Heather was a great tutor for our daughter. She is kind and warm and knows her stuff taboot! Heather knew exactly which areas our daughter needed to focus on and helped her in a way that made sense. With guidance from Heather we were able to support our daughter`s studies throughout the week also. Heather was so good, she`s now working with our younger daughter. Definitely recommend.

Heather has been giving our daughter Maths GCSE level lessons for a few weeks now. She has been reliable so far and has a soft kind approach with lots of patience! It is however too early to say if our daughter`s results at school have improved yet. Would recommend this tutor.
