Sally engaged with our children and we saw an immediate improvement in their ability, performance and confidence. Both of our children are performing in the top of their class and our daughter recently tested and was accepted to Queens School! Sally is a fantastic teacher and is engaging and compassionate in leading your children to do their best.
Sally is a brilliant tutor, she has managed to raise my daughter's confidence and ability levels in both English and Maths (Year 6) which has resulted in her moving up a set in both subjects at school. My daughter continues to improve week on week. I will continue to use Sally's services in preparation for my daughter's SAT's next year. My daughter enjoy's being taught by Sally and looks forward to her lessons.
Sally's lessons are challenging and fun, and we cover lots of different topics, which makes me feel more confident in maths lessons at school"

We've noticed a real difference in Archie's approach to Maths. Sally's lessons have inspired a keeness to learn, and by making lessons fun and rewarding him for his efforts, she has helped him to grow in confidence."
