Amanda is very constructive and friendly. She has helped me further understand how to translate my thoughts to the paper in a way that both represents me and fulfills the criteria for my exams The above is the note my daughter gave me when I asked her for a review of Amanda. We are very pleased we found tutor hunt and Amanda as she is helping with both confidence and enthusiasm.
Amanda has been great tutoring our daughter, providing interesting assignments and helpful feedback. She is also very efficient and easy to get hold of.
My son has had GCSE English tutoring from Amanda and I couldn`t have found a better tutor! She has helped him by explaining what he needs to do, showing him what it looks like, getting him to try it, giving feedback and then helping him understand how to improve his work. His confidence has improved massively, he enjoys his lesson and has been happy to do homework. Amanda sends high quality resources for him to work on during lesson and between lessons. Amanda is fantastic!
Amanda has really help me prepared for my Grammar School Exams through dedicated and tailored tuitions. Amanda helped me improved tremendously my comprehension and essay writing skills. I would highly recommend Amanda to any students looking for english lessons and exam preparations. Best of luck and Thanks again. Amelie
Amanda is a very professional tutor and definitely knows about the subject she is teaching! (English) Her approach to our son is amazing. Amanda really helped to restore confidence in English in our son. Lessons are vey well thought through, resources are sent in advance which is great help in preparation for each session.
Amanda has been a fantastic tutor to me over the last year. She has built my confidence in all skills: Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. We have worked together to improve the Structure of my Sentences, Grammar and Vocabulary. I would highly recommend Amanda as a tutor.
Amanda has intensively worked with my son to prepare him for his English Language and Literature GCSE equivalent exams over a 3 week period. Following the recent lock down it became clear that my son had gaps in his knowledge and was in no way prepared having not had mocks and not thriving with online schooling. Amanda worked with him through the Language and Literature curriculum addressing specific areas and doing a lot of exam revision. At time of writing this review my son is still doing his exams but it is obvious that he feels far more confident in his knowledge and is so much better prepared.
Amanda provides detailed resources to supplement the lessons and provides targeted inventions in the session to clarify any queries on the subject.
Amanda is a great tutor. Both in terms of lessons organisation (always sending resources and feedback ahead of the lessons) and of lesson content. My kids are not exactly active pupils at school, but Amanda encourage them to participate actively and succeed to keep them engaged during the whole session. She identified and patiently address their weak areas. Coincidence or not, my son got an 8+ in his latest English assessment, so I`m really happy with her tutoring.
Amanda has helped my son already, she has identified the development areas and provides positive feedback, highlighting development areas. Amanda is very organised and efficient. Thanks Amanda!
Very good. We have seen a noticeable improvement in our daughters vocabulary, sentence structure and new maturity in speech.
Amanda is a very experienced tutor. She is very nice and patient and always able to accommodate us on our schedule. She always provides very good materials before lessons on different aspects like poem, writing and many more for my girl on her GCSE. Highly recommend.
Amanda is a very experienced and professional English teacher, especially for foreign students who learns English as a second language. She gives suitable level of resources to study before class to help participate well. Her explanation is very helpful to understand better. My daughter was able to go to the private secondary school where she wants thanks to Amanda.
Amanda was amazing,highly recommended and I will be looking to use again in the future
My 14 year old son is being taught by Amanda in all areas of English GCSE Language and Literature. Initially, he had little motivation and hardly any confidence in English but, after a short period of time with Amanda, his attitude has completely changed for the better and he tries very hard in English. His confidence has really grown and his standard has improved a lot. Thanks to her professionalism, sensitivity, enthusiasm and her positive approach to learning, she has challenged my son and brought out the very best in him. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a tutor.
Amanda has been supporting my son with his English ahead of his GCSE exams next summer. My son as found the lessons very useful, interesting and enjoyable. Would happily recommend Amanda to other parents and students.
Amanda has been preparing our daughter for the 11+ Common Entrance Exam. Amanda has been thorough in her approach, covering all areas of the exam and is strong on exam technique. She is a professional teacher and I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Amanda is always encouraging and gives an in-depth guidance on practical exam technique in English Language and Literature GCSE. She concentrates on my understanding of how to answer question after question so that I can focus on accuracy and speed and supports me in every way possible so that I improve my grades.
Amanda teaches me English Adult Learning and is preparing me for The IELTS Exam. I find that Amand`s method of teaching is very supporting and really helps to make a difference to my progress in English and importantly, to my confidence. Amanda is enthusiastic and thorough in her approach and she tailors all her lessons to focus on what I most needs. She varies the lessons to make them enjoyable but, at the same time, highly productive.

Alicja takes classes in English IELTS which involves Speaking, Listening, Reading, Vocabulary and Sentence Structuring, Grammar and Writing Skills. I carefully measure her progress and provide lots of feedback in every lesson. We do interactive exercises in all English skills, we read over all her written work and regularly have tests to ensure that she fully understands corrections made. I always provide interesting listening and reading exercises which include current news and events, inspiring talks and enjoyable stories. Alicja is making pleasing progress in English towards Upper Intermediate Level.
Amanda has the unenviable task of helping a self taught geriatric to go further with her Italian. This she does with skill and sensitivity and deals with all the interruptions from her pupil patiently. Having completed a DuoLingo course, I now have to learn to speak Italian, hindered by a worn out memory. Amanda deals with all the challenges with constructive good humour.
Amanda is both a professional and experienced teacher who has an in-depth knowledge of KS3 and KS4. She has carefully set my daughter`s achievement targets and tailors all the classes specifically to what my daughter really needs. Her homework feedback is always of a high standard in all areas of English Language and Literature. Amanda is friendly and patient and my daughter enjoys lessons with her. I would not hesitate to recommend Amanda as a teacher.
Amanda teaches my 7 year old son Primary English. She is enthusiastic and knows how to really motivate him, prepares her classes well and has a professional attitude to all her lessons. I would highly recommend Amanda as an on line Primary tutor.

Amanda is a very diligent teacher. She knows what my daughter needs to improve her skills in English. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Amanda.
Tutors Response :
I am delighted with Teresa`s progress. As an 11 year old she takes a very mature approach to all aspects of English Language and Literature. Initially, she came to me for KS3 however, she has now progressed onto some KS4 work as well!
Because of lockdown, we can only have a virtual class. Ms Amanda is an engaging and friendly tutor. She listens to my daughters needs and can use different resources to help her to learn.
Tutors Response :
Chloe has lessons on line with me in English as a Foreign Language. She came to me at Elementary level with very limited English grammar and vocabulary. She struggled with reading, listening and writing skills. Her spoken English and pronounciation needed a lot of attention.
She works consistently hard during her classes each week and I am really pleased with her progress. She is now tacking all skills with far more confidence
and is making consistent progress every week towards Intermediate Level. Well done!
