We have found Sylvia to be a very competent tutor to our 11/12yr old son, she has been very patient and caring and really puts an awful lot of thought into the lessons, nothing is too much for her.

Sylvia takes her pupils as individuals. She considers their individual needs and is prepared to research for ages in order to best meet their needs. My daughter (year 5) is dyslexic and was very frustrated. She started with Sylvia 8 months ago and is now doing comprehension work with passages from Dickens and Heaney! Even more important, she now feels confident to read aloud in class and join in activities. Syliva is highly recommended.
