Feedback For Claire (6)
Claire has been a fantastic tutor for our 10 year old and we have really noticed her confidence grow since she began her weekly lessons. Our daughter was always happy to meet with Claire and was always positive chatting about the sessions afterwards. We wouldnt hesitate to call upon Claire for any help in the future!

All going well so far (1 month in).
Tutors Response :
Thanks Nick, so pleased that her predicted grade has gone up - she is doing so well!
Claire has been an excellent tutor for my son, aged 13. He had some gaps in his science knowledge which Claire figured out quite quickly and addressed very thoroughly. He was getting 80-90% in scholarship science papers after a few months` tuition with Claire. She is super-responsive to the student, always cheerful, and makes lessons not only effective, but fun. Highly recommended!
Tutors Response :
It has been a pleasure teaching your son, his enthusiasm for learning is endless and the engagement he gives during lessons is truly rewarding. Thank you for entrusting me with his education!
Claire was lovely with my 19 yr old daughter with some learning needs in preparing her for GCSE Maths. I`m sure she would have been effective too if Covid19 hadn`t interrupted plans. Would recommend.
Thoroughly enjoy my lessons with Claire, she is able to adapt the lessons to meet my learning needs. The lessons are always productive and she explains everything clearly. Claire has made a structured plan to cover as much of the course content as possible. She is always happy to help, would recommend!
My son was not overly keen to have a tutor but Claire is lovely and my son is really enjoying his lessons. We are so pleased.
My daughter is currently completing her first year of Alevels, one being psychology. Claires help has been invaluable. Claire always ensures that she helps in the most effective way meaning my daughter gets the most out of her sessions. I would recommend her to anyone.
