TESTIMONIALS

Very friendly, professional and an excellent tutor.

Very friendly, professional and an excellent tutor. Charlotte responded quickly to our request for tutoring, she worked very well with my son and in a very short time, my son’s confidence has improved dramatically, along with his test results. We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience. Many thanks!

Charlotte was great.

Charlotte was great, really helped my daughter in the run-up to her GCSE English exams. Under the new numbers, her support pulled her from around a 5 and 6 in Language and LIterature mocks, to an eventual 7 and 9. But more importantly she clicked with Charlotte straight away and regained some lost confidence.

Fabulous Mrs Watson

Fabulous Mrs Watson has really inspired my 10 year old who is very creative but always hated sitting still and writing. The difference in his level of achievement, enjoyment and confidence is amazing. He has enjoyed every lesson even on Sunday evenings and has even been enthusiastic about homework. Highly recommended.

Mrs Gordon, Wallington

Charlotte is a very pleasant and knowledgeable tutor

Charlotte is a very pleasant and knowledgeable tutor who has accurately assessed my daughter’s specific needs. Her tutoring has increased my daughter’s depth of understanding and skill level in preparation for her English GCSE exams. My daughter’s confidence and knowledge has improved and she enjoys the hourly sessions; we would both highly recommend.

Charlotte helped both of my sons achieve their first choice school

Charlotte helped both of my sons achieve their first choice school with her support of 11+ English. She made the lessons fun, varied and targeted to each of their specific needs. The exam tips and positivity proved invaluable in what seemed like an unachievable goal at certain times.

Charlotte makes learning meaningful and relevant

Charlotte makes learning meaningful and relevant. My son is motivated to do his work for her without any prompting because she has shown him why it’s important and how it will benefit him.

Charlotte is a fantastic tutor

Charlotte is a fantastic tutor who created a strong rapport with my son from day one. She is brilliant at praising what is done well and positively encouraging improvement. She really helped my son improve his creative writing which he was struggling with. He is a typical 9 year old boy who would rather play on the Xbox than think about story mountains but after a few months of tutoring he was regularly writing stories marked A1 at school and went on to secure an academic scholarship at Whitgift.’

Top grade in his final English exam

I would like to thank you so much for all the effort & private tutoring you did for our son. His top grade in his final English exam is no small thanks to your wonderful coaching & direction.

He is now in the top English stream at his new senior school.

D Chapman, Kingswood

 

Encouragement and confidence

Dear Charlotte,

Thank you so much for all the encouragement and confidence you have given my daughter over the last few months, in preparation for her 11+ examinations.

She has learnt to be passionate about English and has eagerly looked forward to all her sessions with you…you are her favourite teacher!

Best wishes,

K, Cheam

Preparation to his GCSE

We had two 2-hr sessions with Charlotte during half term break, and our son found them to be very useful and boosted his confidence in preparation to his GCSE mock tests this week. Not only was she able to quickly identify the gaps but she also knew how best to fill them effectively. She is experienced in tutoring and very responsive to communicate to. We have been very pleased so far and look forward to have more sessions when she’s available in the coming months.

K Dewi, Wallington
