Feedback For Simon (4)
Simon quickly put our son at ease and is improving his confidence. He has been patient with our son - taking time to understand how he learns and exactly where he needs help. He has been flexible and found a good balance between structured and free-flow writing, whilst encouraging our son to write more effectively. Simon has always been punctual and has discussed his plans with us each week.
Within the first lesson Simon had accessed my daughters weak spots in English and started to work on them. He was very conscious in telling her that she should tell him if she didnt understand something and in no way was that a weakness. It was giving her confidence to cross question topics to gain a fuller understanding. My daughter is currently sitting her GCSE Mocks and really enjoying her lessons. All credit to a teacher who knows how to engage with his students to take them to there full potential. Would fully recommend.
My daughter has, so far, had three lessons with Simon so it`s quite early for feedback, however what I can say is that Simon is very punctual, well prepared and friendly - he seemed to put my daughter at easy almost immediately and she is already more confident in her lessons.
We can highly recommend Simon, he is most professional and my son has enjoyed working with him and has regained his confidence with English.
