Feedback For Joanne (11)
Joanne gave our daughter some late tutoring just in advance of her GCSE exams. She was friendly, efficient and helped a lot. Definitely recommended.
Joanne was so helpful in tutoring me for my exam, if I didn`t understand anything she was more than happy to explain it again for me to understand. She set up the sessions around my strengths and weaknesses and has really helped me become more confident in my maths and has helped me develop my maths skills.
Very good tutor and did well remotely
Wonderful teacher . My daughter looks forward to all her lessons and Joanne has boosted her confidence in the subject. Joanne is very caring , easy get along, flexible with her time and teaches around my daughters need . What more can you ask !
Its early days, but Joanne seems to have the measure of our daughter! Our daughter, a reluctant maths student enjoys her lessons with Joanne which we believe is the key to success!
Joanne tutored a reluctant 19 year old student, in maths, initially face to face at home, and then on line during the pandemic. The full GCSE maths syllabus was explored. The student`s confidence and ability were greatly improved, and course work was submitted in support of his examination. We still await the results but are hopeful of a much improved result. Joanne also evaluated more complex work and provided solutions to mathematical problems.
Joanne is a very good tutor who is able to make learning fun
Sadly we could have one lesson and my daughter enjoyed it thoroughly.
Joanne is fantastic with my 15 year old who is normally very shy and she seems to have come out of her shell. I would most definitely recommend Joanne as she is a warm, personable individual as well as as a great maths tutor in the very short space of time that we have known her.
