Amy has been teaching my daughter English for GCSE. My daughter used to hate English, but Amy gave her motivation and a passion for it! She was delighted to have a 9 in her GCSE! Thank you Amy, I highly recommend her.

I studied at uni with Amy and she really helped with my final year dissertation. English is not my native language and so she proofread my dissertation many times and helped me with grammar and the structure of my argument. I've really learnt a lot!
