Feedback For Sarah (16)
Sarah is brilliant. Shes engaging and fun. My daughter loves her lessons and is really starting to gain confidence in her ability.
Sarah is fabulous. I dont know how she does it but my son, who has some dyslexia and also hates school, comes out of Sarahs English lesson bouncing and confident and full of the work they have studied together. He even sat me down and read his work to me after last Fridays lesson. He was so proud. Thanks so much Sarah
Sarah is tutoring out daughter for her A levels. We feel so lucky to have found her. She is professional and enthusiastic and has really taken on board what Eve needs. Her resources are excellent and most importantly Eve regards Sarah very highly , wishing her school teachers were as passionate and engaging
Sarah has been tutoring my daughter online for a few months now. My daughter has always been a reluctant reader and writer, however, she has grown in confidence with her English throughout this time, and has even started reading a book!
Sarah has been a lifesaver to get my daughter refocussed on her Language A level during the pandemic when remote teaching via college has been little and she has found it difficult to engage remotely. Sarah is very personable and engages well identifying topics that have been previously missed with prior education so that it is all beginning to click now! So pleased to have found her and thoroughly recommend.
Sarah really connected with my son and was a huge support to me with respect to finding the right school for my son. He is now settled and very happy.

Sarah has been tutoring my son for nearly 2 months and his progress in English has been fantastic. Sarah has given him so much confidence going forward with his GCSE`s she is patient and caring and my son always looks forward to his lessons.
My son has had a few sessions with Sarah now and always enjoys them. At the end of each session he feels much more confident and proud of what hes achieved. Sarah is very personable and really understands how to get the best out of my son
Sarah is excellent. Very friendly, warm and encouraging.
Sarah has been great, giving our daughter confidence and helping her understand the material in a clear and inspiring way.
Sarah worked well with my daughter , preparing her for her retake . My daughter enjoyed the sessions and came away with increased confidence and a drive to do well , a very positive experience .
Sarah is an amazing find. She has a very positive, encouraging approach. My daughter was shy and lacked self belief, the difference in just 3 sessions is stunning. Cant thank her enough!
Sarah is a lovely lady and great tutor. Really engages with my son and makes learning interesting.
My son is embarking on the two year GCSE course and needed additional tuition and guidance.
Sarah has been very flexible with timings of lessons, and my son thoroughly enjoys his time with her. Sarah quickly picked up on our son`s areas of weakness, worked on them in the lesson and set appropriate homework.
We intend to continue with Sarah`s lessons indefinitely, and would highly recommend her.
Sarah has been a great help in encouraging my son to enjoy his English lessons. The lessons are fun, stimulating and challenging and he is now engaged, gaining in confidence and enjoying the subject. Excellent communication skills. Highly recommend.
