Feedback For Debbie (17)
So glad we found Debbie, she has been a great help to my daughter. We only started lessons this last term but she is already feeling much more confident about her GCSE. Her conversational French has really improved and she is now enjoying her French lessons. Debbie delivers high quality lessons and she always send us the lesson material in advance, highly recommend.
Debbie has been very supportive helping my son to prepare for his exams despite only starting online lessons with him just a few weeks before exam time. She has been very encouraging and positive with my son, and is easy to communicate with. Debbie has also gone the extra mile to prepare in advance for lessons and followed up with helpful supportive material. It is early days but I can see that ongoing lessons will make a significant difference to his level of German speaking and understanding.
Debbie`s style of teaching is very easy going and she puts you at your ease straightaway, which for me, as a complete beginner, is crucial. The lessons are engaging and enjoyable and a great `work out` for the brain! Debbie is now working with my husband to help improve his French and he is also very much enjoying the sessions. Can highly recommend.
Very knowledgable and understanding..thorough and patient.
Focusing on communication, well prepared for lessons, excellent tutor
I would like to recommend Debbie as a really great and talented tutor. She has professional attitude and creates nice atmosphere at the same time. Thanks to the methods she uses to teach, one acquires knowledge easier. I enjoyed our german classes and conversation and hope to find time for them again soon!
