Feedback For Laura (11)
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 wont get his results until January, If he doesnt 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.
My son has felt at ease with Laura from their first session and he is certainly feeling benefit which will lead to confidence with his GCSEs Very happy that Laura is helping us

Laura is really helping my daughter with her GCSE English, she is patient and thorough, we look forward to some excellent results.
Laura was very helpful in helping my son revise for his GCSEs and I would definitely recommend. We are confident that he has passed his re-sit thanks to Laura`s help.
Laura is a thought provoking and diligent tutor, who inspires our son to think and act in a more mature way and positively affect his understanding and enjoyment of the subject.
Laura tutored my daughter through her final year of her GCSEs. 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. Cant 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.
Laura is an amazing teacher, just exactly I was looking for: lessons tailored according to the individual needs of my grandson; cooperative, kind. I recommend her to all my best friends.
Laura helped my son with English IGCSE , my son found Laura`s communication and understanding easy. Great teacher.
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
Laura is a very helpful and well organised teacher, who has assisted my daughter Nadia with her build up to her English GCSE. Laura is very friendly, punctual and makes the lesson very enjoyable.
