I am pleased to say that Helen has quickly provided our daughter with the foundational support and also a lot more confidence in the subject. We recently had a parents evening at the school and the teacher believes our daughter has caught up and is now at the same level as the rest of the class… around 4 months ahead of the time we were all expecting.
We will continue to have Helen to support our daughter so that she can capitalise on the learning she is receiving ready for her final year next year.
Thanks to Helen for her effective methods and also her personality which makes the learning for our daughter more fun. Thanks also for being a good tutor and also for your flexibility when we need to make changes to time slots etc.
We appreciate your support and have no hesitation in recommending you to others.
Kind Regards Always

Always punctual with a smile on her face, a pleasure to be taught by!
I wish them every success in their relocation to France and I am delighted they are gaining the confidence in French they require to live in France.
It has been a pleasure teaching them and I am very happy at their progress.
My daughter enjoys her classes and says that she has made things that she couldn't grasp before a lot clearer and also points of grammer that she found difficult to understand at with the teachers at her school she now understands. Helen also makes her classes fun.
