We can’t recommend Maud highly enough. Not only did she help our son get into his first choice of school she also helped him increase his predicted GCSE English/Literature grades from 7’s to 9’s. And even though maths and the sciences are his favourite subjects he thoroughly enjoyed working with Maud and completely trusted in her methods as to how best tackle exam questions. We can’t thank Maud enough for all her support.
