I have always found Fern to be reliable and trustworthy as well as being a fantastic teacher, mentor and coach during our time working together. She is extremely conscientious and would have no Heston recommending her.

I have worked with Fern twice, and both times she has shown to be conscientious, hard working and thorough in her work. She takes pride in a good job well done. She has a very personable manner, is a very thoughtful and caring co worker, and a general joy to be around.
I have always been impressed with the energy Fern brings to work, and found her enthusiasm and good nature very motivating. She would be a great addition to any team, and as a tutor, would be very engaging.
