thankyou for your feedback Abby. I am sorry I cannot continue to help you prepare for your exams because of the virus situation, but I do hope they give you a good grade. You have worked so hard!
Patient, reliable and could at explaining.
Janet has helped my daughter enormously with her GSCE^S. She is very patient and my daughter enjoys time spent.
My daughter is currently studying with Janet. She feels at ease with her. She is very patient & explains things well, which she understands better than in her class at school.
An extremely calm, clear and morale-boosting approach.
We have found Janet to be very professional. She arrives at an agreed time and is appropriately prepared for the one hour tuition with our daughter. We had a discussion prior to tuitions commencing in respect of what we hoped our daughter would achieve and the expected outcomes. Janet has taken this on board and works at our daughter`s pace and level of understanding.
Janet is an excellent tutor. She has really helped my daughter with her maths. She is very professional and very caring. She always gives us a warm welcome into her home. I highly recommended Janet. She has fabulous teaching skills and an abundance of patience. Thank you
Janet was an outstanding tutor to my daughter when she helped her with her QTS Maths. She was always on time and definitely built my daughter`s confidence up in maths. She explained using methods that she could understand and taught her ways to do mathematical questions which she could remember, and made sure she focused on key areas my daughter was struggling with. My daughter is extremely grateful to her for all her help that she had given her to pass her QTS Maths, which she managed to pass first time, and we would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a maths tutor.
Although it is early days, Janet arrives prompt, stays more than the agreed time, is polite and friendly, gets down to working straight way so doesn`t waste any time, and my daughter is really pleased with the way she is teaching her. We are very satisfied with our choice of tutor.
