"Isabel was a wonderful tutor, she was quick to find the places where my son was weak and work on them. She stretched and encouraged him and he went on to be invited to attend scholarship papers at a leading school. We will certainly look to Isabel when GCSE time comes for help. I could not recommend her highly enough."
