Helen helped my daughter`s prepare for her English GCSE exams and did an amazing job!

Nat (Mrs)

2/5 Rating

We had two lessons with Helen. Helen excels as a general English teacher, but we had a specific request and it seemed to us that Helene was not sufficiently prepared, with the result that my daughter was bored during the lessons and refused to have any other. Nevertheless, this does not call into question Helen`s qualities as a teacher. I would rather consider making greater use of her expertise for children whose first language is English.

We did not have many sessions with Helen because my child`s requirements changed but she was a kind, gentle tutor; what we needed at the time for a slightly under-confident child.
