Feedback For Carmen (18)
My son is studying a level biology in year 12 and has been having sessions with Carmen once a week. She is organised and practical with lessons and works around Joshua and his needs. He enjoys the sessions and finds them extremely helpful in supporting his learning of the course. We would recommend Carmen.
My daughter has only just started seeing Carmen but she has already seen an improvement in her biology understanding.
Outline expectations,Encourage goal-setting,Identify strengths & weakness and working on it.Doing more past papers & giving detailed explanation. Personally I am very happy. Highly recommended.

Carmen has been such a great help to me. I am very glad to have found her! She knows her subject very well and teaches it with great clarity and interest.
Very committed and a wonderful teacher
I highly recommend Carmen as a tutor. Her lessons are well prepared and her teaching style is dynamic and engaging. She would always follow up the lessons with additional information and practice questions. Carmen prepared my daughter exceptionally well for her A Level Biology exams, developing both her understanding and confidence.
Whether it was the question papers, extra notes and helpful links she emailed me throughout the week or the slow and thorough way in which we paced through each aspect of the course, I couldnt have gotten through biology A level without Carmens constant support.
She is very patient in explaining points and highly knowledgeable about the subject, further than just the course itself.
With weekly lessons I was able to improve my grade immensely!
I would definitely recommend!
