“You’ve really unlocked our son’s self-confidence around his written communication, helping him to find his own voice. The best thing is that he really wants to come back and do more!”

Parent of GCSE student, 2021

Thanks to Lucy our son has managed to make a great start to his first novel. She gave some valuable insight being a writer herself. Lucy is a very patient, friendly and professional tutor. Her gentle tone and her ability to ask the right questions allows our son to process and think for himself to understand the requirements for building a good essay. Lucy is very easy to converse with, she understands him well which makes him feel very much at ease during lessons. It is a pleasure having Lucy tutor or son and we would strongly recommend her to any student wishing to improve their English.
