Feedback For Gaynor (5)
Fantastic, supportive tutor with great subject knowledge!
We could not have asked for more of a wonderful and totally committed classics tutor for our son Joe. Gaynor clearly loves teaching classics and goes above and beyond for every single session. Despite lockdown, we are confident that with Gaynors invaluable help Joe will have achieved his potential. Thank you Gaynor, Joe has gone from strength to strength over the last year, and he genuinely misses his classics lessons now that they are finished. We highly recommend Gaynor to anyone needing a classics tutor.
Gaynor is an excellent, knowledgeable professional tutor. She is dedicated and cares a great deal about her students ` progress. She has been an amazing tutor to my son in preparing him for a 6th Form Exam Entry. Gaynor never hesitate to give him extra time on each session ensuring that he understood and progressed in the subject. I would greatly recommend if you are looking for professionalism and excellence.
Gaynor is a very good tutor, who knows her subject well.
Gaynor has taken an interest in our daughter`s A-Level ancient history which goes far beyond the hour they spend together each week. The lessons with Gaynor have given her a different insight into her studies and helped her to focus on the sources and other key areas of a challenging course.
