"Fiona has a fresh and professional approach to tutoring. She spent time understanding our son's needs, and this gave us confidence that her lessons would concentrate on important areas of the curriculum. She delivered focused lessons, and a homework plan that helped our eldest son structure revision for his upcoming exams. Our son liked Fiona because she knew her material well, and was easy to communicate and get along with."
