Tutors Response :
Thank you very much for your kind comments. Logan is very enthusiastic and with the increased confidence that I am seeing, I am sure he will achieve his goals. (Brief: to work on spelling and increase vocabulary)
Kathleen has been working for Martin for a couple of years now. We have seen a vast improvement in Martin in terms of academically and maturity, which we credit to Kathleen.
She is a calm and empathetic teacher which we would recommend.
Kathleen is friendly and patient, she has a lovely manner which put my daughter at ease straight away. She used different mathematical methods to get the best out of my daughter`s learning and also focused on building confidence. My daughter found the sessions enjoyable and I would recommend Kathleen as a maths tutor.
