"Rosie has been an exceptional tutor to our now 11yr-old for a number of years. Initially employed simply to stop our child from getting bored and frustrated at undemanding school work, Rosie immediately set about providing stimulating work and tutorials which not only engaged their interests and played to their strengths, but also encouraged them to develop their confidence in areas in which they felt less able. Consequently, Rosie has guided our child successfully through the turtuous and rather alien 11+ process, despite that not being part of the original plan! Prompt, polite, professional and properly inspirational, we feel lucky to have had her as a tutor."
