Feedback For Saphrina (12)
My son has only just started being tutored by Saphrina and already he has to understand the topic of organic chemistry better. Saphrina initially asked him what he wanted from the lessons and what he wanted to learn/improve on and I know she has adhered to that. Thank you Saphrina.
Saphrina, in the lessons we have had so far , has been fantastic. She has really helped me to understand and reinforce the topics we have covered. She clearly knows her stuff, is very supportive and has given me some great guidance on exam and question technique. I look forward to continuing my sessions with her.
My son only had one lesson with her but she was brilliant. That one lesson money was well spent. My son needed a push for his exam to cover one topic and she exactly did that.
Content is always explained simply and we go through exam questions
