"My time with Amy was incredibly helpful in aiding me in my Politics A level, I started with her last year and by my mock in January I had improved by two grades and in the paper she was especially helping me with I was at an A*. Amy was a particularly good tutor as she adjusted session topics based on my strengths and weaknesses. She also gave me regular work to do so that I continued in my studies when we weren't in lesson time."
