"Holly is a very organized, calm, thoughtful, encouraging and understanding tutor. Our son has been very happy with Holly and he very much looks forward to meeting Holly online each week. Holly has worked hard at getting to know our son which is often difficult on an online platform. Holly has worked excellently at encouraging him and improving his confidence. This is exactly what we were looking for and I am tremendously pleased to say that our expectations have been met. He produced a lovely piece of creative writing based on his personal likes and we were all very impressed. Thank you, Holly."
