I cannot recommend Colleen highly enough. My daughter has always struggled with English and Literature throughout her school career. This problem was made worse by a very poor English teacher during her GCSE course, making us very anxious that her English grade would let her down compared to her other subjects. My daughter is quite shy and was somewhat anxious to have a personal tutor. She need not have worried at all though as Colleen is a lovely lady. We warmed to her immediately and she put us at ease straight away. She was very communicative, consulted us continually and let us know her plan for my daughter throughout her time tutoring Ellyn. My daughter was achieving a grade 3 (equiv. D) in English literature and we were concerned that we had left it rather too late to make enough of a difference. However, within only 5 months, Colleen`s tutoring raised this grade up to a 7 (equiv. A) and we are completely delighted. Thank you, thank you, thank you Colleen.

Colleen is a very knowledgeable English tutor. She was able to assess my son and tailor her lessons to suit his needs. Although we had a couple of lessons with Colleen, it made a big difference. My son felt more confident after each lesson with Colleen and always went on about how much Colleen believes he can do well in his up coming exams. Colleen also guided him through some interview skills which was invaluable.

Colleen has worked wonders with my 13 year old daughter whose results in English have improved significantly over a short space of time. There are not enough words to describe how inspiring, motivating and professional this tutor is.
My only disappointment is that I hadn`t found her years ago!

Colleen took the time to get to know and understand the learning need/style of my daughter, which was the perfect approach to help support her learning. My daughter now enjoys English and has gained a pass in her G.C.S.E of a much higher grade than predicted. Couldn`t have asked for a more perfect approach from a Tutor, thank you!

Colleen has been a fantastic help with our 10 year old son (getting him prepared for his 11+ exams). She is calm and patient and is really supportive. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Colleen, she has been such a help and I can`t thank her enough.
