We collect references for all of our tutors when they join. Not all referees agree to have their reference publically listed, but when they do we show them here.
Davina taught Biology at Forest School, a large London Independent School, during the time that I was Head of Science. She was very popular amongst the pupils, who were very appreciative of her excellent teaching style. She always encouraged her pupils to perform to the best of their ability and the results of her sets were very good. She left to start a family but on my request returned to cover some lessons when the Head of Biology was absent. It is indicative of her teaching ability that the pupils were extremely happy to see her return.
