Parent of GCSE student.
« When I contacted Sue I asked her to do something that no other teacher since primary had managed to do, to encourage my daughter back into education. She did more than that. Sue was wonderful; she was extremely patient, encouraging & understanding As a result, my daughter was able to sit her GCSE English exams. I cannot thank Sue enough for not only being an excellent teacher, but more importantly for giving my child her confidence back, and giving her hope for the future. »

Parent of A Level English student.

Sue tutored my daughter Ellie for her English Language A Level & English Literature A Level examinations. As a result Ellie gained a place to study English at Queen Mary's University of London, her first choice. Sue was wonderful. She was always very focussed on what Ellie needed to work on & provided resources to help her take her studies further. She was always punctual, friendly & polite as well as flexible when arranging tutorials especially leading up to exams. We are very grateful.

Susan is fantastic! She is always prompt and prepared for lessons that are focussed to bring out the best in students. My daughter really gained confidence and exam technique with Susan and was delighted to achieve a grade A in her A Level. Thank you SO SO much Susan!
