« From the first time we met Sheena she put us all at ease. My son looked forward to his sessions with her and the change we saw in him was fantastic. He entered the Trinity 10plus exam with this extra confidence and focus. He went in in with a big smile on his face and come out with an even bigger grin. We were thrilled to hear he had passed and have no doubt that Sheena played a significant part in this.   »

From the first time we met Sheena she put us all at ease. My son looked forward to his sessions with her and the change we saw in him was fantastic.
He entered the Trinity 10plus exam with this extra confidence and focus. He went in in with a big smile on his face and come out with an even bigger grin. We were thrilled to hear he had passed and have no doubt that Sheena played a significant part in this.

I always wanted to learn to read and write English. When I came to England , I was busy taking care of my children. Now I have time to concentrate on myself. Natasha has made me feel very confident to speak English and now I can fill out forms at work. She is like a friend. My literacy is much better now. Thanks to Natasha

Sheena has worked miracles with my 9 year old daughter who was sitting the 11plus. She had problems being able to write stories and understand comprehensions.Sheena very quickly identified what my daughter needed most help with and was soon giving her tips on how toaapproach texts. I couldn't believe it when after just one term my daughters teacher said to me " whatever you're doing , keep it up !" My daughters work was used as an example in class and we were ecstatic when she passed the 11plus
