What My Students Say:
(Casual Learner English) I really enjoyed the classes with Elizabeth. Adult learning requires a different approach and she managed to deliver very good contents in an engaging manner. She is professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend Elizabeth.
I contacted Elizabeth because I needed help to improve my written English. Elizabeth is very professional, she was able to identify my mistakes and areas to improve since the first session. She is very friendly and always goes an extra mile to help me by providing supporting material or doing phonetics exercises. I highly recommend Elizabeth for anyone looking for a serious and professional tutor.
(GCSE English) Elizabeth is a friendly, patient and supportive tutor. The thought of exams, particularly English really worried me. Elizabeth worked with me to explain things and really helped to build my confidence. I have just received my GCSE results and got a C. Thank you Elizabeth for all of your advice, help and support.
Elizabeth has been tutoring me for almost eight months, and my grades have improved massively! I was an average student achieving grade fives (C’s) in my exams, and now I am achieving nines (A**’s). She is a truly amazing tutor!
What Parents Say:
(GCSE English) I have sat in on a couple of Elizabeth’s English sessions with my 14 year old daughter and I find Elizabeth’s approach, manner and the very special way in which she delivers information and feedback to my daughter, really quite refreshing and both Elizabeth and my daughter get on really well and I feel my daughter is learning something new every week. I would highly recommend Elizabeth as an English language tutor without hesitation.
Very quick and efficient response to initial enquiry. Friendly, easy to communicate with and very helpful. Would definitely recommend to others. Just a quick update: My son received GCSE English tuition from Elizabeth after attaining a D grade twice. On his next attempt he achieved the C grade he needed. My son actually said “I wish Elizabeth had taught me English in school as i would have understood what i needed to learn to get the C in the first place”. My son and I highly recommend Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was very responsive to my initial enquiry which was very much appreciated as I needed to arrange a tutor for my twins who have different needs for their forthcoming English GCSE’s. Elizabeth has quickly assessed how best to address those different needs and engaged with my children in a positive and supportive way. They have both said that she has helped them improve already, which only after 4 sessions is very promising.
I can’t thank You enough for helping Aaron. Only having had a few lessons so far I feel he has gained confidence and understanding to hopefully achieve the grade he needs for his GCSEs and to even better it. Thank you,
(Secondary English) Elizabeth has tailored the lessons to my daughters needs and quickly identified her strengths and weaknesses. Already after only 3 weeks my daughter has already learnt some valuable and transferable skills which she can use not only in the lessons but outside in school and in general day to day life. She has even taught her grandparents a technique that not even they knew existed. I would not have any hesitations in recommending Elizabeth for other students that have specific needs or learning opportunities as to date my daughter has settled well and is enjoying every lesson.
Elizabeth is a very friendly lady. My 14 year old daughter has really enjoyed her lessons as Elizabeth is very engaging and makes the lessons fun.
(Secondary English) Elizabeth has made a big difference to my daughter’s confidence in her abilities. She has gone back to basics with her and given her great strategies to help with spelling and comprehension. Her school reports reflect her improvements in these areas and we are delighted. I pass on any other feedback to Elizabeth from her school teachers which she immediately begins to incorporate into her lessons with my daughter. She is friendly and approachable in her methods so my daughter feels completely at ease. I have already recommended her to my friends who have children struggling with English and I will continue to recommend her in the future.
Elizabeth is a very kind and patient teacher. My daughter is really enjoying her sessions with her and we’re seeing the benefits.
Elizabeth tutored my son for a short time after he initially failed his English GCSE. She gave him confidence through her patience and calm manner. However following a remark my son passed and consequently no longer required her services. I would however recommend her to anyone requiring help in this area.
My son considers Elizabeth to be one of the best tutors he’s had. His grades have improved and so has his love for English. I’m happy to have Elizabeth as my son’s tutor.
My daughter Stacey really likes Elizabeth as her tutor. According to Stacey, Elizabeth makes her to understand what is needed to know and she explains everything really well. Stacey will resit her English Language GCSE exam in the beginning of November, and I am confident that Elizabeth’s teaching is giving her a great booster.
Elizabeth has been brilliant with my daughter Gabriella. She prepares well and explains things very clearly and her sessions are enjoyable. With more application and help Gabriella has greatly improved her grades in GCSE English to a 6. I highly recommend Elizabeth.
Excellent teacher. We are pleased. I recommend her highly.
Elizabeth is an extremely knowledgeable, thorough, supportive AND fun tutor!! We were incredibly lucky to find her. Elizabeth is currently supporting my 16yr old son through his GCSE English, and we plan to keep hold of her for A levels!!! Thank you Elizabeth
Very lovely, helpful and friendly – my son is finding her tuition incredibly valuable – highly recommended
So far so good my son didn’t want to go ! But came out very happy and Quite happy to go next week . So all is good thank you Elizabeth .
(GCSE English) Elizabeth has done wonders in tutoring my son who has come on leaps and bounds with his English. My son finds her extremely easy to get on with and very patient. She always makes it extremely clear as to what is expected of him either in lessons or by way of homework and has been extremely encouraging throughout. He actually enjoys English now and is so much more confident. A big thank you!
(GCSE English) Elizabeth was a great help with our daughter. She had to retake her GCSE English Lang in November but due to timetable clashes at her school she could not attend the retake lessons in the sixth form. Luckily for us we were able to book a series of lessons (multiple ones each week) over a number of weeks before the exam. Our daughter found Elizabeth an excellent teacher because she explained how to answer the exams questions in a way that she understood, which the school had failed to do over two years. Our daughter is very strong on the Maths front and I think the quote from her ‘Elizabeth has taught me the formula to answer the questions’ says it all. The formula being to approach English with inquisitiveness and thr…
