My son did not do very well in his first mock exams for English literature, after only 2 lessons with Lisa he had another mock, I am so thankful he did after the situation what then occurred with Covid-19, he came out with grade 6 GCSE. If he had of continued with his lessons and sat the exam I’m certain he would of gained an even higher grade. Thank you so much Lisa.

Lisa did some coaching sessions with my daughter during lockdown. She massively improved her confidence in English and has a lovely way of interacting with her to get her talking. I can highly recommend Lisa, her years of experience as a teacher really show.

Lisa has been having weekly sessions with my daughter ( who said she needed extra support)since the start of the school year. Although it’s only been a few months the difference in my daughter’s confidence has been fantastic to watch. I get a weekly update from Lisa too which helps to me involved in areas of focus. I have a son in the year below and I only hope she has the availability to help him should he need it.

Both of my children have a weekly English lesson with Lisa. Their progress has been incredible, not only have they exceeded their grade expectations at school they are doing better across all subjects where written language features. My daughter really lacked in confidence when she first started the sessions and she kept asking to quit, but Lisa put her at ease and altered how she taught her. This addressed the issue and her confidence has grown tenfold. Investing in Lisa expertises is a huge investment in your child’s future in my opinion.

We couldn’t recommend Lisa enough - She’s fantastic. My daughter is dyslexic and struggles at times with English. Lisa has managed to raise my daughters confidence and make her realise she can achieve. She looks forward to and enjoys her weekly lessons.

I approached Lisa to provide tuition for my son who was really struggling with his English work. His confidence was extremely low in this subject and I was afraid he would begin to disengage with his lessons altogether.

He has now had tuition with Lisa for around five months and the change in him is phenomenal. Both his confidence and knowledge around the subject have grown and he is enjoying English as a whole, for the first time in forever!!

From the beginning Lisa took the time to listen to my concerns and where I thought my son needed support. She quickly got to know him and began to really understood him and his learning style, and adapted her lessons to suit.

Lisa has an excellent rapport with my son and she really puts him at ease week in, week out.

My son states he is now happy to answer questions in class and “have a go” at a task when previously he would have sat back and panicked.

Lisa has really brought the best out of him and has been able to make him see that he is knowledgeable in this area, he does know and understand things and he can do well - it is lovely to see him clearly proud of himself when he has successfully completed a task!

Lisa researched my son’s English topics in school and linked her lessons to this also, meaning his confidence was increased further as his learning was current and relevant to what he was focusing on in school - a great bonus in my eyes!

Each week I receive feedback from Lisa on how the lesson has gone, what has been covered and any issues etc. which is always valuable.

We will most certainly be continuing with Lisa’s tuition, probably right through to year 11, and I could not recommend her enough - she has made my son grow from someone who thought he was “stupid”, into a confident young man who can now recognise his own potential.

I would highly recommend Lisa if you’re looking for a tutor for a child of secondary school age. We used Lisa across the summer to help support our son who is on the ASD spectrum with maintaining a link with his studies.

Lisa quickly built a rapport with our son and provided lessons of varying content based on his school report and that content was both engaging and sparked his interest.

Lisa is very personable with her tutee - our son told us he hugely enjoyed his time with her - and I am certain we will use her again.

My daughter has benefitted immensely from Lisa's tuition and support. The 1 to 1 guidance has really helped her to improve in strides. She feels much more able to attempt all exam questions confidently, both for the English Language and Literature. Lisa provided some valuable online resources such as revision videos and presentation guides. I would definitely  recommend Lisa to offer support for GCSE English to your son or daughter.

Lisa was an amazing GCSE tutor for my son. She was incredibly thorough and well prepared. He could be a tricky pupil for her but she worked hard to keep him engaged and used his interests as motivation. I would hesitate to recommend her!
