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.

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 couldn’t have gotten through biology A level without Carmen’s 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!
