Feedback For Denise (2)
This tutor is helping my 7year old with his handwriting and other issues related to possible dyspraxia. Her help has made a noticeable difference already (after half a term). My son finds her lessons so much fun that he is motivated to do lots of practice between sessions without prompting from me. She is clearly extremely competent and engaging as a tutor. We are grateful to have found her.
Tutors Response :
Thank you for your kind words. I always feel that each child deserves a personalised service that suits their needs - regardless of levels and school curriculum.
Have just started sessions with this tutor for our 7 year old. So far have been enormously impressed. Our son concentrates for a full hour session which is remarkable to us. She is professional in terms of comprehensive feedback to us, and has also provided an `at home` folder to keep work in, along with set homework assignments. No complaints at all so far. One point to note is she may be slightly more expensive than other primary tutors on this site, but we selected her for her notable experience and have found, as in many areas of life, you get what you pay for!
