Feedback For Vera (14)
Excellent Tutor... highly recommend!
Really enjoying my German lessons, Vera is very patient with me and allowing me to set the pace of the lessons. Would definitely recommend Vera.
Vera is amazing and has already made a real difference to my Year 11 son who was struggling with German GCSE.
Very helpful and encouraging tutor. Lessons provided in friendly atmosphere helped me to believe I could really learn German
Very approachable tutor, and was very accommodating in terms of tuition slots. The one to one lesson location is quiet and amenable to learning. The tutor has all the knowledge required and is always prepared for the lesson and follows up afterwards with tasks and assignments. You are expected to practice in between lessons. Vera has a good approach to teaching and has managed to compel me to follow up on lessons. If you are serious about learning a language and are within driving distance, definitely the tutor for you.
My 15 year old son has had 3 sessions with Vera and already feels his German is improving.
Vera has a gentle, encouraging style but is also fun. She has high standards and worked hard to help my son make good progress. Lessons were held in her relaxing home and he always came home smiling and keen to practise. Thank you Vera, we miss our visits...
Vera is exactly what I wanted in a 1 on 1 German tutor. She makes me feel comfortable and relaxed when I`m learning. She goes at my own pace and answers any questions I have. I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Vera :)
Vera helped us out at short notice due to being let down by another tutor.
She was very prompt with her responses and my son gelled with her friendly manner immediately.
Vera is friendly, professional and works at a pace that suits my learning. She is flexible with regards appointments and I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend her.
Vera has been great, she has a lot of patience and she makes the lessons interesting.
I feel I have made the a good choice.
Vera was very prompt in her initial replies and we quickly scheduled the first session for less than a week later. She`s only been round a couple of times so far, but we are very pleased with her knowledge and approach and look forward to continue working with her.
My wife and I started a refresher course in German last week with Vera. She was excellent and we learned a lot and had a lot of fun. We continue with our learning next Friday.
Very enthusiastic and supportive tutor!
