My daughter's exam technique improved significantly in addition to her subject knowledge and general confidence. As a result she went from a grade E student to achieve a grade A in her GCSE science exams. I am very grateful and would highly recommend.
Margaret the tutor was absolutely spot on in identifying my son's needs. Her expert help enabled him to channel his efforts to achieve the A grade in Biology
he needed to be accepted at vet school. He would not be there now had it not been for Margaret's excellent guidance. I would highly recommend.
I was really struggling with the new biology syllabus and was getting D's and C's in end of topic tests and a D in my mock. One of my friends recommended me to Margaret and I am so glad she did! She was such a good teacher, teaching me all the techniques of how to answer exam questions as well as giving me lots of practice question papers that weren't given to me by the teachers, so I had so much more practice. Thanks to Margaret I got an A in the end in biology which I was over the moon about
My daughter pass the 11+ and we got our first choice school. Many thanks to Margaret for the excellent tuition service. Would highly recommend.
My child really struggled with science and had completely given up on getting any sort of grade at GCSE. Margaret was the third tutor I had tried. Thanks to her unique approach to teaching and her patience and understanding; that not all children understand a topic after being taught it once my child completed the GCSE science exam and is now at college.
My son was working at a grade D in his A level chemistry and was starting to lose his confidence. After tuition with Margaret he achieved a grade B in the summer exams and got a place at university. I am very grateful for all her help and support.
