Tell me about some of your current students.
Ali (7 years old)
Ali is dyslexic and struggling with numeracy and literacy. Kinesthetic learning and creative writing proved to be the best tools for getting Ali to enjoy his studies and grow in confidence. He is now top in his class for Maths and has been able to re-join his peers for English lessons.

Janey (15 years old)
Janey is now beginning year 11 and is aiming for an A* in her English GCSE. When we began in year 10 she was on a C but concluded the year with an A. She has discovered a flair for creative writing and poetry analysis.

Ozge (18 years old)
Ozge was wavering between B and C grades at the beginning of A2 and struggling with essay construction in particular. We soon boosted her coursework to an A* and Ozge was thrilled to gain an A grade in her English A level this summer.

Monica (35 years old)
Monica has lived in the UK for eight years but was struggling to communicate as fluidly as she would like in professional situations. We have spent the past year enjoying exploring the highly idiomatic nature of the English language, refining her writing style and broadening her vocabulary.
Do you have a personal message for students?
One to one tutoring is a wonderful way to gain confidence in your studies and make swift academic progress. I find that an informal and fun approach is the best way to get engaged with the work and find enjoyment in it.
