Feedback For Karen (3)
Very helpful tutoring for my 5 year old son. Very thorough and focussed on his development objectives in line with school curriculum.
We have just started tuition for our 2 year old twin boys. Karen is great with them, really relaxed and friendly. She puts them at ease straight away. Seems to have a focussed and planned lesson for them each week and advises me also on things I can be working on with them at home. She asked very willing to show me her impressive CV and dbs certificate. Shes really great! X
Tutors Response :
Thank you for your positive feedback Neena.
I couldn`t recommend Karen enough - she is a very patient and accommodating tutor who has extensive expertise and experience of the English curriculum and particularly working with primary school-aged children.
She was able to build a rapport very quickly with my daughter and engage her in the work at hand. I feel lucky to have found a tutor like her.
