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.

Tutors Response :

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 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 daughter’s 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!
