Feedback For Julia (12)
Julia has been absolutely wonderful with my 12 year old son. She is patient, kind and has a lovely manner with him. He was anti getting any help at the beginning, but after just one session with her he liked her so much he wanted to carry on, and has really improved as a result. Thank you so much Julia!
Absolutely first class tutor, my daughter is really enjoying her sessions with her. Everything is explained clearly and well and is making a difference with my daughters understanding and also her confidence.
Really pleased. Julia engaged immediately with my son and delivers the lessons in a way he is able to understand and not get overloaded. My sons confidence is now growing in this subject.
My son had only two meetings with Julia and I have already received an email from his English teacher saying that he`s done progress in class. Julia`s pedagogical skills are one of a kind and I am highly recommending her for great results!
Julia has been utterly incredible for my son`s understanding of Othello. She has a wonderful way of coaching and has in a very short time already improved his perception of the text significantly

Very happy with Julia always comes prepared for the lesson.My daughter enjoys her lessons with julia.
Seems very nice, my daughter seems to learning a lot already.
Julia is really helping my 12 year old son with his transition into learning about English literature at secondary school. She has found a way of connecting him with the subject so he doesnt feel like he is having a lesson. I would highly recommend Julia.
Julia is a friendly and kind teacher. My daughter has improved a lot since they started working together. I would sincerely recommend her to other students.
My daughter is preparing for GCSE English and needed a boost in confidence. She is very happy and comfortable with Julia. Julia appears well prepared for each session.
