« Tegan is a very conscientious individual who works to a very high standard. She has shown that she engages well with younger students and that she has the ability to help them develop skills and strategies for problem solving whether that is academically or related to sports. Tegan has recently completed a set of tutoring sessions in English with a pupil at a local school. She has experience in sports leadership with children under the age of ten years , and is currently coaching and managing the Sheffield University English Society netball team. She excelled in a School Challenge of Management and was invited back the following year to successfully mentor the current year of students. Tegan is an enthusiatic student who herself has been tutored in the past and she has the empathy , knowledge and understanding required to be a first rate tutor. I have no hesitation in recommending Tegan as a trustworthy tutor. »
