Couldn't of asked for a better tutor; one that strengthened my writing style and made the syllabus much easier to get my head-around by breaking it down into memorable junks - With the best result possible of 100/100UMS in Unit 4 and an A overall. Highly recommended to anyone that wants to achieve the top A level grades!
Sarah recently undertook the tutoring of our granddaughter in English. She was very professional, efficient and, most importantly, effective. She was able to engage our granddaughter's interest in the subject, increase her confidence immeasurably and significantly improve her performance at school. This improvement was to such an extent that our granddaughter's assessment at school increased by two grades.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah Behan as an English tutor.
Sarah is an amazing teacher and is really helpful. She has taught me how to critically analyse texts and improved my use of English, particularly my use of vocabulary and various writing techniques.
