Dear Antony Bray
Thank you very much for organising the Easter MPW AS Biology Edexcel revision course. Juliet found Salma Siddiqui an excellent teacher, explaining scientific details clearly and concisely. She feels that she was given a really good grounding in the key areas and coached in exam technique which has helped improve her confidence. She plans to take the A level biology revision week next year. Many thanks.

Being tutored by Miss Siddiqui was the best decision I made to help me improve my A level biology grade. She has a very positive attitude and was always determined to help me understand any topics I was not clear about. The persistent repetition of topics was most important in order to ingrain the knowledge that is sorely required in biology in order to do well. This consisted of: question and answer sessions, going through exam questions, discussing real life scenarios and most importantly going through Miss Siddiqui notes which were an invaluable resource to me.
The lessons were very concise and Miss Siddiqui ensured that my exam technique was spot on; her years of experience really helped when tackling questions I was not sure how to answer. Her lessons helped me feel more confident about biology and when by the time I sat the last exam I felt fully prepared than years of the past.
I would not hesitate to recommend Miss Siddiqui as she is a great tutor.

Dear Salma,
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping Feena achieve such a wonderful result in her Biology A Level. We have no doubt that it was down to your teaching that she pulled herself up from a predicted low grade C to a high B.
Take good care and many thanks again,
