My child only attended one lesson , he said in that hour he only talked with the tutor,and didn`t do any work at all. I was looking forward to go in side the house on the first lesson and discuss a few things,also make sure my child was comfortable, but I was told at the door step by the tutor to collect my child in an hour.

Joanna is kind and friendly. She knows her subject in depth and explains difficult concepts in an easy to understand, calm manner. Its been a few weeks since our son started working with her, but we can already see his confidence in the subject growing. Our son likes Joanna`s teaching style and we hope that with her continued support and encouragement, he will achieve an A* in English Language and Literature.

Joanna is kind, personable tutor who knew straight away how to engage my son into discussing books and topics that interest him. We`ve only had 2 lessons so far, but we are planming to continue long term to boost my son`s literacy skills. Excellent.

Amazing tutor to be honest. I would have loved to have more sessions but because Joanna only teaches at home, it was too far for me to travel. Her home study area is very good as she has a range of materials there for her students. She seems well experienced and learning with her is very natural.

Joanna is an excellent tutor and with out her my daughter couldn`t have achieved an A* in both English Literature and Language for her GCSE.

Michele (Ms)

5/5 Rating

An excellent tutor. My daughter, who is dyslexic, was predicted two E grades in her GCSE English exams. With Joanna`s expert tutoring she achieved two C grades and can now do `A` levels as she has her English Language GCSE. Worth waiting for if currently busy. Highly recommended. Very experienced, knowledgeable about the exam requirements and a lovely person!

I was not able to use her service as she teaches at her home and does not visit student, but so far I know from friends and family she is an excellent teacher and her students like her very much.
