Feedback For Julie (8)
Julie is an amazing Spanish teacher who has really helped my son. She is very patient and has developed a great rapport with him. I have no hesitation at all in recommending her.
Our daughter loves her sessions with Julie, which combine plenty of games and speaking work with more technical aspects of grammar etc. We are definitely seeing the benefits in her performance at school and wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Julie.

Julie is tutoring my son in Spanish GCSE and so far he has found the lessons to be very engaging and really helpful. His confidence is Spanish is definitely improving. Julie has assessed his current standard and identified areas to work on to maximise the value of the lessons.
Julie tutors our 9 year old in Spanish online via zoom, she engages very well and my daughter looks forward to each lesson.
Very thorough and very helpful
Julie is an excellent tutor who really understands the students individual needs. Hannah is extremely happy with the progress she has made and is confident of a high grade at A Level as a result of Julie`s invaluable advice and feedback.
I would thoroughly recommend Julie Thomas as a tutor as she is well organised and good at explaining any French language difficulties. She is well prepared with extra curricular exercises, is patient and as a student I feel that I am making excellent progress.
