I have a DBS Certificate
My son's Biology AS level grade improved from a D to a B with the support from Corinna. Being an examiner, Corinna is very knowledgeable in answering exam questions and my son has improved not just his knowledge of biology but also his exam technique. Corinna has a very relaxed and positive approach.
Corinna helped me secure the grade I needed to get into university to study midwifery. I had to get a B and she actually pulled me through with an A! She has such a wide range of knowledge and her experience as an examiner is a real asset. She explained everything so clearly, she helped me look at what the questions were asking and make sure I was hitting key marking points! Would recommend her to anyone. Thanks for everything Corinna.
