Rebekah grew up in Switzerland and so has been exposed to multilingualism from an early age; as a child, she spoke English at home, French at school, and started learning German at the age of seven. She is passionate about languages and convinced anyone can pick them up—with just a little time and commitment!
Rebekah went on to study French and German at Southampton University where she achieved a First.
After graduating from secondary school in Germany, Maggie attended classes at the University of Stuttgart where she studied English, French and Politics. She graduated with the first state exam (equivalent of a bachelor’s degree of honours, 2:1) in English and Politics.
"(Student) was accepted into Ardingly but unfortunately not Brighton. We believe the exams went well and that she did not present the picture they were looking for at interview stage.
Jay proved to be an outstanding Maths tutor for our daughter - he prepared her within the space of three short months for challenging school entrance exams. From the very first lesson he identified her strengths and weaknesses and she was quickly on to learning new topics which Jay knew would be potentially covered in the entrance exams Scarlett was sitting.
Jay is encouraging, knowledgeable, full of tips and alternative ways of addressing questions. He is firm on the basics and effusive and very genuine in his praise. Our daughter went from believing she was struggling in Maths to being very confident and actually finding it is one of her strongest subjects.
She looked forwards to every session, essentially working through past papers at several levels and targeting areas of difficulty, she found them fun and bounced out of them full of news on what she had learned and how intriguing the topic was.
I would without hesitation work with Jay again and highly recommend him, I am only sorry that he is not a teacher at our daughters school !!
