Feedback For Lisa (2)
Lisa is really impressive. She engaged my son instantly. He has been struggling with school and she made an excellent start at helping him explore barriers to learning. Unfortunately we only managed two meetings due to the lockdown. We certainly plan to resume lessons once face to face meetings are possible again.
Lisa is an amazing tutor - I greatly admire her professionalism. She is very focused, organised and efficient. She has been able to quickly establish fantastic rapport with every member of our family. Lisa is always enthusiastic, cheerful as well as encouraging and with a real passion for her subject. She has great patience too. I would like to mention that my son has additional needs and the fact that Lisa also provides a coaching service for life skills has been a truly useful asset. She so obviously enjoys teaching and in the lessons we have had so far Lisa has really boosted my son`s confidence. She is providing him with the right support in his preparation for the English GCSEs which, I am sure, will lead to higher final grades. Lisa has been very successful in motivating my son and he always looks forward to their weekly sessions. She is perfect for our needs in every respect. In a nutshell, Lisa is a crown jewel of a tutor!
