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.
