Tricia has been a brilliant tutor to my son - incredibly knowledgable and supportive. Encourages him to develop his love of English through challenging texts. He got a high distinction in his last Trinity exam.
I have known Tricia for about 10 years now, we met when we worked in the same building and I would have no hesitation in recommending Tricia as a tutor. Her wide range of experience and depth of knowledge mean that she can call upon different approaches where necessary to ensure that your tutoring sessions are entirely focused on achieving your goals. Tricia cares deeply about what she does and you will see this in the way that she delivers her tutoring sessions in a way that is tailored to you.
I've studied with Tricia for many years and I would highly recommend her lessons. Tricia is professional, well organised and a very experienced teacher.
