Feedback For Janet (9)
Janet has tutored my Year 6 child for the past 18 months, during which time she has proved to be a fantastic tutor - reliable, well prepared and always sharing feedback, so the parent feels informed and involved. Janet has provided excellent support in addressing gaps in learning arising from the COVID period and generally providing additional stretch and challenge where needed. She has gone away and looked at the curriculum and SATs closely, always applying careful thought to how make the most of lesson time and tailoring lessons flexibly to the needs of my child. This has involved building in both maths and English (spag and writing) into lessons to keep maximum engagement and interest. Janet has also advised on clear strengths and weaker areas to focus on. She has built a good rapport with my child through fully remote lessons - obviously this depends on the child but the key being working together consistently on a regular basis for a decent period of time. I can thoroughly recommend Janet and am grateful for the peace of mind she has provided over the past couple of years.
Been using Janet for a few weeks now, for two Ks2 children. Could not be more happier. The childrens confidence has grown. Janet is so kind, understanding and patience with them. I highly recommend her.
Great tutor for our children. They made so much progress and enjoyed the lessons.
Janet is a fantastic tutor! Her communication with us was always excellent and she built a lovely relationship with our daughter during their online sessions. Janet was great at identifying the areas where our daughter required a bit more support and in tailoring the content of her sessions to address those areas, always doing so in a really positive way. Our daughter`s maths skills and, importantly, her confidence in maths came on leaps and bounds during her time with Janet, we highly recommend her.
Absolutely amazing tutor, extremely patient with little ones. Will definitely continue lessons.
Lovely tutor, online just wasn`t for us.
Janet has a very calm and encouraging manner. She is patient and thorough, building confidence through examples, questions and fun! My daughter looks forward to the lessons and is now enjoying maths. School has even noticed her increase in confidence. Feedback from Janet is good, highlighting areas of weakness and what they will work on next time, tailoring the sessions to my daughters specific needs and the school curriculum. I highly recommend Janet.
Excellent tutor. My daughter is fully engaged for the whole 60 min Lessons are planned in advance and feed back occurs after the lessons Janet uses alternative techniques and develop new strategies which keeps the lessons fun.
Just had my daughter on the phone 5 mins after latest session with the biggest smile on her face and absiyely buzzing with excitement , that is the best feedback I could possibly give you. In 3 sessions she has gone from a shy girl being very unsure of self to a girl that looks forward to Saturday 10am. She is engaged and growing in confidence every day and taking that into her weekly school work. Izzy, myself and mum would like to thank Janet for her input to date and the positive changes she is helping to facilitate. Highly recommended
