This is how 2 referees rated Saira:
English (Foreign Language)
I'm 31 years old (2016) and I've been a Primary School teacher in London and then Birmingahm before I left the profession in 2014. I am passionate about teaching and I'm not yet ready to fully give it up - I have been tutoring since 2013 and will carry on providing help where and when I can - I currenty work for the Probation Service full time, as an administrator.
I did my BA degree in French and did some travelling before I did my teacher training. I lived in Quebec for a year as part of my degree.
I love teaching and have taught English as an Additional Langauge in Canada, Japan and Romania (as a volunteer). In Japan, I taught English in the French International School and parallel to that I was giving private English tuition to adults mainly.
In Canada, I taught English as a Language Assistant with the British Council in rural Quebec.
I did my teacher training in Southampton and Portsmouth and qualified obtaining QTS status. In 2013, I was fully qualified after passing my induction year. I taught for three years before deciding that tha teaching profession on a full-time basis wasn't for me.
I take things step by step and listen to the needs of my students rather than have a personal agenda. I am also very patient and go with the student's pace - that way, success is more achievable!
I also pitch the sessions at their level gently but gently nudge them to achieve their personal best.

We highly recommend her without any hesitation.
Always on time and always gave feedback after a class.
She was strict and soft and knew how to get the best of my son. Krishna is one of those proper lads who is impatient and gets distracted quickly but Saira using her skills found a way to get him to sit in one place and concentrate. She also made him more responsible and inculcated a habit of structured thinking in his writing skills
I can see good improvement in both writing and communications skills.
I would recommend Saira and would be happy to use her again. I would also like to thank her for her time
