"In June 2014 Peta began to work with Charles, who at first seemed reluctant to have to do timed comprehensions, use descriptive language when writing structured essays etc. However, over the course of time, Peta's patience, knowledge, understanding and enthusiasm made a remarkable impact upon Charles. He quickly began to really enjoy her tutoring sessions and the progress he made with her was phenomenal.

I have found Peta to be a high quality tutor. She has a very professional approach to sessions and is excellent at creating exercises and scenarios.
She provided detailed feedback which was focused, practical and insightful. As a university level diploma student, it enabled me to make big improvements in a short space of time.
Her training and experience have made her knowledgeable about the skills and techniques for professional level communications and I enjoyed working with her.
During my working with Peta, we started by experimenting to personalize the exercises and find those best suited to me. Her expertise, her ability to notice even small differences, and her clear instructions have allowed me to literally discover my natural voice after only a few sessions.
The improvements in my professional and personal lives have simply been tremendous.
Peta is an excellent teacher who is able to get the best out of her pupils. She is efficient, hardworking and her work is stylish. I would highly recommend Peta as a tutor.
