Feedback For Alison (4)
Alison is a very experienced, knowledgeable and a motivating tutor. It is clear that she has mastered her teaching skills as my son managed to move from a C to an A within about 2 months of weekly lessons.
From the feedback Ive had from my daughter, who Alison is tutoring in Psychology, we are very pleased with progress to date, despite the need to tutor remotely via Skype. My daughter gets on with Alison very well & is happy with the arrangements. Alison communicates promptly with us. Very satisfied.
Alison is a kind and understanding teacher who makes sure that you feel comfortable with the basics before moving onto the more complicated areas. She always finds a way of explaining the subject so that it makes sense. Thank you for helping my daughter.
My daughter has been visiting Alison on the lead up to her A levels. Alison has given her confidence in areas of Psychology that she missed due to illness or required further explanation in. I wouldn`t hesitate in recommending Alison to anyone considering additional tuition.
