Abigail is a very bright tutor who is knowledgeable, patient and attentive. Her tuition has proved to be effective and successful having helped Phoebe's success in achieving Grade A s in both subjects in her GCSE result. We are very satisfied with her and will highly recommend her service to any parents.
Abby has tutored both our children as and when needed for the last few years and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. She has an intuitive sense when it comes to adjusting her teaching methods according to each child's needs. Both my children found her extremely helpful and friendly and their vastly improved marks speak for themselves!
