Feedback For Marian (12)
Marian is very friendly and calm which is essential when tutoring children. My son finds her a positive person who is very encouraging.
Marian helped me so much in being able to take a more analytical and evaluative approach towards the text of Hamlet, allowing me to develop my A Level English Literature essays, especially in being able to understand context points better.
Thank you for your help and support. This gave Louise much needed confidence and guidance and she passed the part of the course with a higher grade than her previous grades!!
My daughter is in year 11 and predicted to do well in most of her GCSE subjects but was having problems with English exams that seemed to stem from a lack of confidence and doubts about what was required in creative writing papers. She has been going to weekly lessons with Marian for about 6 weeks.
Since starting the private tuition there has been a transformation in her confidence and understanding of how to approach creative writing in exams. She says that Marian has been fantastic in the way she listened carefully to what the problems were and has focused on solving them. Marian explains things clearly in terms that made sense to her. She also found Marians choice of homework and her feedback on it extremely helpful in allowing her to understand how to improve her work.
Overall, we are very happy with the quality and value for money of the tuition we have received.
Marian is very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. In the short time I`ve visited her my confidence has grown. I would highly recommend her for tuition.
GCSE English Language grade B achieved - many thanks Marian : )
My Daughter has been attending sessions with Marion for the last few weeks. I have seen a change in her attitude and confidence levels and she already seems less phased by the subject.
Marion is obviously a knowledgeable and very experienced tutor.
My daughter had just few lessons but already I can see the difference Great
I highly recommend Marian and am delighted that we found her. Marian provided just the right level of support and confidence building needed by my daughter when preparing to resit GCSE English Language (to upgrade a C to a B for a university application) - we`re hopeful of a good result, many thanks Marian!
I would like to thank Miss Marian for helping me with my English Skills. She is absolutely an amazing teacher ,my writing has improved from 6.5 to 7.5 in less than a month I`m really grateful for her , she also helped me with my speaking . Because of her support and patience I got the score I need in a very short period of time :)
My daughter had tuition from Marian for A2 English Lit. She found that she was extremely thorough in ensuring knowledge of the text, a great support & restored her confidence. Brilliant! Would highly recommend.
Marian is an excellent tutor. My son learned a lot from her and enjoyed her tutorials (which is unusual for him).
