    Helen is a very passionate English teacher. She taught my son as a home schooled due to ill health. We had peace of mind as she is very thorough and communicates clearly what is expected. She encouraged and motivated our son who moved from Grade 5 to 8 GCSE, his confidence increased two fold. She also has a lovely sense of humour, invaluable ! Rated highly for: communication, work quality, professionalism

    Aryan was home schooled tuition for GCSEs and made progress and gained a lot of confidence. He was struggling at school Due to health issues and the provisions the school gave him. Helen saw him 2hrs a week and it really helped build his confidence and achieved above target grades, from 4 to 6, in his GCSEs. Rated highly for: communication, professionalism, work quality
