Absolutely fantastic. My son wanted the help but was apprehensive. Jane was amazing right from the very first time we met her and the progression was so visible. Highly recommend
Jane has been great for Izzy - she has boosted her confidence and inspired her to improve her writing.
Thank you Jane, you are a wonderful teacher. In less than 4 months, Jane help our son to pass his GCSE. He has always tried so hard at school, but English was always a problems. Janes calm, encouraging approach, was exactly what was needed to give him back some confidence. We are so grateful for everything Jane did and would recommend her if you are in need of a GREAT ENGLISH TUTOR.
Thank you Jane, you helped Izzy get the grades she needed to get into Birmingham university. You gave her a real confidence boost and helped her consolidate her learning. Money well spent!
A good site which was easy to navigate.
The tutor we selected is absolutely brilliant and is certainly giving my son new skills and the confidence he needed to go through his GCSE studies.
Could be better if consistent with attending tutoring sessions
Jane is an amazing tutor. I was in my U grades when she first started tutoring me and raised me up to B grades really soon. I was really amazed by her skills as well as my own doubted skills... she also built up my confidence so much before my GCSEs this year that I am sure that I will get the results I need in my English GCSEs!
She`s such an amazing, kind and assuring person that I will recommend her to anyone who is struggling or has lost confidence in English.
I don`t know how much to thank you, but thank you so much Jane.
Jane was an amazing tutor. I had contacted Jane to help me for my A Level English exam, so that I could boost my grade for university. Jane had really helped with my confidence, which I have always struggled with and going into my exam I felt more confident in my abilities. I had got on with Jane very well, as she was extremely friendly and also patient. I would highly recommend Jane as a tutor.

Thank you so much Kathryn. You were a pleasure to work with and I saw your confidence improve ☺ good luck for your next steps ☺
Jane is a very committed and conscientious tutor who was a great inspiration to my son. She quickly identified the areas which needed improvement and made a concerted effort to help my son achieve a better grade. As Jane is a Deputy Head and assists with the exam boards she has great knowledge and a deep understanding of exactly what students need. I would highly recommend Jane as a tutor.
Had a meeting with Jane tonight very helpful and supportive ,Jane will be helping me with my English .
Jane seems to understand what my children require and we are looking forward to getting started with tutoring in September.
Following a change of English teacher at the start of Year 11 my daughter lost confidence and started to worry about her English GCSEs. We arranged for Jane to tutor her and have been more than pleased with the results. From the first lesson my daughters confidence has improved and she has regained her enthusiasm for the subject. She came out of each lesson wanting to discuss what shed just learnt and Jane equipped her with a set of skills and techniques for tackling the exams with confidence. She particularly enjoyed studying poetry, an area that she had worried about before. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jane as a tutor for English Language and Literature.
Jane was a great tutor who allowed me to surpass my target and achieve an A in my GCSE English. She was very conscientious and helpful, I would recommend her as a tutor.
Excellent inspiring tutor who has given my daughter back her confidence and enthusiasm for the subject.
