My Year 9 son was struggling with his English Language lessons and I was struggling to help! He was not very receptive to the idea of a tutor. However, I have been amazed at his positive and enthusiastic response to his lessons with Josh. Whilst it is only early days, I am thrilled with how well this has turned out and only wish I had organised it sooner. Josh is very approachable and has also kindly advised me with respect to English Literature, directing me to resources that will help my son with this aspect of the curriculum. Thank you Josh!
