Feedback For Rachel (10)
Rachel is an excellent tutor. Very engaging, calm and kind. My son has had only a few lessons now, but is happy to go and comes home keen to do his homework. I would recommend Rachel to any parent looking for an 11+ tutor.
Rachel has been completely warm and welcoming, exactly the warmth and reassurance my son needs. We`re only starting our process with Rachel but feel so grateful to have found her, she really gets my son and he is responding enthusiastically and confidentially to starting this journey over the course of the coming year!
Tutors Response :
Thank you Robyn, I`m really enjoying teaching your son and getting to know him.
Rachel was lovely. My child loves her lesson, said it was clear and very easy to follow, most importantly Rachel made the lesson very interesting and the lesson time flow by.
Rachel is very patient with my twins and is working well with them towards 11+, they seem very happy working with her.
My daughter has recently started with Rachel and only had a couple of lessons, but so far so good. My daughter loves her lessons, Rachel makes the hour lesson fun and engaging
Lovely lady who my daughter is enjoying having Maths and English help with. Highly recommend.
We were fortunate to find Rachel mid-way through our daughters 11+ studies. Rachel has a very calming and focused approach to getting the best out of her students. Rachel`s focus on the Math element of the 11+ really help our daughter and challenged her to release her capabilities. With Rachel`s help, our daughter successfully passed the 11+, with very strong results.
Rachel was a fantastic find on this site! Never used a site like this before and was abit worried about paying the fee incase it wasn`t legit....but so pleased I did. My son really likes going to his tutor session and I feel like he his in very safe hands. Always keeps me up dated on his progress in person and via email.I would highly recommend both Rachel and the site.
Rachel has been tutoring my son for several weeks to help with the year 6 sats test and my son has enjoyed the sessions and has got more confident, so we would recommend. Sadly, we have decided to stop tuition as we are boycotting the year 6 sats test.
My son has had a few sessions with Rachel for 11+ English. I am happy with the way Rachel is teaching him. He is not enthusiastic to go, but he responds well to her approach and seems to enjoy the tutorials once he is there. She sets him a realistic amount of homework to do for the next session and seems to have identified his areas of weakness. We have booked in with her for a regular weekly session. All good!
