"I really only have good things to say about Shirin, she is professional, clearly knows her subject and has helped my daughter enormously as demonstrated by her end of topic test at school where she got the highest mark in the class. Shirin explains all the material to my daughter in a way that makes it more understandable and I know my daughter feels she would not have achieved this mark without Shirin’s help. She is an excellent tutor."Mother of GCSE Science student
"Olivia tutored my daughter in science for her GCSEs and was exceptionally hardworking, professional and dedicated in her approach. Olivia went out of her way to familiarise herself with my daughter’s syllabus and needs. She was also very friendly and accommodating. I recommend her very highly as one of the very best tutors I have known."Parent of a GCSE Science student
