Feedback For Sara (3)
Sara is an approachable and organised chemistry teacher. She is really helping my daughter grasp her A` Level Chemistry with on-line tuition and we feel very lucky to have found her. We would highly recommend Sara as a tutor. Family Cook
Sara has been tutoring my Y13 daughter in Chemistry weekly for the past 5 weeks. I had specifically looked for a Chemistry specialist on the site and was pleased to find Sara, who has a PhD and extensive teaching experience. Sara is well-prepared, punctual and reliable. She has an in-depth knowledge of her subject and has helped my daughter to gain a firmer grounding in Chemistry. But above all, she is patient and kind and continues to work hard to develop my daughters self confidence and belief in her own ability and understanding. Every week I ask my daughter if she is happy to continue with the lessons and every week she tells me, without hesitation, that she is. I have no hesitation in recommending Sara as an A level tutor.
Sara has been tutoring my son who is just starting Year 13. He is near the top end of the ability range, hoping to get an A*. He feels she is excellent - very clear and organised and adding real value to his studies.
