"Claire was an extraordinary tutor. My daughter had a few sesssions before her GCSEs to cover areas she found tricky and she always came away singing and bright and optimistic. She said she was the best tutor she has ever had. She gained a 9 for her Maths and an A* for further maths and look forward to using her again for Maths A Level."
