Sara is a very talented teacher. Not only does she know everything about both the course and the subject, her confident and passionate approach is infectious and allows to make studying maths enjoyable. Sara managed to pull my daughter's grade from a B/C up to a sturdy A/A* in just a few months of tutoring!
We are very grateful for everything Sara has done for us.
Lovely manner. Very patient and reassuring - explains things in a way my daughter understands and can apply.
Every minute used meaningfully.
I have found Sara to be an excellent tutor. I find her very approachable and she has made relearning maths fun. I would encourage anyone who would like to master this subject to get in touch with her as she is so passionate about maths that it's contagious.
