Feedback For Susan F. (18)
Tutor very knowledgeable and polite thank you for your help Susan.
Very personable and informative with a flexible approach
Sue has a lovely bubbly warm personality. She comes prepared for each session and is accommodating to our needs. My daughter is currently studying English and Geography with Sue at G.C.S.E level. I would recommend giving Sue call if you are considering home tutoring. The convenience of someone coming home is a bonus. It gives my daughter has more time after school to relax & prep for her session, rather than traveling back and forth. Highly recommend Sue :)
Susan was very professional, prompt and reliable. She tutored our daughter in her first year of A level Business Studies and made a big difference to her knowledge levels and confidence. So much so that her school teachers increased her predicted grade at the end of year 1 and she did achieve a great A level grade.
Tutors Response :
Thank you. All the best for the future.
Great tutor my daughter really enjoyed her hours lesson, very informative and would highly recommend
Needed a tutor for son due to do a`levels this year,site gave me plenty of choice. Due was good choice,she is punctual and reliable,she is experienced and has very useful knowledge to share on the examiners process . She has also given our son practice questions and been flexible as to what they do each session .
She is really a good teacher. She comes little bit early and spends time with the tutee and explains nice and clearly. Hope my daughter gets good marks and should move to higher grade.
Susan was always punctual and communicated well with us. Shes very friendly and approachable and my son got on well with her and I feel he was receptive to the techniques she gave him for his exams. She taught him what the examiners are looking tor which I dont think hed had at school. We are still waiting for his exam results so fingers crossed!
Susan has always been easy to talk to and understand my sons needs. She has always arrived a couple of minutes early and has been happy to use her own time to share information at the end of session. I am happy to give positive feedback as it is deserved.
Very pleased with Susan
Susan is extremely helpful and has developed a positive relationship with our son. Early days, 3 week in. Her communication is excellent and she links in with school to enable learning. No results from exams yet, and that is the only reason we have not given a 5.
Tutors Response :
