"Meredith helped our son prepare for his 7+ entrance exams to a few competitive schools in South West London. The focus was on creative writing and reading comprehension along with some work in Maths and interview prep. Meredith is a brilliant teacher who prepares very hard for every class and gets the best out of a child through engaging classes and excellent feedback that she gives for the homework she sets. She works not just with the child but also with the parents by taking any feedback from them very seriously and sets her lesson plans and goals around any gaps in learning. We’ll recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone considering getting extra help with their child’s work."
