I have been taking English Literature classes from Olive and it is a real pleasure to work with her. She is not only intellectually stimulating but also very professional and always very well prepared for our lessons.
Olive has been an excellent tutor. My daughter loves having lessons with her, and communication has been top notch.
She has been very polite and accommodating throughout.
I can recommend her wholeheartedly.
Olive’s English tutoring has really turned things round for my daughter. She believed she wasn’t a creative person and was totally switched off from English. Olive’s positive attitude has made a huge difference and the lessons have been completely personalised to my daughter’s needs. My daughter is doing so much better in English now and has gained hugely in confidence. Massive thanks to Olive for all she has done!
Olive has an extensive knowledge of literature and a genuine love for language making her the perfect tutor. She is full of enthusiasm, energy and passion which makes her a brilliant tutor. She is diligent, thorough and professional and I would recommend her as a tutor.
I had been struggling to write during the lockdown. So, in my desperation, I signed up for a creative writing tutor who turned out to be Olive. A lot of her advice about narrative structure, story structure and even just get-myself-into gear prompts has managed to get me out of my rut and I'm now putting in at least half an hour a day into my writing. I feel like I'm getting back on track with my novel. I'm not sure whether or not I still need help, but I've continued the lessons as it helps me feel accountable and it's good to know there's at least one other voice out there expecting a result from my efforts.
Olive tutored my son Oliver when he was in Year 5, she was an amazing help with his English and because of her expert help he successfully got a place at his chosen secondary school. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Olive.
Olive is such a dedicated teacher. She really takes the time explaining the things I need to learn and is really patient and kind. I really enjoy our lessons together!
