"We were thrilled with Leah, she was amazing with her math, which helped engage Nancy (who had never seen math as fun). She then worked with Nancy with storytelling. The helped her form a brilliant piece of persuasive writing starting a class campaign for a school hamster. Always on time with well thought out lessons. Thank you Leah for really turning things around for Nancy. We hope to work with Leah in the future."

Mother of Year 4 student, South East London

"Leah quickly developed a strong yet authoritative bond with my daughter. Her sessions were well thought out and she kept them fast paced to maintain the attention of a 5 year old yet thoughtful enough so that my daughter really learnt from them. The results were pretty immediate with my daughter going from under achieving to over in the space of a term. We really liked Leah and would highly recommend her."
