Report: In depth knowledge of iGCSE English. Linda has been in constant contact with my son even outside of lesson time to constantly review his coursework and provide him with helpful tips and further study recommendations. I have no doubt I picked the best tutor for him. Linda tutors many students from my son`s school and is very familiar with the requirements and standards.

Report: I am writing to let you know about our experience with Linda as 11+ tutor for our daughter. Linda managed, after only one term, to secure our daughter offers of places at the Latymer School, Highgate, and South Hampstead High School. (My daughter of course, had something to do with this outcome.)
Anna liked Linda and always felt happy about going to tutoring classes. She didn`t feel intimidated, or anxious. . In fact, she enjoyed learnin

Report: Linda tutored my son to fill in the gaps missing in his knowledge which school did not adequately teach.
Linda done this and more.
His school report subsequently was the best he has ever got and the end of year 5 exams he got fantastic results. He is now in top sets for all subjects which we did not expect.

From Katrina (5/5): (Primary Entrance Exams) Linda has been a great support to our 10 year daughter during a year of weekly 1:1 tuition, resulting in some excellent progress in both Maths and Literacy as well as solid preparation for the 11+ entrance exam. Linda also helped us initiate the formal process to verify that our daughter has mild dyslexia. She has a nice pleasant manner and consistent approach...

My daughter had lessons with Linda to try to get into a grammar school and passed every English exam from the help of her. She only had lessons for a few months and her English improved drastically. Linda was given a short amount of time to work with my daughter as we weren't expecting the exams to come so early. We had long lessons and she did as much as she could to help my daughter. We are very grateful for Linda and we would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a good English tutor.
