Feedback For Natalie (10)
Natalie is a brilliant tutor and a very nice lady. I couldn`t recommend her enough! Her passion for teaching is evident in the smiling faces of the kids leaving her house at the end of each lesson. She`s pricey but you really do get what you paid for: A 100% professional, results orientated approach with a deep understanding of what the selective schools are looking for. She tutored our (not academically brilliant) daughter for about 18 months for one or two hours a week and we ended up with offers from 3 top London independent schools and waiting list for one other. Enough said.
Natalie has been a great tutor in English for my daughter currently in Year 7 - Very inspiring she managed to connect well with over online classes. Natalie is full of positive energy and makes classes very interactive !
Natalie was extremely enthusiastic and very focussed with our daughter. She provided highly enriching sessions that very much progressed our daughter`s learning and development. We found there to be great value in the work that Natalie did at all times - she was so organised, expertly informed and super motivated for our daughter`s success. Due to a house move, we could no longer continue sessions. However, we do hope to work with Natalie again in the future! We highly recommend her!

We contacted Natalie to help our son with his creative writing for the 7+ exams. Initially the sessions started well, although we were never allowed to enter the premises to see her purpose built classroom. Week five Into our bookings, we arrived for our session to find no one was there. We waited outside her home for the full hour and later that week were contacted. Natalie apologised stating she had a family emergency. Sessions then moved to our home (at Natalies request). During this time three further sessions were cancelled at short notice. Natalie was often late. Explaining that earlier sessions ran-over and apologising. She did make the time up but this often affected our weekend timetable. Things finally deteriorated to a breakdown in the relationship when eight weeks ago Natalie did not turn up at our home for my sons session and until this day, we have not heard anything from her. I would not recommend this tutor.
I sent my twin boys to Natalie when they were 2 yrs old in preparation for some schools we were entering the boys into. She is lovely and very enthusiastic about her teaching. Parking can be tricky on the road but we always managed to find a space. The boys covered a wide array of learning with her which I felt was all relevant and they always seemed to have great fun with her. I liked her play approach to learning with thjs age group. She also runs a nursery business from her property which I initially worried would take time and attention away from the boys but Natalie would always makesure the boys had full attention when they were with her and actually they got access that way to more resources she had like a great outdoor play garden. Feedback sometimes felt a bit rushed but when I pushed for more information after a session, Natalie was always willing to answer my questions. I think she is a good tutor, great with kids, pricey which probably reflects the area she works from but I think in the end it was money well spent and we are so grateful for her help.
Natalie has been a first class tutor for my daughter. She took her from struggling in Maths and English and lacking confidence to passing both 7 plus exams for LEH and Surbiton and giving us the headache of a choice. I would throughly recommend her.
She is a friendly and enthusiastic tutor who is experienced in eleven plus exams. My son is happy to have tution by her and she added much to him in a short time.
She is amazing! She is full of energy and optimism, my child very much looks forward to learning from her!
Natalie was a terrific tutor to our twin boys and little girl who were all doing 11+ and 7+ at the same time (nightmare!).
Natalie was prepping them in 3 areas: verbal & non verbal reasoning, maths and english.
Her style is focused, professional but friendly. She tutors at home in a custom outhouse where you got the impression they could really focus.
She did a great job. The kids were always happy (enough) to go and enjoyed the progress they made with Natalie over an 8-week pre-exam blitz.
Natalie also felt very well informed about the nature of each test and the nuances of each school`s criteria, which helps to build confidence in the parents.
I would thoroughly recommend Natalie for 11+ and 7+ prep.
I could see my child`s progress after few lessons since we`ve started. My kid is very enthusiastic going to her classes. Rate it with three stars only because of commercial driven approach to the classes.
Nataliè is a big help and already after a few tutoring sessions our daughter makes somewhere progress
We are really happy to have Natalie as a tutor. She is very much straight forward, very good with the kids and very much confident. She really knows what she is talking about :). Happy to have her.
Very experienced tutor and positive, energetic person.
Flexible in hours and content, teaches what your child needs while considers parent`s opinion.
The two most important things that I observe:
1) My children find these sessions fun rather than boring
2) My children make progress
