Feedback For Tracy (9)
Tracy is incredibly personable and manages to pitch explanations at a very bepsoke and appropriate level for both the individual and topic being covered. Has a great deal of patience! Always prompt and in my experience, finishes the topic regardless of time. Outcome rather than process focused. Excellent!! Most highly recommended.
My daughter likes Tracy and feels that she is a a good at teaching gcse science. She has been helping for just over a month now once a week, and my daughter says she finds it very useful, and would like to continue. Gcse exams are in about 7 months
We would therefore highly recommend Tracy.
Tracy is a very good friendly tutor and our son has progressed significantly since she has been tutoring him in chemistry and Biology.
Tracy has only visited us a couple of times, but has already made an impact on my daughters learning. She is friendly, patient and encouraging and taught my daughter more in the first session than she learnt in most of Year 12. Would definitely recommend her to others.
Great tutor. She was very helpful trying to find a convenient time that works for us all. My daughter is very happy.
Mrs Tracy has only been 3 times so far but I can honestly say that she has made such a difference to my child`s confidence. She makes sure they understand the syllabus and will go over anything they are unsure off. We are so glad we found her to help with our child`s understanding of Science.
Tracy is wonderful, she is punctual, well organised, professional and certainly knows her subject. My daughter has grown in confidence in biology as a result, would thoroughly recommend Tracy, we are so pleased we found her.
She is a very confident biology teacher , she knows her material very well, she is a great support and help to her student.
