I contacted Gemma regarding helping my 6 year old son with his phonics and sounds and so glad I did. I cannot recommend Gemma highly enough she plans well for the lesson and takes into account what learning needs and interests my son has.

My grades and ability to do English has shot up with her help. I really would recommend her to anyone. She is engaging, kind and supportive. Her lessons are thourough and enjoyable. Thank you, Gemma!

Gemma is an amazing tutor !! I would highly recommend her .
I count myself very fortunate to have found such a dedicated, well organised professional to tutor my daughter. We both warmed to Gemma instantly and look forward to her weekly sessions .
We have had other tutors in the past but Gemma is the best by far.
Gemma has tutored my daughter for over a year and a half , she always plans work in advance but is more than happy to help with homework my daughter is struggling with. I can definitely see an improvement with my daughters overall confidence and her grades have improved thanks to Gemma.
Gemma is happy, calm ,confident, fun, and very approachable which is ideal for a child struggling with English .
Anyone who is lucky enough to have Gemma as a tutor is truly fortunate.
