Feedback on the Primary years tutors we work with

"Thank you so much for teaching my son and daughter. First of all I was very taken by how fast you could build the connection with them and a great working alliance. Even at times they were unmotivated or tired you could hold their attention for one hour, which in their case is a mighty achievement. They really liked your personality. Progress was clearly visible, and my son still remembers the timetables tricks you have taught him! Lesson summaries via email were very effective and a great reference."

Mother of Year 5 and Year 3 Student

"My daughter was ‘full of it’ when she came off the call yesterday which was lovely. She said how she’d relaxed into it straight away and also said how amazing the online environment is. In fact she said to me she got more out of an hour with you yesterday than weeks with our local tutor or at school. Thank you!"
