Hi! I have been a tutor to many for 20 years. Complete success (e.g. SATS levels improved) with all my students, at primary English level, including secondary pupils who need to revise basics. Pace and style of my lessons are tailored to you, the pupil, thus building confidence. Emphasis on enjoyment and building success.
Excellent! Sylvia has been a godsend during these unsettling times and I’d recommend her. My daughter has had a disruptive term at school because of covid and was falling behind in maths. Sylvia has helped her gain her confidence, going back to basics to address her fears with numbers. The online lessons work well and support her learning at school.
- Sylvia's response : Julie's daughter is a delightful, responsive pupil.

Sylvia has shown great care and sensitivity in tutoring my daughter from the age of 10 to 14. She is totally reliable, is open and engaged and wants the best for her pupils, working with them and their parent/guardian, where necessary, to achieve best results. I have no hesitation in recommending Sylvia.
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.
