"Nicola was an excellent tutor for my year 6 daughter. She provided lessons in Maths and English both in our home and remotely, especially useful during the Covid 19 lockdown. My daughter enjoyed the lessons, and really developed in both areas from them. Nicola provides useful feedback and was always happy to discuss any education related questions."
Year 6, August 2020
"Nicola has provided very thoughtful, thorough Maths tuition for our son in year 6. She has really been creative in the sessions, thinking of personally tailored ways to engage his interest. She has a kind manner and has helped to build his confidence as well as his ability. For a child who thought he couldn't stand Maths, I've been amazed by how much he has enjoyed his lessons. The online lessons have worked brilliantly too."
Year 6, July 2020
"Nicola has provided excellent maths tuition to our daughter who is in year 8 and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking about having tuition for their child . She has provided wonderful support and we have seen our daughter’s progress with her maths improve dramatically since starting tuition with Nicola; she has really made a big difference and our daughter’s confidence with her maths is far greater than before. We moved from face to face tuition to online tuition as a result of the COVID-19 situation and this transition has proven extremely successful. Our daughter has continued to thrive with her maths with the online tuition and she really enjoys using the online tools and interaction during her sessions, we have been very impressed with this method. We would highly recommend Nicola’s tuition service and would like to say how grateful we are for her continuing support, professionalism and calm approach; she continues to be a welcome source of relief for our daughter, who before her tuition was finding maths a struggle but now has the understanding and interest to develop and learn and enjoy this subject."
Year 8, July 2020
"Nicola has been tutoring my daughter for about 6 months. She makes her lessons fun and during lockdown her online zoom lessons have been invaluable. My daughter was lacking confidence in maths and literacy and Nicola is really helping her to build confidence, especially in maths which she has made good progress in. I would highly recommend Nicola and her friendly and fun approach to learning."
Year 3, July 2020
"Nicola was excellent to communicate with, always prompt and responsive to messages. She makes sessions fun and we saw an improvement in my son's ability in maths, and in his confidence in the classroom. Many thanks."
Year 6, July 2020
"I just want to send my thanks for offering us online tutoring via Skype. Following a few weeks of face to face lessons, a change in circumstances meant my daughter wouldn’t be able to attend for 3 weeks. Rather than have to cancel you offered us online lessons which I was happy to accept, but to be honest a little sceptical.
I shouldn’t have been. The lessons are structured really well and work perfectly using webcams and online learning tools. You’ve done a really great job of keeping the lessons interesting but also really focused.
We’re happy to continue with our online lessons and have now booked more for the Easter holidays. We highly recommend them and Nicola to anyone."
Year 6, March 2020
"Highly recommended. Using Nicola for SATS maths prep. Lessons very fun and interactive, great communication with Nicola. The interactive online whiteboard is very good and my daughter also said she was `kind`. So very happy."
Year 6, December 2019
"Nicola is working wonders with our 10 year old daughter building her confidence in her ability for maths. She structures the sessions well and takes into account what our daughter is struggling with in Y6. We chose Nicola as she is a qualified teacher and not only can support with Maths confidence but has a great understanding of how anxiety can affect children’s learning and has the skills to help overcome them. Would recommend her as a great support to any child who is struggling"

Nicola enables my sons to grow in confidence to achieve great SATS results."
Year 6, October 2018
"I have been using Nicola to tutor my daughter for a while now. After using a previous home tutor I was reluctant to do it again as the previous tutor was very formal and didn't give the confidence that my daughter needed.
Nicola however is a breath of fresh air, from a little ten year old that hated maths she loves it now and looks forward to Nicola coming.
I would def recommend her. Very flexible, asked lots of questions prior to coming. Her lessons are very well structured, fun and most of all filling our daughter with confidence."
