« Izo had previously worked for us back in 2015 with two of our employees regarding a conference they were due to speak at, and was immensely helpful at working on the speech, communication skills and preparation techniques. This year we needed Izo again to work with 7 of our employees and one client over Skype. She was very easy to work with, gave us detailed plans of what would be covered in the 4 hour workshop and the group were highly satisfied with their training afterwards." March 2016 »

My husband and I spent a long time trying to find the right teacher for our son Benjamin. Benjamin finds it hard to articulate his words clearly and Izo came highly recommended to us. She continues to work with Benjamin every week on his R and S sounds and we're extremely pleased to see how much clearer his speech is and how his confidence is growing because of this"

When I first went on tutor pages I was looking for a teacher who would make me feel really relaxed and comfortable. I was immediately drawn to Izo's pink hair and glad to see she was well qualified. I booked in six lessons with her and we developed my communication skill. Izo is very structured within each session and gives specific feedback and homework to do in between sessions so that you can keep improving. I look forward to going back to see her to work on a presentation"
