Information about Heather

I like to make learning a really positive experience and build on what students already know in a step by step approach. I don`t have a blanket approach to tutoring, but prefer to develop a personalized strategy to meet individual needs.

References:
A2: At the beginning of the year I was under confident in A level chemistry but now, after weekly sessions, I feel ready for my exam and have much more confidence. Heather`s teaching style is topic-specific and well structured, it`s a relaxed and friendly environment and I would recommend her to anyone doing chemistry.

A1: Thank you so much Heather for the help you have given our daughter with her AS Chemistry. She has gone from a U in her mocks in January to a B in her AS`s this summer - amazing! She loves Chemistry and this result has really given her a boost and the belief she can achieve the A she needs at A2. So glad we have you on board for the next stage and cannot recommend you highly enough :-))))

A2 chemistry: My son is really benefitting from lessons with Heather. She finds just the right approach to each pupil, responds to their needs, is supportive, understanding and appropriately demanding. My son is both, inspired and driven, by these lessons, and I am very thankful that we found Heather.

11+: Heather tutored our son for the eleven plus. From the very beginning we felt very comfortable with Heather teaching him as she made everyone feel at ease. He loved having Heather around every week and never felt he was being put under any pressure. She was able to make him understand the questions being asked in preparation for the exam, something we as parents would never be able to do. Heather showed the highest level of professionalism and was very easy to talk to about any concerns any of us had. We could tell she cares extremely deeply about the children she teaches. Our son passed his eleven plus and Heather will be going on to tutor our other children in the future. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending her to anyone.

Heather has tutored my 11 year old daughter for 18 months. My daughter needed more help to uplift her confidence and improve in English, Maths and Science at KS2. Since Heather has tutored my daughter I have seen a big improvement in her progress this year. Her end of year report showed that she has improved considerably in English, Maths and Science. Heather is very friendly and approachable and my daughter really enjoys the techniques and methods that Heather uses. I would recommend Heather to any parent who wishes their child to progress further.

Heather is a great tutor with both her manner and her approach in very quickly being able to identify my child`s ability to work on both his strengths and weaknesses in all key areas. She makes him feel very comfortable to ask any questions and understands his personality and learning style which has brought a new found confidence in his ability and progression at school. He also always looks forward to his next session with her which is an added bonus!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, Heloise x

Heather has a great, no-nonsense approach. My son comes out of every lesson with positive comments. She has been really flexible and accommodating and has even altered lesson times so my son can have a lesson the day before each exam.

Tutors Response :

Thank you Laura. It`s lovely to receive such positive feedback!
