Very helpful

Jo is an excellent teacher, with her extensive knowledge. She came well prepared for the lesson and was punctual. On every level, we were reassured that our daughter would be in capable hands to guide her to be more confident in expressing herself in writing and able to draw her out. We asked Jo to assess our daughter ability and where we need to concentrate on. Jo was brilliant and demonstrated her ability as a teacher and showed great patience.

Jo was fantastic. My daughter had 6 weeks of tuition with Jo prior to her English lang and lit GCSE. Her predicted grades were a 4 and 5 but in fact she achieved an amazing 7 and 8. Jo helped to build her confidence, knowledge and how to deal with the exam papers. She was flexible, amenable and very positive. She really went the extra mile to support and assist. Thanks so much.

Jo seemed like a very efficient teacher who clearly had great subject knowledge. We only had one session with her and she could not continue as she had taken on a new job with many responsibilities.
