Feedback For Fiona (4)
Great help and provided specific questions to help aid my learning
Fiona is always very professional yet friendly. Having only had a few lessons with her my understanding of the subject has already improved and confidence has grown.
She`s very organised, always asks my son before the lesson what he needs and what topic he`s doing in his school.
She`s very patient and calm, doesn`t rush things.
Always on time, and does the full hour.
Very good at explaining things and very good at exam techniques.
I contacted tutorhunt for extra chemistry tuition for my daughter. I picked Fiona from the site due to her proximity to where we live but mainly because of the information in her profile.
My daughter has bonded very well with Fiona and is enjoying her extra tuition but more importantly she feels a lot more confident with her chemistry studies.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Fiona to other parents.
