This was the exchange of words with my son after his first online lesson with Annabel. He feels he has learnt new things and is very excited to continue learning with Annabel. She seems to know what she is doing and is amazing to communicate with.
The online lessons are really convenient and have worked very well for us. We would highly recommend Annabel.
I thoroughly enjoy tutoring your son and look forward to continuing work with him.
I'm so impressed with her cognitive skills in being able to handle my 14 year old son, that I have booked her for English Literature!! Most important my son is happy and learning methods, that are not being addressed in a grammar school!!!
Finally a teacher that enjoys teaching.
I would recommend her to school students and also mature students like myself, who are lacking in confidence.
I am looking forward to my next lesson.
I thoroughly recommend Annabel as an English/Literacy tutor.
My very bright 10 year old son recently left school as he found learning in a classroom environment boring, restricting and unimaginative. He is now home-educated and Annabel makes learning fun, exciting and challenging for him. She caters to his individual needs far more than is possible at school and he looks forward to his lessons with her.
Annabel is highly intellectual (significantly over and above her qualifications) with a fantastically positive attitude. She's also kind, passionate about her teaching and most importantly my son really likes her. I wish i'd found her months ago as she fits my 'perfectionistic' ideal of a person whom can successfully facilitate my son's learning ability, and i really look forward to her tutoring Charlie for many years to come.
She's an absolute gem.
Thank you so much Annabel for being such a STAR and for sharing your time with us to support and further Charlie in his love for learning. I just wish you weren't so busy as i'd be happy for you to tutor him all day long!
Since our first exchange of emails, Annabel demonstrates competence, professionalism and excellent communication skills, I am confident that my son will make good progresses with her.
But what I can say is that he sees Annabel twice a week during the holidays and it is not a struggle to get him to attend, and I have. It had to push or even ask that he complete the homework that is set for him, he does it off his own steam and enjoys it, which is in total contrast to school,
My son is dislexic and due to this and bullying from peers who call him 'stupid' or '' he totally lacks confidence, and this has already changed, and he is again becoming engaged with his learning, and therefore beginning to learn again and enjoy it.
Although he is slightly older than the age that Annabel would teach academic wise, it is a suitable level for Sam and her style suits him perfectly,
She has a strong passion in teaching, and always provide us parents with the useful feedback and target guidance for the student!
We are very impressed to see a progress already coming through.
That's what we want from the tutor. We are very lucky to have Annabel in our boys' education journey!
William looks forward to going to see Annabel twice a week and with Annabels help has passed his year 1 phonics test this week with a score of 39 out of 40, something two months ago we would not have thought possible.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Annabel, and will continue to have William, and in the future his younger brother Robert taught by Annabel.
