Clare is an excellent Geography tutor, my year 11 daughter finds her friendly, informative and really helpful. It is clear that she knows the course well and is very familiar and comfortable with the exam process. She has great ideas for exam answers and she focuses on and breaks down past paper questions in a way that is easy to comprehend and learn from. We are delighted to have Clare as a tutor and would definitely highly recommend her.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for such helpful feedback.

Clare was lovley however she was dry and read from a textbook and didn`t teach interactively. I found it extremely hard to learn.

Tutors Response :

Thanks for your feedback Charles. It`s a pity that you only had one session, and that I wasn`t the right fit on this occasion. My preferred tutoring style is interactive, as both parties then benefit.
