Sumona is an excellent English teacher. My son did very well in his 11+ exams and secured admission to the well known private schools in the area MTS, HABS. Sumona's teaching and guidance helped him improve and refine his comprehension and creative writing skills. I would highly recommend her for English tuitions.

You have helped my daughter prepare for 11 plus English.She enjoyed coming to you every week. She has improved so much since she has been coming to you. She has got into all private schools that we have applied for: North London Collegiate, Haberdashers, St Helens and even an academic scholarship at Northwood College.
We really appreciate all your help and we're so grateful. Thank you so much !!
Highly recommend

My seven year old son joined English Matters primarily to improve his writing skills. He would fall short of ideas and words .The tutor's understanding the strengths and areas of weakness was great. It made him interested in the subject. He is more confident in writing on various topics -with flow of ideas. This is reflected in his enthusiasm to go for English Matters and finishing the task given at home. Highly recommend!

Sumona is excellent - so full of infectious energy and enthusiasm!! My daughter looks forward to her weekly lessons. Sumona set`s a wide variety of homework from numerous sources and the constructive feedback that she provides is always clear and concise.
My daughter`s comprehension and creative writing skills have definitely improved in the short time Sumona has tutored her. This is evident in her school work and exam success.

Sumona has tutored my son for English GCSE. I have seen a great improvement in his homework and test grades within only five weeks of lessons. Sumona also offered flexible times for lessons and I was quite happy about this. I would recommend Sumona to anyone looking for an English tutor.

Debojyoti

I am really impressed with how quickly Sumona was able to pick up my son Rupam's drawbacks and help him a lot to improve his English knowledge and skills for writing and SAT preparation. She is confident, rational and cognizant on her teaching method.
Sumona is punctual, always available in time and very easy to communicate with. She is personable and a friendly which worked well with everyone.
Thank you Sumona for your help and guidance.

My son has been with Sumona for the last couple of months. He has made an excellent improvement in story writing. I will highly recommend her. She is very polite and gives good feedback every time.

Claire

(GCSE English) Sumona is a genuine , warm and friendly tutor , who has been given the unenviable task of teaching my 13 year old son poetry and other literature .
She has completely won him over with her abundance of material , skill and good humour .
It is always more daunting for a child to be tutored outside their own home but Sumona is so welcoming , my son felt very comfortable immediately .
Seb and I would recommend Sumona to anyone . Thanks so much Sumona !
