"I just want to share how brilliant Sim has been, patient, supportive, and a kind face to my daughter who struggles academically. He has encouraged her, helped her with organisation, planning and prioritisation, and delivered her learning in small sizeable chunks she can manage with. Thank you for enabling us to have Sim, and who knows there maybe a need for him to return with another one of our children."
