Tutoring Testimonials


Lesley Williams, Lisvane.  March 2016.

Our son has an appetite for sports - rugby, football,cross country and an endless capacity for computer games and television browsing. He is, therefore, a 'normal' 13 year old boy!


So you'd expect him to be reluctant to divorce himself from such activities, to jump in a car for a weekly English lesson!   Not once has he complained and I would love to know how Liz managed to to keep his attention and indeed improve his English school work.  His reading and writing has certainly improved, he went from 'middling' to the top of his class in a very short period of time.  Thank you Liz.  If he starts falling behind, we will be back.    

Jamie B who was studying for the University Equivalence Exams says, ......

After receiving my disappointing GCSE result for my English Language on a Thursday in August 2015 - I was devastated as this meant I was not able to progress to the next steps of my career pathway. After searching to locate an English Language tutor for immediate tutoring i located Liz via the internet. What a find!! Liz responded immediately to my call. She arranged one to one sessions from Saturday through to Tuesday (2 hours personal tutoring each day). This was an intensive programme to study at such short notice, however Liz was able accommodate me and provided me with inspirational encouragement with a positive learning environment and rebuilt my knowledge to sit the exam on the following Wednesday. I gained the B grade I required and I was accepted to start my PGCE (Maths and Outdoor Education) course. I will be forever grateful to Liz for her positive approach and for accommodating me at such short notice. It has been an amazing experience working with her.

J says,

"Over the years we've encountered various tutors and I have to say that you have been both very reliable and truly committed. Very much appreciated."
