Feedback For Amanda (7)
I met Amanda weekly for an hour for 8 months until the pressure of work forced me to put French on hold. As a 45 year old with a D grade at GCSE french 30 years ago I was a little apprehensive but determined to improve my French so I could at least get by on holiday in France. Amanda was great. Engaging, organised, and fun, She stretched me little by little each week. My French steadily improved and I looked forward to the sessions each week. I would warmly recommend her to all.
Amanda has been helping our daughter with preparations for her French GCSE for the past year. She has been truly excellent. Through Amandas efforts we have seen our daughters language skills come on leaps and bounds. This had not only been in her technical knowledge but also in her confidence and enjoyment. Amanda has always been patient and encouraging, and flexible in her approach. Thank you!
Amanda tutored our daughter for her GCSE French exam, as she was struggling and lacking in confidence. Amanda was very friendly, enthusiastic and flexible with session times. She used a variety of resources to improve our daughter`s grasp of the language and to increase her confidence. Grade 7 (A) was achieved in the exams, so we are very pleased. Thank you Amanda.
Amanda tutored my Son in German for his GCSEs. My sons school were pushing for him to drop German as a GCSE as they didnt think he would pass. With Amandas excellent tutoring my Son achieved a grade 5 in his German GCSE which was the highest mark he could achieve as he was doing the lower paper. Amanda encouraged my son all of the way and I really dont think he would have achieved anywhere near a grade 5 without Amandas help and support. Amanda is an excellent tutor and I would highly recommend her. I cant thank her enough for helping my Son to achieve a grade 5 in German.
Amanda is an amazing tutor. Smart, patient, funny with a terrific grasp of the French language. I thought trying to learn conversational French after a 50 year gap from basic O level mediocrity would be a slog. It is not. She makes our sessions really interesting, although just like 50 years ago .. I hate homework!
Amanda has been great so far. She`s helped me pick up French quickly and always makes the sessions enjoyable. I look forward to learning more from her.
Very good tutor, very impressive so far
