Nicola has been a fantastic influence on our daughter whilst preparing for her 11 plus. Even with all the lessons on Zoom, the quality of teaching never altered and the care and Pre planning that went into each lesson was admirable. It was never a chore to get our daughter to engage in her lessons as Nicola is very personable and formed a connection with us all. I would highly recommend Nicola, with the added bonus that our daughter passed her exam!

Our daughter has been working with Nicola now for several months. She genuinely looks forward to seeing her every week and has progressed in all areas. Nicola has been extremely accommodating during lock down, providing zoom lessons that have been essential in helping our daughter progress in very difficult circumstances. She also makes it a fun experience.

Nicola has been our son’s tutor for over a year. She was preparing him for 11+. Our son loves the lessons with her. He has improved significantly in the school and more importantly he has gained in confidence in all subjects covered by Nicola. We will continue with Nicola in the new year and I would recommend her for anyone seeking for a excellent, caring, and friendly tutor.
