"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
