"I can’t thank you enough for suggesting Alex as a tutor for Theo. He was so far behind expectations for the UK we were very concerned about our return for August 2020. Alex has been amazing with him and has built his confidence in maths and English brilliantly! She’s shared her plans with us each week and advised us on how to support him between sessions. He’s now secure at Year 3 work and will begin Year 4 a little bit ahead which is wonderful.
They’ve worked the past few lessons on extended writing, and today Theo finally finished his piece on Messi, his favourite footballer. Alex is intending to tweet this to Messi - much to Theo’s delight.
I was concerned at how well the online sessions would work - but I think you can see from both their smiles on the attached photo it’s gone brilliantly!"
