"This Thursday is (student)'s last lesson with you before his test on Wednesday 24th, so I would like to tell you how much your lessons were important for him. He had an amazing improvement in text comprehension, so now he is not afraid of it anymore. And his writing improved a lot as well. The work you have developed with him for the last (almost) 6 months was excellent and made all the difference. He is at another level as a student, thanks to your help.
Thank you very much for your dedication and hard work. We do not know yet the result of the interview, but anyway the work you have done together will be with him for the next school years. I’m copying Mike to thank him as well and to say that I’m happy for him to use it as a review at the website, if he would like to. Fingers crossed, I will let you know about the result at St Paul's as soon as I receive it."
