Gillian was very patient with our son who was losing his way in his Chemistry A-level. Gillian’s insight really gave his classroom lessons some context and he would come out of the sessions saying that he now got it. We would definitely recommend Gillian as she tailored the sessions as required by our son.

Gillian has stepped in late in the day to help my son get through his Chemistry A`level having missed a lot of school over the last 2 years due to illness. Gillian has been very understanding of my son`s needs as well as flexible in her availability which has been so helpful as a parent. My son tells me that Gillian is especially good at giving examples to explain topics, and finding different ways to improve his understanding if he doesn`t get the first explanation she gives. Gillian has helped my son to create a list of topics they will focus on together over the next 6 weeks before the exams, and so provided an individual tailored approach to support his learning.

Gillian brings extensive practical knowledge of chemistry as well as a broad understanding of the A-Level curriculum. Her advice on how to approach exam questions is invaluable. My daughter finds her very easy to work with and Gillian regularly sends follow up notes and examples.

Dr Gillian is an exceptional tutor for my daughter Emaan who is studying GCSE Biology . She has a natural ability to encourage my daughter with enthusiasm and motivation which she lost during the lockdown . Great communicator, mentor and coach . She has an ability to explain things very clearly . As a parent , Emaan has kept me up to speed on her progress and what she needs to do to improve . Emaan looks forward to her lesson every week and through the support of Gillian , Chemistry is now her favourite subject . Thank you for your support Gillian .

Gillian is a fabulous Tutor. My daughter is studying A level chemistry. One of her actual teachers is new and on a trial for teaching Chemistry, never taught A level or Gcse chemistry before. So we contacted Gillian for help and extra tutoring, she always listens to the needs of my daughter and has been an amazing tutor. She explains things clearly and precisely with great detail and depth when required. Would definitely recommend Gillian to anyone - in fact we already have but Gillian is so good, I believe she`s already fully booked!
