It has been a pleasure to work with Dalia during my sons final year of GCSE. Her brilliant teaching coupled with regular homework tasks managed to help my son go from a 5 to a 9 in English Literature in under a year, as well as helping him go from a 7 to a 9 in English Language. She also encouraged guided independent work and was willing to answer any questions he had during exam period as soon as possible. Thank you Dalia and all the best!

I can`t even begin to explain how helpful Ms. Dalia`s sessions have been for me. I went from struggling in English with mock grades of 5 and 6 respectively in English and English Literature to getting an 8 (missed 9 by one mark) and a 9 in my GCSEs. Whenever I was confused about a concept, Ms. Dalia brilliantly explained it to me and continued explaining things in different ways if I didn`t understand. Not only that, but she also gave me helpful quote banks that guided my revision. Her positive and enthusiastic behaviour made the sessions much more enjoyable for me (despite the fact I wasn`t really a fan of English) and hence I strongly recommend her. - Riya (I took my GCSE`s in May `23)

My son started taking English language lessons from Dalia for his 13+ exams when he was in Year 7 and he successfully got in to the school he wanted. Even though my son is in Year 9 now, he is still taking extra lessons from Dalia because she has built a good teaching relationship with my son and he feels very comfortable with her as well as her teaching style. Dalia is extremely dedicated, very friendly, very knowledgeable and very well organized. Would highly recommend Dalia, she is a wonderful teacher.

I cannot recommend Dalia highly enough. My son`s English grades were around 5 in year 10. At the beginning of year 11, he started to work with Dalia 1.5 hours per week. His GCSE results were a 6 and 7. It is an amazing progress and I do not know where we would have been without her. Thank you very much Dalia.

Dalia is fantastic, her ability to connect with her pupils is super. Her teaching style is relevant and we have seen fantastic results from the support she has given. My daughters confidence and ability have increased dramatically. Dalia is encouraging and practical using recent tests results to form the structure of the lessons. She has the ability to really bring the subject to life and in turn creates engagement with the subject for the pupil. An excellent experience.

I have only had lessons with Miss Dalia for about a month now, but I am happy to recommend her. She is well organised, supportive and patient. What I like the most about Miss Dalia is she is kind, well prepared and very knowledgeable. My mum also likes the fact that I am also given homework to make sure I have understood the topic area.

Dalia, is a perfect find and she is very professional and capable of getting results and progressing any child. The 11 plus examination preparation is a challenging milestone. Her lessons are well planned out and targeted to suit to school that your child is applying for. she is also able to offer English Language in preparation for the forth coming comprehension and reading skills. Her personality is very warm and her kindness is a bonus as it creates a perfect relationship for success.
