Recent testimonials:

"I asked my daughter what she thought of Sarah and she was very positive about her. We used Sarah's tuition mostly to help on English, as she was struggling a bit with comprehension, and also to help her with exam technique. My daughter told me that Sarah was very funny in teaching, which she loved and that she gave her really great tips on how to tackle exam questions.

We did not use Sarah for the math part, as my daughter was already attending Mathnesium near our house, so I cannot comment on this. But it seems that Sarah's style really suited her. She was also very good at sending mock exam papers, correcting them promptly and going through them in detail with her, in a way that was apparently very helpful to her. Her monthly comments were very helpful to me too."
