“Our children have greatly benefited and enjoyed spending time with Lesley, it has never been seen as tutoring, more development time that has produced great results both personally and academically. Lesley is warm, ingenious and infectious which has resulted in our son excelling in one of his weaker subjects and moving proudly up to top set. We have made countless recommendations to other parents over the last few years”
Sarah - Parent:
Lesley has tutored both of my boys through the years leading up to GCSE English Language and Literature. She was able to quickly identify their weaknesses and work to support those to make great improvements. The learning was very targeted and fun, she managed to engage with them both about the things they enjoyed so they actually liked spending the time with her. Lesley also went above and beyond and provided additional study resources for them, that weren't available on line but that she put together. Both boys improved by at least 2 grades from their mocks to their exams, all in about 6 months. My eldest son went from dreading English to telling me just before the GCSE exams that other than PE, English was now his favourite subject. Between them both having a combination of ADHD, dyslexia, and short term memory processing issues she did an incredible job.
Lesley is so much fun. I can be myself with her and be a bit cheeky at times but she always manages to get me back on track and more focussed in a firm but nice way. She has taken the time to get to know me so that when she teaches me she can use things that she knows to help the learning more relevant to my personality. I have felt that I have improved a lot over the past couple of years and that when the work seems quite overwhelming Lesley has broken it down into manageable tasks for me.
Rina - Parent:
From the moment we met Lesley we knew straight away she was going to be the right tutor for Karina. They both got on really well. Lesley’s standard of teaching was excellent and just as important for us was her gentle and inspiring method of teaching. I only wish we had met earlier!
Lesley made tutoring fun because she allowed me to be cheeky and sarcastic with her whilst making sure I stayed focused on my work. She helped me to feel more confident in my work too. I passed both my exams which I know I wouldn’t have done without her help. She isn’t just a tutor, she becomes your friend.
