We can’t thank you enough for your patience and persistence with both Dan and Meg over the years. Your flexibility. help and encouragement played a major part in them achieving results they are proud of. This coupled with also being a Spurs supporter, what more could they ask for! Cuddles with Blodri (dog) will also be sadly missed too!

You are always weel versed with all the up to date exam board requirements and practice papers and you go above and beyond with Skype lessons if required.

We can’t recommend highly enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Nina and Tom 2017

 

We sought Sue’s assistance in January after our son received his mock GCSE results predicting C grades in both English Language and Literature with a warning of possible failure. Sue had previously tutored our elder son so we knew that she was an excellent tutor whose help and support could also improve Matt’s grades. Her detailed knowledge of the exam requirements and constructive teaching methods resulted in Matt achieving A grades for both English exams. In addition, we are sure the substantial improvements Matt made in his ability to write clearly contributed to him obtaining A/A* in all his written papers for other subjects. Thanks Sue, we highly recommend you! Jackie 2014

‘My son started English tuition with Sue from last September when he was preparing 13+ Exam.  After just couple lessons, I was amazed as my son said that he’s learned more than what he did in a school term in his school. With Sue’s help, luckily my son passed exam and has been offered a place in a grammar school. I would highly recommend Sue to anyone seeking an English tutor’. Hui 2013

‘ Sue Smith has been our daughter’s English language tutor for over 6 months and we have seen substantial improvement in Anastasia’s grades and confidence in the subject. Sue has a tremendous talent to teach very complex aspects of English in  easy and clear ways helping children with fast improvements.We also liked the teaching method (Skype or face to face) that helped when we had conflicting schedules in a busy family life…We have recommended Sue to our friends and would highly recommend to others.’ Michael 2013

Sue has provided English Language and Literature tuition to my son in year 11 since October 2012 and we have been delighted with the progress he has made and the renewed confidence and interest he has shown in these subjects during this time.
Her advice and guidance to him for his controlled assessments provided a structure and methodology which enabled him to achieve excellent marks. In addition the confidence he gained during their discussions and exercises on set texts for his examinations was invaluable and in January much to his surprise and delight  he achieved a high grade A for English Language.’ Teresa 2013

I was delighted with the way in which Sue prepared my son to take GCSE English Language and Literature. She conveyed to him what the examiners were looking for very effectively, and gave him useful feedback on his written work. Her help and support went a long way in helping him achieve his two A* grades!  I would highly recommend Sue.’  Joan 2009

‘I bravely (rashly!) decided to tackle an MA course in History as a mature student. My previous essay writing experience was very limited and Sue helped me by giving me much needed coaching on layout and structure. She quickly established my needs, provided clear and relevant advice and got me back on track at a crucial time.’  Ex CFO of major company 2011

’I would highly recommend Sue to anyone seeking a tutor. She taught English Literature and Language to my son for two years leading up to his GCSE exams. We were so pleased with the grades he achieved – beyond our expectations. Sue managed to get the best from my son, working with his strengths and weaknesses and he enjoyed and very much appreciated the lessons.’’ Caroline 2010

“Sue has tutored both my sons in English to prepare them for their GCSE language and literature exams. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Sue is an excellent teacher who motivates her students and gets the very best from them. Her exam preparation is very exact and therefore effective. My sons both achieved top results which exceeded their predicted grades. Many thanks, Sue!” Clare 2010

Sue has been tutoring my children for the past three years and they cannot praise her enough. The lessons have given them confidence and my daughter says that Sue is an inspiration. My daughter achieved Grade A for English and French at GCSE  and I am sure that Sue helped her to improve her grades in both subjects. She has continued to see Sue for her English Literature A Level and I am sure that she chose this subject because of the input that Sue gave her at GCSE.

Sue always prepares well for her lessons and allows students to email her if they experience any problems or if they want her to check coursework/essays.We would thoroughly recommend Sue as a tutor to help your son/ daughter with their English or French at GCSE and A Level. Janet N 2011
