Tanya (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

Kerry is a friendly and patient tutor and makes sure I`ve understood the task. She asks if I like the task she sets me and if I`m comfortable doing it. I`ve only had two lessons with her but she`s helped me massively already. Her lessons are both fun and helpful.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for the great feedback. I`m so pleased to hear that you are finding the sessions helpful and fun.

We could not be happier! I worked in Germany and my son grew up bilingual, after returning to England he needed help in catching up for GCSE English. It is going very well, Kerry is calm, friendly and with a high level of professionalism.

Tutors Response :

Hi David, Thank you very much for your feedback. It is very encouraging for me to hear that you are happy. I am really enjoying working with your son.

Julie (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

Have only been using Kerry for three weeks. She is getting on well with my son, very courteous, calm and patient. Obviously difficult to assess after only three weeks and I’d rather have left a review after a longer period but TutorHunt sending almost daily reminders about leaving a review so I had to leave this now. Kerry seems like a very nice lady and we look forward to continuing to work with her.

Tutors Response :

Dear Julie,

Thank you for your kind feedback, I`m sorry to hear that you have been plagued with requests for feedback. It is not something that I have ever experienced but I am grateful.

My son feels his knowledge of English has already improved after 2 weeks. I would definitely recommend Kerry as an English tutor.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for your feedback. I really appreciate it.

Janette (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

My son has been receiving private English (GCSE) tuition from Kerry for 9 months so far. He has Social Communication needs and was lacking confidence in his learning when we first started these sessions. Kerry showed a high level of patience in the first few weeks to settle his nerves, gain his trust and reassure him about his capability. Gradually his confidence in his own ability in English has grown and having been working at a level below gcse standard when he started he is now on target to achieve a level 5 result when he completes his learning next year. Unlocking his confidence and skills has helped him not just to start achieving in his English but has helped him to push up his levels across all his subjects. We couldn’t be happier with what Kerry has achieved with Our son.

Tutors Response :

Dear Janette,

I am really very happy to read what you have written.
Thank you very much!

Kerry has been tutoring my son at GCSE level for over a year now, and I would highly recommend her.

Kerry is calm, patient and kind. She is also very knowledgeable and really knows how best to support him with his learning difficulties. She is also professional and reliable, and communicates very well with me.

Tutors Response :

Dear Alyson,

Thank you very much for your feedback. I am very grateful.

It is a pleasure to see how your son`s confidence has grown, particularly this year as he approaches his GCSE year.
