Parent of GCSE Spanish student, London

"Vicky’s role was to support our son to improve his writing/answering skills in the lead up to his GCSEs. In particular, he needed to identify the best way to demonstrate his comprehension and structure answers in a more effective way. Vicky concentrated on content, structure and grammar… plus gave him some last minute hints and tips to help him gain some crucial marks in the exams.

The aim was to achieve a grade B in both exams in August 2018.

Vicky was enthusiastic, yet patient and encouraging. She quickly identified his weaker areas and supported him with good questioning and ideas to help him tackle these head on…. With the emphasis on him to find the solutions.
Our son felt more confident about his ability to answer the longer, more complex questions, as he was able to plan his answers better after support. He became less concerned about his weak areas (eg spelling) and focused on achieving a better overall result.

Unfortunately, we did not see Vicky as much as we originally hoped (holidays and the fact that the exams were so early in the exam timetable!), however, the times we had were constructive and useful.

Vicky was flexible, punctual and friendly and it was a pleasure to work with her. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Mother of GCSE English Student, SW London

"Victoria has been an exceptional help to my son in his preparation for 11+ exams this year. Victoria has focused primarily on English, as this was something both she and I felt needed attention -- she is excellent at identifying areas that need attention and understanding the type of learner my son is. Victoria has helped with my son's exam technique (something I doubt he has done much of in his state primary school) and suggested ways to encourage my son to self-check his work and self-monitor progress. As a result, my son has grown in confidence and become more focused, and a number of people have acknowledged his progress. Most importantly, Victoria has given my son a genuine love of English, and particularly creative writing. Victoria is always flexible, on time and lovely to have in my home. I would not hesitate to highly recommend her, or indeed to approach her agency for her help with my other children when that time comes."
