Gemma (Miss)

5/5 Rating

Laura is very professional and friendly, she gave my son his confidence back, she worked with him to find out what his Strengths and weaknesses are and worked with him to make sure he has a good clear understanding all round. We only had Laura for a very short period of time as my son took his GCSE English Exam in November and we won’t get his results until January, If he doesn’t get the results he needs, we will most definitely have Laura back to continue to work with him. I only wish we found Laura sooner. I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone and everyone.

Laura tutored my daughter through her final year of her GCSE’s. Laura was a fantastic tutor, my daughter took to her approach immediately and Laura really boosted her confidence with emotional support as well as accaemdic. My daughter went from grades 4& 6 to gaining a 9 in English lit and 8 in English language. Can’t thank Laura enough. 5 star tutor, wish I had started sooner with Laura as it helped with my daughters confidence and emotional stability through her exams also. Laura is passionate and I would recommend her very highly to all.

Kian (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Laura, Provided a class 1 service to Kian to support him through his English exams this year. Kian found Laura`s application and approach to teaching very easy to understand and follow. Laura had a very good insight to Kian learning needs within two sessions and Kian grew with such confidence that would not have been there if his only learning outlet had been his schooling lessons. I will be recommending Laura to all my friends and family and am so very thankful for her help and support in helping Kian achieve his grades. A brilliant tutor. Thank you
