review(s) for Gilli.
Excellent tutor. Makes learning fun and engaging. My daughter loves going to her piano lesson each week and her passion for learning to play has grown in the last few weeks, since she started learning with Heather.
Mrs Gilli was a wonderful tutor who could not have been more attentive to my needs. She is an extremely dedicated and talented tutor who I would recommend unreservedly.
Tutors Response :
Thank you for your feedback. Heather
My son REALLY did not want a Spanish tutor as he expected it to be just like another hour at school. However, Heather is nothing like he expected, he`s learning so much and improving each week with the friendly, focused & personalised learning. The lessons pass very quickly and my son admits that he`s really glad he goes - its nothing like he expected. I have absolutely no doubt that his GCSE grades next year will improve as a direct result of these sessions. Thank you!
My son has gone from a predicted C to B in just 3 lessons. Fingers crossed for an A by next year! Gilli is patient, kind and thorough. We couldn`t have asked for better.
Tutors Response :
Thanks so much for your feedback.
Gilli is an excellent teacher. My son was predicted a C, in French, but managed to grab an A*. Highly recommend this teacher.
We have been having lessons with Gill for a few months now . My daughter was struggling with writing and pronounciation in French and German . But after attending lessons she has been praised on her accent and her writing skills by her school teachers . After a few months she gained an A* in her German coursework . I would definitely recommend her lessons
started going to gilli with my lad 3 weeks ago, and we are both finding it very interesting and learning a lot , would definitely recommend her to anyone wishing to learn german
My daughter met the tutor and has had two sessions so far which have been very successful.
