"Ally quickly got to the heart of the matter - creative writing - so the bulk of her work was in this area.
Ally took our son from a standing start to a fluent essay writer, providing guidance on types of writing, structure and planning. She was kind flexible and patient when dealing with a some time less than enthusiastic student.
We were delighted when our son was offered a place at MCS which we have taken up. Without Ally this may not have happened."
