"We came to the tutoring process a little later than most, and with some reservations. My son lacked confidence and was very shy and unsure of himself. Amazingly, Rosie's passion, dedication and professionalism have worked wonders in a relatively short space of time. The lessons are always well prepared with interesting & varied content. They are always perfectly targeted to assess ability in a core topic and identify areas that need further focus. Rosie is always punctual, yet flexible if occasions require. She is engaging and has taken both my son's personality, and my feedback or concerns, into account when teaching. She gives plenty of positive feedback, which has visibly fuelled his enthusiasm: once or twice he has actually jumped up from his seat to dance around the room with happiness when he achieved a perfect score in a maths test. I would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend Rosie to other parents, and count our family lucky that we have her to help us through preparation for the 11+, which frankly, can be a very pressurised and stressful time for children. Thanks must also go to Lawrence Drew, whose recommendation of Rosie as the right person for our family, could not have been more perfect."
