"In three short weeks of working with Rachel over Zoom my 3-and-a-half-year-old daughter grew in confidence and learned to love rhyming and phonics. She passed the 4+ at our preferred school and we're over the moon! Holding a little one’s attention over Zoom is not an easy feat but Rachel was a real professional- she put in a lot of effort before each session to make sure I had printed alternatives of exercises and gave me feedback after each session. We thoroughly recommend Rachel! "
