Feedback For Eleanor (5)
My daughter really struggled with English, her ability and confidence in the subject was so low it effected her ability in other subjects. Thanks to Eleanor`s friendly, welcoming manner, excellent knowledge of the English GCSE and A level spectrum and ability to use different teaching methods to suit my daughters learning needs, my daughter`s knowledge and confidence has grown significantly. She has recently achieved grade 6 in English and exceeded her predictions in all other subjects.
Eleanor we cannot thank you enough.
In just a few short weeks prior to GCSEs, Eleanor started to tutor my daughter and made a such a huge and positive difference to her that it was almost unbelievable. My daughter had a complete lack of confidence in her own ability in English, felt that she was under-achieving and did not know why or what to do about it but wanted to improve her grades. She needed some practical help and someone to believe in her and Eleanor did both with the result that her grades changed from two-year working levels in English Language of a 6 to a 9 and in Literature of a 5/6 to an 8. An amazing result! My daughter is delighted, she worked hard for these results and fully deserves them but we could not have done it without Eleanor. I would highly recommend her, she listened and taught my daughter so appropriately that she was able to succeed and beat her targets. I cannot thank Eleanor enough for listening and giving us a chance. It made all the difference.
My son immediately felt relaxed in his first lesson and wants to continue to learn with Eleanor.
Very good Tutor
My daughter has learnt so much more through Eleanor would highly recommend her as a tutor
