would like to chat to me about what you want from private tutoring, what to expect from me, or about any difficulties you are having with English, please don't hesitate to send me your contact details and I will call you. I have two grown up children and two young grandchildren, so I understand young people and get on really well with them.

I cannot praise Debbie highly enough for her professionalism and dedication in helping to achieve an A grade in my English Literature A Level. She writes amazing model answers and essays which help to guide you. She helped me to identify my weak areas and we worked intensively on these. To be honest, I looked forward to my private tutoring with Debbie more than my lessons at sixth form college. She makes you feel completely at ease, and she's a fun and interesting person to talk to!
