We contacted Liz to help as our daughter was struggling with her final revision for GCSE history. This was in part due to her teacher running out of time and not completing the course sylabus with the class. Liz came in at short notice and worked on one module of the sylabus in which our daughter achieved an A star bringing her overall history grade up to an A. We were delighted with this and wish we had used Liz earlier to cover the whole course with our daughter  Jim C

I started going to Liz for tutoring after I received a C for my AS level History result, despite my predicted grade of an A which I needed for my university course of choice. Liz was extremely helpful in teaching me how to answer questions and significantly improved my essay writing skills, enabling me to get my A grade in January resits, which I believe I would not have been able to achieve without the help from the tutoring sessions. I then continued with Geography and History tutoring for my final A level exams, and was able to use my knowledge efficiently and effectively to answer questions appropriately, especially during the panic of an exam. The advice and support I received throughout and especially during my revision was invaluable.  Emma G
